Chin augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery treatments in the country. It’s thought that chin augmentation a procedure in which a chin implant is used to reshape the appearance of the chin and/or jawline has become more popular because more men are becoming comfortable with the idea of undergoing cosmetic surgery.
Men who may feel that they don’t have the classic “masculine” jawline can correct a weak chin with a simple chin augmentation procedure. Women can benefit from this surgery as well, especially if they have weaker or poorly-defined jawlines. The treatment is quick, with minimal recovery time and high rates of patient satisfaction.
But that doesn’t mean everyone is happy with how his or her new jawline looks after the procedure. Although rarely needed, can a chin implant be removed if you’re unhappy with how it looks.
Quick and Painless Chin Implant Removal

What made you so unhappy about your results from your first chin augmentation? Consider your answers to these questions, as they can provide you with valuable feedback as to what you should do once the original implant is out.
