I am considering chin augmentation. What are the chances that a chin implant can shift positions?
This is an excellent question and a common concern for patients who are considering having their chin or jaw line better defined. The chin implants we use have a very natural consistency to them, and the technique that we use for chin augmentation stabilizes the chin to the underlying framework so the potential for the implant to shift is very minimal, and I have not seen this occur in many years with the implants that we have placed. So, in summary, the chin implant provides stable augmentation that lasts over a very long time.
