Would A Square Chin Implant And Buccal Lipectomy Help Make My Face Less Round?


Q: Dr. Eppley, I previously had surgery to install Implantech’s Flower Mandibular Glove in size L https://www.implantech.com/product/flowers-mandibular-glove/ 

Unfortunately, I had to remove the chin implant due to an infection from a fishing-related accident; a fishing hooking was lodged into my chin – and an infection ensued. 

Instead of going with same implant I am thinking to add a square chin implant style.

I feel like I have a round face feel like It could be improved with more of square chin and square jawline … I also plan to have buccal fat removal done as well. 

I would really appreciate your opinion on this. 

I have attached photos with and without the implant

A:Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. Sorry to hear about the fishing accident….that is a new one for getting a chin implant infected based on my experience. When selecting a new chin implant style, the one advantage you have is that you had a prior chin implant style and you know what look that created. Certainly a square chin implant style would produce a less round look and the style 2 is appropriate for your face as the style 1 has too narrow a chin width. With your rounder face the buccal lipectomy can only help. The combination of a new square chin implant with the buccal lipectomy, together, will help your facial reshaping efforts better than either one alone.
