Your chin implant is beautiful Johanna. I haven't heard of this human tissue implant before either. I would have been squeamish to go through with the operation too if I knew what it was. Best wishes on your healing journey.

Your story is so interesting! How wonderful that you were able to overcome your nose problems and come out ahead! Is the healing still coming along OK?

My doctor said he is one of the only ones that uses human tissue because it does not wear away the bone like the more common procedures. It becomes a part of you in about 6 months, and that's it. I had little bruisings, and a very quick and practically painless recovery. Unlike in regular chin implants, the ridges are must softer and impossible to recognize. I am 100 % happy. There is nothing (except the fact that it IS putting dead person in you) that is not positive about my results!

Is the final result feel softer or the same as a traditional chin implant? I like how they went in through your mouth though so u didn't have to have a chin scar; although I think I will have to have one from my necklift regardless. Your chin looks much improved and your profile is now really beautiful.

You are right about the prominent ridges with traditional implants. Even when they are custom made or filed down, they can still be felt. Did you receive back your operating report? I would be fascinated to know more.

Try not to think of it as putting dead person inside you. Remember it is quite common to use donor tissues and organs for all sorts of medical procedures. Often people aren't even aware a donor part is being used. I don't see any better way to help other people when you die, then to give your own body if it's usable. If I were hit by a car today and died, it would save several people with my organs and help others with my tissues such as eyes, bone, etc. There's nothing to be ashamed about here. The people who donate these things upon death do it knowing others will be using them, so there's no need to feel guilty about that aspect. However of course it can be frightening to think about it in general so just try not to.

Your surgeon did a perfect job on the chin implant. A+ to that doctor!
