| | Chin Implant Journal - Special Guest Johanna Shares and Takes Your Questions
Hello All I'm usually on the rhinoplasty board, under special guest Johanna but I had to make an appearance here because while I got my nose done, I also had a chin implant. ( You can see just before picture now, I will be putting in after ones also). Now, my surgeon kept saying how he uses human tissue, and it will just become part of me in about 6 months. Stupid me here, not even thinking in terms of cadaver, nodding her head. I had my surgery done January 8th of this year though, put in vertically on the inside of my lower lip, looks so wonderful already I'm almost glad I didn't ask anymore questions because I might have been weirded out!. He said that this way the bone doesn't get worn away by artificial implants. So that's my experience so far - my chin looks absolutely perfect, with no numbness. My nose on the other hand.... much bigger of a healing process. Okay, hope I gave some needed info!
