Chin Implant Los Angeles - Who's Best?
For chin implants, who is the best Los Angeles plastic surgeon for this procedure? I naturally have a receding chin and although this isn't necessarily a health problem it does make me very self conscious. I think on women this isn't as much of a problem but when you are a male and you have a weak chin and jaw it really doesn't look good.

I would like to get a chin implant where the results are subtle. In fact I would love it if my friends and family didn't even notice I had it done, instead they just notice I look better but aren't able to pinpoint why exactly. Is this possible or will the change be drastic?

If anyone can recommend a great Los Angeles cosmetic surgeon that does excellent work and is affordable please let me know.

I do not have a specific surgeon to recommend for this procedure, but what I can say is that usually the "less is more" approach is best here. As mentioned you do not want a night and day change. I am no doctor but I would advise on a smaller sized implant. Usually the difference between a receding chin and a normal one is not as much as you think; a small sized chin implant often is sufficient.

I think this is a pretty straightforward operation so you don't necessarily need to pay for the top surgeon in LA. I would just recommend though to make sure you don't go with an implant that's too big because I think that's where people mess up. It would be better to under augment than over augment in my opinion. Because if you go too small you can always do filler to make it bigger. If you get too big the only way to fix it is to remove it.
