I had genioplasty to replace an old chin implant at The Face Dental with Dr. Lee. He is in Korea but Dr. Lee speaks great English. I’m not Korean but I never felt a language barrier.
For some background, I had a chin implant placed 5 years ago. I never really liked it completely because it looked unnatural and big. But over the years, I kind of got used to it, combined with the fact that I really didn’t want to get more surgery, I never took any action. However I became more and more uneasy about potential long-term side effects. And I thought, if I was going to have to fix it at some point, maybe it’s better to do it earlier.
The surgery went well, Dr. Lee saw me right after and assured me that we are very close to our ideal results. He and his staff were super kind and accommodating. You guys can see the big improvement in the picture and how much more natural the contour looks after the implant removal and genioplasty with Dr. Lee!
I am at 6 months post op now, although there is still some tightness and reduced sensation around the chin and slight numbness on the lower lip, but I believe it’ll get better over time (and even at this point it’s manageable).
In terms of the chin I’m super happy with the appearance! The height and projection is perfect for me and it looks complete natural. I don’t shy away from seeing my chin in the mirror now, actually I love the contour. I’m so happy with Dr. Lee’s work! All in all I would really recommend TFD for bone contouring. The results are clearly good but the care is amazing as well. Dr. Lee is extremely nice and patient, it never felt like he was in a rush and always addressed my concerns.
I’ll be going back to TFD and get the fixation removed by Dr Lee, and at that point my chin journey will finally be over! I will share some more pictures once that happens. ^^
