I see this topic as a point of discussion on many plastic and cosmetic surgery forums. The reality is that almost everyone who gets a chin implant has some degree of bone resorption following the surgery. But this fact should not be something that is a great source of anxiety over having a chin implant procedure. The bone resorption that most cosmetic chin augmentation patients get following the implant placement is fairly minor. In fact, most patients, once healed, don’t even really notice there has been any resorption. So, although there is some resorption of bone after chin reshaping with an implant, almost everyone gets it and this typically does not detract from the cosmetic chin enhancement results.
