Great Non Surgical Chin Implant Experience With Dr. Mabrie
Procedure specific satisfaction rating
I had a wonderful experience with Dr. David Mabrie in San Francisco. I had been going to Dr. Mabrie for Botox and decided to ask him about chin augmentation surgery. He told me that because my chin was only slightly recessed, I was a good candidate for non-surgical chin enhancement. He told me this could safely and easily be done in his office and discussed the fillers that were most frequently used for this procedure. At his recommendation, I decided to go with Radiesse and needed 2 syringes at a cost of $1100 a syringe.
The procedure was as quick and easy as Dr. Mabrie explained it to me. He very carefully injected me in the sides of my chin and then underneath my chin, stopping along the way to closely see if the filler was going in evenly. He also handed my a mirror at certain points during the procedure to make sure I was happy with my injections. The procedure was not uncomfortable at all. I would say it was more comfortable than going to your dentist for your annual teeth cleaning.
I really didn't have any swelling or bruising after my procedure was over. I had immediate results and I left Dr. Mabrie's office without a weak chin. It was a very elating experience.
My new chin really enhances my facial features and the only negative is that I'll have to go back to have the procedure done again after 8-12 months. The only pain this whole experience cost me was in my pocket. I am happy with my results and I think it's preferable to go with a non-surgical procedure like this vs. the traditional chin implant method which requires surgery.
