Could I benefit from a Jaw/ Chin Implant or Neck Lift? (photos)

I would ideally like a more "chiseled" masculine looking jaw line. I feel as though I have a weak chin, a bit of excess skin under my chin and jaw as well as a very week jaw line. And also a very narrow face I feel like it gives my face a rather feminine quality.  I am concerned that if I were to have an implant my face may become significantly disproportionate as my forehead is quite small and this may lead to an imbalance "heavy" appearing lower face. Please see my pictures I have attached for your reference.

Thanks for your question. The pictures taken are not typical of what is required to evaluate the need for a chin implant. In some of the photos, it appears as though you would definitely benefit , in others it does not.

A physical exam would be best to determine the need to enhance your chin. We are looking for a harmonious profile. That is, one that is not dominated by a  single portion of the face.

Search for a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery with years of experience. I wish you the best on your journey. I hope that the info provided has been helpful. Should you require any further clarification, do not hesitate to contact our institute. We are one of only a few in South Florida that employ a web based program called TouchMD. Through this program potential patients from as far away as California can upload their photos. I then review each and everyone, draw my recommendations on your actual picture. This info is made available to you with the use of a private password that only you will have. TouchMD is private and follows all applicable privacy laws (HIPPA). I answer all questions personally, not through patient coordinators or other marketing individuals. Good Luck
