I am 22 and have a very weak chin and unappealing profile. I feel like this make my face look round, my nose look big and gives me no overall definition. I am 5'6 140 lbs and I feel that my my face makes me look larger than I really am. When I was younger I had braces to correct a moderate overbite (which seems corrected). Would I be a candidate for chin fillers, chin implant, or corrective jaw surgery?

Chin implant for recessive chin profile
If your dentition is adequate and you simply want to improve the chin profile from a cosmetic standpoint, then a chin implant is all that is required. Chin implants are manufactured in a variety of sizes and shapes, are composed of Silastic, and are inserted through a sub mental approach under local anesthesia.
