Would a chin implant improve my weak profile? (photo)

I have a short/weak chin which causes my facial features to look scrunched up. Would a chin implant make a difference? I'm 19 years old right now so I'm not looking to rush into anything, but I'm just checking out my options for the future.

Would a chin implant improve my weak profile?

I think a chin implant will produce a nice improvement.

Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of facial procedures and chin implants each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
