Chin Augmentation For Protruding Mouth

+2

Based on this one single photo, you certainly do not need a chin reduction. Conversely, you more likely need chin augmentation due to a mildly weak chin for a male. That may be why people say your 'mouth protrudes' because your chin is weak. Computer imaging would demonstrate that potential benefit.

Chin does not need reduction

+1

Based on this one photo it would appear that your chin appears to have normal prominence and I would not recommend chin implant.  Possibly some liposuction of the neck would give better neck/jaw definition.  Best of luck to you.
