hi im a male with an ethnic background and last yr i had a chin reduction as i didnt like my long chin. i also wanted him to make my chin "less masculine" and make it pointer. he also shaved the chin back so it was nice from side on. i would like to know that in future if im wanting to make my chin more chiselled only without making it "longer" is that possible with an implant?. is it all about the size and shape? i like the chin length and projection but would like it more chiselled. thanks.
Can I Have A Chin Implant Without Making My Chin Longer?

Creating a chisled chin
Proper evaluation is critical. A chin has to be accessed for horizontal deficiency, vertical deficiency and balance with the middle and upper third of your face. An implant is possible but again given that you have already had surgery a physical exam would be an absolute necessity.
