I have a pointy chin when I smile or talk (look pretty much like Alexandra Ambrosio) and the problem seems to be coming from the skin or muscle and not from the bone it self, so I wanted to know if it was possible to make it rounder without putting an implant. Thank you

Making a pointy chin rounder
The only way to make a chin more round at rest is to put a Mittelman pre-jowel implant which will augment only the sidewalls. There will not be any anterior chin projection, simply sidewall augmentation. This can be done under a local anesthesia.
Making a Pointy Chin Rounder
If you want to round off your chin, fillers and fat grafting could be reasonable alternatives to chin implant.
Subtle changes in your chin contour can be accomplished using fillers such as Juvederm or Radiesse or the injection of your own fat which would last longer. Be careful and conservative because you have a well-defibned jawline.
