Unhappy with profile after weight loss
Your photos suggest a neck lift (tightening of the muscle and removing any residual fat) is likely to improve your profile.
You need a careful facial exam before having a chin implant- in profile, you chin is not recessed and in Side Profile 1 is quite prominent. You do have a deep cleft between your lower lip and chin.
You may need a reset of the bone of the chin or depending on proportions, You should see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon - in Australia a member of the College of Australasian Plastic Surgeons - with experience in orthognathic surgery. Best wishes.

Thank you for your question and photos! I believe you would be a great candidate for the chin implant procedure.
These are some tips to consider when choosing a plastic surgeon:
1) Choose a board certified plastic or facial plastic surgeon and visit several offices
2) Seek a surgeon who does at least 100 surgeries per year
3) Internet discussion doesn't replace the advice of your physician
4) You could consider a small implant or a temporary filler to bridge into an implant
5) Computer imaging is very helpful to understand the targeted result
