you have a weak chin based on these photos. Contrary to your statement, chin implants are permanent and will outlast your decomposing bones after your life is over.

Sliding Genioplasty vs Chin Implant
You have a very weak chin with a significant horizontal deficiency. This is ideally treated by a sliding genioplasty (moving the chin bone) which can make more of a horizontal change than most-off-shelf implants. (short of a custom design) There is no reason to fear a chin implant as they are permanent and have no risk of moment if screwed into placed.
Have I got a weak chin?
Yes, you do have a weak chin. A chin implant is typically a permanent solution for this problem and his short downtime. There is a small risk of malposition of the implant but this is very uncommon. If you also have significant problems with the way that your teeth fit together then a jaw advancement surgery could improve your profile while also improving your bite. I hope this information is helpful.
