Hi, I'm wondering if chin augmentation would be helpful for my profile. I also prefer a sharper more feminine Asian chin that's not very rounded, since I'm half Chinese. Thanks

Chin Implants Often Make a Dramatic Improvement
Judging from your pictures, it appears you might be an excellent candidate for a chin augmentation with "mentoplasty", or chin implant procedure. See a surgeon who performs mentoplasty regularly and can use digital imaging during your consultation to "show" what you'd look like after the surgery. Discuss concerns about your ethnicity with him/her at that time. I think you'd probably be very pleased with the outcome from this simple procedure. As for the surgery itself, the last one I performed took 14 minutes, so while it can yield major results, it is not major surgery.
Chin Implant for Sharper Features
To create a more angular face with a more prominent chin, a narrower implant with good projection can be placed or custom contoured to your specifications. Please find a board certified plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials to perform your surgery. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA
Looking at your photos, it appears you are a great candidate for a chin augmentation. I would recommend visiting a facial plastic surgeon who uses computer imaging software. He or she will be able to morph a photo of you and give you an idea of how the final result may appear. Choose an experienced and board certified surgeon who has great credentials, a variety of before and after photos, and great patient testimonials. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.

Patients with a retrussive chin are excellent candidates for a chin augmentation.
