Chin implant and neck liposuction to define chin and jawline

The combination of a chin implant and neck liposuction will give a better jawline and chin definition. Chin implants are manufactured in a variety of sizes and shapes, are inserted through a submental approach under local anesthesia. The liposuction the neck can also be performed under local anesthesia as well.

You appear to be a good candidate for chin implant and submental liposuction.  I think it would enhance your profile.
