Am I a candidate for a chin implant? (Photo)
Doctor Answers 4
Even though you have a beard and it is not entirely possible to clearly see the outline of your jaw, enough of it can be seen to determine that you would be a good candidate for a chin implant. Chin implants come in many different shapes and sizes and you should consult your doctor on the appropriate implant for you to get the most appropriate projection and width.

I have found that placement of a silastic chin implant, through a small curved incision under the chin (also allows excess skin removal) to be very safe, quick, highly effective and far less invasive than a sliding genioplasty. I perform chin implant surgery in 30 minutes or less, often using a local anesthetic alone. In my opinion, you are a good candidate for chin implant surgery.
Hope this helps.
