Can chin implant elongate the face? E.g placed forward and downward? Do dermal fillers give same results as chin implants?

Filler results tend to be rather subtle for the chin. If you try to use a lot to get more effect then other problems will crop up. Go for the implant.

I've got a round shaped face and would like to make it longer, so instead of choosing a jaw reshaping surgery, i was thinking of
When the chin is weak, this creates an imbalance that makes the nose appear larger, the lower face short and the mid face appear top heavy while de-emphasizing the lips and allowing early "double chin" formation. Chin augmentation, using a chin implant, will add projection to the chin creating harmony and balance to the lower face. I have found placing a silastic chin implant through a small, curved, incisions under the chin to be very safe, quick, highly effective and far less invasive than a sliding genioplasty that requires bone cuts with placement of screws and metal plates. I perform Chin Augmentation in 30 minutes or less, ofthen using local anesthesia alone.
Hope this helps.
