Should I Get a Chin Implant?

I'm 23 years old and considering getting chin implants in thailand, my jaw line is not so strong and have quite a long face, any expert advice as to what I should do would be great. Thanks

It looks like you are upside down in this photo, which makes it difficult to asses the need for an implant. If you press a pen gently to your lips in the midline of your face just under the Nose, and your chin still is not touched by the pen, you may want to see a board certified Facisl Plastic Surgeon and allow him/her, to examine you, if they state you are a viable candidate for the surgery, you would probably benefit  from the added chin projection.This is a straight forward procedure needing only to develop a small pocket under the chin with an incision, followed by introducing a solid silicone implant. If you can keep it positioned well during the healing phase( first 3 months) it will become a part of you and you will find it very hard to displace it.M.Lyons,MD

Your photo is not extremely clear but it does appear that your chin is underprojecting and may indeed benefit from a chin implant. My recommendation would be to obtain one or more consultations from a local plastic surgeon and then make your decision.

Having surgery in Thailand does not seem to be a prudent choice here.
