Chin implants can provide nice improvement to your profile
It appears as though a chin implant could improve your profile nicely. I can place the implant through a small incision under your chin or from inside the gumline if you don't want any scars. The procedure takes about an hour with minimal downtime and recovery. Thank you for your question!Dr. Schreiber, Baltimore plastic surgeon

Candidate for chin implant?
Following the beauty principles outlined in my book on face and body beauty, men look chiseled and handsome with angularity in the cheeks, chin and mandibular angles. From the photos, your cheeks are flat anteriorly (in the front), the chin is weak as are the mandibular angles and there is excess facial fat in front and below the cheeks. This combines to create an elongated oval shaped face. The following procedures would create a more ruggedly handsome face.
- Cheek augmentation with cheek implants to add angularity to the cheeks and mid face. This would be combined with liposuction to reduce the excess facial fat to further define the cheek shape.
- Chin augmentation, using a chin implant, to add projection to the chin creating harmony and balance to the lower face as discussed above. This can be combined with removal of excess skin and fat.
- Augmentation of the mandibular angles using a dermal filler (jaw implants have too many unwanted side effects IMHO) to add volume, angularity and flare to the jaw line.
