It may or may not be the best option.
Someone's overall facial look or contour is made up primarily by skeletal structures.
People do not generally have a unique facial look because of abnormal fat distribution. Fat transfer is limited in how much volume can be obtained in any single area with a single treatment.
This usually makes it not a viable option for chin augmentation.
Chin implants are typically the gold standard and have a time proven record of working well.
Temporary fillers may also be a viable option and can serve as a sneak preview of what a permanent implant could achieve it.
My best advice for you is to get an accurate and comprehensive assessment made.
Having an understanding of why am you have the physical appearance you do and what you want to accomplish is number one.
After that you can look at all of the treatment options available and choose the best treatment plan. Start by consulting in person with a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area.
