should i get chin augmentation
i have some questions concerning my chin i'm wondering the best procedure for correcting it to make my face asymmetrical. i have seen photos of people with chin implants and overall there faces look obviously altered. i guess i would like to have something more natural if anything . my thought was to have the length increased without adding anything thing else. what r your thoughts?

Tough to tell from the pictures, but your length looks ok, actually. you may benefit from a bit more projection. in order to assure yourself of the most natural results, i would consider doing this with filler injections. results are subtle and you can see if you like it without committing to a permanent procedure.
