In brief: Yes

There are different techniques to address the chin and facial balance.
One of the most common is chin implants. This can be done as an outpatient procedure to strengthen or reshape the chin and jaw line, or to provide better overall symmetry to the face. The other area to consider if you have concerns about your chin would be your nose. Facial balance between these two areas is a common issue.
