A strong chin and jawline bring balance to the entire face. People with poorly defined jawlines, particularly men, may feel self-conscious about the way they look. Luckily, there are cosmetic procedures available to those interested in improving the definition, shape and contours of their lower face. In this post, Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Charles S. Lee of Enhance® Medical Center discusses how to create a stronger chin and jawline.
Your Jawline Impacts Your Profile
Your chin and jawline have a big impact on how your face appears when viewed from the side. If you have a recessed chin, it can cause your nose to look bigger. The proportions of your face may seem unbalanced.
If you carry extra weight around your neck and jaw area, this can weaken the prominence of your chin. However, genetics also play a big role. A small chin bone can result in the appearance of a double chin, even if you have relatively low body fat.
How to Improve Your Jawline
Only an experienced plastic surgeon such as Dr. Lee of Enhance® Medical Center can accurately analyze your facial structure and determine the best way to improve your jawline. Liposuction and/or neck lift can produce great results for those with the right bone structure. Excess skin or fatty tissue that is obscuring your jawline can be removed to reveal a more angular facial appearance.
Those with small or recessed chins may want to consider a chin augmentation procedure. Your plastic surgeon will place a small implant around your existing chin bone to increase the projection and definition of your jawline.
Chin Implants Can Improve Your Jawline
Chin implant surgery can typically be completed in around an hour or less. Most patients are back to their normal activities within a week.
A skilled plastic surgeon can make your chin appear more pronounced while still giving you a natural look. Your nose may appear smaller and the appearance of a double chin can be greatly reduced. These changes will be immediately noticeable when viewing your face from the side.
