A well-proportioned chin can give you an attractive profile, jawline, and neckline. It can also help give a sense of your exact age. Dr. John Freeman offers chin enhancement if you do not have a symmetrical facial appearance and need to enhance your chin.
Before you undergo chin augmentation, your surgeon will determine if you are physically fit and healthy. You need to be relatively young, not smoke, and have no severe health problems.
A board-certified plastic surgeon will insert an implant adjacent to your jawbone. Your surgeon will need to create a small cut in your mouth to enable the placement of an implant in the right position.
After implant insertion, your surgeon will close the cut on the skin. Then, the surgeon wraps the wound with a bandage to avoid infections and promote healing. Below are common reasons you should consider having chin surgery or augmentation.
Fix weakened chin
Your chin can become weaker and diminish because of genetic factors. The genes you inherit from your mother, father, or grandfather can make you have a weakened and diminished chin.
A soft chin can also result from a physical injury that affects the mandible sitting underneath the maxilla. The chin bone is the only bone that moves in your skull and thus can be easily affected by an injury.
Enhance your figure
If you want to know if you are an ideal candidate for a procedure to augment your chin, you should look at your profile. As you side-view your profile, see if there is a proper balance between your nose, forehead, and chin.
For example, a weakened chin often makes your nose appear more pronounced. As a result, your surgeon can subject you to chin improvement and a nose job. Nasal surgery is effective for reconstructing and shaping the soft tissues of the nose to enhance its function and appearance.
A nose job and the procedure for enhancing the chin can help improve your overall profile. That is possible since your plastic surgeon makes your facial traits more balanced.
Get a stronger and well-outlined jawline
You can keep your jawline healthy and chiseled by doing certain exercises and getting a haircut that suits your facial shape. Moreover, you should remain hydrated by drinking plenty of fluids and water and reducing salt intake.
But, those solutions might still not guarantee a stronger, well-defined jawline. As a result, your plastic surgeon can advise you to undergo chin surgery. Inserting implants or an implant in the area around your chin bone can make it stronger and more well-defined.
If aging makes your jawbone weak and your jawline poorly outlined, your plastic surgeon may also utilize other cosmetic procedures. For example, you may need a rhytidectomy to reduce facial sagging to deliver a younger, plumper look.
You can also require improvement or refinement of the bone contour of your chin region because of trauma or injury. Augmenting the jaw or chin can be part of the overall procedure to reconstruct your face.
