Consider Chin Augmentation Surgery to balance your facial features
Chin surgery is a surgical procedure performed to balance the face. In some cases, it may be performed with other facial procedures or maybe part of facial reconstruction.
All of your facial features should all be proportionate to each other. If your lower jaw is set back or undersized, it can portray a weaker jaw and project a less masculine appearance. By using the correct aesthetic judgement, a specialist plastic surgeon can provide an enhanced jaw profile with the combination of either a chin implant or repositioning the bone along with liposuction of the jawline to create a sculpted jaw which projects strength.
Combined chin and nose surgeries may be beneficial for some patients
Many times a plastic surgeon may recommend chin surgery to a patient having rhinoplasty in order to achieve facial proportion, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose. Recessed Chin along with sagging neck skin or a double chin? You might need a facelift, neck lift, neck liposuction or under-chin fat reduction injections. Or if you have a double chin appearance, either neck lift surgery with liposuction (with or without a chin implant) or fat-reduction injections under the chin or jawline, may be of benefit to some men.
Benefits of having balanced facial features including chin augmentation surgery for men
Chin surgery can provide a more harmonious balance to your facial features so that you feel better about the way you look. It is a popular surgery for men who feel their chin is “not shaped quite right” in relation to their other facial features or desired jawline.
“When you feel better about the way you look, you tend to have more confidence. When you have more confidence, you will tend to feel you have greater choices in life.”
Recessed chins have been described as looking soft or appearing indented/inverted, even fleshy looking. This can leave a perception of a weaker, less masculine chin, jawline and social-profile.
Patients of chin augmentation have reported:
- Improved appearance confidence
- Less self-consciousness about being photographed or seen from the side
- Improved sense of attractiveness or facial masculinity
Chin augmentation surgery can bring your facial features into greater harmony with each other. Chin surgery helps refine your jawline and balance your overall facial appearance or “facial structure” by improving proportions and facial feature alignment.
