Many men and women desire a well-defined chin and jawline. For some, a strong jawline conveys the impression of power, strength, determination, and dominance. If you have concerns about the appearance of your chin, you should know that a chin implant may be able to help. This procedure involves implanting a device into the chin to enhance definition and create a more prominent appearance. Here is what you need to know.
How Is a Chin Implant Surgery Performed?
A chin implant surgery involves making a small incision in the mouth or below the chin line. A small implant is then inserted into the discrete incision and placed around the existing chin bone. The implants are customized to fit the facial structure of the patient, ensuring a comfortable fit that looks and feels natural.
After surgery, you will want to refrain from engaging in any significant physical activities for around two weeks to allow your chin to heal.
How Does a Chin Implant Help?
Getting a chin implant can result in several positive changes to your facial profile. Some of the ways this procedure helps include:
- Strengthening the appearance of your chin
- Creating a more attractive and triangular jawline
- Creating more symmetry
- Reducing the appearance of chin dimpling
- Balancing your chin and nose for improved harmony
- Increasing the height and width of your chin
- Minimizing the appearance of a double-chin
Creating a more prominent jawline can help to improve your self-esteem and provide you with that boost of confidence that you need.
If you feel like your face is not proportionate due to the shape, size, or position of your chin, this procedure may benefit you. We encourage you to reach out to our skilled professionals for a consultation so that we can discuss your options and answer any questions you may have.
