The chin may not seem like a major player in the realm of facial features, but it has a bigger impact than you may think. The lines and definition of the chin completes the shape of the face and outline the mouth. For men, the chin and jawline are an integral part of a masculine face. Males with a “weak” or undefined chin can lack that masculine look that many desire or find attractive. There are options to strengthen the definition of the chin through plastic surgery, creating the jaw, chin and facial shape that many men, and women, prefer.
One chin enhancement option to add volume to the chin is with a fat transfer. This can be achieved by removing fat from another area on the body like the abdomen and surgically injecting or grafting it to the chin area to change the shape.
Like a fat transfer, dermal fillers can be used to shape the chin and add volume in specific areas. This is a non-surgical option that can be done during a quick office visit, but the results will be temporary and treatments will need to be repeated to maintain the same look.
For a more pronounced difference in the chin, implants can be used to permanently alter the shape of the chin and jawline. This can have the most dramatic effect, but it is also the most invasive. However, the results can be worth the surgery when they help improve self-confidence.
If you want to change the appearance of your chin, there are non-surgical and surgical options available through talented facial plastic surgeons. Schedule your consultation to determine which procedure will get you the results you desire for an enhanced chin and masculine jawline.
