A strong, sharp chin and jawline have always been considered the foundation of an attractive, masculine face. That’s because a powerful chin balances out the rest of your facial features and strengthens your profile. If you’ve always had a recessed or “weak” chin, or you feel that aging has taken a toll on the appearance of your jawline, you may benefit from chin augmentation.
Chin augmentation surgery can refine your chin and redefine your jawline through the placement of a specially designed chin implant. This brings your features into harmony, sharpens your profile, and highlights your strongest features.
Your Chin Augmentation Consultation
The best way to determine if chin augmentation is a good option for you is to schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. Our surgeons have many years of experience working with male plastic surgery patients and an advanced understanding of male facial structure. Choosing a surgeon who understands the unique differences between male and female anatomy and aesthetic goals is imperative to having a positive outcome.
During your appointment, one of our surgeons will evaluate your natural facial structure, listen to your concerns, and help design a plan that meets your goals. Your chin implant will be specially designed for your face to enhance your natural appearance and create a proportionate, balance appearance. Facial implants are made out of a bio-compatible, safe silicone that is strong, durable, and elastic.
What to Expect from Male Chin Augmentation
Chin enhancement is typically performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with IV sedation. Your surgeon will begin by placing a small, inconspicuous incision either under the chin in the natural skin fold or just inside the lower lip. Depending on your needs, the “sliding osteotomy” method may be used, which involves permanently moving a portion of your chin forward. Your custom-fitted implant will be precisely placed through the incision and adjusted until the desired result has been achieved.
We will apply a small pressure dressing over the chin to help promote proper healing and maintain your results. Any initial discomfort you experience should resolve quickly and can be easily managed with oral medication. Swelling, slight tenderness, and even some local numbness are temporary and should subside within a month or two.
Other Facial Procedures to Enhance Chin Augmentation
Improving the appearance of other features in conjunction with chin augmentation surgery can create an overall stronger, sharper appearance. Some common procedures combined with chin augmentation include:
- Nose reshaping to further strengthen the profile and bring proportion and harmony to the face
- Neck lift to refine the jawline and reduce appearance of jowls
- Laser skin resurfacing to provide an overall healthier appearance to the facial skin
