The Benefits of Chin Augmentation
Submitted by Dr. Joyesh Raj on Wed 05/24/2023 - 09:25
Many people consider the eyes, lips, and nose to be the most noticeable parts of the face. However, the chin is an often-overlooked facial feature that can have a dramatic impact on how attractive your face is. You may not often look at a face and say, “What a beautiful chin,” but you certainly notice when someone has a “weak” chin that gives the face an irregular shape. For that reason, you may decide to cosmetically augment your chin if it is underdeveloped. Below, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joyesh Raj explains some of the benefits of this popular procedure.
Enhancing Your Weak Chin
Chin augmentation is most enticing to patients who have a recessed chin. If your chin has a flat or sunken appearance, chin augmentation adds some millimeters that can transform the contours of your chin.
Strengthening Your Jawline
Having definition at the bottom of your face can improve your overall attractiveness. By extending your chin, your jawline should become moderately sharper, offsetting the jowls that may form from skin laxity that accompanies aging.
Achieving Facial Harmony
Beauty is often a matter of proportions. When your nose and chin lack harmony, it can disrupt the balance of your face. If you do not like the size or projection of your nose, you may find that it looks less prominent once you augment your chin.
Minimizing a Double Chin
Another benefit of chin augmentation is that it can eliminate or reduce the appearance of submental (chin) fat. By extending the chin, you can achieve nicer contours for the chin without having to lose weight.
Choosing a Procedure That Works for You
Dr. Raj can augment your chin a few different ways. The most popular option is with a silicone chin implant. Fat transfer moves excess fat from another area of your body and reimplants it to your chin. Sliding genioplasty surgically advances the lower jawbone to give the chin extra length. Ultimately, it is up to you which option you feel most comfortable with.
No matter which option you choose, all three of these surgeries offer long-lasting results that should extend throughout your life. However, if you are looking for something more temporary, you can try a dermal filler to add volume to your chin before deciding if you would like a permanent option.
