Were you born with a weak chin? Or has the aging process left your jawline looking less defined than it used to? You may be a good candidate for chin augmentation. This straightforward procedure adds volume and a slight protrusion at the bottom of the face to improve attractiveness and facial harmony. Renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Christopher Craft offers chin augmentation with chin implants at his practice in Miami. Continue reading to learn how this procedure can add balance to your face.
Why Facial Harmony Matters
One thing that most conventionally attractive faces have in common is balance. This means that the sizes and lengths of the facial features are all in proportion to each other. A chin is one of the most important parts of the face for establishing harmony. When the chin does not jut outward to a standard length, this can exaggerate the proportions of your other features. For example, your nose may appear bigger or your neck may look less distinct from your face.
The importance of having a balanced chin is even more obvious in profile. A sideview of a recessed (weak) chin makes your jawline look less defined. Having a sharp jaw is considered attractive on both men and women.
How a Chin Implant Can Help
Chin augmentation is easily achieved with the help of a silicone chin implant. These implants come in various shapes and sizes to best suit your face and personal preferences. Making a discreet incision under the face, Dr. Craft can insert the implant so that it rests against the chin bone indefinitely. Patients are thrilled to discover that this procedure has less downtime and discomfort than other forms of plastic surgery.
Not only does chin augmentation add some extra volume to your face, it can also make your other features less prominent in comparison. For some patients, it can help to minimize early signs of jowls by adding some length to the jawline.
