Create a Strong Jaw Line With Injections or Chin Implants
Chin implant plastic surgery is a long-lasting solution for those who suffer from a weak chin or jaw line. The medical term for this procedure is mentoplasty and it involves the insertion of implants made of biocompatible silicone to fit around the jaw bone. Chin implant surgery is sometimes combined with nose surgery for better results.
During the initial consultation, your surgeon will determine your candidacy and create a customized surgical plan to match your unique needs. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides chin and jaw line enhancement surgery to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding communities.
What is a weak chin and jaw?
A chin which slopes backwards is called a weak or receding chin. If the chin is also small in size, it makes the jaw look undefined, and this is called a weak jawline. In women with a weak chin and jaw, their nose tends to look large in comparison to the rest of their face. In men, a weak jawline detracts from the masculine appearance of the face which undermines their appeal to the opposite sex and in society.
In some persons who have a narrow or short chin, the neck and chin seem to merge into each other. This can cause a “double chin” appearance even if there are no fat deposits below the chin.
What are the benefits of chin implants?
A receding chin makes the face look rounder. When chin implants are used, it changes the angle of the jawline to give it greater definition. This makes the chin look stronger and separate from the neck.
When you have a receding chin, the other features of your face appear more prominent, leading to a lack of balance. Chin implant surgery helps to restore the balance of different facial features, and makes your face look more appealing.
A small or receding chin can mar the side profile of your face. The nose too appears disproportionate. Chin augmentation with implant surgery makes the chin appear more substantive. This reduces the impression of a large nose and makes it blend it better with other facial features. Overall, chin augmentation can also give you an attractive side profile.
Which surgery is best for a weak chin?
When a receding chin is the only problem, the plastic surgeon may recommend a simple chin augmentation surgery. In this, they make a small cut below the chin, fashion out a surgical pocket, and insert a silicone implant that has been customized to fit your jaw.
If the cosmetic surgeon feels that fat deposits below the chin are giving you a “double chin”, they may advise a neck liposuction procedure to remove the excess fat. When this is combined with a chin implant, it can make a dramatic change to the appearance of your chin and jawline.
In persons who have lax skin in the face and neck region, the surgeon may recommend a facelift or a neck lift along with chin augmentation cosmetic surgery for better results. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon receives patients from Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and nearby areas for chin and jaw line contouring surgery.
