Blame it on social media, selfies and video chat – or your mirror – but you might have started to notice your chin, for all the wrong reasons. And many of us begin to feel self-conscious and unhappy about our sagging jaw lines as we age.
So it makes sense that statistics from The American Society of Plastic Surgeons show that “chinplants” are one of the fastest growing procedures in the U.S. among men and women of all ages.
Here are some of the not-so-attractive reasons our patients are telling us they want chin augmentation, and how it can help:
“My neck looks fleshy.”
Chin implant surgery can bring all your facial features into harmony, balancing your overall facial appearance.
“My nose looks bigger than it should.”
Chin implants add definition to your jaw and can balance the appearance of your nose.
“The bottom of my face doesn’t fit with the top of my face.”
If you feel that your chin is not shaped right in relation to the rest of your face the procedure can bring proportion to your chin, and provide balance and definition to other facial features.
“My chin is making me look older than I am.”
The chin and jawline are among the first areas to show signs of aging. Chin implants can make a dramatic difference when it comes to restoring a more youthful appearance.
Some help keeping your chin up
Once in place, a chin implant can give you a strong, natural-looking jaw line. And by providing balance to your face, a chin implant can give you a younger and more attractive appearance. Chin implants are used to enlarge or advance your chin, but some patients actually choose chin reduction because they want their jaw to appear less prominent
