Chin implants are the one of the fastest growing plastic surgery procedures in the Tampa area. One reason for the dramatic increase in the number of new chin implants is the advent of video calling (such as FaceTime) and more visual social media. People sitting in front of their computer cameras are seeing, more vividly, the look of their lower face and chin. For those that are not pleased with their physical profile, turning to a plastic surgeon is one way to help to strengthen the appeal of their chin and help create a more pleasing image for the camera.
A strong chin has always been associated with power and vigor. Both men and women, value a prominent jaw line for the way give symmetry to the face and provides a good framework that sets off the rest of their facial features. Take a look at the most well-known actors and actresses of our time and you will see that most, if not all, have a clearly defined chin. If you are born with a broad jaw, then you are one of the lucky ones. For those with weak or narrow chins, it is difficult to hide this feature in anyway or use make-up to improve your appearance in this area. In fact, a weak chin often shows signs of aging sooner, especially if there is any extra facial fat, because jowls will develop more noticeably along a smaller jaw and chin.
How Chin Plants can Improve Appearance
The advent of chin implants is not a recent development in the field of plastic surgery. The first chin-plant surgery was actually done in the late 1920’s but much has changed since those first new chin augmentation surgeries. One of the most important changes in chin implant surgery is the material used as the base for the enhanced chin. No longer are rib bones, ivory or metal used as the chin extender, now highly specialized materials such as silicone, PTFE and polyethylene can all be easily customized into the right shape and size required for each individual. This allows surgeons to more easily craft the right chin to match the rest of the facial features and give a more natural appearance.
The size of the chin in relation to the nose is one of the ways in which beauty is measured (even if not by conscious choice). When shown a series of pictures of people in profile and straight on, the ones with the more prominent chin and straighter nose will generally be chosen as the most attractive. No matter what culture is surveyed, the size and shape of the chin is always a factor in how highly rated a person is in terms of handsomeness. A well-done chin implant can greatly improve a person’s overall facial beauty and increase their self-confidence.
How to Choose a Chin Implant Surgeon
A chin implantation involves quite a bit of skill on the part of the plastic surgeon, so it is important to work with a well-qualified practitioner that has had much experience with chin augmentation. Because the chin is one feature that must look good in all directions, make sure that you choose a plastic surgeon that specializes in implantation and has done many other successful surgeries before make a decision based on price or any other factor. According to Dr. Dominic Castellano of Elite Facial Plastic Surgery, it takes not just the medical knowledge to do a successful chin implant but also requires a good eye that can visualize the final outcome. “Chin augmentation using implants will restore harmony and definition to the lower face to bring it into harmony with the rest of the facial features…” says Dr. Dominic. That is one reason why he places so much emphasis on creating a natural, not plastic, appearance.
