A strong jawline conveys confidence, power, strength and fertility. This is a feature that is deeply sought after by both men and women in Tampa, but unless you are born with the right genetics and bone structure it is difficult to create a great chin without some outside help. Recent advancements in plastic surgery make easier than ever to craft a strong jawline and help balance out your facial features.
What is a Strong Jawline?
A strong jawline does not necessarily require a large jaw bone, although that certainly helps. What really comprises the optimal look is the prominence of the chin and the angle between the chin and the neck. A wide jawbone and a well-defined chin help to create balance and to give your face stability. A sharp line makes you look sexier and your face brighter. If you carry extra weight, your jaw line can be obscured by fat along your chin, in your jowls and along your neck. Losing the fat in your lower face can help to improve your appearance but it is not an easy solution for many people.
How to Create a Strong Jawline
If you have the right bone structure but have developed jowls or sagging tissue from too much fat gathered in your lower face, then facial liposuction and/or a neck lift can help to improve the angle of the neck. This will help make your jawline stand out and help restore the proper lines in your face. If you have a weak chin to start, then a chin implant may be a better way to go to strengthen the jawline. A weak chin is more visible from the profile view. It seems to recede backward and is farther back from the point where the nose stops. This may make your nose look bigger and make your jaw look smaller. A weak chin may make your face look pudgy or make it appear that your lower face blends in with your neck. In this case, a chin implant can create the chiseled jaw that denotes leadership and power.
A Chin Implant for a Strong Jawline
Chin implants can offer you better definition along your jawline and are used to correct a recessed chin. Chin augmentation surgery can help change the projection of the chin by adding biocompatible material to make a wider or stronger looking chin. It can even lengthen the face and help make the rest of your features appear to be more properly spaced or balanced. An experienced plastic surgeon can help make the determination on whether a chin implant is right for you or whether a neck lift or dermal fillers can you craft the look you desire.
Dr. Dominic Castellano, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon in Tampa, believes that a chin implant can be beneficial for the right patients. If the patient has a recessed chin and wants to improve the look of the jaw, then a chin implant may be the best solution. A chin augmentation can be done through a relatively simple procedure where the surgeon places a silicone implant either though a small incision under the chin or inside the mouth. In most cases, the procedure is done in less than an hour under local anesthesia and the recovery takes a week or so for the minimal pressure to subside. There is generally little discomfort outside some minor swelling and tightness while the skin stretches to accommodate the implant.
Dr. Dominic stresses that this procedure be done by a well-qualified plastic surgeon that is experienced with facial surgery. Also that the surgery be performed in an accredited medical facility to ensure optimal results and safety.
