A Plastic Surgeon in Los Angeles Can Fix Your Weak Chin
As the bottom portion of your facial structure, a chin can change a lot about how you perceive yourself. Chins can be round, pointed, rectangular, and very subtle. Those with a subtle chin can feel as if they have no chin at all and that their face just blends into their neck.
If your chin curves downward towards your jaw, this is likely only a cosmetic issue, and simply contouring your face with bronzer may not be providing long-term results. This can all be permanently fixed with a Los Angeles chin augmentation, also known as genioplasty.
You can visit a plastic surgeons office in Los Angeles to have an aesthetic professional examine your jawline to see what options are best for your face shape. The great thing about a chin augmentation is that you have the option to reshape your jawline, which can have a huge impact on your appearance.
The longest-lasting option to have a stronger jawline is getting an implant.
Whether you want a pointed chin like Reese Witherspoon or a strong, masculine jawline like Olivia Wilde, your surgeon will be able to construct a silicone implant that fits your aesthetic needs.
You will then undergo surgery for this implant, and this consists of either general or local anesthetic. The surgery shouldn’t last long if you are at a qualified and experienced practice for facial reconstruction surgery in Los Angeles. They will make an incision behind your ears or under your chin so that they have access to your jawbone. Then, the surgeon will insert your implant so that it adheres to the natural structure of your jaw. After sealing the incision site with sutures, you will be sent home with a set of aftercare instructions.
Defining Your Jawline Beyond a Chin Implant
Chin augmentations in Los Angeles can also be done in tandem with other procedures if your doctor does not think that genioplasty alone will solve your problems.
In some cases, your weak chin can be due to the buildup of excess fluid or fat around the lower half of your face. This is very common, and you may hear people refer to this issue as “jowls.” Jowls can be treated through neck and chin liposuction, wherein a doctor will insert a tube into your neckline and suck out whatever natural substance is causing the lack of definition around your jawline.
If you’ve never had surgery done, it’s normal to feel nervous. If you’re unsure you want to undergo surgery and unsure if you want to make any permanent changes, our plastic surgeons also have an alternative option for you.
You can try out injectable fillers if you don’t want to undergo jaw surgery. Dermal fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm can be injected to fill out your jawline. While fillers are not permanent, they don’t require surgery and can be done in less than 15 minutes in many cases. Their non-permanence can be preferable if you don’t know if you’ll like the results.
Regardless of which jaw reshaping procedure you choose, the Los Angeles cosmetic surgeons of Westside Face have a long track record of client satisfaction. You’ll be overjoyed with your results and wonder why you didn’t do it sooner.
