What is a weak chin / jaw line and what can you do about it? 

Chin Augmentation Implant to Strengthen Your Jaw Line

What is a weak chin / jaw line and what can you do about it? Chin implant cosmetic surgery is a long-lasting solution for a receding or weak chin and jawline. This procedure involves strengthening the facial planes by inserting biocompatible implants made of silicone below the chin bone. The surgical technique is also called mentoplasty 

When combined with nose surgery, it can give you a facial appearance that is more attractive and harmonious. Khan Plastic Surgery, led by board certified female plastic surgeon Dr. Farah Naz Khan provides chin and jaw line contouring surgery to patients in Dallas, Texas, and surrounding locations. 

What are a Weak Chin and Jawline? 

A chin which appears small or slopes backwards is called a weak chin. Such a receding chin causes the jawline to look less defined. This may detract from the masculine appearance in men. In women, a receding chin gives the nose too much prominence, marring the appearance of an otherwise attractive face. 

Some people also have a “double” chin where there seems to be extra fat deposits below the chin. Even persons without the fat deposit may have this look if their jaw line is not well-defined, or if their chin is narrow, or if the chin and neck are not well separated from each other.  

Why Chin Implants? 

A chin implant cosmetic surgery can give you the following benefits: 

  • An elegant jawline because of better separation of the jaw from the neck. 
  • A slimmer face where the jawline is more slender than before. 
  • A better harmony between the facial features to make your face more attractive. 
  • A smaller appearing nose that blends in better with your face. 

What is Chin Implant Surgery? 

Chin implant surgery or chin augmentation surgery involves a procedure in which the contours of the chin and jawline are modified by using biocompatible implants. The surgeon will examine your chin and help you choose an implant to get the look you desire. The actual procedure involves making a tiny cut under the chin to fashion a space for the implant.  

The surgeon inserts the silicone implant into this pocket, positions it to achieve the desired angle, and closes the cut. After the area heals, you will find your chin and jawline to be more defined and looking stronger than before.  

Other Procedures for Weak Chin and Jawline 

If you have a double chin, the surgeon may recommend a procedure called neck liposuction to remove the extra fatty tissue below the chin. If necessary, this may be combined with chin implant surgery to give your jawline greater definition.  

Some persons have lax skin in the face and neck regions due to age or genetic causes. In such cases, the surgeon may suggest a combination of chin implant surgery with facelift or neck lift procedures for better results.  

Skilled cosmetic surgeons offer solutions that are tailored to meet your particular requirements from the chin implant and jawline augmentation surgery.
