Striking facial features are the hallmarks of youth and beauty. Contrary to uneven areas of volume that develop with age, youthful features are smooth and seamlessly transition from one feature to the next. This is most readily apparent in the chin and jawline, where the crisp border associated with youth turns into an undulating pattern for several different reasons, one being genetic. If you have what you feel is a weak or less-prominent chin that affects the look of your facial proportions and profile, this can make your overall face seem older. Chin implants could be a great aesthetic treatment option to refine your features, restore vitality to the face, and boost your self-confidence.
Dr. Chelsea Troiano and the entire team at Troiano Facial Plastics are dedicated to premier patient care and unmatched aesthetic outcomes. Offering safe and innovative procedures and techniques for facial rejuvenation means helping patients enhance their natural beauty or refine their appearance in a variety of ways, including with chin implants in West Palm Beach.
Chin implants, also known as chin augmentation, are a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to enhance the structure and proportions of the chin area. This procedure involves placing a medical-grade silicone implant on top of the bony portion of the chin to permanently enhance the shape of the chin and jawline. Chin implants can transform a recessed or weak chin, creating better facial symmetry and a classic profile.
Both chin implants and dermal fillers used in the chin and jaw area can be used for chin enhancement and help to create a more proportionate or stronger-looking chin. There are several types of dermal fillers that might be used for this type of facial rejuvenation, however, fillers are short-term, and maintenance is typically needed within a year or less. While chin implants do require surgery and thus some downtime, they are permanent, so there is no need for maintenance.
A weak chin influences the entire look of the face. Think of cartoon characters like witches: they have a narrow chin, which makes them look old. Often, less intellectually inclined cartoon characters will have a weak chin. It is a subconscious assumption that weak chins mean less intelligence, even though this is entirely untrue. In addition to these subconscious human biases we carry about chin size, a lower face that is out of proportion with the rest of the face will throw the balance of the face off. Bringing refined balance to facial features or masculine strength to the jawline with chin implants improves the overall graceful impression of the face and can improve confidence in both social and professional situations.
