Most people underestimate the chin’s effects on facial appearance and, consequently, how they feel about themselves. However, chin augmentation can have a significant impact on one’s looks.
According to news reports, 50 or more Fortune 500 CEOs have undergone this cosmetic procedure to improve how others see them. So many influential and successful people chose to do so because the perception is that a strong chin indicates a strong character.
Regardless of social standing, chin augmentations have been increasingly popular in recent years. There are several reasons for this, aside from how it can make your face look more balanced and refined and grant you a more youthful overall appearance. Here we list the most common ones to give you an understanding of the advantages of getting a chin implant.
What Can a Chin Implant Do for You?
Some of the most common considerations for chin implants include the following:
- Rectify the proportion between your chin and other facial characteristics
- Strengthen the chin
- Enhanced neck and jawline definition
- Help reduce the visibility of submental fat (a double chin) accentuated by a tiny chin bone
A Chin Implant Improves Your Profile and Creates Harmony Between Facial Features
Faces considered most beautiful have chin, lips and nose in balance. For example, the nose can look overly big in relation to the face if this proportion is off. Therefore, people with large noses can benefit from a stronger chin to achieve symmetry. That is why patients often include chin augmentation when getting rhinoplasty or a facelift. Likewise, one of the most common reasons people undergo genioplasty is because their nose is too large.
On the other hand, a prominent chin can make a tiny nose look even smaller. This is why people often get a chin implant and a nose job simultaneously. In addition, chin augmentation is frequently performed with other cosmetic procedures, particularly a facelift, neck lift or rhinoplasty, for optimal facial harmony.
