As a man it is important to feel masculine and portray the strength of a man. Dominant and defined facial features on a man portray them as “strong” while less defined smaller features on a male give them a “weaker” appearance. No man wants to feel or appear weak. It’s all about looking masculine to feel masculine. Although appearances are not an exact science, there is a certain balance and proportion the features on your face could have to make it look harmonious. In a man the “ideal” facial structure consists of a chiseled and well defined jaw. A strong jaw line can provide definition to your facial contour, balancing other features such as cheek bones, chin and nose.
Jawline and chin augmentations are on the rise to provide men with a balanced masculine look on the most noticeable part on their body, their face. Both are done through an incision in the mouth and can be done together to achieve optimal results. These procedures provide a new found confidence to men’s self esteem in their professional lives as well as their love lives.
A chin augmentation is done by making an incision either inside the mouth or outside under the chin and is attached to the bone with sutures or screws. Real bone, fat tissue, or an implant made out of silicone is typically used as an implant.
For jawline augmentation an incision is made inside the mouth near the area of the third molars and an implant is inserted.
Both a jawline and chin augmentation can be performed within the same surgery for male patients in Los Angeles. These procedures are also commonly done at the same time as rhinoplasty to provide facial harmony.
Since a strong jawline and chin is a defining masculine feature and can have a profound effect on facial appearance and your confidence, .
