Having a well-defined jawline and chin is often associated with attractiveness, masculinity, and confidence in men. Plastic surgery offers various procedures, both surgical and nonsurgical, that can transform the appearance of the chin and neck for men.
Dr. Lara Devgan emphasizes that plastic surgery is not exclusive to women, and more men are seeking procedures to enhance their overall health and well-being. Achieving a well-sculpted chin and neck involves creating a clear distinction between the jaw and neck, ensuring proportionality and harmony with other facial features.
During consultations with men, Dr. Devgan often finds that they identify their concerns as fullness under the chin, but this is only part of the issue. Many men also have weak bone structure in the jawline and chin projection. Therefore, a holistic approach is necessary to address both excess tissue and structural weakness.
There are several options available for jawline and chin contouring. Surgical chin augmentation, also known as genioplasty or chin implants, involves inserting an implant made of biocompatible material over the chin bone or repositioning a section of the chin bone to achieve the desired look.
Neck liposuction is another procedure that removes excess fat from beneath the chin and around the neck, enhancing the angle between the neck and jaw. Small incisions are made, and a cannula is used to suction out the fat.
For sagging skin, muscle banding, and excess fat, a neck lift, or lower rhytidectomy, is an effective option. The surgeon makes small incisions behind the ears, under the chin, or both, removes the extra skin, and tightens underlying muscles.
Injections of dermal fillers offer a minimally invasive option to add volume and definition to the jawline and chin projection. This procedure usually takes a few minutes, and recovery involves minor swelling or bruising at the injection sites.
To determine the most suitable procedure, it is essential to consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate your unique anatomy and needs. Rather than requesting a specific procedure, it is important to communicate your goals. The surgeon will develop an individualized plan that addresses your concerns effectively.
In conclusion, achieving an ideal jawline involves considering various surgical and nonsurgical options available for chin and neck contouring. Consulting with a qualified plastic surgeon is the first step towards achieving the desired results.
