It is very common to hear people describe others as either having a strong chin or a weak chin. If you have a strong chin, this means that your chin is defined and is prominent. Individuals who have a weak chin almost look as if they have no chin at all. This can be problematic because when a person does not have a well-defined chin, the rest of their face looks unbalanced. Chin augmentation via chin implants is a popular solution to address this issue. Both men and women have chin augmentation procedures performed.
Understanding the Benefits of Chin Implants
When a person has a chin augmentation procedure performed, their chin will be in proportion to the rest of their facial features. If you look at a person who has a weak chin, their neck looks full or fleshy.
Since your chin is designed to offset the appearance of your nose, if a person has a weak chin, then their nose might seem like it is unusually large. Chin implants can bring the nose back into balance with the rest of the facial structure.
Are You a Good Candidate for a Chin Implant?
You may be a good candidate for chin augmentation if you have an aesthetic defect that would benefit from you having a more prominent chin. Some of these defects would include a pointed chin, a square chin, a fleshy neck, a recessed chin or a prominent nose.
You should also have a realistic expectation about what the procedure can do for you. A chin implant will improve the appearance of your profile, but it will not change who you are. Nor should you expect a chin implant to change the way that other people treat you. If you walk into the procedure with unrealistic expectations, you will likely walk out feeling upset.
Chin implants serve a valuable purpose in that they restore balance to your face, they make your neck visible and they can improve your appearance, thereby improving your self-confidence.
