Chin Up! Don't Forget This Key Feature
By Shellie Terry Benson |
The key to a beautiful face is balance, with none of the features dramatically taking away from the others, especially when it comes to areas like the nose and chin. A chin that is in balance with the rest of your face will be oval in shape and extend directly under where the lower lip projects out.
There are a number of problems that can cause the chin to look out of balance, but fortunately, just as many (if not more) solutions.
If you have a big chin, the rest of your face my seem too small. You plastic surgeon can set it back by making an incision inside the mouth or below the chin. Conversely, a chin that is set back too far can be slid forward.
If your chin is pointy, a filler can be injected to soften the contours and an injectable can also be used to relax the muscles of a chin that is too prominent. Your plastic surgeon may also suggest shaving it down to create a more rounded chin.
If you have a weak chin, an implant can help. It's surgically put in place with an incision inside the mouth or under the chin that will hardly be detectable once you've healed.
If you have an unwanted indentation in your chin, a filler such as Sculptra Aesthetic or hyaluronic acid can temporarily fill it in. These fillers can also help to smooth out chin wrinkles that develop with age.
Be sure to seek out a board-certified facial plastic surgeon who can help you achieve this ideal balance while maintaining a naturally beautiful look.
