The chin plays an important role in contributing to the overall symmetry of the face to determine how attractive someone is. However, there are subtle differences that make a chin ideal for men and women. Generally, a strong jaw and chin are considered masculine features. In recent times, the perception of an ‘ideal’ chin for men and women are converging. We see good-looking female celebrities who possess square jawlines. These include Hollywood A-listers such as Angelina Jolie and Demi Moore. Tempted to undergo chin augmentation procedure to look like your favourite celebrity? Read on more to find out your options.
Based on social standards of beauty, men usually have longer and protruding chins than women. There is often a sharp angle between the jaw and chin, giving the chin a more obvious, angular appearance. Men’s chins usually have a flat base, whereas women’s chins are rounded and pointed.
Although there is no hard and fast rule about what chin is the nicest, what matters most is that the chin you want must be able to fit your overall facial appearance.
Surgical option for chin augmentation
In the past, undergoing a chin augmentation procedure meant that you have to go undertake knife to place a silicon to enhance the shape of your chin. The risk from chin implants remains high wherein the implant may shift out of position or infection due to a foreign object in your body. Besides implants, there is another surgical option of using your own chin bone to bring it forward using a sliding genioplasty technique.
As with all surgeries, there are potential complications with anaesthesia and post-treatment infection. Furthermore, the downtime will be longer than the non-surgical option.
Non-surgical option for chin augmentation
For people who prefer a non-invasive approach to chin augmentation, look for a medical aesthetic doctor with extensive experience in injecting fillers. Using Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler injections, your doctor will administer the fillers on precise areas to construct the chin you want.
HA is a glycosaminoglycan and it is naturally found in the body. HA is widely distributed throughout our connective, neural, and epithelial tissue. It is also one of the main components that provides structural support to cells.
