Weak Chin Anatomy
The chin is one of the main focal points of your face. The mandible (lower jaw bone) aligns the upper and lower teeth and forms the foundation for your face and neck. As such, this area has a bigger impact on your overall appearance than most people realize.
When the chin is shaped and positioned correctly, it can contribute to a harmonious and universally attractive look, with a defined jawline and balanced profile. However, if the chin is too short, long, full, weak or slanted, it can have an undesirable effect, creating the appearance of an overly rounded face, unbalanced features and/or a large nose. In performing chin augmentation procedures, Dr. Rahban knows precisely which surgical and artistic steps to take to sculpt a chin and jaw area that is ideally defined and positioned for his patients.
What aesthetic issues commonly affect the chin?
Chins come in a variety of shapes, sizes and positions. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of yours, it is likely because you’re suffering from one or more of the following common aesthetic issues:
A double chin is also known as “submental fullness.” It develops when a layer of fat develops just below your chin, due to weight gain, loose skin, genetics and the natural aging process. It’s one of the most common aesthetic problems relating to the chin for both men and women.Learn More >>
Weak Chin & Jaw
A weak jaw is caused by a small, short chin that slopes towards the neck. Although the condition can affect both men and women, it has different effects for each gender. For men, a strong and defined jaw is a universal feature of masculinity, so weakness in this area can feminize the face. For women, a weak jaw can create a sloping profile and the appearance of an overly prominent nose.Learn More >>
Long and slanted chin
A long chin that slants inward elongates the face and appears too large in comparison to the rest of your features. In some cases, the chin may be slightly longer than or as long as the nose, which disrupts the proportions. To address this issue, the bone and structural tissues must be reshaped so the chin fits in with the rest of your facial features.
A symmetrical face is an attractive face. Although all faces have some degree of asymmetry, glaring imbalances affecting your chin pad can be a substantial source of low self-esteem. Fortunately, asymmetry in this area can be corrected fairly easily by reshaping the bone or inserting a symmetrical implant.
