What is a weak chin / jaw line and what can you do about it? 

Surgical and Non-surgical Options for a Strong Jaw Line

What is a weak chin / jaw line and what can you do about it? Your chin and jawline contours are vital features that contribute to your naturally attractive and balanced face. If the chin or jawline is weak, poorly defined or under projected, it can adversely impact your facial appearance. If you are a man, it will make your face look less masculine, and if you are a woman, it may cause your neck and lower face to look older or less appealing.  

If you look at the face from the side, a weak or receding chin and jaw line can create the illusion of a more dominant nose. Chin implant cosmetic surgery will add substance to a weak chin and make the jaw line more prominent and well-defined. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Motykie provides chin augmentation surgery to patients in Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and surrounding locations. 

Chin Augmentation Surgery  

Chin augmentation cosmetic surgery involves the use of implants to enhance the chin and jawline appearance. These implants are made from a biocompatible synthetic material (usually silicone). Your surgeon will customize their size and shape to match with your specific cosmetic needs and facial anatomy.  

Following anesthesia, your surgeon will create a small incision below the chin to carve an implant pocket in front of the chin bone. They will insert the implant carefully into the pocket and adjust it into the appropriate position. The implant will build up your chin, add definition to your jaw line, and create a more aesthetically appealing facial profile and shape.  

Neck Liposuction 

Sometimes, the excess fat tissue may be present just below your skin in the submental area (under the chin), and not below your neck muscles. In this case, your surgeon may recommend liposuction surgery in the jawline and neck area to eliminate stubborn fat deposits and sculpt a more defined neck and jawline. This procedure may be performed independently or combined with chin implants in some cases. 

Neck Lift  

If the neck skin is loose or sagging, your surgeon may perform a neck lift surgery. The advantage with neck lift is that it can address all the structures that contributed to a well-defined jawline. These structures include fatty tissue, SMAS, skin, muscle, and salivary glands. Neck lift surgery can address them in a single procedure to create long-term results for a strong looking jawline and a youthful neck.  

Injectable Treatments  

Non-surgical injectable treatments such as dermal fillers and Botox can also help augment a weak chin and improve the jawline definition. When dermal filler gel is injected directly into the targeted areas of your jawline, it will enhance the bony angle and mandible. If you have minor loss of definition in the jaw, and the hard bony edge is someone lacking, you can benefit from this filler treatment.  

Botox injections can be placed directly in the overactive masseter muscle in your face to relax it. This will create a slimmer overall facial appearance and provide a desirable “V” shape to your face.
