The shape of your face says a lot about you. It tells others whether you’re trustworthy or not, healthy or not, and sexually attractive or not. Studies show that facial symmetry and individual features impact how people perceive you and influence your personal and professional relationships. So, if your chin is weak or recessed, you may be sending out a message that you’re fragile, timid, or sick.
Dr. Kiran Polavarapu at Polavarapu Plastic Surgery in Fort Worth, Texas can restructure your chin and change the message it’s communicating to the world. She’s not only certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, she’s also an artist, so you can trust her to perform your chin augmentation (genioplasty) with expert skill and an eye for aesthetic beauty and balance. Here’s what a new jawline can do for you.
We all make instant subconscious judgments about the people we meet based on their facial features, and whether we know it or not, our eye is looking for an ideal proportion. A sloping, recessed chin makes your face look disproportionate and conveys weakness and meekness, while a jutting chin looks arrogant and haughty.
Dr. Polavarapu can either add an implant or reshape your chin to give you the facial balance and proportion you wish you’d been born with.
When you choose to undergo chin surgery, Dr. Polavarapu takes into account your overall facial shape and your aesthetic goals. Together, you may decide that an implant that makes your chin more prominent is just what you need. But if your chin is throwing your features off balance because it’s too prominent, then you may opt for mentoplasty, or chin reduction surgery.
In both cases, the result is a significant change to your jawline and neck as well as your chin. When performed by an experienced professional like Dr. Polavarapu, your chin surgery can give you a more defined, stronger jawline.
Some people are born with extra submental fat that rests below the chin and jaw, commonly called a double chin. But sometimes this facial feature is caused, or at least exacerbated by, a recessed chin.
A small chin bone or jawbone can give the appearance of a double chin. Once corrected, you may discover that you don’t have excess submental fat after all, you just needed to fill the space with an implant.
Chin surgery can dramatically alter your profile and the look of your lower face, but the results go far beyond the physical changes. Our chin surgery patients tell us that they love their new look, and so do others. They notice a big difference in how others interact with them, which in turn, gives our patients a boost of confidence when they meet new people. The ripple effect in your life can extend to your relationships, your outlook on life, and even your productivity.
It’s important to choose your surgeon carefully. Look for certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS), not cosmetic surgery, to guarantee the rigorous standards necessary for a successful procedure. And make sure your provider attended an accredited medical school and has at least six years of clinical training experience and three years in plastic surgery residency.
If you live in the Fort Worth area of Texas, you can rest assured that Dr. Polavarapu is one of the most qualified and experienced plastic surgeons in the region and can be trusted to help you achieve your aesthetic goals safely and beautifully.
