The Face: Jaw

Many men and women have the problem of a weak or receding chin which in turn creates a significantly negative impact on the facial shape and jaw profile.

A weak chin can make a normal nose appear large and an already prominent nose even larger. It may also give the appearance of a 'fleshy' neck. On the other hand, a prominent chin may give the appearance of a disproportionately small nose.

Therefore, to achieve a balanced relationship between these structures of the face, shaped implants may be considered. Shaped implants are simple and permanent solutions that modify and accentuate the line of the jaw and chin to make the face better proportioned. The advantage of using such implants is that they are reversible in the future.
