THE CHIN IS IN…Why Chin Augmentation…How It’s Done by Dr. Steven Davison

LONG LASTING FACIAL MAKEOVERS

Hollywood has taught us much about keeping our youthful appearance until we die.  Long lasting facial makeovers create or restore facial symmetry, which is crucial to looking young.  Symmetry involves achieving balance between the facial thirds…upper face (eye/brow/forehead), middle third of the face…nose and cheeks and the lower third includes the lips, chin and neck.

THE CHIN & FACIAL BALANCE…CRUCIAL TO YOUTHFUL APPEARANCE

Today, let’s get back to the chin. A sharper chin restore balance, proportion and definition with the middle face,particularly the nose.  Chin implants are often used in a more aged chin to restore lost volume and shape. A sharper, well defined chin is in direct contrast to a chin that has “receded into the neck.”

CHIN AUGMENTATION USING IMPLANTS

Chin Augmentation is a minimally invasive, quick, little or no downtime procedure done in my office.  I make a small incision either in the mouth or right under the chin and work through it to create a pocket for an implant.  Once in place, the implant makes you look years younger forever.

BENEFITS OF CHIN AUGMENTATION:

  • Chin Augmentation with implants is safe & effective
  • Implants add definition to the jawline…
  • Overall facial balance is improved…
  • A more youthful appearance is created (for some) or restored
  • Liposuction may be part of the process to sculpt the chin & neck
  • Neck proportions are readjusted by manipulating/tightening muscles
  • I customize implants to meet your specific needs/ & goals
  • Patients often decide to combine Chin Augmentation with other facial procedures to optimize their results
  • The procedure takes about 30 minutes or a little longer
  • There is often no downtime
  • I use state of the art instruments & the most advanced but safest techniques
WHY HAVE CHIN AUGMENTATION?
That’s always the key question.  I’ve given good reason already; but if that’s not enough here are a few more:  First, it restores what has been lost over time or creates what was never there to begin with and what you always wanted.  Second, If a chin is too small, the nose usually appear to be too large, augmentation corrects this. Third, If the nose is too large, the chin often looks to small…again augmentation with implant corrects this.  Fourth, many patients have nose reshaping done at the same time for optimal results and balance. Fifth, the liposuction I do removes excess fat, allowing me to sculpt the neck as well as lift and tighten muscles when a Necklift is included in your procedure. Rhinoplasty is the other most common addition patients choose…for achieving real facial balance and youthfulness.

The Chin is in…Chin Augmentations by Dr. Steven Davison

AGE DEFYING AUGMENTATIONS: the Chin is in

Chin augmentation is currently the most “in demand” anti aging cosmetic procedure being done today.  Among all demographics, it is the fastest growing trend according to recent survey results from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Here are the numbers:

– Chin augmentations increased overall by 71% in 2011

– Chin augmentation outranked breast procedures in 2011

– Men of all ages – 76% increase

– Ages (both genders) 40 to 54 – 77% increase

– Ages 55 & over – 70% increase in Chin augmentations

– These numbers were in comparison to lip augmentation, breast augmentation and cheek implants, clearly showing that people saw the need to correct aging in the lower 1/3 of the face.  Chin Augmentation restores the neck and chin to a more youthful appearance by reducing the sagging jawline, often with a chin implant and correcting the neck issues.

So what’s the reason for this dramatic change?  Surveys also revealed that as more and more people are chatting online with camera’s rolling…they see the receding chin and sagging jawline since it shows facial aging very early.

Baby Boomers especially, are showing up in aesthetic surgeons offices seeking ways to turn back the clock with Chin augmentation or a combination of age defying options.

Concerns over their careers prompt many to have combination treatments such as Botox and liposuction, while others choose chin implants and neck lifts…or all of it.

Cameras don’t lie! The more time people spend in front of cameras on their PC’s…the more we see them asking me to take years off their face,  to explain chin augmentations, facelifts, injectable facelifts, Botox, liposuction & sculpting of the chin/neck to restore its youthfulness…and much more.  Read more about these: www.davinciplastic.com.

Chin Augmentation is in…but I also have many other tools in my tool chest.

Got concerns about facial aging?  Let’s talk.  There are many non surgical options we can explore so that you can be happy with your camera look.

Next blog will overview facial aging and the chin and neck…and how chin augmentation takes years off the face.
