Cosmetic Treatments for the Chin
By Dr. Fredric Newman on June 06, 2018
When the facial features are well-proportioned and balanced, people don’t usually pay much attention to the chin. However, all it takes is a chin that is too prominent or one that lacks structure for someone to realize just how big a role the chin plays in creating ideal facial contours.
The chin balances out the nose, supports a strong jawline, and helps define a person’s profile. Dr. Fredric Newman offers a variety of cosmetic treatments for the chin to give our Darien, CT patients a more structured and defined chin and neckline. Chin liposuction can eliminate the appearance of a double chin, while placement of a chin implant can augment the chin.
Patients who are not satisfied with the appearance of the chin or the overall balance of the face can read on to learn more about the services that Dr. Newman offers.
One of the most common complaints regarding the appearance of the chin is excess fat beneath the chin, leading down to the neckline. When fat collects beneath the chin, it creates the appearance of a double chin.
A double chin gives the face a more rounded appearance, and prevents patients from enjoying a slender, well-defined neckline. If a patient is overweight, he or she may try to reduce the appearance of a double chin by shedding excess pounds. Unfortunately, many people find that, between genetics and stubborn fat deposits, it’s just not always possible to get rid of a double chin, even with proper diet and exercise.
Chin liposuction offers patients a safe and effective way to get rid of excess fat for good. Using a thin, hollow surgical tool called a cannula, Dr. Newman is able to precisely sculpt the chin and neckline by suctioning out unwanted fat.
Liposuction is performed under general anesthesia so the patient remains comfortable throughout treatment. The procedure only requires small surgical incisions (which are easily hidden behind the ears and beneath the chin) so surgical risks are minimal and recovery is fairly short. After they have healed, patients will enjoy a slimmer, more defined chin and neckline.
An underdeveloped chin can throw off the entire balance of the face. If the chin is flat or recessed, the nose will look larger and the jawline will look weaker. Since there is no natural way to build up the chin, many patients opt for a chin implant.
A chin implant is placed beneath the skin of the chin to add volume and definition to the chin and jawline. Chin implants are available in both solid and semisolid materials, and they come in a variety of sizes. With all of the implant options available, Dr. Newman can enhance a patient’s chin while maintaining a natural appearance.
Although chin implant surgery has been proven to be safe and effective, there are those who prefer a less invasive treatment option. Dermal fillers give patients another way to enhance the volume of the chin and create a stronger jawline and facial profile.
Dr. Newman offers several dermal filler options. He will discuss the specifics of each dermal filler with patients and recommend a treatment method that best meets their unique needs and desires.
While dermal fillers are effective solutions that can provide naturally attractive results, patients should understand that the results of dermal fillers are not permanent. To maintain the results that dermal fillers provide, patients will need to undergo routine treatments.
Whether you are looking to improve facial proportions, smooth facial skin, or treat other signs of aging, Dr. Fredric Newman offers the cosmetic treatments that will help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
