Summer may be ‘round the corner and once beach season truly hits, it’s all about one thing- JAWS. I don’t mean the voracious sea villain catapulted into fame by Steven Spielberg. I mean the cosmetic trend that is influencing male patients from all corners of the world.
And speaking of big blockbuster favorites, Hollywood has always played a huge role in uprising procedures especially the latest-Jaw Augmentation Surgery. Jaw augmentations are usually accompanied with the popularity of chin augmentation requests and consultations. This increase in awareness of this treatment/technique is being accredited to the superhuman appearance of the superheroes we love in large budget cinematic adventures. Enter Chris Hemsworth of The Avengers, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and Christopher Pratt of Guardians of The Galaxy as some of the A-List hunks raising the bar and ideals of masculine features in the movie business and in the cosmetic industry for males.
Jaw Augmentation Surgery
Beauty and rugged good looks is not down to an exact science or formula of perfection. However, some Facial Plastic Surgeons attribute a few specific balanced proportions that the “perfect” facial structure contains (i.e. height, width and symmetry). For example, many individuals tend to think of a large prominent jaw as being masculine and portrays strength on a man; conversely, a less defined jaw line appears feminine and seems “weak”. In addition, an individual’s jaw imbalance can make other facial features seem distorted, making a small nose seem even smaller.
Jaw Augmentation or Mandibular Augmentation is most commonly performed to correct an inferior jaw structure due to a congenital deficiency or facial trauma. Jaw Augmentation is the use of synthetics or biologicals to augment, or make the mandibular structure of the face more prominent or defined. It can give balance to an otherwise less defined face or further augment an already existent jaw structure. For jawline augmentation, an incision is made inside the mouth near the area of the third molars and an implant is inserted. Both a jawline and chin augmentation can be performed within the same surgery for male patients in NYC. Hence, this is why the combination is very popular as they go hand in hand for optimal results.
Jaw augmentations produce extremely successful, desired results for those males who are looking to enhance a new level of confidence and get an edge on the competition. More often than not, males bring along a photo of the top granite actors they are trying to emulate. It is important to have open communication and understanding with your board-certified surgeon to achieve the right aesthetic look that meets the masculine standard.
A strong jaw line can provide definition to your facial contour and balance other features such as the cheek bones, chin, and nose. If you feel that a more prominent jaw line could help improve the overall appearance of your face, then jaw implants may be an excellent option to accomplish your aesthetic goals.
Considering Jaw Implants/Augmentation
Who is a good candidate for Jaw Augmentation?
It is important that your teeth and jaw function properly in order to ensure that your jaw implant procedure achieves your desired results. At your initial consultation, Dr. Douglas Steinbrech will evaluate your jaw function when deciding whether this is the right procedure for you.
Ideal jaw implant candidates should also be in good overall health and have reasonable expectations for the outcome of the procedure. Additional procedures may also be recommended in conjunction with your procedure to enhance the results.
Slight swelling post jawline/chin augmentation surgery is common; quickly reducing within 24-48 hours after surgery. Most male patients in NYC return to work within a few days after augmentation surgery, however strenuous exercise should be avoided for ten days. It is always the best idea to follow a surgeon’s direct recovery plan as of course, any surgical procedure that is performed is extremely personal and customized. Instructions in the areas of dental and oral hygiene post-surgery should also be provided.
