Genetic Predisposition or the Effects of Aging
Some men are simply born with a weak or receding chin and have always felt self-conscious of it. Others start to lose chin definition with age, as fat displacement leads to the appearance of a “double chin.” Whatever the case may be, there is a suitable solution.
Chin surgery with an implant will build up a weak or receding chin. Liposuction techniques can remove surplus fat and refine the contours around the jawline. Laser skin tightening treatment can also improve the look of saggy, loose skin.
If you watch a lot of movies, you’ve probably seen a rise in the number of superhero-themed flicks. Have you also noticed the actors that play these superhero characters all have extremely strong, masculine jawlines? Think of Chris Pine, Robert Downey, Jr. or Chris Pratt.
A chiseled chin is one of the defining characteristics of strong, fearless characters. It’s not surprising that more men seek to emulate their favorite superhero characters.
Men are working longer than ever, and some companies are cutthroat when it comes to layoffs and promotions. For some men, plastic surgery helps them maintain confidence in the workforce and avoid being edged out of a job by younger competitors. Studies show that many of this country’s most successful CEOs have strong, prominent chins — so it makes sense that men pay extra attention to this feature!
