Man Up: A Stronger Jawline


Men of power have strong jawlines. They exude confidence and success; they’re also the “chick magnet” every guy wants to become. But what do you do if weren’t born with the mandibular profile of David Beckham or Tom Brady? For any man who’s been called “pretty” instead of “handsome,” there are ways to create a chin that even Leonidas from 300 Spartans would be jealous of.

There are a couple of ways to create a more masculine jawline. Let’s say you’re a guy who knows what he wants—a straight shooter. In 30 minutes, you can go from “soft” to “rugged” with the help of a small, customized piece of silicone. I’m talking about a chin implant. Yes, it’s surgical, but there’s no downtime and no one’s going to wonder if you had a facelift. Trust me. The only thing you’re going to hear is, “Did you shave? You look good.” Even better, this is a permanent solution. One and done.

If you’re a guy who wants to test the waters before committing, there is a temporary, non-surgical way you can create a stronger jawline with injectable fillers. This option is often called the “gateway” to implants because, frankly, the costs add up really quickly. Let’s say you need 6 vials of hyaluronic acid filler at $1000/per vial. Fillers generally last from 6 to 9 months. You do the math.

Regardless of the costs, I can tell you this: Men who have experienced the subtle physical changes of a stronger jawline have also experienced the power behind the genetic cues it generates for “fitness.” Research tells us this is how dominance is signaled. It makes perfect sense. My advice? If you want a stronger jawline, go get it. There's no good reason not to.
