Jaw Augmentation Effects on Facial Appearance

Jaw augmentation enhances the jawline with emphasis on the chin and the jaw angle area. It will not adversely affect your smile and will not create a chin dimple unless you specifically want one created. Whether you would benefit by a rhinoplasty afterwards could await the outcome of the jaw augmentation procedure or should be looked at initially with computer imaging along with jaw augmentation to see if its effects are facially beneficial.

Jawline augmentation

Using your images, note that the look from the front shows a somewhat narrow tapered lower jaw, and you can visualize the angle of the jaw in profile begins just below the earlobes. Generally the jaw could be lengthened slightly so the jaw looks more 'square' which reduces the look of a longer face height. It also widens slightly the Hawkins and defines it.

Chin implant can improve front view and profile.


You look like a good candidate for a chin implant.  It is very useful, particularly in men.  It gives you much stronger profile and also some subtle strengthening of the jawline in front view. Should not need anything else.
