Chin Implants for Men
Male chin implants are different from chin implants for women. The implant itself is square and angular, rather than rounded which, in women, preserves the oval shape of the lower face.
Where Did Your Chin and Neck Go?
A weak chin is often hereditary but may also be a sign of aging. Men with a retrusive chin frequently have an obtuse cervico-mental angle (CMA). The CMA is the angle between the chin and the neck. The ideal is between 90 and 105 degrees. There may be no CMA with one continuous line from the chin to the neck.
Timing of surgery depends on the cause. Men with developmentally weak chins may consider a chin implant as soon as skeletal growth is complete; in their late teens and early 20’s. The timing of surgery for loss of chin projection with aging or weight loss depends on personal choice. Typically, these men have a chin implant with a neck-lift.
