I’ve always had something of a receding chin but I also think I’ve gotten a bit jowly as I’ve gotten older. Can a chin implant help both of these problems?
A chin implant can certainly help with a small or recessed chin. Jowling can also be slightly improved with chin implants if the implant is the proper size and shape. I prefer an extended chin/prejowl chin implant because this implant not only augments the chin, but also provides a very natural appearance to the jawline. Improvement in the jawline will help to correct the jowling that you are seeing although a facelift is really the ideal procedure for excessive jowling.
