Can a VIP Facelift Help Increase Chin Volume?
Lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin are among the most common signs of facial aging that lead millions of men and women to pursue facelift surgery each year, but many patients also struggle with a natural volume loss that affects various facial features — including the chin. As skin laxity progresses and fat supplies dwindle, patients often notice weakening of the chin, cheeks, and other features that can exacerbate their other signs of aging and make them look and feel even older than they actually are. At Sawan Surgical Aesthetics, board-certified Oklahoma City plastic surgeon Dr. Kamal Sawan utilizes the most advanced and modern techniques available today to help patients restore a more youthful and natural-looking facial appearance. Here, you’ll discover how volume loss can be addressed and corrected with one of our most popular and transformative anti-aging procedures: the VIP facelift.
Why does my chin look weaker as I get older?
As we age, it is normal to begin to notice certain facial features becoming weaker, softer, and less pronounced. This is due to a natural loss of collagen, elastin, and fat supplies, along with the progression of wrinkles, lines, and skin laxity. As a result, many men and women develop sunken cheeks, drooping jowls, thin lips, and a weak or sagging chin.
How can I restore a stronger jawline?
If a weak or saggy chin is compromising the facial contours you desire, a VIP facelift with Dr. Sawan may be the anti-aging facial surgery you’ve been searching for. During a VIP facelift, Dr. Sawan uses traditional facelift techniques — including skin excision and muscle tightening — to restore a more youthful appearance. Additionally, the VIP facelift involves harvesting fat from the abdomen and transferring it to certain facial features to build up more natural and younger-looking contours. For patients concerned with a weak chin specifically, fat grafting to the chin during a VIP facelift can help to strengthen the profile and take years off the face. Other areas that can be refreshed with a fat transfer during VIP facelift surgery include:
- Hollow cheeks
- Thin lips
- Sunken circles under the eyes
Should I get a fat transfer or chin augmentation?
Patients today have more options than ever before when it comes to enhancing an aged, recessed, or set-back chin. In addition to VIP facelift surgery that includes a chin fat transfer, Dr. Sawan also offers isolated fat transfer to the chin as well as a chin augmentation with chin implants and/or chin fillers to help meet the unique needs of patients. Generally speaking, a VIP facelift is considered suitable for patients with various signs of facial aging, including lines, wrinkles, sagging skin, and deflated features. Younger patients whose primary concern is a weak or recessed chin may be better suited to a fat transfer or chin augmentation with implants. To determine which type of chin augmentation is right for you, Dr. Sawan will conduct a thorough consultation and physical evaluation, and discuss your concerns and goals. Based on this information, Dr. Sawan and our knowledgeable team will recommend a customized chin augmentation treatment plan that can best help you achieve your ultimate aesthetic goals.
