What Would Make My Jawline More Attractive?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m unhappy with my face. I think the horizontal projection is very poor and the jawline is weak. Just starting to look into options and I would be happy to hear any ideas you have. My first thought was that chin implants might be helpful. I’m hoping to create a face that Asian and white women will find very attractive and projects warmth while also commanding respect in a business setting. I have attached a profile picture for your thoughts.

A: I am not sure what Asian or Caucasian women would necessarily find attractive or what facial appearance projects warmth while commanding respect in a business setting. But in looking at your side view pictures, I would agree that your chin is weak and out of proportion to the rest of your face. Having a more proportionate chin would give your face better balance and is what I think you would give you an improved facial appearance that may be considered more attractive as well as casting an image of greater masculinity. I have done some imaging on your side picture to see if you agree. The chin augmentation, which could be done by either implant or a sliding genioplasty, would benefit by concomitant neck liposuction as well.
