Will Chin and Jaw Angle Implants Make Me More Attractive?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in getting chin and jaw angle implants.I want to be an actor, and I have always been considered attractive however I feel that I need to have a wider jawline like Brad Pitt or Stephen Amell as well as a chin implant in order to balance out a bit of a weak chin and achieve the male model look. I was wondering, is this something that can be achieved for me and be considered extremely physically attractive? Also, when it comes to recovery, what can I expect? Will I be able to have the same smile and live my life the same way after everything is healed? Is it possible to participate in sports or boxing after a procedure such as this? Have many actors and male models had procedures such as these done to help them get to where they are today?

A: First and foremost, the most important thing to realize is what jawline augmentation (chin implant and jaw angle implants) can physically do for you. You can never look like someone else and you can never have their jawline or other facial features. All you can do is make the most of what you have. I have done some imaging of chin and jaw angle implant augmentation to help you see what that potential change would be on you. Expect three weeks of complete physical recovery and three months to finally see the healed and settled look as well as enough time to psychologically adapt to the facial changes. Chin and jaw angle implants will not affect your smile, facial movement or any other physical activity once fully healed. There is no problem participating in sports afterwards. Whether this type of surgery will make you more attractive or successful in whatever endeavors you do in life is more of an internal issue rather than what is seen exclusively on the outside.
