Will Chin and Jawline Implants Give A More Chiseled Looking Face?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Can Jaw and/or chin implants give me more of a chiseled/angular/square longer lower face? I don’t want to have the procedure if it can not create this kind of look.

A: In the right type of face, chin and jawline implants can indeed create a more angular or chiseled look. The right type of face is a thinner or lean one that can show skeletal highlights better. Fuller or ‘fatter’ face can not get a more chiseled look from facial implants as the soft tissue cover is too thick to show their outlines. This is particularly true of jaw angle and cheek implants which are facial locations that do not jut out like the chin can.
