A very small percentage—about 5 percent—of American women have a naturally prominent, chiseled jaw. You may see this trait in some of the top most beautiful women in Hollywood, like Jennifer Aniston, Sandra Bullock, and Keira Knightley. While attractiveness is subjective, a strong jawline in women is definitely a coveted feature in our present culture. It evokes a look of power, strength, and confidence in women, which is what many of the best supermodels express. This feature may be so desired because it is such a rarity, but it also has to do with the golden ratio of facial proportions and what many consider to be the basic standard of beauty for centuries.
What Is The Golden Ratio?
No matter what type of beauty you are personally attracted to, there are certain symmetrical “lines” in the face that always capture attention and please the eye. The golden ratio is a standard mathematical way to measure the proportions of the face, where the distance between certain features of the face compared to other distances of the face equals the ratio of approximately 1.618. The closer the measurements come to the golden ratio, the more balanced the facial features are and the more attractive the person seems to be. When a strong jawline is complemented by strong cheekbones, it forms facial symmetry that falls in line with the golden ratio and defines the main areas of the face and neck.
How Can I Get Strong Jawline Definition?
Dr. Agullo can create stunning facial definition in one procedure with a simple chin implant. Although it is a small implant and a less invasive cosmetic surgery, a chin implant makes a major difference in the appearance of the face and jawline. It creates a sleek, chiseled profile and a stronger appearance to the front of the face. To further define the face, some patients require removal of the buccal fat pad, which creates a hollowness below the cheekbone and above the jawline. BOTOX® Cosmetic injections to the masseters can also help to create a more feminine figure in patients with squared faces. Finally, fat injections to the face can help reinforce the cheekbones.
A similar result can be accomplished when sagging jowls are removed with a facelift or when wrinkles, sagging skin, and a “double chin” are improved with a neck lift. Both procedures create more definition between the face and neck, which is essential to a youthful and healthy appearance.
If you would like to achieve youthful jawline definition with chin implants or the removal of stubborn fat beneath the chin to create a stronger facial appearance, please schedule a consultation with Dr. Agullo. Call (915) 590-7900 or fill out our online contact form for additional information.
