Facial Balancing to Enhance Natural Beauty

Have you ever admired someone’s face and been unable to pinpoint exactly what makes them so attractive? It might be facial harmony. Many studies suggest that strong levels of facial symmetry are found attractive by the opposite sex. (1) This concept goes beyond individual features – it’s about the overall balance and proportion of all facial elements working together to create a pleasing and aesthetically balanced appearance. 

Dr. Anna Wooten is a board-certified plastic surgeon who understands the importance of facial harmony and how achieving it can boost your confidence and natural beauty. At her practice, Beleza Plastic Surgery, her team works to achieve natural-looking facial harmony via both minimally invasive and surgical options.

About Facial Balancing

To illustrate the impact of facial balancing, look at this Beleza patient’s “Before & After” images which show her in profile.

These pictures illustrate the impact of a multi-pronged approach to improving facial harmony. Dr. Wooten performed surgical chin augmentation with a permanent chin implant, liposuction of the chin, and then the patient received lip filler in the Beleza medi-spa. Her results look refined and elegant. To view a full gallery of Dr. Wooten’s chin augmentation results, click here.
Let’s explore some ways the Beleza team can help achieve facial balance:

Facial Balancing with Non-Surgical Options

  • Dermal Fillers: These injectable solutions can be used to add volume to specific areas, bringing balance and definition to your face. Plumping up thin lips, adding fullness to sunken cheeks, or subtly softening deep lines around the mouth can significantly improve facial harmony. For many men and women, dermal filler applied to a weak chin or softer jawline can improve facial balance and create definition.

This image shows one woman’s results from a syringe of filler injected to enhance her chin. The balancing effect of this strategically placed filler makes her appear slimmer and in better proportions with her lips.

  • Morpheus8: This innovative treatment combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy to tighten and lift the skin without surgery. By addressing sagging jowls and treating the degrading collagen along the jawline, Morpheus8 can restore a more youthful and balanced profile.
  • Kybella: This injectable treatment permanently dissolves stubborn fat deposits under the chin, often referred to as a “double chin.” By eliminating this unwanted fullness, Kybella creates a sharper jawline and improves the overall balance of your face.
  • CoolSculpting: Cryolipolysis triggered by CoolSculpting treatments are another option for permanently dissolving fat cells for a more sculpted neckline. The ‘double chin’ area is a popular, FDA-approved treatment site for CoolSculpting.

Surgical Options for Enhanced Facial Harmony

  • Chin Augmentation with Implant: A strategically placed chin implant can project the chin forward, creating a more defined jawline and better balance with the nose and forehead. This can be particularly beneficial for those with a naturally weak chin or those seeking a stronger lower face profile.
  • Chin Reduction Surgery: During a chin reduction surgery, Dr. Wooten shaves the jaw and chin bone to reduce the appearance of an over prominent chin.
  • Fat Transfer to the Face: To volumize a sunken area of the face, Dr. Wooten can take fat from a deposit elsewhere on the body, purify the fat, and re-inject it in the cheeks, temples, lips, cheeks, or chin to improve a patient’s facial harmony. Fat transfer is a long-lasting surgical rejuvenation that can be done at Beleza under local anesthetic or in an Accredited Surgery Center.
