Facial Contouring for Men

Men need to choose a facial contouring procedure that serves to highlight their masculinity, instead of simply creating a small and slim face with a V line that is more suitable for women. Men tend to prefer a more natural-looking jawline that is not as slender as that of a woman. So in order to meet their needs, we perform an accurate analysis of the facial contours of our male patients, based on a 3D-CT scan, and design a new face shape that suits their overall facial characteristics in order to accentuate their masculinity with a softer and sharper look.

Need for Plastic Surgery Procedure

Specifically Designed for Men

The golden ratio for the face is 1:1:0.8 (upper area, mid area, and lower area).

The most common types of plastic surgery for men would be eye-plasty and nose-plasty, but these days, a growing number of men are opting for facial contouring surgery as well. Men tend to seek plastic surgery to leave a great first impression in the professional or business world and gain a chance to prove their competency and gain success. In the case of men, their bones are thicker compared to their female counterparts, and there are also differences in terms of the skin, blood vessels and other soft tissue. So it is important for the plastic surgeon to create a surgical plan that is tailored to the male patient and create sharp, natural-looking facial contours that highlight his masculinity.

Facial Contouring Surgery Procedure

Even when you have nice, prominent facial features, if your face shape appears unrefined or too angular,
it may prevent you from leaving a good first impression. Unlike for women, however, facial contouring for men is designed
to accentuate their masculine appeal through their facial contours by creating a sharp,
chiseled look instead of simply slimming down the face.

The zygoma or cheekbone is an important factor that determines the facial contours along with the jawbone. If the cheekbones are too prominent, it can make one appear somewhat unrefined. The surgical method is varied based on the facial bone structure and the degree of protrusion of the cheekbones to reduce the size of the cheekbones and create a more three-dimensional and sophisticated-looking face.

This is a surgical procedure recommended to men who have prominent square jaws that make them appear unfriendly and unapproachable. Square jaw reduction surgery involves refining the jawbone to make the face appear smaller and the jawline smoother. iWELL’s square jaw reduction surgery serves to remove a part of the facial bone, cortical bone, jaw muscles and facial fat. In the case of men, they tend to have well-developed muscles compared to women, so removing a moderate amount of muscle can lead to more satisfying results.

Even if you don’t have a square jaw or protruding cheekbones, your face can still look flat and large if you have a stubby chin. Men tend to have thicker bones than women, so having a wide and stubby chin can make them appear even more unrefined. If you have concerns about the shape of your chin (short chin, long chin, receding chin, jutting chin, etc.), visit iWELL for a chin revision procedure to gain a sharper look.

Characteristics of iWELL’s Facial Contouring Surgery

Facial contouring for men is a surgical procedure that requires a high degree of accuracy and meticulousness as a small difference can lead to major changes. The cheekbones should be slimmed down, while the jawline should appear straight without looking too pointy for a more natural appearance. To prevent overly feminine or unrefined appearance, the characteristics between those of a U line and V line are accentuated to create the most ideal face shape with masculine appeal.
