Many men consider a strong, chiseled jaw to be the “ideal” masculine feature. Attaining traditionally masculine features for the body, such as toned, defined muscles, is possible for many men through rigorous diet and exercise. But a strong jawline is a genetic feature — you either have it or you don’t.

Mandible (jaw) implants provide a natural yet dramatic change to the structure of the jaw and chin for a more chiseled, masculine appearance. 

Facial Implants Designed for Men

Dr. Renato Calabria is the preeminent male facial plastic surgeon serving Beverly Hills, Rancho Mirage, Rome, and Milan. While most plastic surgery is focused on female patients, Dr. Calabria understands the unique needs of his male patients. In addition to this, he has the specialized knowledge of the male facial skeleton needed to provide his patients with natural, masculine results. 

Many men worry that if they get plastic surgery, they will look feminine, unnatural, or obviously “worked on.” Dr. Calabria understands these anxieties, which is why he specializes in the unique structure of the male face and skin. 

What Are Mandible Implants?

Mandible implants are a subset of facial implants designed to augment and reshape the jaw. Dr. Calabria uses facial implants to modify the basic proportions of the male face for subtle yet noticeable changes. 

No one wants to look like they’ve had work done — this is perhaps even more important for men. Dr. Calabria uses solid silicone implants placed over the periosteum of the bone to closely mimic the look and feel of real bone. 

Mandible implants can be placed at an ideal angle to create a square, chiseled jawline. Since many men weren’t born with this revered bone structure, mandible implants from Dr. Calabria will help you look like you were born with a naturally strong, square jaw. 

Are There Other Facial Implant Options for Men?

Dr. Calabria can construct the ideal proportions for any area of the male face while keeping the overall results natural. 

Often, men with less prominent jawlines are also unhappy with the projection of their chin. When combined with mandible implants, a chin implant can support and strengthen the natural chin, creating a more cohesive look.  

What Is the Mandible Implant Procedure?

The first step in any plastic surgery procedure is the consultation. Dr. Calabria will discuss your goals and concerns before examining your facial structure, including any skin laxity. This will help him create a surgical plan. 

Your facial implant surgery will be performed under general anesthesia, so that you will feel no pain. Dr. Calabria will make small incisions, typically inside the mouth, to insert the silicone implant into the pocket. 

By creating incisions inside the mouth, there will be no visible scarring, adding to the natural-looking outcome. 

What Is Facial Implant Recovery Like?

You may experience minor bruising and swelling for about a week following the procedure. As your swelling goes down, the results of your strong, masculine jawline will slowly become more apparent. 

It is important to avoid strenuous physical activity for at least six weeks to avoid any injury or increase swelling. 

The Best Male Facial Plastic Surgeon

Dr. Calabria is highly skilled and experienced in the specific nuances of male plastic surgery. He is a leading expert in facial cosmetic procedures, taking a particular interest in creating ideal results for his male patients. 

In addition to his skill in facial implants for men, he pioneered the development and application of the vertical facelift, which improves upon traditional methods that can leave patients with a noticeable “windswept” look. 

The vertical facelift eliminates the pulled or overdone look of traditional horizontal methods. Additionally, Dr. Calabria incorporates techniques for male facelift patients that consider male hair growth patterns, skin thickness, and overall aesthetics.
