Speculation surrounded Bristol Palin after she debuted a more defined jawline and chin. Was is plastic surgery, weight loss, a combination of the two or something else? It turns out, as she told US Weekly magazine, that she had corrective jaw surgery so her jaw and teeth could properly realign.
Still, Palin said she is pleased with the resulting look, and her transformation has created interest in chin augmentation.
Chin surgery improves and enhances jawline contours and balances a person’s face by adding projection to the chin. A specially shaped implant is inserted in front of the jawbone during the surgery.
There are also non-surgical options, such as injectable fillers, for improving the look of the chin. For instance, a concave chin could be corrected with hyaluronic acid fillers by temporarily building out the chin.
The Washington Post asked an oral and cosmetic facial surgeon’s opinion on Palin’s look, and he believes she did undergo “some procedure on her chin … It also appears as if she has had liposuction under her jaw.”
However, Palin said that she wouldn’t consider plastic surgery unless she “got in an accident or something terrible and got disfigured.”
Whether it was cosmetic, corrective or a combination, Palin is happy with her look. She told US Weekly, “I am absolutely thrilled with the results. I look older, more mature, and don’t have as much of a chubby little baby face!”
