Reshape Your Face Without Surgery
V-shaped or V line face refers to a slim and oval face that narrows down to a small sharp chin end. This can be achieved non-surgically in some individuals with as simple as 3 to 9 injections of botox and fillers.
This shape was made famous by cute Japanese manga comics such as Sailor Moon and popularized by the K-pop wave in recent years. Besides the Japanese and Koreans, the Chinese also find it an attractive shape and refer to it as the ‘melon seed face’. Chins have often been thought to be a great indicator of personality with V-shaped chins being more feminine and elegant.
This face shape conforms to the rule of thirds for a universally attractive face that’s desirable in both eastern and western cultures. The rule of thirds divides the face into three equal portions where the bulk of the lower 1/3rd of the face is made up by the chin. Thus the chin plays a central role in facial harmony, beauty and balance. An ideally proportioned face will be where the length of the lower 1/3rd of the face is equal to that of the upper 1/3rd ot the face (forehead). This can be particularly noted on a facial profile.
While the mid-face and forehead are not easily altered, the chin is easily amendable with both surgical and non-surgical procedures making it an ideal target to change an individual’s appearance in a big positive way.
How to get a V-shaped face?
Nowadays, almost every Asian woman is craving a V-shaped face where it has become a ‘must-have’ in terms of beauty, and most are achieving this through non-surgical procedures. Fillers allow for fine manipulation of the chin and shaping of the face in a less invasive simple procedure.
Chin augmentation can be done with hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring component of the extracellular matrix in the face), which is injected into the chin to create the tip of the V.
The sides of the V is achieved by facial slimming to create a more defined jaw line. This can be done using botox injections to relax the masseter muscles which will reduce in size over time, hence reducing the bulk in the cheeks. The overall result will be a more defined jawline and chin giving a more youthful look, which usually lasts a year and may be repeated as desired.
