Chiseled cheekbones, perfect chin and the line of the lower jaw are one of the main strengths of the legendary diva’s appearance. In our article we tell you what beauty transformations are behind these amazing proportions of the star and what ways you can achieve them.
With excellent innate data, Jolie’s facial features were literally acquired by her on the operating table at the dawn of her career. The advice to do plastic surgery at the same time was given to her by none other than her father, the famous actor Jon Voight. Thanks to this, Angie’s career has gone uphill, and today the world-recognized beauty is one of the most desirable women. We talked together with plastic surgeon Pavel Golovanev about how the correction, which Jolie decided to do at the time, is going, and whether it is possible to avoid surgery, but achieve the same result.
In Jolie’s case, we are talking about a serious, but very professionally carried out correction. To understand this, it is enough to compare a photo of a young actress and images taken at a more mature age — it is useless to deny the work of a plastic surgeon. In addition to changing the line of the lower third of the face, Jolie underwent rhinoplasty. All together provided a phenomenal result: the correct volume of the cheekbones, a straight neck-chin angle and the clearest angles of the lower jaw – features that make the actress’s face unforgettable.
What type of surgery was performed on the actress?
In the 90s, only silicone implants were used for such manipulations, which were made individually for each patient. Looking ahead, it is worth noting that today such a technique is also actively used, while both silicone and products made of special porous polyethylene are used, which are easy to adjust to individual features of the facial structure. However, other correction options have also appeared — for example, bone genioplasty.
In the case of an actress, it is more likely to talk about the Matrix system. It includes one large endoprosthesis in the chin area (it really became clearer and more massive after correction – previously Jolie lacked volume in this area), as well as small implants located at the corners of the lower jaw — the so-called mandibular angles.
Today, on average, the cost of such manipulation starts from 200 thousand rubles.
How is the correction going?
The good news is that when installing implants, you don’t have to think about scars on your face — they simply won’t be there. Tissue incisions are made in the oral cavity, the tissues are exfoliated, after which endoprostheses are attached to the bone base so that they cannot move. Finally, the doctor sews up the incisions.
Is it possible to achieve such an effect without surgery?
Today cosmetology can also offer several ways to correct this part of the face — for example, with fillers, as well as lipofilling, although the latter option refers more to plastic surgery, since liposuction must be performed before this.
If we talk about fillers, then it is usually possible to increase the chin or cheekbones by injecting drugs based on hyaluronic acid or calcium hydroxyapatite. This rather thick composition is injected with a blunt needle-cannula, which avoids unnecessary tissue injuries.
However, this method has several drawbacks: firstly, it is suitable only for owners of a thin face, and secondly, the effect of injections will not last long — from a year to a year and a half (when installing implants, the result can please a lifetime). Thirdly, those people who have a pronounced tendency to edema are in the group with contraindications. After all, hyaluronic acid is known to retain water, so in this case there is a risk of getting a puffy, swollen face.
