In addressing facial concerns, chin and cheek augmentation are common options for plastic surgeons.
There are two options: the first being temporary fillers, the second for those looking to achieve enhanced, precise and permanent facial balance and proportion, facial implants.
The process essentially consists of tailoring a synthetic implant to provide the desired facial contours, creating a pocket beneath the skin, and inserting the implant.
Chin Augmentation is designed to enhance the overall balance of the lower face by improving deficiencies in the chin structure. This procedure is done on both men and women and is tailored specifically to each patient’s needs. A male patient may require a larger chin to give him a more “masculine” jawline; a female patient may require a chin that does not protrude but needs “support” on either side in order to have a clean and attractive jawline. A small or weak chin can make the neck appear “fatty” and undefined. The result is a subtle but distinct change in the overall aesthetic harmony of the face.
Cheek Augmentation is a procedure that is designed to address the drooping of the cheekbone and “cheek pad” which results in a “hollowed” appearance. Cheek augmentation is not designed to give bigger cheekbones. It is to replace the fullness that has been lost in the cheekbone area through the aging process.
