Enhance and Define Your Facial Features for a More Balanced Look

Chin and Cheek Augmentation

To enhance and define the facial contour and bring a more harmonious balance to facial features.

CHIN AUGMENTATION: Incisions are made in a crease under the chin and a pocket is created to help the implant sit on the bone. The implant is inserted and the incision is secured with sutures.

CHEEK IMPLANTS: Hidden incisions are made under the upper lip above the teeth and the implants are inserted into a pocket created over each cheekbone. The implants are secured with a skin suture for several days. The incision is closed with dissolvable sutures.

Create more protrusion for a weak chin, improve the overall facial profile, draw attention to the eyes for a more elegant appearance, and increase the strength and definition of facial features.

The silastic implants used have been used for several decades and have a very high safety profile.

A sensory nerve in the chin may be affected, resulting in temporary, or very rarely, permanent numbness of the lip.

Risk of infection.

Implant malplacement or displacement, which may require revision surgery.

The degree of augmentation required, depending on the patient’s desire for a greater or more subtle look.

Facial asymmetries that may affect final results.

Dental malocclusion or other jaw conditions, which could be better treated through oral surgery or orthodontia rather than chin augmentation.

The shape and size of chin or cheek implants.

If rhinoplasty should be considered in conjunction with chin augmentation for better results.

CHIN AUGMENTATION: Takes approximately 1 hour, or 30 minutes when performed in conjunction with other procedures such as rhinoplasty.

CHEEK AUGMENTATION: Takes approximately 90 minutes, or 1 hour when performed in conjunction with other procedures. After same-day discharge, swelling and discoloration are resolved by 1 week to 10 days.

Normal activities can be resumed immediately and full contact sports can be re-introduced after 6 weeks.
