The prominence, location, and definition of the cheeks and chin play a major role in creating an attractive facial silhouette. Most people want angular and well-defined facial contours, but sunken cheeks and a recessed chin can come in the way. If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your chin and cheeks, surgical augmentation may be the solution.
Elevate Your Chin & Cheek Contours
The cheeks and chin play a significant role in defining the contours and structure of your face. Most people want prominent and high cheeks and an externally projected chin. When your chin is recessed or your cheeks sunken, your face may feel like it’s lacking harmony and symmetry. Our board-certified surgeons perform personalized chin and cheek augmentation surgeries using fat transfers or implant techniques, helping you achieve the desired facial contours.
What is Chin Augmentation?
Chin augmentation is a surgical procedure that improves the external projection of your chin. If you have a small or recessed chin that negatively affects your facial profile, the surgeon can provide a silicone implant to balance your facial contours. The surgeon places the implant on the chin bone via an incision inside the mouth or under the chin. In either case, the incision is invisible or barely perceptible. The silicone implant enhances the projection of your chin, giving you a more attractive facial appearance.
What is Cheek Augmentation?
Cheek augmentation is a surgical procedure that enhances the contours of the cheeks. If you have sunken cheeks, the surgeon can enhance the volume of the cheeks using two techniques — cheek implants or fat transfers. If you go for an implant-based augmentation, the surgeon can place a silicone implant in your cheeks via an incision in the mouth. The fat grafting technique involves harvesting excess fat cells from another part of the body and injecting them into the cheeks, thus ensuring natural-looking volume enhancement.
