Chin and Cheeks
A weak chin has an immense effect on your other facial features.
Your nose looks larger and your lower lip seems droopy.
A receding chin also affects your facial expression by conveying a "weak" look.
This is sensed rather than seen !
To correct it, a small incision is made beneath the chin. A synthetic implant, like a sponge, is then introduced inside the chin to enlarge it.
Infection of the implant is possible but uncommon. Some numbness of the lips may be experienced for a few days to a few weeks after surgery.
Hollow flat cheeks may be enhanced by fat injections. Flat cheeks may also be augmented by surgery.
A small incision is placed inside the mouth or the nose.
Implants, like a sponge, are introduced inside the cheeks.
Infection of these implants is possible but uncommon.
Some numbness of the cheeks is usually experienced for a few days to a few months after surgery.
Achieving the delicate aesthetic balance between the features of the human face is the essence of facial cosmetic surgery. The harmony of the facial structures may be disrupted as a result of hereditary factors, the aging process or through injury. Often facial implant surgery is the best solution to restore or enhance natural angles and correct the proportion of three main facial structures – the chin, cheek and jaw. In certain situations patients can simulate the result they may get with a cheek or chin implant by filling the cheeks with an injectable filler like Restylane or Perlane.
