Chin and Cheek Augmentation

Chin and Cheek Augmentation is done to complement and define the facial contour and to bring a more improved balance to the facial features.

Different procedures are available like artificial, solid implantation, using bone grafts and other firm tissue substitutes.

For Chin Augmentation, incisions are made in a crease under the chin and a pocket is created to help the implant to sit on the bone. The implant is inserted, and the incision is secured with sutures.

For Cheek Implants, masked 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 then secured with a skin stitches for several days. The incision is closed with dissolvable stitches.

The most versatile shaping procedure involve long lasting, safe, reversible injectable gels or fat grafting to create ideal cheek and chin balance. Soft tissue fillers could be tailored and contoured to the specific needs of the facial proportions, where solid implants have limited sizes and versatility.

A Chemical peeling is a treatment that can be used in removing the damaged outer layers of the skin by an acid solution. Chemical peeling can improve and enhance the skin's appearance. In this treatment, a chemical solution is first applied to your skin, which makes it quite "blister" and eventually it is peeled off. The new skin is usually much smoother and less wrinkled than the old skin.

Chemical peeling is known to be one of the oldest cosmetic treatment in the world which was performed in ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome to help enable people to accomplish a smoother, beautiful and more textured skin tone. Today, chemical facial peels are the most popular because they offer nearly immediate results and can be performed as an outpatient procedure.

Chemical peels are usually done on the face, neck, or hands. They can be used for:

  • Create more protrusion for a weak chin
  • Improve the overall facial profile
  • Improving the appearance of mild scars
  • Draw attention to the eyes for a more elegant appearance
  • Increase the strength and definition of facial features.
    • What are the Cons for this procedure?

      • A sensory nerve in the chin can get affected, resulting in temporary, or very rarely, permanent numbness of the lip.
      • Risk of infection.
      • Implant 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 accord with chin augmentation for better results
      During the Procedure

      In the pre-surgical consultation, the surgeon will review your facial profile and discuss what your goals are. It is better to be realistic in expectations. Long-term procedures generally involve implants, whereas shorter-terms are non-surgical injectable treatments.

      You will need to discuss your medical history and allergies with your surgeon in order to avoid adverse and negatives effects during and after the surgery.

      Before the Procedure

      Your surgeon will use injectable products to achieve long lasting symmetry and form for the nose and chin. The injectable products can be the patient’s own fat substances harvested from areas where the patient may not want fatty collections and this micro fat is then injected to the chin and cheeks.

      The Micro fat grafting technique used in cheek and chin augmentation can result in four to five years of natural, attractive cheek augmentation and chin augmentation corrections.

      Additional Procedures

      Patients can opt for other facial procedures that can be done alongside with the chin augmentation; these can include 5-minute nose job and Botox Injectables. It is best to speak with the doctor what other options can be suitable for you and your recovery.

      Risks and Complications

      Potential risks and complications that can occur from the surgery include:

      • Swelling
      • Hematoma
      • Weakness or numbness of the lower lip
      • Infections
      • Implant displacement
      • If you feel discomfort or notice any kind of complications following the surgery, contact your doctor immediately.

        After Care Instructions and Expectations

        You need to avoid chewing as much as possible initially following the surgery and have only soft food and liquids. There can be mild to modest bruising and some swelling for a few days after the procedure. You might need to take a few days leave from you work. Pain will be modest and usually painkillers are given for the relief in pain.

        After you have gone through your chin and cheek augmentation surgery you would be offered a comprehensive postoperative program of skin enhancement therapies to enhance your cheek and chin augmentation procedure.

        The goal of these comprehensive programs is not just to provide you with attractive and beautiful facial chin and cheek proportions, but also attractive and compelling skin over the enhanced facial contours
