Chin and Cheek Implants
Some people have faces with less prominent chin or cheek bones. Sometimes the less prominent chin is coupled with a prominent nose, which can give the perception of a face that is out of balance. The aging process also affects the skin, fat, muscles and bone of the face, which may cause a lack of structural balance. Regardless of the cause, structural implants may be used to restore or create an improvement in facial balance.
The implant must be sized appropriately, based on a detailed facial analysis by your surgeon. The approach (incision) is chosen carefully among the various options, after a thorough discussion of the “pros” and “cons” of each in detail during your in-office consultation.
Each patient is analyzed carefully and presents a different anatomic picture and requires a different set of tools for optimal, natural facial balance. You can be sure your treatment will be individualized to your particular needs.
