Associates In Plastic Surgery
The prominences and depressions of facial bones give shape to the face. A strong chin and wide cheekbones are considered to be attractive. Procedures are available to increase or decrease the projection of the cheek, chin, jaw angle, and nose. We offer the following procedures:
- Cheek Augmentation: Cheeks can be re-shaped using implants. Cheek implants can be placed through incisions located in the mouth or through an incision similar to those used in lower eyelid surgery. Many different sizes and shapes of implants are available to meet any specific individual’s needs.
- Chin Procedures: The chin can be enhanced by placing an implant or by moving the chin bone itself. An implant can be placed either through an incision beneath the chin or inside the mouth. An alternate procedure involves bringing the chin itself forward. The chin is then secured in its new position with small bone screws or wires.
Keep in mind that post-operation, the patient’s ability to eat and chew is only restricted for a few days.
