CHEEK & CHIN
CHEEK & CHIN IMPLANT
Adding shape, volume and contour, cheek implants or cheek augmentation is a transforming surgical procedure for patiebfs with narrow, weak cheek structure, as well as those who have lost cheek volume due to the natural ageing process. Cheek implantation effectively enhances the projection of the cheek, transforming sunken cheeks into more youthful looking, revitalised cheeks.
Chin ImplantChin augmentation surgery involves using specially designed chin implants to increase the size of a weak or recessed chin and therefore create an improved sense of balance in facial proportions.
There is also a more invasive option of chin augmentation using a technique called a sliding genioplasty. This is where the bone of the chin is cut using a specialised device called a Piezotome and then secured in its new position. Chin implants are generally much more commonly used as the procedure is more straightforward to perform.
There is also a non-surgical method to improve chin projection using HA fillers to increase volume and sculpt the chin in the clinic setting.
Chin augmentation using chin implants is also performed in conjunction with a rhinoplasty to restore balance to the face and improve facial aesthetics. Chin implants may also be combined with facelift surgery for a more defined chin and jawline.
