Chin Augmentation (Mentoplasty) is a procedure performed to enhance the chin. A small chin can make the nose appear larger and the neck appear ill-defined. Augmentation of the chin can help restore proper facial structure and harmony. Chin implant surgery is often performed in conjunction with a rhinoplasty or other facial rejuvenation procedures. In some cases, facial fillers or fat grafting can be used in place of implants. A modified chin implant can also be used to give more definition to the jawline.
Cheek augmentation is a procedure that adds volume to the cheek and mid-face. Prominent cheek bones are an important sign of youth and facial beauty. Underdeveloped cheek structure can give a flat or thin appearance to the face and is a common sign of aging.
