Cheek & Chin Reshaping
Cheek and Chin shape correction:
Cheeks can be made fuller or leaner. Chubby cheeks can be made thinner by liposuction. Thin cheeks can be made fuller by fat grafting.
Chin augmentation (genioplasty or mentoplasty) can strengthen the appearance of a receding chin by increasing its projection. Simultaneously, it can create better harmony between the chin and other facial features for a more balanced profile. Chin augmentation will not affect your bite or jaw function.
There are two techniques for adding prominence and contour to your chin. One, performed through an incision inside the mouth, requires moving the chinbone. The other approach involves insertion of an implant. The incisions to insert the implant may be made inside the mouth .
To permit proper healing following chin augmentation, you may be placed on a liquid diet for a day or two. The area may be taped or bandaged.
Similarly, in some cases the cheekbones may be built up (augmented) by placing an implant over them. This is usually performed through an incision inside the mouth. After a chin or cheek augmentation, you will most likely be up and about the same day as surgery and back to work within few days.
