Benefits

In the face, attractiveness is determined by balance. Each component of the face plays a role, including the nose, forehead and mouth. Two more subtle factors that actually play a dramatic part are the chin and cheeks. A weak chin or sunken cheeks can detract from an otherwise beautiful face. At Beautologie, we deal in total detail. Because of this, we offer chin and cheek augmentation to correct any imperfection in these areas.

Chin and Cheek Augmentation basics

A chin augmentation, otherwise known as a mentoplasty, makes use of a chin implant to give the natural chin more prominence and definition. By augmenting the chin, other areas of the face can actually be corrected, such as the neck or jowls. Our skilled surgeons strive to provide you with the best chin augmentation Fresno and Stockton has available.

At Beautologie we can also utilize facial fat transfer for cheek augmentations. We use the patient's own tissue to add volume without an implant. A cheek augmentation is especially helpful to patients with low cheekbones who want a more pronounced appearance. We also offer non-invasive dermal fillers to instantly correct a loss in volume in the cheeks.

Chin and Cheek Augmentation Procedure

With both a chin and cheek augmentation, the procedure begins with a thorough consultation. During this time, your doctor will perform an examination and contribute their professional opinion and expectations. They will make measurements to assess your facial contours. The purpose of the consultation is twofold: First, to answer any questions or concerns you have about either procedure, and second, to reach an understanding about the upcoming procedure. The best results are attained with motivated, informed patients, and that is exactly what we look to achieve.

For a chin augmentation, there are several incision options. The two primary incision options are inside the mouth and beneath the chin. The incision used will depend upon your anatomy and personal preference, and will be thoroughly discussed before undergoing the procedure.

Once the incision is made, the surgeon will carefully place the chin implant underneath the skin, taking care to make sure it is secure. Once the implant has been properly positioned, they will close the incision with techniques to minimize scarring. There are, of course, many different sizes of chin implants available, and your plastic surgeon will help you choose the best one for your face.

For a cheek augmentation, the surgeon uses liposuction techniques to collect undamaged fat cells, typically from the stomach, hips, thighs, and/or buttocks. Then the undamaged fat cells are isolated from liquid and damaged fat cells. Only whole, undamaged, and cleansed fat cells can be used. Finally, the undamaged fat cells are injected into targeted areas for a more appealing contour.

The surgeons at Beautologie use safe and precise techniques to help our patients reach their cosmetic goals and to strive for the best chin and cheek augmentation Fresno and Stockton provides.
