Chin and Cheek Enlargement with Implants
Chin Augmentation (Implants)A chin augmentation will strengthen your profile by making a weak chin more prominent. This can have a surprisingly positive impact on the appearance of your nose.
Cheek Augmentation (Implants)Cheek augmentation will give fullness to flat cheekbones. They can be placed to give you more projection laterally, frontally, or both. To decide on which placement would be best for you and your facial structure, you should discuss this with your surgeon.
ScarsThe scars are usually on the inside of your mouth where they are never visible, regardless of their appearance. The stitches used to close your incisions are usually absorbable and will not require removal.
