Chin and Cheek Augmentation
In general, facial plastic surgery is about restoration but in some cases enhancement is required to optimize the result. The most common enhancement Dr. Stevens performs is chin augmentation followed by malar (cheek) augmentation.
Modern implants are very biocompatible and yield a soft, natural looking augmentation. Chin augmentation is frequently performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty (cosmetic surgery of the nose). When performed by itself, chin augmentation can be performed in the office under local anesthesia.
Augmentation of the cheeks can lift the midface and restore the youthful “heart shape” to the face. It can be performed during facelift surgery without additional incisions.
Call Dr. Stevens for a consultation to discuss malar or chin augmentation.
