Chin & Cheek Procedures from NOVA Plastic Surgery

Whether to correct structural issues or simply make key parts of your face stand out, chin and cheek augmentation have become popular among male patients. NOVA Plastic Surgery shows the same care and attention to detail with these facial surgeries as with all others, giving you the appearance you’re looking for with minimal risk.

Chin Implants Considered

Chin implants involve inserting a structure over your chin in order to round it out and strengthen it. The structure can be made from bone, fat, silicon, or any number of other materials, depending on your goals and budget. To perform this procedure, we rely on the following steps:

  1. Anesthesia– We apply local anesthesia to numb the area, allowing you to receive the augmentation without pain.
  2. Incision– We make a cut inside your mouth or directly under your chin, giving us an opening in which to insert the implant.
  3. Insertion– We place the implant over the chin, screwing or stitching it into the bone so it remains firmly in place.
  4. Suturing– We close the opening in your mouth or chin with sutures, taking care to minimize the potential for scarring.

Because they involve anesthesia and skin incisions, chin implants carry the same risks as other forms of surgery. Through consultation, we take into account your entire health history and make sure augmentation is safe for you.

An Analysis of Cheek Augmentation

Augmenting your cheeks is similar to augmenting your chin, and typically involves numbing the area and then inserting an implant made from fat, bone, or synthetic materials. It may also require moving some of your cheekbones around in order to enhance the shape and make room for the implant. The goal is usually to draw attention to your cheeks, allowing them to play a more prominent role in your face.

Hyaluronic fillers can also be used to augment your cheeks, so you should consider them as well if you are thinking about implants. Implants have the advantage of being permanent, so you will not have to repeat the procedure. Fillers, however, are less invasive, and if you don’t end up liking the way they look, the effects will eventually go away. NOVA Plastic Surgery is happy to help you decide, giving you all the information you need to find the procedure that is right for you.

Plastic surgery is always a personal matter, and no one procedure or look is right for every man. NOVA’s goal is not to tell you how you should look, but rather to give you in-depth information and a wide range of options if you do decide to make a change.
