Chin & Cheek Augmentation

What is the perfect facial structure? For a face to be considered beautifully proportioned, the chin plays a role. Facial beauty is all about proportion, and involves balanced features, each in harmony with the rest. A small or receding chin can make you look less attractive and can be resolved with our Charlotte chin augmentation procedure. With a more balanced chin, your entire face can appear more appealing and attractive.

The same holds true for cheeks – overly flat cheeks can make your entire facial structure less attractive or give your face a child-like look that you don’t appreciate. Are you considering chin implants or cheek implants in Charlotte, NC? Find out more.

The Surgical Procedure for Chin or Cheek Implants

For a chin implant, the first step is to meet with Dr. Beck and speak with him about what you envision. With the help of the VECTRA 3D imaging system, you have the opportunity to see how various implants will change your appearance and make the right decision. The procedure involves placing a small incision, hidden beneath the chin, into which the implant is placed, and the incision closed.

For cheek implants, you have various options in size and shape, and we work closely with you to select the perfect enhancement for your unique facial structure. If you are having another procedure, such as a facelift, the implants can be placed through the same incision. If not, incisions are placed within the mouth in most cases.

Recovery After Chin or Cheek Implants

The recovery from these procedures is not exceptionally difficult. After surgery, the treated area will be bandaged so the area heals correctly and is protected. The bandages will remain for several days, and you will need to restrict your activities for at least one week. Some swelling and bruising is normal, but our use of specialized vitamin supplements can help you heal more quickly and ward off inflammation and bruising. There is little pain associated with these procedures, and after the first few days, it is not likely you will need to use any pain medication.

A Defined Jaw Can Dramatically Improve Your Facial Balance

A firm, beautifully-structure chin and jawline are big factors in overall facial balance. If you are unhappy with the size, shape, or appearance of your chin, it can be altered to bring a higher level of harmony to your other features. To achieve the most attractive result, the correct size, shape, and projection of the chin implant must be chosen, and there are many available options. Dr. Beck has a real eye for facial balance and will help you select the augmentation that will best enhance your other features, whether in chin or cheek implants, or both.

Choosing the Right Surgeon for Chin or Cheek Implants

Any facial surgery will affect you in the years ahead, and you cannot take any risk when selecting your surgeon. Board certification is a critical issue; while an MD may have had basic surgical training, only a board-certified plastic surgeon has undergone several years of added education and experience in facial surgeries, including reconstructive surgeries. Dr. Joel Beck is one of the nation’s most respected facial plastic surgeons, and is known for his ability to create balance, facial harmony, and enhancements that bring out the best in your other features. If you are living with a smaller chin or receding chin, we can help you achieve a more attractive look with these enhancements.
