Dr. Chaboki provides balance among facial features using chin and cheek implants at his Washington, DC practice. Cheek implants can enhance the midface on their own or when incorporated into other procedures like a face lift. Chin implants come in a variety of sizes and shapes to correct a weak or receding chin and are often combined with rhinoplasty.

While most patients seek plastic surgery to augment or add facial volume to fill wrinkles, some patients are born with too much facial volume or fat. Buccal fat reduction is a minor procedure where excess fat is removed from the mid facial area to create a slimmer face and to enhance the cheeks. The procedure is performed via small incisions inside the mouth. Generally, buccal fat reduction is more appropriate for younger patients who have very full or cherub faces. Both men and women may complain of having chipmunk cheeks, a "baby face," or looking too young for their age.
Dr. Chaboki offers BOTOX® Cosmetic as an alternative to plastic surgery. This minimally invasive treatment can slim or contour the jaw line by reducing the masseter muscles on the sides of the jaw. BOTOX changes the shape of your face gradually to create a smaller and more feminine jaw line. Results are typically seen after several weeks and maintained for months. Treatment doses for slimming the jaws are typically a little higher than standard BOTOX Cosmetic used for forehead wrinkles or crow's feet. Jaw reduction or masseter reduction, with BOTOX or plastic surgery, is very popular in Asian countries, such as China or South Korea. BOTOX treatment is performed in the office, and anesthesia is not required.
In addition to facelift surgery and chin augmentation, a double chin or full, sagging neck may be corrected with neck liposuction. For younger patients, typically, there is excess fat with or without weak lower jaw bone structure, which may run in the family. Neck liposuction with or without a chin implant can improve the jawline and neck contour. For older patients, a lower facelift with neck liposuction may be more appropriate to create a defined neck and jawline.
Neck liposuction is typically performed while the patient is under IV sedation, either on its own or in conjunction with a facelift or chin implant. Small, hidden incisions are placed behind the ears and under the chin to remove excess neck fat and tighten the skin. The procedure takes less than an hour. A snug elastic dressing under the neck is worn for a few days and then nightly for a a few weeks. Most patients resume light activities within a few days.
