Dr. Chaboki often combines chin implants at his Washington, DC practice with jaw implants or cheek implants.He also can incorporate them into other procedures like rhinoplasty or a face lift for Maryland area patients. Chin implants come in a variety of sizes and shapes to correct a weak or receding chin. The incision through which the implant will be placed is hidden in a natural crease under the chin so there will be no visible scars. Chin augmentation is an outpatient procedure that can be performed quickly (usually well under an hour).

The most permanent solution for cheek enhancement is with a silicone implant. Cheek augmentation with cheek implants is performed under IV sedation or general anesthesia and requires only a small incision inside the mouth. There will be swelling and bruising for a time after the procedure, but this will fade quickly to reveal a more attractive profile.
Another option for cheek enhancement is fat injections, performed either under sedation or general anesthesia. Fat injections have the possibility for long-term natural results although some touch-up injections may be necessary.
Building up the bridge of the nose is a popular request for some patients considering rhinoplasty from Maryland or Northern Virginia. Asian or African-American rhinoplasty patients may have a flatter nose and request some form of nasal augmentation. Patients with traumatic nasal injuries may have a collapsed bridge or "saddle nose." Nasal implants are placed via smalls incisions hidden inside the nose. Nasal augmentation with implants is an outpatient procedure with a short recovery time.
A more temporary method for facial augmentation is with injectable fillers such as Restylane®, JUVÉDERM® Injectable Gel, Sculptra® and RADIESSE®. These fillers must be repeated for continued results, but they are conveniently performed right in Dr. Chaboki's office and require little to no down time.
Dr. Chaboki offers BOTOX® Cosmetic in Washington, DC 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.
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.
