Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

Facial Implants

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 facelift.
  • Chin implants come in a variety of sizes and shapes to correct a weak or receding chin and are often combined with rhinoplasty.

Cheek (Buccal Fat) Reduction

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.

Jaw Reduction

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.

Neck Liposuction

In addition to facelift surgery and chin augmentation, a double chin or full, sagging neck may be corrected with KYBELLA® injections or 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 few weeks. Most patients resume light activities within a few days.

How Much Does Facial Sculpting Cost?

Facial sculpting is customized to each patient based on an individual’s anatomy and personal preference. Cost will vary from patient to patient. These variations are usually related to factors such as the extensiveness of the procedure, where Dr. Chaboki performs the procedure, and the individual cost of the cheek implants themselves, if applicable. The cost of most facial sculpting surgical procedures falls somewhere in the range of $5,000 to $7,500 *. We offer you a personalized quote at the end of your consultation.
