Facial sculpting with chin and cheek augmentation using silicone implants to give dimension to the face of a younger man
Before & After
Full, round cheeks are a sign of youth and vigor and requested by many Washington DC plastic surgery patients. Flat cheeks develop from naturally getting older and sun damage, but may also be genetic. Office non-surgical procedures are often the first choice for patients, who may be afraid of facial surgery or may not have the time for recovery. Despite the benefits of facial fillers (ex. Juvederm, Restylane, etc), facial fillers still cannot replace solid implants of the face in terms of projection and shape for appropriate patients. Patients will more likely obtain a 3-dimensional improvement in facial volume with facial implants.
This DC area man wanted to improve both the cheeks and chin. He always had a small chin and flat cheeks. Facial cosmetic options were evaluated with cosmetic surgeon Dr. Chaboki, including reviewing computer simulation photographs. Cheek and chin implants of a variety of shapes and sizes were evaluated in the office. Together with Dr. Chaboki’s advice, he chose extra large silicone implants due to the severity of bone deficiency.
Chin and cheek implant surgery was performed via anesthesia. All stitches dissolve with time. The initial recovery after facial implants is the first week, when a majority of bruising and swelling resolves for most patients. Patients generally resume exercise after 2 weeks after surgery.
What is the best cheek and chin augmentation option? There isn’t one best option for all patients. Dr. Chaboki will help patient’s decide which option is best for them, either surgical or non-surgical.
