What are Chin and Cheek Augmentations?
Chin augmentation is a common aesthetic treatment that recontours the jawline and chin. Many times when a chin lacks shape and size, it can create an undefined profile. A number of techniques can be performed to improve the appearance of your chin, and one of the most popular procedures is placing a silicone implant to build a stronger jawline. Cheek augmentation is a procedure that utilizes silicone implants or dermal fillers to add volume to the cheeks, bringing balance and harmony to the facial features. In Denver, CO, facial plastic surgeon Dr. Raj TerKonda performs a multitude of cosmetic procedures to enhance the chin or the cheeks.

"Thank you Dr. Terkonda! I went in for a chin implant because I inherited my mothers weak chin. Dr. Terkonda and I had a good discussion about the symmetry of my face specifically that I have a round face and the result I was looking for was a more angular masculine jaw line. He explained the difference between a chin implant and genioplasty.He explained how genioplasty would actually pull the muscles attached to the bone in my chin forward and give my face a slightly more angular look. Because of my round face he also performed lipo under my chin and buccal fat removal. It’s been 6 weeks and I am extremely pleased with the results. The recovery was just as he explained, I was out of work only a couple of days and the majority of the swelling was gone in 10 days."- R. / Healthgrades / Jun 18, 2021

"Doctor Terkonda was absolutely excellent in his diagnosis, treatment options explanation, and surgery. Where as I could not breath before because the side of my nose had been crushed from an assault, I can breath well now! Insurance I used at the time was Blue Cross.Dr Terkonda has a great bedside manner, and really cared about me and my outcome. His surgical skills were awesome performing a septoplasty, turbinate reductions, in addition to other items in the same visit. Make sure to consult with this doctor if you need help with your nose and sinuses for breathing, have suffered traumatic injury, or would like cosmetic surgery.

How are Chin and Cheek Augmentations Performed?
If you are self-conscious because of the size and shape of your chin and dislike the weak profile it creates, chin augmentation can improve the lower aspect of your face. Patients with deficient cheek structure due to genetics, aging, or traumatic injury could benefit from cheek augmentation. Both procedures are typically performed under general anesthesia. During a chin augmentation, an incision is made just under your chin to place the implant device. Cheek augmentation incisions are typically made in the upper lip. In both cases, incisions are made where the scars will most likely be concealed. The outcome for surgery is often immediately noticeable, though there will be some redness, swelling, and bruising that will take a few weeks to heal. Heavy exercise should not be performed during this recovery window.
