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. If you are interested in enhancing your facial features, contact Cherry Creek Face and Skin to schedule a consultation.

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.
