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.

What are the Benefits of Chin and Cheek Augmentation?
Many patients are self-conscious about their profile and overall appearance due to a weak, set-back chin. In other cases, men and women may feel that they look older than they actually are as their once-prominent cheeks begin to hollow and flatten. With cheek and chin augmentation, patients can:
- Achieve long-lasting or even permanent results
- Boost their self-confidence
- Enhance their facial contours and proportions
- Eliminate the expense and upkeep of filler injections
Chin and Cheek Augmentation Reviews
"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.H. / Google / Aug 08, 2021
Who is a Candidate for Chin and Cheek Augmentation?
Chin and cheek augmentation provides the opportunity to feel more confident about your appearance and create a more balanced, proportionate look. Patients who have a weak or recessed chin, sunken cheeks, or unbalanced facial features with good remaining skin elasticity are typically considered excellent candidates for cheek and chin augmentation with implants and/or dermal fillers.
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.
