- Cheek Implants
Cheek implants can give you a more defined jawline and help correct sunken cheeks. They can also help define your face shape and enhance symmetry. If you wish to achieve a younger-looking and refreshed face, cheek implants might be your best option.
During the procedure, your doctor makes small incisions in your mouth or eyelid and inserts the implants. Afterward, they suture the incisions and provide you with after-care instructions that can accelerate healing.
- Chin Implants
Chin implants are used to fill in hollow areas, create a more defined jawline, and enhance the appearance of your chin. To know whether you are a candidate for chin augmentation, consider the volume lost in your face due to aging or other factors. Chin implants can help create a stronger and more proportional appearance. When placing the implants, your doctor can either make incisions inside your mouth, lower lip, or beneath the skin.
- Jaw Implants
Jaw implants correct a receding chin or a weak, crooked, or sunken jawline. This implant will help create balance in your face by adding volume where needed most. These implants can give you a more proportional appearance if you have an underdeveloped or weak chin because of genetics or aging.
