Strong facial contours often ensure balance and beauty. However, when men and women have a weak chin or have lost volume in the cheek area, they may be considering the options available to them for enhancing their appearance. At the practice of Dr. Samuel Lin, patients can ask about solutions for improving facial contours and adding improved definition such as the placement of chin and cheek implants.
- Chin implants – Many men and women who have a “weak” chin may notice that it appears as though they have a double chin—or no chin at all! A profile view might be poor and undefined. With a chin implant, patients can enlarge the protrusion of the chin to define the chin and jowl area, ensuring a more prominent appearance. With chin implants, patients can still achieve a natural look and improved profile without their treatment looking fake or exaggerated. It requires a doctor with a keen eye for symmetry and harmony to achieve the best results with chin implants.
- Cheek implants – The goal of chin implants is to increase the volume and the lift of the cheek area for improved facial definition. Cheek implants are similar to chin implants, being placed during surgery on the cheek bone. This treatment will combat problems such as lost volume and sagging skin.
