“Form Follows Function…”
If one seemingly unimportant feature on the face is disproportionally small, it can throw everything else off balance. For instance, if the chin is too small, the nose looks too large. If the cheek bones are too small, the face can seem one-dimensional. People come to Cleveland Cosmetic Surgery wondering if there are any options to help them improve their facial contour.
Those who desire more proportion and symmetry are often pleased with the results of facial augmentation, which is used to bring features into balance in order to improve the overall appearance of the face. Most commonly, the chin or cheeks are augmented, which can offer pleasing results to those who are bothered by a specific facial feature. Facial implants can be combined with other Cleveland Cosmetic Surgery procedures such as rhinoplasty or a WeekendLIFT™ to complete the makeover.
Who is a Candidate for Facial Implants?
A chin and cheek augmentation increases the size of a particular feature of the face to enhance symmetry and balance. Chin and cheek augmentation are performed on men and women of all ages.
The first step is to schedule a personal consultation with Dr. Diamantis or Dr. Goldschmidt. Communication is vital in reaching your goals. “The most critical procedure in surgery is the consultation”–Dr. “D.” Our Doctors encourage you to discuss your goals and the results you would like to achieve. Our team will work with you to reach an understanding about what you can expect from this procedure and what long-term benefits you will experience. You will be given specific instructions on how to prepare for your specific surgery. A thorough instructional booklet will be provided to explain everything you will need to know. Dr. Diamantis will instruct you on how to prepare for surgery, including guidelines on eating, drinking, smoking, and which medication should be taken or avoided.
The nose adds balance to the face and the chin helps to frame the face. Chin augmentation is often used to re-contour a recessive chin. Quite often, implant surgery to enhance the contours of the face is performed in conjunction with surgery of the nose (rhinoplasty). A chin implant adds strength and definition to the jawline. Chin augmentation by Drs. Diamantis and Goldschmidt provides an aesthetically pleasing and completely natural looking chin with correct proportions. Chin augmentation is performed as a short outpatient procedure that is completed in 30-45 minutes. A very short recovery time is normal. Chin implants become incorporated into the facial structure and feel like a normal part of the face within a matter of weeks. Chin augmentation with implants performed at Cleveland Cosmetic Surgery–Cleveland, Canton, Akron has helped many patients gain a more balanced , aesthetically pleasing face and jawline.
This surgical procedure is done to correct large and misaligned chins. Reshaping the chin is accomplished by repositioning the bone supporting the chin. Drs. Diamantis and Goldschmidt develop an incision inside the lower lip or under the chin. The chin bone is repositioned to the aesthetic spot to soften the jaw and stabilized through the incision.
