Chin or Cheek Augmentation

Our Clinical Practice in Chin or Cheek Augmentation Surgery

In our practice, chin and cheek augmentation surgery are done under local anesthesia with mild sedation in our clinic, no hospitalization is needed. However in some cases, it is done under general anesthesia at our affiliated hospital in Phuket when it is performed simultaneously with other major cosmetic surgeries such as breast augmentation, liposuction or tummy tuck.

The goal of chin augmentation is to improve your profile by creating a better balance between your chin and other facial features. Increasing the projection of your chin will not affect your bite or jaw function.

During the initial consultation, you may be asked to look in a mirror and point out exactly what you would like to see improved. This will help us understand your expectations and determine whether they can realistically be achieved.

Get Educated in Chin or Cheek Augmentation Surgery

The Surgery: Chin or Cheek augmentation (also called genioplasty or mentoplasty) strengthens the appearance of a receding chin by increasing its projection. Similarly, the cheekbones can be made fuller, creating a more sculpted look using implants in cheek augmentation surgery.

The Incision Site: In chin augmentation, there are two techniques for adding prominence and contour to your chin. One is performed through an incision inside the mouth which requires moving the chinbone and the second one is a more common approach which involves insertion of a chin implant. The implant is inserted through an incisions inside your mouth or on the underside of your chin.

Moreover, Cheekbones Augmentation is achieved by placing a specially designed implant over your cheekbones. The procedure usually is performed through an incision inside the mouth. Alternatively, the cheek implants can be inserted through a lower eyelid or a brow lift incision.
