Chin and Cheek Augmentation for Subtle Facial Enhancement
Societies around the world have equated high cheekbones and a strong jawline with attractiveness, power, and authority. Apart from the human eyes, the cheekbones and jawline are what determine how photogenic a person’s face is. If a person has sunken cheeks and a weak jaw, they can detract from their appearance.
Chin implants are designed to provide a level of symmetry to the face. They allow a person’s face to be shaped in a balanced way with a contour that is attractive. Cheek implants give the face a fullness and definition that is equated with youth. When chin implants and cheek implants are used together, they are a powerful tool for making a person look rejuvenated and young.
Reasons Why You May Consider Chin or Cheek Implants
Chin and cheek augmentation may be right for you if there are aspects of your face that you are not happy with. A chin implant can extend and enlarge your chin if it is recessed or if it is small. If your cheeks lack distinction or if you have a weak jaw or chin profile, this procedure can help.
If your face is asymmetrical, it can bring balance to your face. It can add fullness to your cheeks if they have become hollowed either because of heredity or as an effect of aging. It can make your upper cheeks seem higher and fuller.
How is the Procedure Performed?
Chin surgery is performed by inserting the implant through an incision, thereby increasing the size of the jaw or chin. With cheek augmentation, an incision is made inside of your mouth. The implant is inserted, and sutures are used to stitch the incisions.
Recovering from Surgery
Ice packs can be used to help reduce swelling and bruising. It may take a few weeks before an individual can return to work. It may be recommended that you get ample rest and engage in minimal activity in the weeks following the surgery. Keeping your head elevated for the first few days after the surgery is key to recovery.
