Chin & Cheek Augmentation and Buccal Fat Reduction
Chin and Cheek Augmentation can be an effective way to create a more attractive and more youthful appearance. Bone surgery (osteotomies), silicone implant surgery, and injectable procedures all can contribute to this goal. Chubby cheeks are a problem for others, and for these patients we offer Buccal Fat Pad excision.

An alternative approach involves inserting an implant between the bone and chin tissue through a short external incision under the chin. Similarly, in some cases the cheekbones may be built up by placing an implant over them as shown.
