Candidate for a Chin Augmenatation
Candidates for Chin Augmentation -
Patients whose chin profiles are weak but have normally functioning jaws are candidates for Chin Augmentation. Many of these candidates have used injectable fillers in the past to strengthen the protrusion of their chins, but are looking for a permanent solution. If you are one of these patients, then you are a likely candidate for chin augmentation.
Slim Your Face!
Buccal fat pad removal will help to debulk the area around the corners of your mouth and can possibly enhance the appearance of your cheekbones. A necklift, or submentoplasty, is the best approach to tackle the area below your chin. Submental liposuction will help a little, but to get the optimum result you need to also work on the platysma bands and glands as well.
If you are looking for a more "chiseled" look you may want to also add a chin implant. This should extend the longevity of your necklift as well as defining the jaw even more for a masculine effect. Chin implants are a great option because is they require no maintenance or replacing, and if for some reason you are unsatisfied with the way the chin implant looks in the end, it can be removed under local anesthesia! Cheek implants or fillers can also be used to enhance the angular appearance of the cheek bones. We will perform cheek implants if desired, however we typically dissuade patients from going that route as they have a high rate of infection. Dermal fillers are much safer and more predictable. They are also very easily reversed if the results are not as desired.
I hope this helps!

Is there a way to turn my round fat face slimmer?
The following procedures would create a more ruggedly handsome face.
- Cheek augmentation with cheek implants to add angularity to the cheeks and mid face. This would be combined with liposuction to reduce the excess facial fat to further define the cheek shape.
- Augmentation of the mandibular angles using a dermal filler (jaw implants have too many unwanted side effects IMHO) to add volume, angularity and flare to the jaw line.
