The popularity of chin and cheek augmentation for facial enhancement today shouldn't come as a surprise. The concept of physical beauty in terms of well-defined facial features has been in existence for a long time. For today's men and women, having a high cheekbone and/or a solid chin is an asset. Gone are the days when makeup had to be used to cover up those facial anomalies and enhance the facial profile. With the arrival of chin and cheek augmentation, long-lasting solutions can be achieved.
Chin Augmentation (Mentoplasty)
By enhancing the projection of a receding chin, a chin augmentation can make it look better. There are two available options of chin augmentation to give the chin more prominence and contour. Both procedures require incisions to be made. However, while one technique involves shifting the chinbone, the other involves introducing an implant. A chin augmentation does not hamper jaw or bite function in any manner.
Advantages associated with the procedure include:
- Achieves symmetry between the chin and other features of the face
- Gives the face more youth
Cheek Augmentation (Malar Augmentation)
Insignificant cheekbones make the face look aged and somewhat fleshless. Cheek augmentation is the cosmetic surgery done to emphasize the cheekbones so that they look fuller and more youthful. It is done through the placement of an implant. Though the incision for the implanting is usually made inside the mouth, it may alternatively be made in the eye area. However, this might cause noticeable scarring. Projection of the cheek can be enhanced frontally, laterally or both, the result of getting the procedure done being high, aesthetically pleasing cheekbones.
Both chin and cheek augmentation procedures take not more than an hour to complete so for those with hectic schedules, they make a good option.
