Reasons for Cheek Augmentation

Full, defined cheeks can significantly enhance a person’s face. They can add definition and add character to a person. Cheek augmentation can help give you strong looking cheek bones for people who don’t have them or return aging cheeks to their original fullness.

Some of the most common reasons for a cheek augmentation procedure are:

  • To permanently enhance cheeks (rather than using injectable fillers)
  • To accent the higher cheeks making them appear higher and fuller
  • To add fullness lost as a result of aging
  • To add distinction and strength to otherwise dull cheekbones

Procedure Details

Cheek augmentation procedures are performed by adding silicone implants to the target area to achieve the desired effect. A small incision is made inside the mouth and the cheek implant is positioned in a small pocket under the skin. By going through the mouth scarring is invisible. With all of the cheek implant choices available, the possibilities for a cheek augmentation are nearly endless.

What is Chin Augmentation?

Chin augmentation, or chin implant surgery, is a cosmetic procedure that is used to “strengthen” the appearance of the chin and add definition. This procedure is performed much like a breast implant procedure. A small incision is made under the chin and a small implant situated over the chin bone. Because the incision is made under the chin, scarring is nearly invisible. With over 100 different sizes and shapes of chin implants available, almost any desired look can be achieved by a chin augmentation surgery.

Why Are Chin Implants So Popular?

Many plastic surgeons speculate that the increase in chin augmentation procedures is the result of social media and improved video technology. As people spend more time in video conferences, our chins are featured more prominently. Seeing one’s chin front and center on a cellphone or video screen brings a feature to our attention that may otherwise be overlooked.

Other common reasons to have a chin augmentation procedure include:

  • Building up and enhancing a small chin
  • Creating a stronger, more proportionate chin and jawline
  • Providing a balance to one’s face.
