Chin Enhancement: Enhance Chin Shape & Symmetry

Chin enhancement (genioplasty) is a surgical procedure that improves the appearance and symmetry of the chin. It’s commonly sought after by individuals seeking to correct a receding or weak chin, asymmetry, or disproportionate facial features. During the procedure, the surgeon may utilize implants made from silicone or other biocompatible materials to augment the chin’s size and projection, effectively enhancing facial balance and harmony.

Chin enhancement surgery begins with a thorough consultation, during which Dr. Snider evaluates your facial structure and goals. Various techniques may be used, including sliding genioplasty, where the bone is repositioned to alter the chin’s projection or the placement of pre-formed implants for a more predictable outcome. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia, and recovery may involve swelling and discomfort for a few days to a week. The final results become apparent within a few months after surgery.

  • Asymmetry in chin projection
  • Lack of definition in the chin area
  • Disproportionate facial features

Cheek Enhancement: Elevate Your Facial Contours

Cheek enhancement, also referred to as malar augmentation, is a cosmetic procedure aimed at improving the definition, volume, and symmetry of the cheeks. It’s commonly sought after by individuals desiring a more youthful appearance, as well as those seeking to address congenital facial asymmetry or age-related volume loss in the mid-face region. Cheek enhancement procedures can effectively restore facial harmony and balance by adding volume to sunken or flat cheeks, creating a more contoured and youthful appearance.

The procedure typically involves using implants made from materials such as silicone or the patient’s own fat through fat transfer techniques. During the consultation, Dr. Snider assesses your facial structure and goals to determine the most suitable approach. Cheek enhancement surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, with recovery involving some swelling and bruising that subsides over the following weeks. The final results become more apparent as swelling diminishes, typically revealing an enhanced facial profile.

These procedures are generally suitable for individuals seeking to address aesthetic concerns related to their chin or cheek contours.
