Chin & Cheek Implant Cleveland and Columbus
These are medical devices made from a variety of different materials that are placed under the skin to augment a facial feature. Facial implants come in a variety of sizes and shapes that are customized to the individual patients.
Chin implants may be performed as a single procedure or can be done in combination with other procedures such as rhinoplasty (nasal surgery) or facelift. An undersized weak chin can create imbalances with the harmony of the face resulting in a less defined jawline and making the nose appear to be larger than it is. In some instances, it is not a rhinoplasty that a patient needs to change the appearance of the nose but a chin implant.
Like chin implants, cheek implants are made from a variety of materials and come in different sizes and shapes that can be customized to the patients need. Weak cheekbones can cause the face to have a flat appearance or make the face look longer. Cheek implants are often used in conjunction with a facelift to overcome weak or flat cheekbones, resulting in a fuller more youthful look to the cheeks.
