What Is Chin Augmentation?
Chin augmentation is one of those cosmetic procedures that not a lot of people even realize they might benefit from. It isn’t until we catch a glimpse of a profile of ourselves that it even becomes a consideration. If your chin is small or underdeveloped, it might become a consideration very quickly.
Basically, chin augmentation is a procedure that helps to build up the chin area so it is more proportional to the rest of your face. Without it, your nose may appear bigger, an overbite may seem more pronounced and it may create a double chin.
What Is Cheek Augmentation?
Cheek augmentation is a procedure that essentially has the same goal as chin augmentation, only with your cheek bones. Since the ideal facial shape is triangular, with high cheekbones tapering downward to the chin, it’s easy to see how many of us miss that mark. Adding to that, aging and gravity can make the situation even more pronounced. Cheek augmentation will give you the high, prominent cheekbones that so many people long for. Improve your facial proportion, and improve your attractiveness!
The Procedures – Dr. Tarshis – A Gifted, Creative Surgical Sculpter
In cases where chin augmentation is beneficial, a chin implant will be used. Dr. Tarshis, based on his unique expertise and extensive experience will advise you what shape, size and type of implant would most compliment your face. A small incision is made under the chin or inside the mouth and then a pocket is created above the chin bone and below the muscle. A contoured chin implant is then inserted into the pocket that was created. You can expect your new chin implant to remain firmly in place. Your recovery will be quick and your incision will be virtually invisible.
Cheek implants are designed and contoured to be placed above your own cheekbones. The implant looks and feels like a natural cheekbone once they are in place. The incisions are invisible as they are inside your mouth. High cheekbones create a more attractive, sculpted look to your face.
Chin and Cheek implants are performed as an outpatient at Dr. Tarshis private clinic, the Institute of Cosmetic Surgery in Toronto, a state of the art, fully accredited surgical facility. The surgery is short, about an hour, performed under twilight anesthesia. You will be in a light sleep without any discomfort.
Recovery time for both chin and cheek implants is approximately 7-10 days.
