Cheek implants are an excellent choice for people who want permanent results that can be exceptionally consistent. It is a safe, office procedure and is even reversible. Implants are placed through a small incision under the upper lip to fill out the mid-face region, and create a more defined, youthful shape to the face.
Your jawbone and chin are what frame the lower part of your face. A strong, straight jawline can add a sense of youthfulness that can really define your facial structure and bring balance to the face. Patients of all ages may consider adding definition to their chin and jawline to achieve a better balance of beauty.
Adding definition with a chin implant or mandibular implant may be an excellent option for those who want a permanent solution that will give them the jawline they have always wanted. A small chin can make a nose look bigger, and a chin implant is a great way to correct this. A narrow face is also improved with a mandible implant. This is a short surgical procedure with minimal downtime. If your neck sagging is what is bothering you the most, frequently a chin implant will instantly correct facial proportions and improve the neck line as well.
