Facial Augmentation encompasses everything from Dermal Fillers like Restylane, Juvederm, Perlane and Radiesse, to chin, cheek and nasal implants. Facial Fillers and Facial Implants are used to replace lost volume, restore facial support and to create more pleasing facial proportions. Facial Fillers are a great way to try out your new Facial Enhancement; however, fillers require periodic maintenance, while Facial Implants can provide long lasting correction.

Facial Augmentation: Chin, Cheek and Nasal Implants

Facial Augmentation is used to provide harmony between the different features of the face. The size of any single facial feature is not as important as its proportion to the rest of the face. For example, a small chin will make the nose look larger, while a large chin will make the nose look smaller. Facial Plastic Surgeons use this to our advantage when we evaluate a face. It helps guide us to the safest, most predictable and thus best methods for enhancing your face.

Facial Implants

There are many types of Facial Implants. The most common facial implants are chin implants, cheek implants and nasal implants. Like us, they come in many shapes and sizes. This allows Board Certified Plastic Surgeons to select the implant that is most harmonious with your face.
