About Cheek & Chin Augmentation
Hollow cheeks or a recessed chin can cause a lack of facial definition, which may make you appear significantly older than you are. At Dr. Corbin Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Frederic Corbin performs surgical cheek and chin augmentation to improve contour and add balance to the face. This cosmetic surgery is done by surgically placing silicone implants in the cheeks or the chin to improve the structure of the face. At your initial consultation, Dr. Corbin can discuss both options and decide which would better fit your aesthetic concerns or if you'd benefit from a combination of both. Contact our Brea or Beverly Hills, CA office to schedule a consultation and find out how cheek or chin augmentation can help you reclaim a younger-looking appearance.
"Dr. Corbin performed my breast augmentation 20 years ago and the result was better than I expected. My breasts looked beautiful and did not look overdone nor fake. I had to tell my now husband that that I had implants, otherwise he would not have suspected. I had no visible scarring.Twenty years later - pregnancies, breast feeding and weight gain/loss, I decided I needed a lift. I just recently had my lift performed by Dr. Corbin. He is professional, honest and more than anything, trustworthy. These are the reasons I went back to him. He also goes the extra mile in after care to ensure his patients are healing healthily and beautifully. I absolutely love my result. My breasts once again look like they did in my 20s (even better) and I am approaching 50. His staff/front office professionals, Alice and Dee, are always so welcoming and caring. They seem to be truly invested in all of the patients that come in and out of their door. I always felt very comfortable with them.If I consider any other cosmetic procedures in the future, I will undoubtedly go back to Dr. Corbin. I highly recommend him."- Y.M. / Yelp / Mar 01, 2021

Candidates for Cheek or Chin Implants
The best candidates for cheek or chin augmentation are adults who:
- Desire fuller cheeks or a more defined chin
- Have lost facial volume with age
- Want to add balance and definition to their facial structure
- Have genetically hollow or flat cheeks or a small chin
- Have lost a lot of weight, leading to deflated cheeks
- Have facial asymmetry from a congenital defect, health condition, or trauma
- Are in good general health
Cheek & Chin Enhancement Surgical Technique
Prior to your cheek or chin augmentation, Dr. Corbin will perform a thorough examination to decide on a personalized treatment plan that is best for your unique cosmetic goals. Surgical cheek and chin enhancements are performed as outpatient procedures at an accredited facility because patients are typically sedated with general anesthesia.
For cheek implant surgery, thin incisions are created inside the in the gums so a pocket can be made above the cheekbone. Next, the implants will be securely placed and the incisions will be stitched closed. For chin augmentation, an incision is carefully made under your chin. Through this incision, a groove or pocket is created to secure the implant in its proper place, which involves shaving some of the tissue, cartilage, and bone to make grooves to securely hold your implant in position. Tiny sutures are used to connect and close the incisions.
What to Expect with Cheek and Chin Implants
With surgical cheek or chin augmentation, you should expect to experience tightness, swelling, and bruising for about 1 – 2 weeks following your surgery. Vigorous activity that may put strain on your facial muscles (like weight lifting) should be skipped for at least 7 – 10 days. Full healing typically takes around two months, at which point you should notice your more refined, proportionate facial structure. Outcomes typically last a long time.
