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 preformed my first breast augmentation nearly 20 yrs ago. Weight gain, weight loss, children, age.... Life just happened; there was no doubt Dr. Corbin was going to preform my revision. Other Surgeons wanted to solve my concerns with much larger implants.I wanted my breasts to be fuller on top and address the "side boob slide" with out sacrificing my natural look. Shape, height, and slope were very important to me.Dr. Corbin’s eye for symmetry and his experience made everything on my wish list a reality!I am 100% pleased with my surgery, recovery and results!The Staff, both in the office and in the operating room are amazing. My new implants are propionate and compliment my curves perfectly.10/10"- J.N. / Yelp / Aug 10, 2021

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.
