Full cheeks and a strong chin are associated with attractiveness and youth. Cheek implants can have a major impact on the appearance and self-confidence of a person whose cheeks have thinned or sunken due to age, illness or other causes. Likewise, a chin implant can help provide harmony to the facial features. Patients often seek a smaller nose when, in fact, a chin augmentation provides the balance needed for an attractive profile.
Implant sizes and shapes to augment the cheek and chin areas are tailored to each patient's desired appearance. The implants are placed during an outpatient procedure which usually takes less than an hour to perform and uses local or general anesthetic. Your doctor will make the necessary incisions in inconspicuous locations to allow for minimal scarring.
Scar revision is performed to reduce the appearance of scars caused by injury or previous surgery. Scars are by definition permanent, but surgery can narrow, fade and otherwise reduce the appearance of severe or unattractive scarring, which is especially helpful in areas of cosmetic importance such as the face and hands.
There are many surgical methods of scar revision, only some of which may be appropriate for a particular type of scar or its location. These include surgical excision, skin grafts, flap surgery and Z-plasty (repositioning a scar so that it aligns with the face and is less noticeable). The effectiveness of scar reduction depends on a number of factors, including the nature of the injury, your body's healing mechanism, the size and depth of the wound, how much blood supplies the area and the thickness and color of your skin.
