Improve Facial Contours with Chin and Cheek Implants

Chin & Cheek Implants San DiegoDr. Dennis Bucko of Belladerma Cosmetic Surgery & Skin Care Center is highly skilled at placing facial implants to enhance the structures of the face. Facial implants are biocompatible materials that can augment areas like the chin or cheeks to improve the harmony between the facial features. The type and size of the implant depends on the facial proportions and the goals of the patient.

To successfully augment the face, implants must be selected and placed by a knowledgeable plastic surgeon with a strong artistic sensibility. In addition to his surgical training and experience, Dr. Bucko is an artist and sculptor who appreciates the concepts of proportion and balance in his work. He is extremely adept at identifying the beauty in his patients and making subtle improvements for a more harmonious look.

More about Chin Implants

Facial Implants in San DiegoChin implants are designed to increase the size, definition and projection of a small or receding chin. In comparison to the other facial features, the chin typically does not get a lot of attention. However, when a person’s chin is weak or poorly defined, it makes other areas of the face look “off.” For example, a small chin can make the nose look more prominent. It can also worsen the appearance of sagging skin on the neck.

A chin implant has an unexpected positive effect on the rest of the facial features. It can make the nose look less prominent. Some patients initially request rhinoplasty, but are surprised when their plastic surgeon suggests a chin implant instead. A chin implant can also improve the contour and profile of the neck, giving it a more elegant appearance.

Individual results may vary

Chin implants come in many different sizes and shapes, and are custom-fit for the patient’s specific facial configurations. A chin implant is placed through an incision inside the mouth where the gum and lower lip meet, or under the chin in the upper neck area. These incision patterns do not leave perceptible scarring. The implant is carefully positioned on the end of the chin to improve definition and projection. Dr. Bucko also uses computer imaging to help evaluate each patient and define goals for changing the post-operative chin appearance before surgery.
