Facial Implants (Chin, Cheek) Glendale, CA
A Facial Implants in Glendale helps to restore a more youthful appearance to your face.
Unfortunately, everyone is not born with a perfectly proportioned face. Many times due to genetics or an abnormality in the developmental growth areas of the face, deficiencies in projection or asymmetries in facial form and balance may occur. These deficiencies can be corrected or significantly improved with facial implants. Prominent cheekbones and a strong chin have long been considered traits of physical beauty.
With the development of new materials, there is now a safe and permanent treatment to correct the deficient chin and provide those high cheekbones. Many times these procedures can postpone the need for a facelift by improving the contour and restoring sagging tissue under the chin and in the midface area. A consultation with Dr. Martin Stepanyan can determine if you are a candidate for these procedures.

Aesthetic chin surgery is performed to improve the balance of your facial profile and correct a weak chin. Chin augmentation with implants is the procedure of choice for most patients with normally functioning teeth and jaw development. A biocompatible implant is placed over the bone structure of the lower jaw, augmenting the dimensions of your jaw. Depending on the region augmented, you can create a stronger and/or wider chin, and even lengthen your face.
Many people consider full cheeks very attractive. Weak cheeks can make your face appear gaunt, and create an aged appearance to the under-eye area. Cheek augmentation can restore the fullness to your cheeks if it has been lost with aging, or can create the appearance of strong cheek bones if you never had them.There are many options for aesthetic cheek surgery, depending on your particular appearance, and the look you wish to attain. The operation adds volume to the cheek by effectively augmenting the bone structure of the cheek region, enhancing the foundation of your mid-face.
