Cheek & Chin Implants
The chin and cheekbones help give structure and definition to the face, and when family traits or other factors give them a flat or receded look, the whole face may appear less balanced. The plastic surgeons at Great Lakes Plastic & Hand Surgery have extensive experience helping patients restore a better balance to their features through subtle, effective cosmetic surgery procedures.
Chin Plastic Surgery
A Kalamazoo plastic surgery procedure called chin augmentation, also known as mentoplasty, allows both women and men to reshape the chin and improve the balance of the face as a whole. Great Lakes Plastic & Hand Surgery patients can reshape the chin either by enhancement with an implant or reduction surgery on the bone.
Many times a plastic surgeon may recommend chin surgery to a patient who is considering rhinoplasty to achieve facial proportion, as the size of the chin may magnify or minimize the perceived size of the nose. Patients typically find that chin plastic surgery helps provide harmony and balance to their facial features so that they feel more confident about the way they look.
Cheek Plastic Surgery
Underdeveloped or poorly defined cheekbones can dramatically influence how balanced your features appear. The surgeons at Great Lakes Plastic & Hand Surgery can correct hidden or poorly defined cheekbones by carefully placing custom-shaped implants along the cheekbones, subtly enhancing the contour and proportion of the face. The implants are specially designed to integrate naturally with your tissues so that they create a very natural look and feel.
Occasionally, lack of good definition at the cheekbones may result from changes in the position of facial tissues over time, and in these cases a Battle Creek facelift procedure may be your best choice.
