Cheek Augmentation and Chin Lift Vancouver, WA
Dr. Grishkevich performs procedures that enhance your facial contours, such as a chin lift and cheek augmentation
Importance of Chin Shape
Have you ever considered how your chin affects your appearance? Ideally, your facial features should be balanced and contoured to create highlights and shadows. Your chin plays an important role in how harmonious your features work together. Studies have revealed that an ideal chin shape is oval with a slightly inward curve, and the chin should be centered under the center point of your lower lip. Additionally, the ideal chin projection is defined as a chin that projects the same degree as your forehead and lips. If you weren’t born with the perfect chin, a chin enhancement can help.
What is a Chin Lift?
A chin lift is a cosmetic procedure that changes the shape and size of your chin. It can also be used to eliminate asymmetry. Traditionally, chin lifts are performed with silicone implants, but these medical devices have limitations and risks. At NW Laser, we offer chin lift procedures with lasers and fat transplants. The laser reshapes the soft tissues, and fat grafting is used to sculpt your chin shape and size.
How Aging Affects Your Chin
Natural anatomy is not the only reason why your chin may need some attention. The natural aging process causes your skin to sag. You lose fat as you get older, and the remaining fat starts to shift. You may notice that you have sagging along your jowls and wrinkles on your neck. A chin and neck lift combined with jaw enhancement surgery refreshes your appearance without surgery. The procedure is part of a partial laser face lift. The lifting laser stimulates new collagen production and contracts the skin. Using a laser for pulling the skin tight gives you a younger, rejuvenated appearance.
Chin Lift Procedure at NW Laser in Vancouver, WA
NW Laser offers chin laser sculpting to reshape the natural fat and tighten the skin. A laser chin lift creates a more ideal shape and projection to bring your facial features into harmony. Our chin laser technique is also recommended for older people who have signs of aging, such as wrinkles, displaced fat, and sagging jowls that make you look older. Your chin lift surgery may also include fat grafting and dermal filler injections to refine the results.
Double Chin and a Skin Lift Laser
Dr. Grishkevich offers a laser double chin lift for submental fullness. The laser melts away excess fat for a more contoured chin and jowl area.
Chin Lift Recovery and Results
Laser chin reshaping and jawline-altering surgery require little to no downtime. Unlike traditional techniques, our approach doesn’t require large incisions and trauma to the tissues. The incisions for the laser tip are small enough to heal on their own without sutures. Expect to have some minor swelling and bruising that lasts seven to 14 days.
About Cheek Augmentation
As part of your facial feature enhancement treatment plan, Dr. Grishkevich may recommend non-surgical cheek augmentation with fat grafts and dermal fillers. Traditional cheek augmentation surgery relies on silicone facial implants to add volume to the mid-face area. While you can choose from different types of cheek implants, the implants come in standardized shapes and sizes which may not be ideal for every facial shape. Rather than opt for an invasive plastic surgery cheek augmentation procedure with cheek implants, our approach may be more well-suited for your needs. If you are considering cheek and chin implants, we can combine your non-surgical cheekbone enhancement surgery with a laser chin lift.
Cheek Augmentation Options and Procedure
At NW Laser, we offer cheek augmentation with fillers and fat grafts. This approach to cheek enhancement produces results that look more natural than implants because we can precisely sculpt your cheeks and mid-face area. Our technique also works well for cheek and chin augmentation. Should you have wrinkles and displaced fat in these areas, we recommend cheek and chin fillers to restore your natural and more youthful contours.
Cheek Augmentation Recovery and Results
Cheek augmentation with fillers and fat grafts requires little downtime. The only healing is due to the extraction of fat via liposuction from another area of your body. You see the results of your cheek augmentation right away.
