Chin Implant / Malar (Cheek) Implant

A small or “weak” chin (which many people are born with) can often result in an overall facial imbalance. It can cause the nose to appear larger than it is and the jawline to appear less defined. A chin implant is a very simple and easy way to restore the facial balance. It can be performed alone or in conjunction with a rhinoplasty or neck liposuction. The precise type and size of implant best suited for you will be determined after a detailed discussion and evaluation of your goals.

Having strong and angulated cheekbones is often considered to be a sign of beauty. In patients with cheek volume loss or sagging, unwanted attention can often be drawn to the area. A cheek implant is a very simple and easy way to add definition and restore mid-facial contour and harmony. After a careful facial analysis, cheek augmentation may be recommended depending on your goals and expectations.

To determine whether you are a good candidate for this procedure, Dr. Christian Paquet recommends a private, personal consultation and evaluation. To schedule a consultation please call our Concierge Patient Coordinator at (602) 726-6310 or email us at info@paquetplasticsurgery.com.
