Prominent cheekbones, a defined chin and jawline, and a proportionate, balanced appearance are all markers of traditional beauty. These can be achieved through the use of custom implants in a chin or cheek augmentation surgery. Chin and cheek implants are safe for the body and highly effective in creating a more flattering look that still appears natural. Dr. Christian Paquet offers quality chin and cheek augmentation for Phoenix area patients at Paquet Facial Plastic Surgery.

What is Chin Augmentation?
Chin and cheek augmentations are procedures designed to create a more prominent, flattering, or symmetrical shape in the chin and cheeks through the use of implants. These implants can be customized to fit the patient’s natural contours and create the desired shape. Chin or cheek implants are often recommended to balance the results of other facial plastic surgery procedures, such as a rhinoplasty or neck liposuction, to enhance results and maintain a proportionate appearance.
Candidates for Chin Augmentation
Most patients who are generally healthy and are nonsmokers are good candidates for chin or cheek augmentation. The typical candidate for these procedures will have naturally asymmetrical or poorly defined cheekbones, jawline, or chin. Raising these features using implants creates a more flattering and youthful appearance. During a consultation, Dr. Paquet will review your health history to ensure the procedure is safe for you. This includes any allergies, health conditions, or medications you take.
The Chin Augmentation Procedure
Chin augmentations are typically performed under general anesthesia. An incision is made inside the mouth or just below the chin. Through this incision, a pocket is formed on the chin before placing the chin implant directly on the bone. When the implant is properly in place, incisions are then closed with sutures.
REAL PATIENT REVIEW
“I cannot express how thrilled I am with Dr. Paquet and his staff. My fiancé and I met with Dr. Paquet in January 2022, and we knew immediately that this doctor and his staff would be the right choice. From consultation to the procedure to follow-up care, we have never felt like a number. I couldn’t be happier with my results (and just in time for my engagement photos!).”READ MORE REVIEWS
Recovery After Chin Augmentation
After chin or cheek augmentation, patients can return home with a trusted friend, family member, or caregiver who can drive them. Swelling, redness, bruising, and some discomfort are expected. Dr. Paquet will prescribe pain medication for the early stages of the recovery process. As incisions are often made within the mouth, the ability to move the mouth and lips may be limited, requiring patients to follow a liquid diet in some cases. Most patients are ready to return to work, school, or other non-strenuous routines within a week or two after their chin or cheek augmentation procedures. Dr. Paquet will monitor your healing progress during routine post-op appointments and advise when you can safely return to various activities.
