About Chin & Cheek Enhancement

The shape and contours of the chin and cheek can affect your overall appearance and confidence. A prominent chin with full cheeks represents the hallmarks of beauty and youthful looks. If you have a naturally undersized chin or sunken cheeks, you can enhance your facial contours with chin and cheek enhancement. Dr. Lisiecki uses the latest and safest chin and cheek enhancement techniques, such as fillers, fat grafting, and implants, to help you achieve a more proportionate and balanced appearance.

What is chin enhancement?

Chin augmentation is a surgical or non-surgical treatment for individuals with a small or recessed chin. If your chin is undersized or lacking in prominence, it can negatively affect your overall facial harmony. During a chin enhancement procedure, the surgeon may use chin implants, fat transfers from other parts of the body, or dermal fillers to enhance the chin profile. The goal is to produce a more balanced facial appearance that improves your confidence.

What is cheek enhancement?

Cheek augmentation is a surgical or non-surgical treatment for individuals with hollow cheeks. You may have hollow and gaunt cheeks because of age-related loss of volume or genetic factors. But if you’re dissatisfied with the concave shape of your cheeks, you can opt for cheek augmentation. Dr. Lisiecki performs a highly personalized cheek enhancement procedure with dermal fillers (non-surgical) or fat transfers from other parts of the body (surgical).

Chin/ cheek enhancement can correct the following:

  • Depressions around the chin
  • Weak or undefined jawline
  • Recessed or undersized chin
  • Hollow or sunken cheeks
  • Deep creases on the cheeks
  • Mid-face loss of volume from the cheeks



Candidates for a chin/ cheek enhancement:

  • Are unhappy with their weak chin structure and jawline or hollow cheeks
  • Want to reverse the signs of aging on their cheeks
  • Want to achieve optimal facial harmony and balance
  • Have generally good physical and mental health
  • Have realistic expectations from the chin/ cheek enhancement procedure
  • Are nonsmokers or willing to stop smoking before the procedure

Types of chin/ cheek enhancement techniques

Fat Grafting

Fat grafting is one of the most effective and natural techniques for chin and cheek enhancement. The surgeon performs liposuction to extract excess fat cells from the donor site on the body, such as the tummy or hips, purifies the fat cells, and injects them into targeted regions on the chin or cheeks. The fat cells are drawn from the patient’s body, so they look completely natural and carry little risk of infection or rejection.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are ideal for patients seeking non-surgical chin or cheek enhancement. Fillers are cosmetic injections that add volume underneath the facial skin. The surgeon carefully injects the chosen fillers into targeted areas on the chin and cheeks to add volume. The filler instantly adds hyaluronic acid molecules underneath the skin, making the chin or cheeks look fuller and more contoured. This procedure doesn’t involve any downtime, and the results last for a year or more.

Implants (Only for Chin)

If you have an extremely weak or undersized chin and want permanent results, the surgeon may place chin implants. The surgeon will select the ideal shape and size for your chin implant based on your unique facial anatomy and goals. The chosen implant is carefully inserted underneath the skin during a surgical procedure, making the chin look more prominent. This procedure offers permanent and dramatic results.

Recovery after a chin/ cheek enhancement surgery

Your recovery and aftercare will depend on the chosen chin/ cheek enhancement techniques. Patients undergoing a surgical procedure for chin and cheek enhancement may have to take a few days off of work and avoid strenuous workouts for up to four weeks. But if you undergo a non-surgical cheek and chin enhancement with dermal fillers, you can resume your daily activities immediately with minimal downtime. The surgeon will provide a comprehensive overview of your aftercare guidelines.
