More and more, patients are exploring injectable fillers, such as Juvederm and Restylane, to alter or augment facial contour or shape. Chin Augmentation-San Jose, is now often performed using this method. The fillers are long-lasting, although temporary. Many people see it as a "try-out" to see what a small change might accomplish, and then decide on a permanent Chin Implant later.
This is an example of a patient who wished to refine and enhance her own natural beauty. She felt that her nose was too broad, and also wished to have her chin slightly augmented. After discussing her concerns with Dr. Lepore, she elected to proceed with Rhinoplasty and a Chin Implant in San Jose, for further enhancement. (Chin Implant surgery is becoming a more popular way of altering facial contours. Many patients are also exploring fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm, to temporarily augment the chin, or make alterations in facial structure.) In this patient's case, she selected a surgical chin implant. It was also determined that she would be best served with a nasal implant, to preserve a natural appearance, while giving her the definition she wanted. The procedures were performed in one session in our outpatient surgical suite. The patient is very happy with her results, and her new look.
Here is a beautiful young woman, who has been wanting to explore ways to augment her chin, and bring better balance to her face. Dr. Lepore explained the various ways to achieve chin augmentation- including injectable fillers, various facial surgeries, and chin augmentation with implants.
She chose to have an implant, and had the opportunity to examine and 'try on' a number of shapes and sizes. She is shown early in the recovery process (about 6 weeks after the procedure). Any swelling will soon resolve. Her features are much more in harmony, and she is very happy with her results.
Combining surgery with injectable fillers, to address this woman's concerns. Our patient wanted facial rejuvenation, particularly bothered by sagging skin of her upper and lower eyelids, and bags beneath the eyes. Dr. Bates performed blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) on her upper and lower lids, and used her own fat to smooth out the under eye areas. In addition, she had Renuvion skin tightening of her neck and jawline. And, to complete her renewal, injections of the long-lasting filler Voluma, for further enhancement of her jawline and chin. Just 8 weeks later, here are her results. She's loving her new sculpted facial shape, and chin projection (without implant). Her eyes refreshed, rejuvenated, and natural.
