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.

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.
