Chin and Cheek Enhancements – What Are Your Options

Chin and Cheeks

When you think about the features that make some faces memorable, the chin and the cheeks are often paramount to beauty and memory. Handsome and powerful men are often said to have a strong chin. Stunning women often have cheekbones that define the rest of their faces. When it comes to choosing chin and cheek enhancements, you have options. Find out a bit about these options before consulting with a plastic surgeon.

Why Chin or Cheek Enhancements Bring Balance and Harmony

Chin and cheek enhancements aren’t only for the rich and famous. The face area with your cheeks and chin provides balance and harmony, so your face looks more symmetrical and pleasing. Because the eyes, nose, and mouth need the balance provided by the cheeks and chin, it’s easy to understand how these procedures can enhance a face with a soft chin or sagging cheeks.
Dr. Khosh chooses from four procedures to bring this balance into place. Adding volume can be done with implants or fillers.

Three Procedures to Add Definition to Your Chin and Cheek Area

  1. Buccal Fat Removal is done to remove roundness from the cheeks. The buccal fat is what gives babies those adorable chubby cheeks, but if it does not dissipate, as usual, this procedure removes the excess fat from the cheek area for a more contoured appearance.
  2. Implants for both the chin and the cheeks can add volume. A chin implant can add strength and form to a weak chin, and cheek implants can add fullness and roundness to sagging cheeks.
  3. Fillers can add volume to the cheeks, chin and other areas, providing fullness without surgery.

When you schedule a consultation with Dr. Khosh, you can discuss these options and any other procedures Dr. Khosh recommends for bringing harmony and balance to your facial features.

Choosing a surgeon specializing in facial plastic surgery means you have a much greater opportunity for an excellent result. Dr. Maurice Khosh is a dual board-certified plastic surgeon in New York. He and his team provide top-quality facial plastic surgery in Manhattan. His education and experience have brought him numerous honors in facial plastic surgery, including chin and cheek implants.

What Dr. Khosh's Patients Say

Meredith G.
Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!
Jackie C.

After visiting and being evaluated by several doctors, I kept going back to Dr. Khosh. His tranquil spirit and professionalism were captivating. Thank you for a job well done and keeping me calm throughout the entire process. A special thanks to your staff Susan and Christine for all of their support as well. Hi highly recommend Dr. Khosh.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
Courtney G.
AMAZING!!!!!! I had Dr Khosh perform lipo on my chin/neck and my result is unbelievable! Better than I could have expected! I met with a couple of surgeons and the second I met with Dr Khosh I knew he was the one I was going with. He was compassionate and explained every detail of what would take place during the surgery and what to expect during recovery. I even emailed a few times during recovery with various questions and he got right back to me asap which was really comforting! I honestly fully recommend Dr Khosh, he did an amazing job and is an amazing person.

Not only does his work speak for himself, but he has excellent bedside manner. His kindness and patience is above and beyond. He takes the time to answer to every question you have to help you understand the process while at the same time making you feel so comfortable. From the first consultation i knew i was in good hands. I am so pleased with the result and forever thankful.
