How Much Impact Do the Cheeks and Chin Have on Facial Aesthetics?

Facial Procedures New York NY

When we are younger, the cheeks and chin are not features that typically garner negative attention. However, as aging causes facial anatomy to change, you may lose balance and harmony. If you look in the mirror and see a face that has become unrecognizable, plastic surgery can offer rejuvenation solutions.

Facial appearance is largely molded by the balance of your features. Two of the most impactful facial features are the cheeks and chin. Imperfections such as fatty deposits, loose skin or sagging can make you look older and feel less attractive.

Cheek Augmentation

Although it may sound paradoxical, too much or too little fat in the cheeks can throw off facial balance. There are several potential solutions for restoring fuller cheeks that are attractive and create an attractive focal point.

Buccal fat removal is a procedure that is used to reduce the appearance of chubbiness in the cheeks. If your cheeks are disproportionate to other features, Dr. Maurice Khosh may recommend this treatment option in New York. Alternatively, you can benefit from cheek implants or facial fillers when the opposite is true. In all cases, each patient will receive advice based on individual facial anatomy.

Chin Sculpting

Sagging around the jowls is another issue that causes patients to turn to Dr. Maurice Khosh. Minimally invasive surgeries can tighten loose skin to rejuvenate the face. If you do not like the shape of your chin, implants are an option for creating a more attractive jawline. It is also possible to user fillers to better balance the area from the cheeks to the chin.

Dr. Khosh can take you through a consultation process to determine the right treatment path for your goals. If you are tired of looking at the signs of aging in your cheeks and chin, call today to book an appointment.

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.
Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

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.

i can finally breathe!! Dr. Khosh made the entire experience a breeze, it was truly a pleasure to be under his care. I am forever thankful and highly recommend him. 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.
