Facial structure has a dramatic impact on your overall appearance. A receding chin can make your nose look too large by comparison, while adding volume to the cheekbones can help minimize the appearance of jowling along the jawline. Sometimes, women or men who initially think they would benefit from rhinoplasty find that augmenting the chin or cheeks instead is the ideal solution to improve their facial contours.
During your consultation, Dr. Kay will talk with you about your goals for facial implants, as well as address any concerns you may have. He will also go over the specifics of your surgery in greater detail so you’re prepared for what to expect.

You may also look younger and more refreshed, as implants can help improve the look of slightly drooping skin through the jaw and cheeks, and you should also feel happier and more confident with your facial appearance after surgery.
