Frequently Asked Questions

Cheek and Chin Augmentation Toronto

Who is a candidate for Chin and Cheek Augmentation?

Clients with under projected and weak chin and cheek points, where the cheek and/or chin is not strong enough to create optimal facial contour and balance may be good candidates for chin augmentation and/or cheek augmentation.

Those patients with loss of facial fat, contours and volume will benefit from augmentation of the chin and cheek. Clients who wish to look more youthful, but are not yet prepared for a facelift, mini-lift, cosmetic surgery, a ThreadLift™ or Pan G™ program, may also benefit from volume augmentation of the cheek, chin and face.

What happens during a cheek and chin augmentation?

Cheek and chin augmentation involves increasing the projection of the chin and/or cheeks to more aesthetically pleasing proportions. The Chin and Cheek Augmentation can be accomplished with breaking the bones and moving them forward or with artificial firm implants that are surgically inserted on the bone, or with soft injectable gel or micro fat grafts.

The most versatile shaping techniques involve long lasting, safe, reversible injectable gels or fat grafting to create optimal cheek and chin balance. Soft tissue fillers can be tailored and contoured to the specific needs of the facial proportions, where solid implants have limited sizes and versatility.

The VolumaLift™ involves injecting gel based, soft tissue fillers or fat grafts into the droopy and deflated areas of your face. The cheek and chin augmentation is performed under topical and local anesthesia and takes less than one hour.

The risks are minimal and the soft tissue facial lift effects are impressive. It is recommended that first time patients perform the procedure with a shorter acting hyaluronic acid to assess the aesthetic outcome. Once it is determined that the VolumaLift™ achieved the desired aesthetic goals, the conversion to a more long-term, safe reversible gel filler or particulate stimulant filler (Radiesse and Sculptra) or fat grafts can be made, or patients can continue using hyaluronic acid once or twice per year.

Some patients with nasal bridge bumps, bulbous tips or “scoops” of the bridge will benefit from the injectable rhinoplasty.

Some of the common products for Cheek and Chin Augmenting Volumalifts include:

  • HYALURONIC ACID (HA): Juvederm, Voluma, Restylane and Perlane are forms of hyaluronic acid, a natural component of human skin. These injectable substances hold water and swell under the wrinkles and folds. Unlike collagen, hyaluronic acid products require no skin testing, as allergic reactions are rare. Results of with shorter acting HA’s are pleasing and may last 6-9 months. A VolumaLift™ cheek and chin augmentation using the hyaluronic acid volume can last anywhere from 18 – 24 months.
  • RADIESSE OR SCULPTRA: These products (Radiesse is a calcium hydroxyappetite suspension and Sculptra is a suspension of polygalacitc acid or fruit acid) are injectables that can be used during a VolumaLIft, cheek and chin augmentation, but are biostimulants (excite the body into making its own collagen) and need 2-3 injections over many weeks to achieve the desired long term VolumaLift™ results.
  • MICROFAT GRAFTING: Small fat grafts harvested with small needles from areas on your body where you may have been “banking” some extra fat and the purified and re-injected with small needles in the face during a Micro Fat Grafting VolumaLIft® cheek and chin augmentation procedure.

Recovery Time

There will likely be mild to modest bruising and some swelling for a few days after a VolumaLift™ cheek and chin augmentation procedure. We recommend that most patients plan on taking between 1-3 days off after the procedure to allow for any potential swelling or bruising time.

Pain will be modest and usually Tylenol extra strength as directed on the bottle will suffice for pain control. Voluma HA gel can last up to two years after a volumalift procedure.

VolumaLift™ cheek and chin augmentation with Voluma: starting from $2,500 plus tax.
