Male Cheek, Chin, & Jaw Augmentation

At the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery we treat a large variety of men seeking natural improvements in their appearance. Dr. Talei is a Dual Ivy League and Dual Fellowship trained Facial Plastic Surgeon specializing in the both surgical and non-invasive techniques for male facial augmentation and rejuvenation.

Cheek Augmentation

The cheek is a very 3-Dimestional structure and does not limit itself to just the bone. A close analysis must be performed to analyze the bony and soft tissue components of the cheek as well as the projection of the cheek in all 3 dimensions. Some patients will benefit from bony augmentation while others require soft tissue enhancement. Ethnicity plays a large role in position of the cheek as well and the surgeon with the patient must carefully determine the desired improvement. Cheek augmentation can be performed to provide a more masculine look, younger appearance or simply a more harmonious facial balance.

Bony Augmentation

Building on the bony pyramid of the cheek can be very simply performed with fillers in order to rapidly provide anterior or lateral projection. Fillers most commonly used for this are Voluma and Radiesse which are longer lasting, but nearly every type of Hyaluronic Acid (HLA) filler may be used.

If longer-lasting or more significant results are desired, the patient may elect to receive a facial implant. The implants may be placed a variety of ways but are most commonly placed through hidden incisions in the mouth. Over time, this is the less-costly and more significant form of augmentation. The type of implant used depends on the patient’s facial characteristics as well as surgeon preference.

Soft Tissue Augmentation

Soft tissue augmentation can be used to improve the appearance of the tired or aging face. Typically facial fillers such as HLA fillers or fat transfer methods are used to achieve this depending on the patients needs. These techniques can improve hollowing, saggy appearing skin, shadowing, wrinkles, and grooves amongst of host of other issues. Soft tissue augmentation can often be combined with bony augmentation to provide the most natural and noticeable improvement.

Fat transfer may be performed over several minor sessions using fat removed from the abdomen. This may be performed under local anesthesia. HLA Facial fillers may be used as well and provide a very reliable result. The type of filler used depends on where in the cheek the filler is injected.

Chin Augmentation

The chin, like the cheek, is a very 3 Dimensional structure. Although reduction may easily be performed, most men in our practice request augmentation or enhancement. Using careful analysis and photography, the surgeon and patient can determine together the extent of augmentation desired as well as the dimension or vector in which the change is to be made.

The most commonly performed type of augmentation is performed using an implant, which is placed through a hidden incision under the chin. A large variety of implants are available depending on the patient’s anatomy and desired result. This procedure can be performed under local or general anesthesia upon patient request.

Another great and simple way to obtain changes in the chin is to use facial fillers. Facial fillers used in the chin are predictable and can give a great result, but they are temporary as all facial fillers are.

Jaw Augmentation

Jaw augmentation procedures are a wonderful way to enhance the definition of the angle of the mandible and along the jawline. Men with weaker jawlines gain great benefit from this as it not only strengthens the appearance of the jaw, but it creates a more refined jawline and neck. Jaw augmentation may be performed with an implants through hidden incisions through the mouth or with Facial Fillers as with other areas in the face. Both have demonstrated significant, natural and reliable results.

Some patients elect to undergo jaw reduction. For most patients, this simply entails the use of Botox injections to decrease the size of a large masseter or chewing muscle (Masseteric Hypertrophy). The Botox injections are performed over several sessions in order to atrophy and shrink the muscle. In these cases, Botox, Xeomin and Dysport have been shown to be the most effective. If bony reduction is indicated, Dr. Talei works with Orthognathic specialists in order to provide the best care for his patients.

I am absolutely ecstatic about my results!!!!!! I am a model and actress as well as an occasional TV host. I have been performing upkeep for my face and lips in Beverly Hills for years and I was convinced I was with the most talented and famous surgeons and dermatologists, but boy was I wrong! One visit with Dr. Talei and my life has changed. He clearly and quickly explained the slow imbalance which had happened in my lips and face over time and we planned for a lip lift procedure. I did this under local anesthesia with no pain at all! He's the ONLY surgeon who can do this with NO scarring. All other doctors I reviewed had scars on at least half their patients. Now all of my friends in plastic surgery and fashion compliment me much more and they have no idea what I had done. This man is AMAZING!!!!

I went to Dr Talei for under eye filler using Restylane. Dr Talei was very thorough with each step in the process and made me feel very comfortable. The procedure was quick and painless! My under eyes have always been an insecurity for me and when I looked in the mirror after he was done I was beyond impressed with his work. I felt more confident and beautiful. I was able to leave his office and go right back to work! I highly recommend Dr Talei. He's friendly, has a lovely staff and truly cares about making his patients happy.

My experience with Dr. Ben Talei was very positive. He answered all my questions prior to the procedure and made me feel very comfortable. Before meeting him, I had heard all the rave about his work, and I am so glad I went through with the visit. I was very insecure with my "eleven" deep wrinkles in between my eyebrows, he was very fast and clean with this procedure and I couldn't be more grateful for this minor adjustment that has brought me a major confidence boost. Thank you Dr. Talei

You’re in good hands with Ben and his staff!

I used to see Dr Ben in New York and now I fly to LA to see him. I have no room for error and he is absolutely the only plastic surgeon I trust. Everyone else seems to be out for money. Every time I'm in his waiting room all I hear is praises and how he's the greatest. I completely agree. He's the most talented surgeon I've ever seen. It's worth the flight

I have worked in health care in Los Angeles for over 20 years and have always hesitated in referring plastic surgeons to my clients. Dr. Ben Talei, MD is in a class of his own. I am so pleased to be able to refer to Dr. Talei without hesitation, and consistently receive outstanding feedback on him. Dr. Talei brings a wealth of experience and exceptional skill, along with cutting edge techniques to his practice. Not only does Dr. Talei excel in every facet of care, but he has also cultivated a warm, kind and patient bedside manner that is second to none. Dr. Talei's office is a dynamic patient focused environment, I urge you to visit him!
