Male Cheek, Chin and Jaw Augmentation

At the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery, we treat a large variety of men in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles seeking natural improvements in their appearance. Dr. Talei is an Ivy League and dual fellowship-trained facial plastic surgeon specializing in both surgical and non-invasive techniques for male facial augmentation and rejuvenation.

Cheek Augmentation

The cheek is a 3-D structure and does not limit itself to just the bone. A close analysis must be performed to examine the bony and soft tissue components of the cheek in all three dimensions. Some patients benefit from bony augmentation, while others require soft tissue enhancement. Ethnicity plays a large role in the position of the cheek. The surgeon, with the patient, must carefully determine the desired improvement. Dr. Talei can perform cheek augmentation 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 provide anterior or lateral projection rapidly. The fillers most commonly used for this are Voluma and Radiesse, which are longer-lasting. However, nearly every 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 they are most commonly positioned 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 Dr. Talei’s preference.

Soft Tissue Augmentation

Soft tissue augmentation can be used at the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery to improve the appearance of a tired or aging face. Typically, facial fillers such as HLA fillers or fat transfer methods are used to achieve this, depending on the patient’s needs. These techniques can improve hollowing, saggy appearing skin, shadowing, wrinkles, and grooves, amongst a host of other issues. Soft tissue augmentation can often be combined with bony augmentation to provide the most natural and noticeable improvement.
Fat transfer can be performed over several minor sessions using fat removed from the abdomen. This may be performed under local anesthesia. HLA facial fillers may also be used and can provide a very reliable result. The type of filler used depends on where in the cheek the filler is to be injected.

Chin Augmentation

The chin, like the cheek, is a 3-D structure. Although reduction may easily be performed, most men at the Beverly Hills Center for Plastic & Laser Surgery request augmentation or enhancement. Using careful analysis and photography, Dr. Talei will work with the patient to determine the extent of augmentation desired.
The most commonly performed type of augmentation is 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 the patient’s request.
Another great and simple way to improve 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. 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 implant through hidden incisions through the mouth or facial fillers. Both have demonstrated significant, natural and reliable results.
Some patients elect to undergo jaw reduction. For most patients, this simply entails using 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 are the most effective. If bony reduction is indicated, Dr. Talei works with orthognathic specialists to provide the best care for his patients.
