Chin enhancement effect is observed mostly on the side view of the face.
Using silicone prosthesis(implant) is the common procedure. Lately, using
long lasting injectable fillers is also the trend. Performing this procedure
with nose enhancement is more effective in capturing the ideal E line(esthetic
line), the straight line that connects tips of the nose, lip, and chin.
Enhancement with Silicone prosthesis
The same material used in nose enhancement is also available for chin
plasty to enhance a less developed chin bone. The approach is made inside
the oral cavity so that a scar cannot be observed on the surface.
Not as firm as prosthesis or Radiesse, but capable of shaping
the chin profile for few minutes. Lasts for less than a year.
Enhancement with Prosthesis(Implant)
Enhancing nose contour by silicone implant is more effective at the root
of nose. To obtain a more enhanced side profile, nasal tip enhancement
must be done with L-shape type prosthesis. To avoid nasal tip deformities
in later years, bigger tip proshesis is not advisable. Cartilage transplant
is much safer for this part.
Radiesse or Restylane
These fillers are also possible choices for nose lift but not so competent
at the nose tip
A suitable method for enhancing nasal tip. Autologous cartilages are
taken from the auricle, nasal septum, or other parts of the body.
Protruding forehead is considered as an esthetic factor in the orient,
while in western countries it is not a common demand because of its commonness
on face contour. It is similar to a lifted nose, which people in the orient
are desiring because of its rarity on people's faces..
Radiesse or Restylane
For few minutes you can see an augmented forehead with
this procedures but not permanent.
This procedure is not performed in our clinic because its
cosmetic outcome after years is not that good. Edges of the implant might
become obvious on the thin skin of this part of the body.
Ideal frontal view:
frontal's vertical length equally divided into 3 parts
horizontal length divided into equal 5 parts

Inner & Outer Canthoplasty
These procedures widen eyes horizontally giving them more shares on the
facial horizontal width. Excess skin folds at the inner and outer ends
of the eye are removed to show the hidden part.
Reduction or Enhancement of Submandibular Angle
This facial part, which is located at the outermost fifth of the division,
is another part, like the nose, that shows different demands in western
areas and in the orient. Western patients like to have more enhanced angle
to show more confident face, while in Asia, square-looking faces are undoubtedly
not likened. Osteotomy(bone cutting) of the angle is an effective method
, but recently, using Botox to reduce the hypertrophic masseter muscle.
For enhancement, silicone prosthesis or injectable fillers are available.
Besides being so popular with its use in facial expression lines,
Botox is also a treatment choice for reducing masseter muscle on the mandible
angle. With a few seconds of treatment, less emphasized mandibular angle
acquired temporarily from 4 to 6 months.
Liposuction of the Cheek(Mini Lipo)
Another method to reduce the outermost fifth of the face. Fat hypertophy
at the anterior portion of the lower cheek is also an issue for Asian people.
Liposuction is still the first choice of this small part. Mini lipo can
be done for 10 minutes.
A hollow temple shows aging appearance. Younger people, even how thin
they are, usually shows temples fully packed with muscles. Decreasing muscle
volume through aging process usually cause this issue. Silicone prosthesis
was the only remedy before even it might show disturbance in late years,
but this days, filler injections or fat injections are the choices.
