Chin & Cheek Implants - Allentown, PA

Beauty may only be skin deep. But, for centuries, well-defined facial features have been considered traits of physical beauty. Prominent cheek bones and a strong chin provide balance and definition. For those seeking these natural marks of distinction, make-up was their only alternative.

Now, thanks to modern technology, there is a safe, non-surgical method to correct a receding chin and provide those high cheekbones sought after by men and women worldwide. Chin augmentation,  and malar (cheek) augmentation, are performed by Dr. Lisa Bunin for patients in Allentown,Bethlehem, Easton and the Lehigh Valley region to provide a more vibrant and attractive look of distinction. These procedures can also benefit those with asymmetries or congenital defects.

 In patients 38 - 50 years old, cheek augmentation can improve the midfacial contour and restore sagging midfacial soft tissues, thus postponing the need for a facelift. For patients receiving a facelift, cheek enhancement can improve the results.

Are chin and cheek facial non-surgical implants for you?

During your initial cosmetic consultation, Dr. Bunin will assess the nature of your facial structure and discuss your concerns about your face, your expectations, and explain the probable outcome of your procedure.

We may show you several before and after treatment photographs of patients having similar facial structure, and we will explain the treatment you can expect to receive. Before and after photos may be taken of your face to document your results.

Are non-surgical chin and cheek implants safe?

Facial implants using a special dermal filler, Radiesse, have proven to provide a safe, predictable, low-cost, low-risk cosmetic procedure. Radiesse is made of natural materials present in our bodies, so there is no allergic reaction.

The chin and cheek enhancement procedure

Both chin and cheek augmentation procedures can be performed in the office using topical anesthesia. Radiesse is injected into the deeper tissues, just over the bone, to elevate the cheek and /or chin tissues and give new contour and definition.  It can be molded and smoothed,  creating a smooth, softer, more natural look than traditional surgical implants, and can be enhanced over time by touch ups in the office. This allows for a more natural  look as you continue to age.

What about insurance for chin and cheek implants?

Most health insurance does not cover procedures considered cosmetic.

If you have been wondering if having more distinctive facial features might enhance your appearance and improve your self-confidence, you should schedule a consultation with Dr. Bunin.
