The most basic definition of facial beauty is based on symmetry and the proportional relationship between the features. Individuals with a relatively small or recessed chin can greatly improve the balance of their facial features through the surgical placement of a chin implant. During the aging process, chin volume can diminish, making chin augmentation an excellent option for restoring a youthful appearance. Chin implants are available in a variety of shapes and a range of sizes so that chin augmentation can be custom tailored to fit the patient. Results of chin augmentation are natural looking, and so subtle that many patients say their friends and family cannot even tell that they have had cosmetic surgery.
Lip augmentation procedures involve injecting materials into the lips to increase fullness and reduce fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Using a variety of fillers, including Juvéderm®, or fatty tissue injections, Dr. Bittar can produce a fuller mouth. Since both collagen and fat will eventually be absorbed into the body, additional injections may be needed to keep lips plump.
