Cheek/Chin implants

I dislike the way that I look and would like to improve my appearance through surgery. I have a hard time pinning down exactly what would improve my appearance. I think I would benefit from cheek implants and chin or jaw implants. I’ve seen a surgeon and am not a good candidate for double chin lipo (it’s excess skin, no fat present). Do I look like I would benefit from these?

An in person assessment is the best way to find out but based on the pictures, some check enhancement may help. You can start with an injectable filler before having implants.

Based on the pictures posted, need nothing done to the neck area.

maybe a filler or fat graft to the cheek and the chin area . Otherwise very handsome features.

In person examination and desired results need a long discussion, and plan to proceed.

Thank you for sharing your photos! Although it is difficult to say without an in-person examination, you may be a candidate for facial fillers to give your cheeks and jaw-line a more chiseled, defined appearance. Radiesse is firmer than most fillers, so it’s a frequent fix for deep grooves and to enhance bony contours, particularly the cheek area. This product typically lasts anywhere between 12 and 24 months. Radiesse is now virtually painless because it is mixed with lidocaine which numbs the areas as it is injected. But buyer beware--injection techniques can vary. It’s the art and science of what doctors do, and it’s important to choose your doctor wisely. I suggest finding a physician with plenty of experience using this product and making an appointment with a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options.
