Although many people do not notice it, a weak chin can significantly affect facial appearance, causing the nose to look larger or the neck to look loose. A chin implant is often performed to provide a more balanced facial appearance and create a chin that is stronger, wider, or longer, depending on each patient's individual goals. Also known as mentoplasty, chin augmentation is often performed in conjunction with rhinoplasty or other facial procedures in order to achieve optimal results.
During the mentoplasty procedure, an implant made of silicone or another soft, flexible material is inserted into the chin through a small incision underneath. The implant may be placed into a pocket or secured to the bone with screws for long-lasting results. This procedure usually takes about 30 minutes to perform, with patients being able to return to work and other regular activities the next day. Chin implants are considered a safe procedure with few risks, which can be further reduced by choosing an experienced surgeon like Dr. Wiesman to perform your procedure.
As we age, our skin begins to lose its fullness, and sagging, wrinkling, and hollowing occur. These changes and other effects of aging can be improved through the use of cosmetic fillers and volumizers. These treatments, often made from collagen, hyaluronic acid gel, and other natural substances, are injected directly into the skin to restore fullness and smooth out wrinkles and other fine lines and folds, such as the parentheses lines that develop around the nose and mouth. The injected substance supports the skin and restores the volume lost over time.
Cosmetic fillers and volumizers can be used to treat the cheeks, eyes, mouth, brow, chin, nose and any other area of the face that may be affected by aging. The results are immediately visible and continue to improve over several months.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is commonly used to reduce or eliminate the appearance of facial wrinkles. It is injected under the skin into areas surrounding the eyes, forehead, and mouth to smooth crow's feet, frown and worry lines, and lines on the neck. Made from a purified protein, BOTOX® relaxes wrinkles and gives the face a rejuvenated look. BOTOX® may also be useful for migraine headaches, excessive sweating, and eye and neck muscle spasms.
