Chin and Cheek Aesthetics

The thin cheek and jaw contour are among the most important aesthetic elements of the face. In addition to making the face look younger, cheekbones with a tight and pronounced jaw contour help other elements of the face such as the nose, forehead, lips to stand out.

In ideal facial contours, it is very important that each element retains its prominence and position and is compatible with other elements of the face according to the golden ratio. The contour of the cheeks and chin is sometimes congenital, and sometimes weakens depending on age and loses its distinctiveness. The face begins to look more tired and older than it is. When the contours of the face disappear, elements such as the eyes and lips also lose their emphasis on the face.

Cheek, cheekbone and jaw contour

Thin cheeks, dislocated cheekbones and a pronounced jaw contour can refresh the appearance of the face from head to toe, providing a lively and energetic appearance. Nowadays, with non-surgical techniques, highly effective results can be obtained from cheekbone and jaw contour clarification operations in a few minutes. These two operations, known as Hollywood aesthetics, are at the very beginning of the secrets of agelessness of world-famous stars.

So, what are the characteristics of these two operations and how are they performed?

Nefertiti botox, a non-surgical technique, takes its name from the Egyptian queen Nefertiti. The feature of this procedure is that in addition to making the jaw contour clearer, it also makes the neck look longer and taut.

In anti-aging, that is, rejuvenation aesthetics, it may not be enough to treat only wrinkles around the eyes and mouth. Because over time, the jaw and neck also age. The jawline becomes indistinct, coat marks appear on the neck. Here, the treatment of these problems with Nefertiti botox and filler injections is possible with injections administered in just a few minutes without the need for surgery.

The effects of decoction injections injected into the cheeks and jaws can last between 4 months and 2 years depending on the type of material used. In addition, there is also the possibility of returning the injected filling material. In case of dissatisfaction with the results, there are also products that dissolve the filling and remove the correction made.

Cheek thinning and cheekbone clarification

The facial area can become extremely oily over time, depending on aging or weight gain. With a bichectomy, the contour of the face can be reshaped by removing excessive lubrication on the cheek. In plastic surgery, excess fat on the cheeks can be reduced by removing excess fat with liposuction technique. Cheek fat removal aesthetics is a minimally invasive technique. The procedure is performed from the inside of the mouth so as not to leave marks on the cheek. It may take several weeks for the final results to appear. The results of the application are permanent.

Along with cheek thinning with a combined operation, wrinkles and volume deficiencies that occur especially in the middle part of the face can also be eliminated with filling and botox techniques. According to the needs, a big difference can be made in the appearance of the face by adding filler to the jaw line.

More detailed personal information can be obtained from plastic surgeons who are specialists in their field about these operations where patient satisfaction is highest.

Stay with love.
