hin and cheek augmentation can provide the necessary definition to balance out and give proportion to a face. It can also correct the loss of facial volume and associated youthful appearance. Chin augmentation can be performed by either placing an implant or moving your chin. For those fearful of surgery, filler injections are a viable alternative, but you will not get the same chin projection and definition that you will with a chin implant. Similarly, cheek augmentations can be performed by placing an implant or taking fatty tissue from other parts of the body and replacing the lost facial volume.
