    Chin Implants Augmentation

    Chin Augmentation

    Chin implants augmentation cosmetic surgery may be recommended for anybody looking to improve the shape of their chin and overall facial features. The cosmetic surgery can be performed on both men and women by an experienced and capable facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon. The surgery involves facial implants for chin advancement and enlargement.

    Your surgeon will discuss all aspects of the procedure during the initial consultation to help you make the right decision. Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides chin implants augmentation surgery to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding locations.

    Benefits of Chin Augmentation

    Chin implants augmentation surgery is designed to provide balance and make the chin appear more proportionate to the rest of the face. Weak or recessive chins can make the entire face appear fleshy, especially around the neck area. Weak chins tend to accentuate the nose, even when it is of a normal size. It gets worse if you have a large nose to begin with.

    Chin enhancement surgery can help you regain sustainable harmony among your facial features. Nothing will appear fleshy or look out of place. Chin implant surgery improves the overall balance of the facial structure. Sometimes, chin augmentation and rhinoplasty surgeries are combined to create an ideal balance between the nose and chin.

    Ideal Candidacy for Chin Augmentation

    Suitable candidates for this cosmetic surgery procedure will have one or more of the following characteristics:

    • Recessed chin
    • Pointed or squared chin
    • Prominent nose
    • Fleshy neck

    Chin augmentation may be recommended as an additional procedure for patients that are seeking cheek implants, rhinoplasty, or lip augmentation surgeries. Your cosmetic surgeon may recommend the procedure if you are seeking help with a poorly defined jaw or a large nose.

    What Does the Procedure Involve?

    Plastic surgeons usually recommend chin implants to enlarge a recessive chin. This is done to supplement the bone below the teeth, in front of the jaw. Chin implants are placed under the skin and offer a more permanent boost to the definition and strength of the chin. You can enjoy an attractive and proportionate natural-appearing chin with this procedure.

    Chin augmentation procedures are usually performed as outpatient and can last from anywhere between 45 minutes and two hours. The duration depends on the complexity of a particular case and the number of additional procedures combined. Your surgeon will decide whether to administer local or general anesthesia.

    An incision will be made on the inside of the mouth or below the chin. This will be between the gum and lower lip to insert the implant. Intra-mouth incisions have a higher risk of infection. However, it prevents external scarring. Your surgeon will position the implant in front of the jawbone.

    They will then check to ensure the implant is properly balanced. In some cases, the surgeon may need to modify or adjust it to achieve the desired look. Sutures are used to keep the chin implant in place.

    Restylane Treatment: Hyaluronic Acid Wrinkle Fillers

    Restylane

    Restylane is a facial filler injectable made from NASHA or non-animal stabilized hyaluronic acid. The filler doesn’t involve any animal products and is available in gel form. Hyaluronic acid is the main component in Restylane. This substance is found naturally in the human skin and tissue. Ergo, there is no need to undergo an allergy test prior to the non-surgical injection procedure.

    Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides Restylane cosmetic filler injections to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding communities.

    Restylane Facial Filler Advantages

    Hyaluronic acid is responsible for providing youthfulness and firmness to the skin. It plays a pivotal role in maintaining skin suppleness. However, the acid tends to get depleted over time as a result of aging and other factors. Your facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon will recommend Restylane injection to revitalize your skin and restore volume loss in the face.

    The substance is biodegradable. This means that it will gradually disintegrate and combine with your skin tissue. A single Restylane injection can offer results lasting up to 6 to 12 months. You will notice visible changes in your scars, wrinkles, folds, and other minor impressions.

    Common benefits of Restylane include:

    • Reducing facial wrinkles
    • Mitigating nasolabial folds
    • Adding volume to cheek hollows
    • Enhancing the chin
    • Reducing acne scars
    • Filling depressions and imperfections under your eyes
    • Softening jowl impact
    • Defining lips
    • Adding volume to lips
    • Lifting eyebrows
    • Minimizing smile lines, worry lines, crow’s feet, and marionette lines

    Eye Rejuvenation Using Restylane

    Under-eye hollows and dark circles can make you look older than you are. Many people are troubled by these obvious signs of aging. Restylane is an FDA approved dermal filler to address these skin imperfections among other signs of aging. The dermal filler can go a long way in restoring a youthful appearance and giving your face a more refreshed look. The best part is that these benefits can be achieved without going through the rigors of cosmetic surgery.

    The filler is useful in improving dark circles since it can be molded into any shape. Your treatment provider will insert Restylane along your orbital rim for this purpose. You may notice bumps and lumps appearing under the skin after the treatment. Your facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon will remove these. Restylane has a unique viscosity which makes it the preferred choice for under-eye skin treatment.

    Lip Enhancement Using Restylane

    Lines around the mouth and thinning lips are a sure sign of aging. Your lips may start to lose their shape and definition as well due to aging or other several factors. Restylane dermal filler can help you attain a rejuvenated and refreshed face by augmenting your lips to fit your desired goals. The injectable can also be used for decreasing the vertical line above your lip area.

    Restylane Silk is the only FDA approved substance currently available for mild lip enhancement. The filler can easily smooth wrinkles and lines around the mouth while creating a more desirable shape. Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian receives patients from Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and nearby areas for Restylane facial filler injection procedure.

    Lip Enhancement Plastic Surgery

    Lip Enhancement 

    Many women dream of having sensual lips for that beautiful pout. Fuller lips can help enhance your facial beauty. Fortunately, you can achieve all your aesthetic goals in a sustainable manner with lip augmentation cosmetic surgery. There are also options for women that don’t want to undergo a surgery. Your facial plastic surgeon may recommend a treatment consisting of dermal fillers for plumper and more defined lips.

    However, dermal fillers provide results for a short period of time while lip augmentation surgeries are permanent. Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides surgical lip enhancement plastic surgery to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding communities.

    Ideal Candidate

    Lip enhancement works well for anybody from any age group. However, the surgery is recommended for people that have naturally thin lips or suffer from loss of volume because of aging and other related factors. Candidates should be in good health before getting a lip augmentation surgery to ensure quick recovery. You should also have realistic expectations to begin with.

    Augmentation with Lip Implant

    You can achieve permanent lip augmentation with an implant. There are a wide variety of synthetic lip implants available. Your cosmetic surgeon will recommend one that is most appropriate to your goals and needs. Lip implants are designed to improve the shape and volume of lips. The surgery can be completed in about an hour when performed by an experienced facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon.

    Your surgeon will make tiny incisions on your lips, usually at the mouth corners. This allows the incisions to remain discreet. A thin tunnel will be carved out through these incisions to make space for the implant. Once the implants are inserted the surgeon will thread it properly through the lip. If required, the implant will be trimmed precisely and the incisions closed.

    Fat Transfer Lip Augmentation

    Another way of getting your desired lip shape and volume is by getting a lip augmentation with fat transfer surgery. This is usually recommended for patients where implants are not suitable. The procedure involves removing excess fat from another area on the patient and filling the lips with that fat. You will get soft and natural looking results with this technique.

    The procedure is less invasive as opposed to implants and the biggest advantage is that your body is less likely to develop an allergen reaction because the fat tissue belongs to you. Your surgeon will remove excess fat from another donor site, such as the abdomen or thigh. This fat will then be injected using a blunt needle into the lips. The injection will leave very tiny prick marks on your lips.

    The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia as opposed to general anesthesia. However, in some cases, surgeons administer light general anesthesia. An added advantage of this procedure is that excess fat is removed from another site on your body, making you look thinner.

    Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian receives patients from Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and nearby areas for lip enhancement plastic surgery procedures.

    Non-Surgical Lip Enhancement

    Lip Enhancement

    Dermal filler injections are used during non-surgical lip augmentation to provide fuller and plumper looking lips. Dermal injectables can help plump lips, replace lost volume, smooth wrinkles, and restore their youthful appearance.

    Dermal fillers comprising of naturally-occurring hyaluronic acid is injected into the lips using a very fine needle. This is unlike regular cosmetic surgery since it is non-invasive. Dermal fillers can be used to add volume to aging lips or enhance younger lips.

    Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides non-surgical lip enhancement treatments to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding communities.

    Advantages of Lip Filler Treatment

    Dermal fillers used during non-surgical lip enhancement treatment offer the following benefits:

    • Safe, FDA approved
    • Replenishes lost volume
    • Natural results
    • Non-invasive
    • Non-surgical

    Goals of Non-Surgical Lip Enhancement

    Patients visiting a facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon don’t always have the same goals in mind. Their goals can vary by gender, age, and ethnicity. For instance, younger patients usually want to add more volume to their lips or improve the overall asymmetry while older patients want to correct perioral lines or thinning lips.

    Your surgeon will take pre-treatment photographs during the initial consultation. They will then discuss your goals in detail and evaluate whether you make a good candidate for the procedure or not. These are a few goals that can be achieved with lip filler treatments:

    • Reduction of lip lines
    • Increase in lip definition
    • Increase in lip volume
    • Correction of lip asymmetry

    Dermal Filler Options for Lip Augmentation

    There are several dermal filler options when you want to enhance the shape and size of your lips in a non-surgical, non-invasive, and safe way. Your treatment provider will discuss your goals in detail before recommending the best treatment plan. They will offer several treatment options depending on your personal goals and appearance.

    Generally, the following dermal filler solutions are used in a lip augmentation procedure:

    • Restylane Refyne
    • Restylane
    • Restylane Kysse
    • Restylane Silk
    • Juvederm Volbella
    • Juvederm Ultra

    It is important that you let the treatment provider know about your aesthetic goals and expectations. Each of these dermal fillers offers unique and different advantages or results. For instance, Restylane is a salient substance if you want to enhance your lip volume significantly, while Restylane Silk provides for more subtle and natural looking enhancements.

    Restylane Refyne is a more popular lip filler treatment among young patients looking for shapelier lips. It is followed by Restylane Silk. Restylane is usually preferred by older patients seeking help with loss of lip definition and perioral lines.

    Restylane Kysse is the more recent addition to the treatment options after being awarded FDA approval. Many plastic surgeons have started offering this dermal filler because it creates more natural-looking results without hampering normal expression.

    While Juvederm offers the same results, Restylane Kysse gets the job done with significantly less product. Additionally, the results of lip enhancement can last for up to a year. Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian receives patients from Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and nearby areas for non-surgical lip enhancement procedures.

    Lip Enhancement Options

    Lip Enhancement

    Aging along with several other factors can cause lips to lose their definition and become thinner. There are several non-surgical aesthetic treatments and cosmetic surgery to enhance the overall appearance of your lips, including the pout. Your facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon will discuss all available options during the initial consultation. They will help you take the right decision.

    Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides lip enhancement treatments to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding locations.

    Lip Implants Plastic Surgery

    You should consider lip augmentation using implants if you are looking for long-term results. There are several types of high quality synthetic lip implants available. Your cosmetic surgeon will recommend implants best suited for your purpose, whether it is to make your lips shapelier or fuller. It takes about an hour for this cosmetic surgery to be completed.

    Your facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon will make small incisions at the mouth corners in discreet positions. They will carve a tunnel-like pocket through the incisions to place the implant. The surgeon will thread the implant through your entire lip and trim it precisely to the desired length before closing the incisions.

    Enhancing Lips with Fat Transfer

    Lip augmentation through fat transfer plastic surgery is another option for fuller lips. This procedure involves inserting your own body tissue from surplus areas for increasing volume in your lips. The result is more natural looking and is achieved in a far less invasive way.

    There are several benefits of using fat tissue from the body. Risk of allergic reaction and rejection is significantly reduced. The cosmetic surgery procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia.

    Dermal Filler Lip Enhancement

    Restylane, Juvederm or other hyaluronic acid based dermal filler injectables are used to give lips a fuller and shapelier appearance. These are recommended for people wanting fuller lips without undergoing facial surgery. These dermal fillers are FDA approved and can help you achieve a more balanced and even lip symmetry.

    Dermal filler injections can help those looking to add more definition to their lips or restore their youthful lip appearance. The injections contain consistent and smooth gels, especially Juvederm and Restylane. The provider will use tiny needles to inject these compounds for natural looking results.

    Lip Enhancement Using Laser Technique

    Laser lip enhancement involves delivering precise laser energy pulses. A series of these pulses are delivered into the lip mucosa. New collagen formation is triggered as heat makes its way to the underlying tissues. This creates fuller lips.

    The shape of your natural lips remains intact with this treatment while providing plumper and fuller looking lips. You may need to undergo multiple laser therapies to achieve the desired augmentation. You may also require routine maintenance procedures once the treatment is complete to retain the shape and fullness of your new lips. Maintenance treatment is recommended every six months.

    Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian receives patients from Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and nearby areas for lip enhancement procedures.

    Mole / Skin Tag Removal Off The Face 

    Mole Removal 

    Moles are pigmented groups of cells that appear on the skin, often before the age of 20. Most moles are brown although some may appear black, blue, or skin-colored. Generally, moles are harmless and you won’t suffer any pain or discomfort unless something rubs against them. 

    Skin tags are harmless flaps of soft skin that rise above the skin surface on a narrow stalk. The reason for their appearance is not known, but they commonly occur in the armpits and body folds, and also on the trunk and neck. 

    Facial plastic and reconstruction surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides mole and skin tag removal to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding communities.  

    Should You Remove Moles or Skin Tags? 

    If the mole or skin tag is not causing you any discomfort, you need not do anything about it. Sometimes, skin tags get enmeshed in jewelry or clothing causing pain and irritation of the skin. In such situations, or if you feel the skin tag mars your appearance, you may choose skin tag removal surgery. 

    Moles that have remained unchanged do not need removal. If you find a particular mole has changed in size, shape or color compared to the others, have it examined by a doctor. If necessary, the surgeon will perform a biopsy to rule out the presence of cancer.  

    How is Mole and Skin Tag Surgery Done? 

    Skin tags are generally snipped off using surgical scissors or a scalpel. Moles may be shaved off the skin. Deeper moles need to be excised out of the skin to prevent their re-growth. When a cut is made, it will require to be stitched with sutures. 

    Electro surgery involves the passing of an electric current through a wire which is then used to burn away the skin. For skin tags, the stem holding the tag is burnt away, detaching the tag. For moles, the upper skin layers are burned off. Multiple sessions may be necessary for complete mole removal. 

    Burning may be slightly painful and therefore, the doctor numbs the area with local anesthesia before the procedure. Surgeons may choose to spray or swab the mole with liquid nitrogen in super-cold condition. A small blister forms due to the freezing and this later falls off on its own, healing the skin below.  

    In case there is any bleeding, the surgeon applies some medication to stop it and bandages the area. The skin tag and mole removal procedures rarely leave any visible marks or scars. 

    Don’t Remove Moles and Skin Tags at Home 

    Cutting off skin tags with nail clippers or using mole removal pastes can be dangerous. It may cause bleeding and scarring and infections of the skin. It is best to have your moles examined by the surgeon who can then decide if it needs removal and carry out a safe procedure in their office. 

    Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian receives patients from Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and nearby areas for mole and skin tag removal.

    What is a weak chin / jaw line and what can you do about it? 

    Create a Stronger Jaw Line with Injections or Implants

    When you look at your face, do you notice a chin that looks like it is set way behind compared to the upper jaw? If yes, you have what is called a ‘retruded’ chin which is a medical term for a recessive or weak chin. In simple words, it means the thrust of your chin is not sufficient to make your jawline appear strong.  

    This condition is easy to correct using chin implant or jawline contouring surgery. Facial plastic and reconstruction surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides chin and jawline enhancement surgery to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding locations. 

    Plastic Surgery for Recessed Chin 

    A receding chin mars the facial balance, especially in the lower portion of the face. Mouth exercises are generally not very successful in correcting a weak chin and jawline because the bones and soft tissue of the area cannot be greatly altered by exercising them. Different cosmetic surgery procedures are possible to deal effectively with this condition: 

    Chin augmentation surgery or chin implant plastic surgery is the best solution. When a greater extent of augmentation is required, your surgeon may choose to perform a more elaborate procedure such as a sliding chin genioplasty. 

    Chin implants are the easiest way to improve the look of your chin and lower jawline. The cosmetic surgeon makes a tiny cut through the mouth and inserts the biocompatible implant, positions it on the lower jaw, and sutures the cut.  

    Double chin reduction procedure is used when there are deposits of submental fat. This may be done using Kybella injections or liposuction to create a stronger jawline. 

    Sliding genioplasty is an invasive form of surgery and is reserved for extreme cases of recessed chins. The procedure is elaborate and recovery will take longer than the other methods. 

    Why Undergo Chin Augmentation Surgery? 

    Chin implant surgery helps to: 

    • Improve how your face looks from the front and the side 
    • Bring harmony between the upper and lower jaws 
    • Lend greater sense of vertical balance to the face 
    • Improve the look of your smile 

    Customized Chin Augmentation 

    When you consult a facial plastic surgeon, you should discuss the possibility of customizing the procedure to give you the exact look you desire. Good surgeons always consider the needs of patients along with the practical reality of their existing anatomical features. 

    Most surgeons take multiple scans to assess your existing features and discuss the choices you have. Once the decision is made, they either use a pre-made prosthesis that matches your preference, or order a customized chin implant to fit you.  

    Chin augmentation surgery is the simplest way to give you a strong jawline. In some cases, it may be necessary to use jaw lengthening procedures, or perform a neck lift or chin liposuction or a combination of these procedures to give you the exact appearance you desire.  

    Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian receives patients from Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and nearby areas for chin and jawline enhancement surgery.

    How to Choose The Best Facial Plastic Surgeon For Your Brow Lift 

    Brow Lift 

    The single most important factor that will influence the final outcome of your brow lift surgery is the skill and experience of your surgeon. The face is aesthetically the most prominent and complex part of your body and you need a specialist for any cosmetic procedure involving the face. 

    Facial plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Eric Yavrouian provides brow lift to patients in Glendale, Pasadena, Burbank, Greater Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding locations.  

    Customized Care and Attention 

    For the success of any plastic surgery procedure, it is important for the patient to receive individualized care. The patient should ensure that they receive proper care and attention from the surgeon and their team. Much of this will be apparent within the first visit to the surgeon’s office. 

    The patient should look closely at the following: 

    • Are the plastic surgeon and other surgical staff warm and friendly? 
    • Will I receive guidance that will help me prepare appropriately for the risks and challenges associated with brow lift surgery? 
    • Are the costs of the procedure informed in a transparent way? Is the estimate all-inclusive or are there any hidden expenses? 
    • Can I talk to the surgeon on every occasion that I visit the office for my brow lift procedure?

    Desirable Qualities 

    In choosing a plastic surgeon for a forehead lift surgery, a patient should seek the following qualities in the surgeon: 

    • Easy to talk to as well as warm and caring  
    • Motivated to inform the patient thoroughly about the procedure  
    • Passionate about changing someone’s life through plastic surgery  
    • Offering personalized care and attention to each patient  
    • Ability to understand the cosmetic needs, objectives, concerns, and desires of the patient  
    • Possess an in-depth knowledge of the eye anatomy as well as facial structure 
    • Having a keen aesthetic sense with an understanding of proportion, balance, and form  
    • Utilizing advanced techniques to ensure that the brow lift surgery is minimally invasive and leaves as little scarring as possible

    Emphasis on Personalization and Innovation  

    Each person has unique facial features. Therefore, brow lift surgery produces the best outcomes when the surgeon customizes the approach to meet the unique physical and cosmetic requirements of the patient. Patients experience the highest levels of satisfaction when the surgery is tailored to create more complete and natural outcomes.  

    Plastic surgeons who place an emphasis on continually updating their expertise and knowledge through educating themselves on the most advanced surgical techniques and cutting-edge technologies usually deliver excellent outcomes for their patients.  

    The patient derives the most benefits from the use of advanced procedures which are usually more effective and are an improvement over previous techniques. Using the latest solutions makes the procedure less invasive and painful with lower risks and short healing periods. 

    Surgical Facility 

    In considering a surgical procedure, the background and certification of the surgeon are crucial factors. But the surgical facility is an equally important consideration.  

    Ideally, plastic surgery should be undertaken at a hospital or a surgical center that is accredited by the American Associations for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Centers. The operating room must maintain the best possible hygiene and safety protocols.

These surgeons have an in-depth understanding of the facial anatomy and specialize in all forms of surgical procedures for the face.  

    board certified facial plastic surgeon will typically follow the highest quality standards and best medical practices, adopt the latest surgical techniques and technologies, and pursue on-going education to update their knowledge and skills.  

    Personal Rapport  

    There should be a strong relationship based on trust and open communication between the surgeon and patient to obtain most desirable outcomes in a cosmetic surgery procedure such as forehead lift. The surgeon should be warm, compassionate, and willing to engage closely with the patient.  

    The surgeon should encourage the patient to share any concerns or doubts that they may have on any aspect of their forehead lift procedure. Surgeons who create excellent results for their patients are experts in combining their strong surgical capabilities with equally effective communication skills.  

    This combination offers the patient safe and successful surgical outcomes. When considering a surgeon for their forehead lift plastic surgery, the patient can ask themselves the following questions: 

    • When spending time with this plastic surgeon, do I feel comfortable? 
    • Am I sure that this cosmetic surgeon will recommend procedures that are suitable and safe for me? 
    • Do I feel comfortable asking questions or expressing concerns to this surgeon? 
    • Will I be able to freely disclose my complete medical history and lifestyle habits to this surgeon? (This aspect is crucial for the patient’s safety).
