Malar Augmentation | Wilmington DE

The skin over the face is analogous to a drape. The shape of the face is determined by the underlying skeletal framework. In some individuals, this framework is not as pronounced as in other individuals and they may appear to have a flattened face or small, recessed chin.

A cosmetic surgeon may be able to add facial implants to the facial skeleton to accentuate the areas of the cheek bone, chin, nose, and angle of the lower jaw. These skeletal augmentations redrape and tighten the skin of the face. This provides a more healthy and youthful appearance without the need for a more extensive skeletal lift procedure. The surgery is performed from within the mouth with no visible scars. Immediate results are evident.
