Men and women often become dissatisfied with the appearance of their face as they age, which can leave many unsatisfied with how it looks. Luckily, there are surgical and non-invasive facial contouring procedures available to them that can restore a more balanced look to their visage.
Chin implants and cheek implants can give your facial structure an added chiseled aesthetic, while injectable fillers and CoolSculpting offer additional options for facial contouring.
Many men and women are unhappy with the shape of their nose. Perhaps it is too wide, crooked or mismatched with other features of their face – either of these issues could prompt someone to pursue rhinoplasty surgery as a solution to correct facial proportions and restore balance to their appearance. A talented cosmetic surgeon can sculpt your nose so it complements other features while looking natural – helping you look your best while looking natural yourself!
New York plastic surgeons may advise those seeking subtler modifications of their nose shape to undergo our non-invasive nose enhancement procedure using dermal fillers. Our talented cosmetic surgeon can smooth nasal bumps, correct asymmetry and lift an drooping tip without making an incision in any place on your nose!
At a contouring session, your doctor will begin by applying cream to create a foundation at least three to four shades darker than your skin tone, creating defined lines on your nose and contour and making them look symmetrical. After this step is completed, powder will be applied for a smooth finish – when done right this technique could give you the nose of your dreams! To ensure long-term results are obtained it’s essential to visit an experienced and qualified plastic surgeon.
Chin implants offer men and women with weak or receding chins a powerful way to restore facial harmony. This surgical process entails inserting an implant constructed of synthetic materials designed to blend seamlessly into surrounding tissues for a natural-looking outcome. There is a wide selection of sizes and shapes available so they can fit virtually any facial configuration.
Chin augmentation follows a similar procedure to that for cheek implants: an incision must first be made either inside the mouth or beneath the skin to expose and release tissue around the chin bone, before creating a pocket for placing an implant designed specifically to meet patient’s facial dimensions. Once secured in place, this incision must then be closed using fine sutures.
Along with chin implants, patients may also benefit from jaw reshaping (mentoplasty). A surgeon uses various tools to change the shape of jaw and chin; such as dental instruments to cut chin bone or liposuction to remove extra fat deposits in certain areas. Following surgery, patients typically experience swelling, numbness and temporary soreness of chin and lower teeth and need to rest from strenuous activity for at least two weeks afterwards.
Typically performed for patients who suffer from a “double chin” or turkey neck. Fat deposits in the neck and jowls can have an unsightly impact on one’s face, often impossible to address through diet and exercise alone. Utilizing neck liposuction combined with chin reduction techniques allows us to address both issues simultaneously; creating a slimmer jawline and more defined neck area.
As an outpatient procedure, chin surgery can be completed using either general or local anesthesia. Before your procedure, we’ll discuss your goals to make sure they align with our expert medical knowledge. In addition, we will outline all benefits and risks of facial contouring so you can decide whether this option is the best fit. To get started today and schedule your consultation! Contact us!
Kybella is an FDA-approved injection designed to effectively and safely reduce chin fat and redefine its jawline. Utilizing deoxycholic acid – a naturally-occurring compound found in foods which helps break down and absorb dietary fat – Kybella gradually decreases fat cells below your chin while our lymphatic and circulatory systems clear dissolved cells away naturally, leaving lasting results with more defined jawlines and facial contours.
Kybella treatment is ideal for individuals who have moderate to severe fat under their chin. Additionally, it may be combined with non-invasive treatments like dermal fillers and skin tightening lasers in order to achieve desired contours. In certain instances, we may “debulk” the area first through CoolSculpting so as to maximize success of Kybella treatments.
If you are considering Kybella as an option for chin or neck contouring, please schedule an initial consultation at our practice with Dr Sibel. He can assess your goals and determine whether this treatment is the appropriate course. Bring photos of your chin and jawline as this can help him identify an ideal chin profile profile.
Kybella treatment sessions usually last under 30 minutes, with your physician administering injections directly into targeted areas. Numbing cream or ice can be applied beforehand to minimize discomfort.
Swelling, bruising and mild pain following injection treatments is often experienced. Swelling usually lasts 2-4 days but will eventually fade with time. Most patients require multiple sessions spaced out over one to four months in order to see lasting results.
Dr. Sibel and his staff are industry leaders when it comes to non-invasive body sculpting, offering clients with stubborn fat pockets that resist diet or exercise an effective solution. Utilizing techniques including Kybella for facial contouring purposes, Dr. Sibel and his staff work to help contour chin and jawlines for patients facing this aesthetic concern.
Though some patients may fear Kybella will make their jowls look larger, Dr. Sibel was chosen by Kythera (the maker of Kybella) to train other health care providers on its use safely and effectively for submental fullness reduction and creating contoured jawlines. With his comprehensive understanding of facial anatomy and surgical training – as well as customized plans tailored specifically to each patient – Dr. Sibel ensures each treatment plan can achieve aesthetic goals efficiently.
CoolSculpting is a noninvasive fat reduction procedure that permanently destroys unwanted cells to achieve more contoured faces and bodies. Utilizing cryolipolysis technology, CoolSculpting freezes fat cells without harming surrounding tissues such as skin and muscle; they’re then naturally eliminated by your body as waste products.
CoolSculpting is an effective solution for people at or near their ideal weight who still struggle with stubborn pockets of fat. Liposuction may also provide body contouring benefits; however, its process involves surgery and incisions making it more invasive than CoolSculpting.
CoolSculpting offers patients looking for slimmer jawlines and necks the opportunity to achieve this aesthetic transformation without surgery. Your aesthetic provider will place a gel pad over the area that needs shaping before applying controlled cooling with their CoolSculpting applicator over 35 to 75 minutes – you may feel suctioning sensations during this process; that is perfectly normal! It just means the device is doing its job!
After treatment, most people resume their regular daily activities without experiencing side effects of CoolSculpting; some may experience mild redness, tingling or tenderness that will typically go away within several weeks. Full results usually become visible three months post treatment.
CoolSculpting has proven itself an effective solution to address double chins. Excess fat accumulation under the chin can give people the appearance of being overweight regardless of their actual weight; to address this challenge without resorting to diet and exercise alone. CoolSculpting offers an effective facial contouring tool.
CoolSculpting can also help diminish the appearance of double chins by shaping upper and lower abdomen, love handles, inner and outer thighs, back fat and even gynecomastia (enlarged men’s breasts or “man boobs”). As this treatment is noninvasive, safe and permanent it makes for a great option for patients not yet ready for liposuction – for best results schedule a series of treatment sessions to see results quickly.
