When evaluating before and after results please pay attention to the following features of this gallery:

  • High Definition, High Resolution Images: All of our photos are presented in high quality, large, and expandable images.  We do not use small, static pictures to hide asymmetries, imperfections or scars.
  • Descriptive:  We have labeled our images with meaningful descriptions to help guide you to specific features.
  • One Result, Multiple Views:  We do not show you just the “best” views and hide the rest.
  • Similar Before & After Photographs:  We do not use any trick photography.  We encourage our patients to wear make-up in both the before and after images.   We use the same camera, the same background, the same lighting, and the same positioning for the before and afters.
  • Close-Ups of Incisions and Scars:  We do not hide our scars with small images.  Instead, we show you magnified views of how our incisions appear and where they are located.



Case #58.

Many patients have small chins due to lack of mandibular development.  A recessed chin can make the cheeks look too wide creating a rounded appearance.  This patient was treated with an implant to augment the chin creating a beautiful jawline.  The cheeks were brought in to balance and the lower third of the face was made more proportionate.

* Individual patient experiences and results may vary.

1) Chin Augmentation San Diego 91: A properly fitted chin implant can rebalance the entire face.  It can add angularity to the cheeks and reshape jaw line.

2) Chin Augmentation San Diego 92: Reshaping the chin can also create a beautiful neckline on the side and oblique views.

3) Chin Augmentation San Diego 96: By lengthening the chin the width of the cheeks is de-emphasized.  This creates a more slender height to width ratio for the entire face.

4) Chin Augmentation San Diego 94: Chin implants come in all shapes and sizes, you get to choose the one that best meets your goals.
