Surgery is performed at an accredited surgery center in Newport Beach, California. Under the care of a Board Certified Anesthesiologist, general anesthesia (fully asleep) is used to ensure maximal comfort and safety. The surgery lasts less than an hour; however it is often combined with a rhinoplasty procedure.

The incision is placed discretely in the crease beneath the chin and is not visible during conversation.

The procedure is well tolerated by patients. A chin support is worn for 3 days and swelling is generally mild. Jaw function and eating are not affected.

The results are long lasting provided patients adhere to an active lifestyle and weight.

The short answer is yes. When minimal contouring is required, filler is a great option to restore symmetry to the chin. For the purposes of augmentation, a large volume of filler can precipitate a downward distortion in the chin with time. This has the effect of elongating the chin and visually disrupting the lower facial balance. For a stable, predictable and long-lasting augmentation of the chin, an implant is a better option.

Botox® (or comparable neurotoxin) can be used in the chin to reduce the activity of the muscles in the chin to achieve a smoother contour. This must be performed by an experienced injector as displeasing changes in the smile and function of the lower lip can result from misplaced product.

Areas of excess fat that persist despite diet and exercise can be frustrating. The intrinsic blueprint for fat deposition and retention varies widely between individuals. Body contouring is more art than science that requires blending several procedures and techniques in order to achieve a dramatic and resilient result. Lax skin and excess fat are addressed and muscles are tightened, restoring a youthful and natural appearance to the body.

Skin health is a science that treats the skin components at a cellular level to achieve flawless complexion and texture.

Facial rejuvenation and enhancement can also be addressed non-surgically in the office setting using a wide variety of injectable products and non-invasive devices such as Botox®, fillers, laser, Renuva® and more.
