ABOUT Cheek AND Chin Augmentation
At the Klausner Institute, cheek and chin augmentations are a way of altering and enhancing the look of your face shape. Many people wish they had more prominent cheekbones or fuller faces. Lee Ann M. Klausner, M.D. is an industry leader in performing these procedures in the Manhattan area, New York, NY. These highly precise, expert procedures typically involve small, easy-to-heal incisions in the face and the careful placement of implants beneath the skin. Overall, the goal is to bring a sense of balance, symmetry, and youthful bounce to the face.
Balancing With Chin Augmentation
The chin is often overlooked by those considering cosmetic surgery for the face, but the chin plays a significant role in facial harmony. Chin augmentation is often recommended in conjunction with rhinoplasty (nose surgery) for patients with a lack of prominence to their chin. This can create greater facial harmony, and together, chin augmentation and rhinoplasty can bring about a refreshing balance that looks both natural harmonious.
Depending on the needs of the patient, Dr. Klausner may use a Goretex or silastic implant or an injectable filler. Placement of the chin implant may be approached through a small incision under the chin or through a small incision in the mouth.

"Dr. KlausnerMD is amazing, I’m a middle age woman and I had a few procedures done with her. I wanted to look as natural as possible. Dr. Klausner took her time, and listened....given my skin complexion ( I’m prone to keloids) we worked together regarding what would be my best options. Each procedure produced gratifying results, and I still remained looking like myself. Dr. Klausner makes you feel comfortable and assured...her service is exceptional."- L.M. / Google / Mar 15, 2021

"Dr. Klausner is an amazing doctor/surgeon. She takes time with her patients, listens, makes sure she explains everything in detail, follows up quickly, and is overall amazing at what she does. Her diagnosis was beyond accurate and I didn't even notice I had breathing issues until she brought it up to me. The surgery went well, I had minimal bruising, and my follow-up appointments have been great. I'd recommend her to anybody!"- M.H. / Google / Dec 15, 2020
"Lee Ann is kind, thoughtful, empathetic and ultimately the best doctor I've ever worked with. I came to her after a 10 year search for a practitioner that could also dual as a healer for an issue I had suffered with, being a perforated septum due to a previous invasive surgery that had gotten larger over time. I had seen many ENT's throughout this search, most with doubts they could help my condition, all with little to no suggestion of ways to alleviate my discomfort. Throughout the entire process with Lee Ann my concerns were not only alleviated, but she did so thoughtfully and honestly. I was given a regiment that subdued the affects of my condition almost immediately, and over time I came to trust her ability to heal me. In July 2020 I underwent septal perforation surgery which was intense and deeply transformational. I was not aware of how much I was suffering until I came out the other side. Now I would recommend her to anyone seeking any type of reconstructive surgery, because it takes someone unique with brilliant character to hold space for your healing every step of the way. Even through the COVID19 crisis, Lee Ann gave me the most unique and heartfelt experience that has ultimately changed my life and the way I view myself. I no longer think about my past condition on an hour to hour basis, and I feel full and complete as if I hadn't been suffering for how long I had. To say I appreciate her is a great understatement. I absolutely suggest a consultation with her if you are looking for a healer in human form."- M. / Google / Dec 15, 2020
Balancing with Cheek Implants
Cheek implant surgery (submalar or malar augmentation) is used in order to gain facial balance and desirable facial definition. Much like chin augmentation, cheek implants are often used in combination with other facial cosmetic procedures to achieve an ideal balance and overall facial harmony.
Cheek implants are placed on top of the cheekbones or below, depending on individual patient needs. Incisions are often made inside the mouth. The specifics of your cheek or chin implant surgery will be discussed in further detail during your consultation with Dr. Klausner.
