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. Klausner is hands down the best! She performed a sinus surgery and straightened my septum in 2017 and I could not be happier with the result. Dr. Klausner truly listens to her patients and provides expert guidance and thorough explanations for her recommended approach. When I saw her the day following my surgery she gave me a gentle face wash all around the area and I could've cried it felt so nice. Her follow up with me was impeccable. She took great care of me through my entire recovery journey. Can not recommend Dr. Klausner enough!!"- A. / Google / Feb 25, 2022

"I met with Dr. Klausner to have a large cyst removed from the bridge of my nose in between my eyes. It had become infected and was very painful. My local ER doctor had sliced it open to drain it and I was left with a big gaping wound on my face. Needless to say, I was distraught and very self-conscious. Dr. Klausner was incredible. She inspected the prior doctor’s work and made a few careful incisions to further drain the cyst. It was clear that it was something that had been under the surface for quite a number of years and Dr. Klausner was very thorough in her inquiry and considered all possible causes. Our first consultation lasted for almost two hours. Because of the location of the cyst, she sent me to have an MRI to ensure that it was not connected to any of the bone. When the infection subsided and it was ready to be removed, Dr. Klausner patiently and carefully excised the whole thing. She has also scheduled several follow-up appointments with me to check on how I am healing. I do have a small scar, which was expected, but it it’s getting flatter and less noticeable every day. I cannot speak highly enough about my experience with Dr. Klausner. Highly recommend."- E.R. / Google / Jan 01, 2022
"So grateful that I found Dr. Klausner. She is an amazig doctor and person. After going to numerous doctors/surgeons for my large nasal perforation and saddling she was the only one who listened and diagnosed my problem. She gave me a detailed plan on how to proceed. She was very empathetic, kind and patient through the entire process. My surgery was extremely complicated but I'm happy to report a success! No other surgeon wanted to help me as they all said it was not possible to close such a large perforation. Dr. Klausner did it!!! She has truly changed my life!"- T.R. / Google / Nov 02, 2021
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.

Cheek and chin augmentation FAQs
Should I get dermal fillers or implants?
It depends on your cosmetic goals. If you want to look younger or more attractive without surgery, fillers may be a good choice. However, dermal fillers are temporary and need to be redone every few months or a year. Implants at the Klausner Institute provide a more long-lasting solution for balancing your facial features.
Will my results look natural?
Cheek and chin implants may feel tight as the implants settle into their position. This is a normal and temporary part of recovery. Implants can add projection, definition, and enhancement to sunken areas. Dr. Klausner does her best to provide successful results that look gorgeous and natural!
Will cheek and chin augmentation leave noticeable scarring?
The incisions we make during surgery are small and often placed inside the mouth, which means patients can expect little to no visible scarring. Our team also does everything we can to make the procedure as minimally invasive as possible. This reduces your time in recovery so you can return to your activities as normal in New York.
