Surgeries That Enhance Facial Structure

While some facial plastic surgeries are designed to recreate a more youthful appearance, others are designed to enhance your natural beauty. The following surgeries that enhance the structure of the face can improve your natural attractiveness. Some of these procedures may be appropriate even for young patients and can create a more aesthetically pleasing and well-defined face shape.

Why Facial Structure Matters

Before and After Chin ImplantsThe structure of the face is built around the balance of all your facial features. The angle, prominence, and proportion of each feature in relation to the others determine facial attractiveness. By enhancing a feature that is deficient in some way or by minimizing an area that is overly prominent, the overall face appears more harmonious. A face that is well-balanced is generally considered to be more attractive, youthful, and likable.


Rhinoplasty candidates may feel that their noses are the most prominent and flawed feature on their face. Whether you are unhappy with the size of your nose, the shape of its tip, bumps on your nasal bridge, the width of your nostrils, or other issues, rhinoplasty can help. Rhinoplasty improves the aesthetic appearance of the nose so that it is more balanced with the rest of the face. This allows it to blend naturally rather than stand out, thereby enhancing facial structure and overall facial attractiveness. Even younger patients who are adequately prepared can undergo teenage rhinoplasty.


Otoplasty can improve facial harmony by restructuring the ears so that they are smaller, more natural in appearance, and/or lie flatter against the head. When the ears are made to be less prominent, the remaining facial features become more of a focal point. Ear surgery may be appropriate even for children as young as 6 years old.

Lip Enhancement

Lip enhancement can improve the appearance of the lips and mouth. Using fillers, reshaping, implants, or a lip lift, a surgeon can make the lips appear more prominent, shapely, and youthful. Lip enhancement may be recommended for individuals with naturally thin or flat lips or for individuals whose lips have become thinner with age. Additionally, if the lips are naturally oversized, a lip reduction can reduce their size so that they are more proportionate to the other facial features.

Facial Implants

Facial implants can have a profound impact on the appearance of the face as a whole. Where the facial skeleton is deficient, implants can be inserted to improve definition and create better angles and contours. For example, a chin implant often improves the balance of the nose and chin and alters the look of the entire face. Cheek implants, sub-malar implants, or jaw angle implants can augment these features to enhance facial structure. Since the facial bones change shape with age, facial implants can also restore more youthful facial contours.

When choosing your facial rejuvenation or enhancement treatments, consider whether you would like to enhance your facial structure by undergoing one or more of these procedures.

The Advantages of Facial Implants Over Fillers

In the plastic surgery industry, facial enhancement can be achieved through several different methods. Dermal fillers and facial implants are two of the most frequently used techniques for improving the appearance of the face. While fillers offer excellent temporary results, facial implants have several advantages that may distinguish them as a preferable treatment for facial enhancement.

Facial Implants Produce Long lasting Results

While facial fillers require repeat treatments to maintain the effects, facial implants produce long lasting results. A single surgical procedure is performed to insert the implant(s) into the desired area(s) of the face, after which the implant(s) will long lastingly augment the facial structure. Patients need not return for additional treatments but can enjoy their long lastingly enhanced appearance.

Facial Implants Provide Augmentation of the Facial Structure

Unlike fillers, which enhance the face by filling out the skin, facial implants augment the skeletal structure of the face. By addressing the underlying skeletal structure, facial implants can significantly improve the appearance and shape of the face. Additionally, it is only with facial implants that a weak chin, ill-defined cheeks, or other related issues can be resolved.

Before and After Facial ImplantsFacial Implants Establish Balance Between the Facial Features

For some individuals, the facial features appear out of balance. A common example is a receding chin with a prominent nose. Facial implants can establish balance between the facial features by bringing them into proper alignment with each other. Inserting a chin implant, cheek implants, or jaw angle implants can augment areas that were previously weak so that the facial features are more harmonious. Many patients who desire rhinoplasty can benefit from also receiving a chin implant to sculpt a more attractive facial profile.

Facial Implants Improve Facial Definition

An attractive face is well-defined, with clear lines distinguishing the features from each other. In particular, the jawline, cheeks, and chin should all have strong angles, lines, and curves. Some individuals lack this natural facial definition or lose it as they age. Facial implants can improve facial definition and balance by creating attractive shapes and angles to highlight your facial contours.

Facial implants can long lastingly improve facial definition, structure, and balance between the facial features to create a more attractive and youthful appearance. Schedule your personal consultation with Dr. Pearlman by calling 212-223-8300 or filling out our online contact form today.
