Very often it is necessary to recommend surgery for a receding chin either in connection with a rhinoplasty, facelift, cervicofacial liposuction, or as an isolated procedure. This is the case because Dr. Velargo does not consider the chin as an isolated structure but rather as an important harmonizing component of the face. During your consultation with Dr. Velargo, your chin will be analyzed to determine if augmentation should be considered.

read more › Cheek dimples, when smiling, have long been considered a "cute" and youthful characteristic in many cultures. They are naturally formed by a dehiscence (small defect) in a cheek muscle known as the buccinator muscle; however, not all people have this trait. Dimple creation surgery is performed in Dr. Velargo's clinic procedure room under local anesthetic. Dr. Velargo and his patient select the ideal place for the dimple prior to commencing the procedure. Next, Dr. Velargo creates a small controlled defect in the cheek muscle and sutures the soft tissue of the cheek into the defect using absorbable sutures in order to create the dimple.
