Patient Info

Dr. Inessa Fishman


This 54-year-old woman was bothered by a lack of definition at her jawline and unwanted fulness under her chin.  Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman treated her with an isolated deep plane neck lift, which is a surgical procedure to contour the jawline and neck and remove too-low and too-large parts of fat pads, muscles and salivary glands under the jawline.  Dr. Fishman also placed a small chin implant to give the patient’s chin more definition and projection.  The entire surgery was done in our office, with the patient awake and relaxed with by-mouth medications and laughing gas.  The patient’s only scar is hidden in the natural crease under her chin.  She is shown 1.5 months out from treatment.

About Facial Implants Procedure

Facial implants help add or restore contour to the cheeks and chin in a safe and permanent manner.  This added projection can create or highlight beautiful facial contours in both women and men, with long-lasting results that eliminate the need for maintenance and repeated filler injections.  Our facial plastic surgeon Dr. Inessa Fishman commonly places cheek implants and chin implants as a stand-alone procedure or in combination with rhinoplasty or facelifting surgery.
