Chin augmentation comes in two main forms: a chin implant or chin filler. Depending on your individual anatomy, preferences, and goals, one may benefit you more than the other. In a consultation, Dr. Craig Jonov at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery can evaluate you and your goals to aid you in determining the best Bellevue chin augmentation option for you.
During chin implant surgery, Dr. Jonov will place an implant into the chin to create a more prominent and well shaped chin. The implants are typically made of silicone and are sized to compliment your natural facial features. This option is often preferred by patients who have a recessed chin or who need a modification that filler cannot provide. For some patients who continually seek filler, this may offer them a longer lasting solution.
Chin filler has many uses. It can filler in wrinkles, unwanted dimples, or provide subtle augmentation to even out the facial profile. When used for chin augmentation, filler is injected to increase the projection of the chin. This can lead to a more symmetrical appearance and a facial transformation that is not immediately noticeable.

Dermal fillers like Restylane and Juvederm are the most popular way to plump the lips. The filler has few risks or side effects and often looks and feels natural. Lip fillers also have an easy reversal option and patients can choose to not refresh their filler. This makes it one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures.
Are fillers the only lip augmentation option? The short answer is no. There are other surgical and non-surgical options that can enhance the appearance of your lips. Starting with the non-surgical lip enhancements other than fillers, BOTOX injections can be used to bring out more of the upper lip to treat the appearance of thinness. This treatment–known as a BOTOX lip flip–does not usually affect the bottom lip.
Many regular filler patients tire of routine injections and want to find a more permanent lip augmentation option. For these patients, silicone lip implants can sometimes provide lower maintenance lip augmentation. Lip implants require a larger amount of commitment because the removal process is not as seamless as fillers. For some patients who regularly have fillers or who require larger scale corrections, lip implants may be an option that saves money in the long run. Fat transfer to the lips is another surgical option that can last longer than dermal fillers.

Permanent hair removal is one of the most sought after esthetic procedures. It comes with many benefits including allowing for the discontinuation of shaving and can save money in the long run. There are many long term or permanent hair removal options available. However, laser hair removal is probably the best known option.
Many people wonder: is laser hair removal effective? Fortunately, the answer is yes! Laser hair removal is one of the most effective options for permanent hair removal. It usually requires at least four sessions to see long lasting or permanent results. Throughout the sessions, laser hair removal works to deactivate hair follicles. In turn, this prevents future hair from growing.
Every person will see a slightly different level of efficacy from laser hair removal. In general, most people see long lasting, if not permanent cessation of hair growth. Our master estheticians can evaluate your hair growth and determine the best laser hair removal protocol for you.
Laser hair removal is also effective in most body areas. At The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, we offer laser hair removal for areas, such as, the chin, legs, bikini, upper lip, armpit, and many more possible treatment areas.
To find out more about if laser hair removal is an option for you, call 425-775-3561 or contact us online to set up a consultation with one of our Bellevue master estheticians.
A nose job, or rhinoplasty plastic surgery, can correct many cosmetic concerns with the nose. For example, if a patient does not like the appearance of their dorsal bump, the wideness of their nose, or the overall shape of the nose, a surgical rhinoplasty can address these issues. A non-surgical rhinoplasty is also an option for certain concerns. However, will a rhinoplasty fix a deviated septum?
A nose job can also correct many medical and structural problems with the nose. While a full scale rhinoplasty is not always necessary to correct structural issues, these can be corrected during a routine nose job.
One of the most common structural deformities of the nose is a deviated septum. A deviated septum is when the wall separating your nasal passages is more to one side than the other. In some cases, this causes no symptoms or issues. For others though, this can cause major breathing issues and contribute to conditions like allergies and sleep apnea. So, will a rhinoplasty fix a deviated septum.
The answer is usually, yes! A septoplasty is the surgical procedure that corrects a deviated septum. Dr. Jonov can perform a septoplasty as part of a rhinoplasty procedure. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Jonov, call us at 425-775-3561 or chat with us online.
