Cheek and Chin Implant Guide

By:   |   Jul 08, 2018   |   Views: 40   |   Comments: 0

Permanent chin and cheek implants are made from silicone and are surgically inserted through a small incision, which is closed with stitches.  They can improve symmetry between the right and left cheek and can make the chin more prominent to improve facial proportions.  The chin gives balance to the face and aids in defining the profile.  This type of cosmetic surgery is frequently performed and provides excellent results.

Chin and cheek implants are relatively short procedures, as they each take from 30 minutes to 2 hours, and can be done in conjunction with each other or with other facial cosmetic procedures.  The surgery is performed in an outpatient facility, and either local or general anesthesia may be used.  Small incisions are made to create pockets in the skin.  The chin and cheek implants are then surgically inserted into these pockets and small sutures close up the incisions.  If the incisions are inside the mouth, the sutures are usually designed to dissolve.  Incisions in the skin require a five to seven day waiting period before they are removed.

Temporary discomfort can occur during the recovery period, as well as some swelling, stiffness, bruising, or numbness.  Rare risks include infection, shifting of the implant, or hardening of the scar tissue around the implant.  Most of these side-effects can be reduced or eliminated by following the care instructions given you by your board certified plastic surgeon. These post-operative instructions after receiving chin and cheek implants will include limitations on your activities as well as dietary restrictions.  By following your doctor's instructions, you will soon be back at work with your newly young face making an excellent impression on those around you.
