Cheek & Chin Implants

Facial implants are specially formed solid, biocompatible materials used to enhance the physical structure of your face. The exact size and type of implants best suited for you requires an evaluation of your goals, the features you wish to correct and your surgeon’s judgment.

Cheek implants increase the projection of the cheekbones and add volume to areas which may be recessed or flat. Chin implants can improve a person’s profile by creating a proportional balance with other facial features such as the neck, lips, nose and forehead.

How long the surgery lasts depends on which part of your face is involved. Facial implants may be done on an outpatient basis or under general anesthetic for which you would need to be in hospital overnight.

  • Cheek implant: A number of procedures are available to enhance the cheekbone. These procedures are typically performed through small incisions inside the mouth in the upper jaw area. A pocket is created and the implant positioned and secured.
  • Chin implant: A chin implant is placed through an incision beneath the chin or inside the mouth behind the lower lip. Implants positioned inside the mouth will avoid a visible scar.

You will probably experience a moderate amount of pain for the first two days after surgery and some soreness inside your mouth where the stitches lie. The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons states that the most important thing to do after the operation is to treat your face and mouth gently and avoid disturbing an implant by touching or feeling it. You will need at least a week of rest before resuming normal activities.
