What Are Cheek and Chin Implants?
Cheek and chin implants, or facial implants, are made of safe, biocompatible materials and are used to surgically augment areas in the face that lack definition or fullness. Most commonly, these areas are the cheekbones and the chin. Cheek implants add fullness and definition to the midsection, creating tighter, smoother skin and a more sculpted facial contour. Chin implants are used to sculpt a firm, tight jawline, smooth the skin or the lower face, and increase volume and fullness in a chin that may be underdeveloped in relation to the other facial features.
Why Consider Cheek or Chin Implants?
Aging and sun damage take a grim toll on the facial features and skin. Cheek and chin augmentation with implants rejuvenate the facial appearance by improving balance and proportion in the face, smoothing skin, and increasing contour and definition. When the cheeks are flat, or the chin is not in harmony with the other facial features, the entire face looks unbalanced, aged, and tired. Cheek and chin augmentation enhance the facial appearance by harmonizing the facial features and revitalizing the skin’s tone and texture.
Can I Combine Cheek and Chin Implants With Other Procedures?
Yes! Many of our patients choose to combine cheek or chin augmentation with such surgical procedures as a brow lift, blepharoplasty, or neck lift, or with dermal fillers to produce results that look more sculpted.
How Should I Prepare For Cheek Or Chin Implants?
During your initial consultation, Dr. Mang will go over your medical history, condition, and list of current medications. You may have to suspend use of certain medications to prepare for surgery, and avoid such irritants as smoking and alcoholic beverages in order to prepare and recover optimally. Dr. Mang also recommends arnica, a natural homeopathic remedy that can be used before and after the procedure to assist the healing process. Plan to have someone drive you home after surgery and help you around the house for a few days so you can rest and recover fully after the procedure.
What Can I Expect After Cheek And Chin Implants?
You will need to take about a week to rest fully and limit yourself to gentle activity for a period of about six weeks.
Depending on the treatment area, men may have to postpone shaving facial hair during this recovery period to avoid irritating the healing tissue. Certain facial movements such as smiling, chewing, or talking may cause soreness or discomfort as a result of swelling that is typical following treatment.
You can address pain and soreness by taking medication and sticking to a diet of soft food for the first few days to protect the treatment area. While you may return to work after one week, you should slowly and gradually resume normal physical activity over a period of six weeks, after which you will be fully recovered and able to appreciate the full results of your augmentation procedure.
