Introduction to Cheek and Chin Surgery
Cheek and chin implants in Plano are a great way to enhance a facial profile, improving the overall proportion and balance of the face. With chin implants, we correct the symmetry of the face. Cheek implants, also known as malar augmentation, can add fullness and definition to the face. By utilizing permanent chin or cheek implants we can produce a rejuvenated, youthful facial profile.
What Are Cheek and Chin Implants?
Cheek and chin implants come in various shapes and sizes. They are made out of both solid and semi-solid materials that have been used for years with outstanding success. At the American Institute For Plastic Surgery, only FDA-approved implants are used to ensure the quality of the material.
Adding implants to your cheeks and/or chin enhances your features to achieve a more proportioned appearance. If you’re considering cheek or chin implants, or looking for more information make sure you consult a plastic surgeon who is board certified and specially trained in cheek or chin implant procedures.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Ideal candidates for cheek and chin implants are individuals in good overall health. Patients who want to add more volume to sagging cheeks or a poorly defined chin may be recommended to undergo cheek and chin enhancement procedures. If you want to create improved facial balance, you may get implants to achieve your desired results.
The initial consultation will involve a thorough discussion of your goals and concerns. A physical assessment of your cheeks, chin, and other facial features will be performed. Your medical history will be reviewed to evaluate any risk factors. An individualized surgical plan will be created to attain your cosmetic goals.
Chin and Cheek Implants: The Procedure
If cheek implant surgery is performed by itself, incisions are either made at the top of the upper lip, near the gum line, or on the outer cheek, below the lower eyelid. The implant is then inserted through these incisions into a pocket the surgeon will create in the tissue. In some cases, the implant may be attached to the bone with a small screw. The implants are placed on or below the cheekbones and the incisions are closed with sutures that the body absorbs.
Recovery and Healing
After your chin or cheek enhancement surgery, you will need to allot a short recovery period for recuperation. A week off from work may be enough depending on your body’s natural healing ability.
Swelling and bruising are normally experienced, but these will disappear after a few days. Strenuous activities should be avoided for a week or two. Avoid the incision sites when brushing your teeth to ensure that the incisions heal completely.
Cost of Cheek and Chin Implants
The cost of cheek and chin implants varies from patient to patient due to our client-centered approach. The overall price may be affected by anesthetic fees, the type and size of implant used, and various other surgical fees.
