Cheek and chin implants are cosmetic surgeries that are performed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face. Chin implants can increase the size and projection of your chin, making it better match the proportions of the rest of your facial features. Cheek implants can increase the projection of your cheekbones and enhance areas of the cheek that are recessed or flat. During your cheek or chin implant surgery, personalized silicone implants will be placed in the locations you would like to enhance.
The best way to determine the answer to this question is to meet with a trusted plastic surgeon for a consultation. At CAPS, our plastic surgeons take the time to understand your unique aesthetic goals and to recommend the course of treatment that will best help you to achieve them.
During your consultation, your doctor will help you to determine if a cheek or chin implant surgery is right for you. You can expect your doctor to ask you:
Why do you want a facial implant?
What are your expectations for the procedure?
What is your desired outcome?
Do you have any medical conditions or drug allergies?
Are you currently undergoing any medical treatments?
What is your current use of medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco, and drugs?
Have you had any previous surgeries? If so, what were they?
In addition to asking these questions, your plastic surgeon will use your consultation to evaluate your general health status and any preexisting health conditions or risk factors you may have, discuss your facial implant options, examine and measure your face, take photographs for your medical record, recommend a course of treatment, discuss likely outcomes of a facial implant surgery and any risks or potential complications, and answer your questions.
Before your cheek or chin implant surgery, you may be asked to get lab testing or a medical evaluation, take certain medications or adjust your current medications, stop smoking, and avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements that may increase bleeding.
We will also give you special instructions about what to do the night before and morning of your surgery and regarding your post-operative care and follow-up appointments.
First, you’ll be administered anesthesia. Your plastic surgeon will recommend the anesthesia option that is best for you. Then, you’ll go to sleep while your skilled plastic surgeon and well-trained staff insert implants that have been specifically chosen to meet your aesthetic goals. The exact procedure will vary depending on your unique needs and desired outcomes. Your doctor can walk you through every step of the procedure during your consultation.
Your doctor will give you instructions regarding your post-operative care. Following these instructions is absolutely vital for the success of your surgery. These instructions will include ensuring that your surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, abrasion, or motion during your recovery. Your doctor will also instruct you regarding the proper care of the surgical site, the use of medications to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection, and your overall follow-up care. If you have any questions following your facial implant, whether it has been one hour since your surgery or many years, we will always be here to answer them.
The results of a facial implant surgery will be immediately noticeable and long-lasting. As you heal, your results will become defined and you’ll be able to return to your ordinary activities. Patients who receive facial implants often enjoy increased self-confidence and pride in their appearance.
