Balance in the face comes from prominent chins and cheeks. Here’s how the surgery is performed. Your doctor inserts the implants through your natural crease lines, or through inside the mouth. The implants are made from non-toxic, hypoallergenic materials such as silicone or polyethylene. Once implants are in position, the surgeon will close the incision(s) with tiny sutures. This is an outpatient procedure, and you can expect mild discomfort for about one week.
Are you wondering if you might be a good candidate for chin or cheek implants? You may be if you want to correct facial asymmetries, or a congenital defect. The procedure is also recommended for patients who are getting a nose job (rhinoplasty), and those over age 38 who want to postpone sagging in the face.
