Chin & Cheek Augmentation

Cheek Implant Malar Augmentation

Description

Cheek implants are an effective method towards enhancing the shape, contour, and balance of a persons face; providing a new sense of symmetry. This can be done in a variety of ways, using synthetic materials like Alloderm, silicone, or Gore-tex. For a youthful, healthy-looking appearance, cheek implants may also be created through the use of fat injections. This procedure can improve a sunken or tired look.

Length

About 60 to 90 minutes.

Side Effects

Temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, tightness of skin, and restriction of chewing.

Recovery

Dietary restrictions and activity limitations depend on whether another procedure was performed with your surgery. The ability to move your mouth and lips may be diminished temporarily. Recovery time should average about 1 to 2 months. Return to work: 1 to 2 weeks after surgery.

Risks

Possibility of infection (which may require cheek implant replacement) and improper placement (possibly leading to repositioning through a second operation), hematoma, numbness from nerve damage.

Results

Cheek implants are permanent, depends on the material used and whether a revision is necessary.

Technology

If cheek augmentation is performed with other cosmetic procedures, such as a facelift, forehead lift, or eyelid surgery, the implants may be inserted through the same incisions.

Chin Augmentation (“Mentoplasty”)

Reshapes the chin by inserting an implant or performing reduction surgery on the bone. Chin augmentation is often done in connection with a nose job (rhinoplasty) or a full face lift. Implants may include solid silicone, bone or fat from the patients body.

Length

A half hour to about 2 hours, depending on individual circumstances.

Side Effects

Difficulty talking and smiling for several days after surgery. If you have intra-oral sutures, a patient may be placed on a liquid diet for several days.

Recovery

If a patient has intra-oral sutures, he or she may be placed on a liquid diet for several days. Patients can usually go back to work within a week and resume workouts after about 2 weeks.

Risks

Possible bleeding, infection, facial numbness or reaction to anesthesia.

Results

Permanent, but results may require several months to become fully visible. Bone and fat implants can possibly be reabsorbed into the body.
