The procedures themselves are simple. The plastic surgeon makes a small incision into the target area and inserts a small implant to improve the definition of the cheek or chin.

Cheek Implant Surgery
Cheek implant surgery, also known as malar augmentation, helps to highlight the cheekbones. Strong cheekbones have long been regarded as a defining feature of facial beauty, and this type of cheek contouring can provide instant enhancement to anyone hoping to achieve a more youthful appearance. That’s part of the reason why cheek implants are one of the 10 most popular plastic surgery procedures, according to data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
The implants are inserted through an incision inside the mouth and sealed with dissolvable stitches, so there’s no visible scarring. The healing time is quick, and there is only minimal discomfort during the procedure itself. This procedure can enhance the results of a face lift, or it can be done entirely on its own.

Cheek and Chin Implant Surgery FAQ
The amount of time required for the surgery will depend on the nature of the procedure. A cheek implant procedure can usually be completed in about an hour, while the chin implant procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes on average. For a lower jaw implant, you’re looking at 1 to 2 hours in most cases.
The recovery time for most facial implants is pretty quick. While it can vary depending on your personal health and whether you’re having any concurrent surgeries done, you can expect about a week of downtime in most cases. The initial bruising and swelling will last a couple of days, and you may experience some mild discomfort for a few days beyond that (as can be expected with any procedure). Just be sure to keep plenty of ice on hand as well as freezer bags, soft foods, and any ointments or creams that are recommended by your plastic surgeon. You’ll be back to your normal self in just a few days.
Fillers are good if you’re seeking a short-term, non-invasive solution. However, fillers are not permanent. If you’re looking to permanently alter the contours of your face, the cheek and chin implant surgery can actually be more affordable in the long run while providing you with more nuanced results.
