Chin and cheek implants enable you to enhance specific facial features, achieving proportions that look fuller, more youthful, and more radiant. These cosmetic procedures may be performed together to restructure your cheek, chin, and jaw, or they may be performed individually to achieve a singular desired effect.

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. Dr. Salamah and Dr. Saba both offer world-class cheek and chin implant surgery in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and Evansville/Newburgh, Indiana, and they can help you to achieve the look you’ve been dreaming of.

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.

Chin Implants Surgery

You may be a good candidate for chin implant surgery, or mentoplasty, if you’re unhappy with the appearance of your chin in relation to the rest of your face. This type of facial contouring can help to bring balance to a weak or receding chin, and it’s sometimes performed alongside a rhinoplasty or facelift. In addition, some patients will choose to have liposuction or a neck lift surgery to help achieve a more defined jaw, as the removal of excess fat can help to make the chin appear sharper and more contoured.

For this procedure, the surgeon will use a local anesthetic to numb the area before making a small incision beneath the chin in a preexisting skin crease. The implant is then inserted into the chin to promote a sharper, more prominent appearance. The difference is instantly noticeable.

Cheek and Chin Implant Surgery FAQ

How long does cheek and chin implant surgery take?

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.

How long is the recovery time?

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.

Cheek implants vs filler — which is better?

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.
