As we age, our bodies begin to decrease collagen production, which can lead to facial volume loss, creating a sunken-in or deflated appearance. In other cases, accidents or even genetics can leave your chin and/or cheekbones misshapen or otherwise out of proportion with the rest of your features. For men and women seeking better-defined facial contours, facial implants for the cheeks or chin can offer excellent, natural-looking results.
If you’re unhappy with your facial volume or the balance and proportions of your face, facial implants can enhance and highlight your natural assets. Whether for cosmetic or reconstructive purposes, chin augmentation or cheek augmentation can help you to look and feel your finest.

About Facial Implants
Your face can be such a large part of your identity. When sagging skin, loss of volume or uneven features are a concern, your quality of life may suffer and you may feel self-conscious. Facial implants can restore a fuller, smoother and more contoured structure to your face. Chin implants and cheek implants can offer a more permanent solution than temporary injectable fillers.
During your initial consultation, you’ll be able to discuss your goals with one of our skilled cosmetic surgeons, who will design a surgical plan tailored to meet your unique needs. For men and women seeking to get rid of excess sagging skin, lines and wrinkles in the face and chin areas, a facelift procedure may be a better option, or, in some cases, could be combined with facial implants for optimal results.
Your Facial Implant Procedure
Getting chin or cheek implants can be done on an outpatient basis, with either local or general anesthesia. Our cosmetic surgeon will create carefully placed incisions in the appropriate areas, through which he or she can place and position your facial implants. To custom-tailor your procedure, your facial implants may be trimmed and shaped to fit the natural contours of your face, for balanced, seamless results. The entire chin or cheek augmentation surgery is typically done in under an hour.
Your Recovery & Results
After your chin or cheek augmentation surgery, some swelling, bruising or numbness is to be expected. Keeping your head elevated and applying cold compresses can help to alleviate these symptoms, which should begin to diminish within several days. During the first week to 10 days following your implant procedure, your chewing may be limited or restricted. Pre-planning your meals prior to your facial implants can be a useful preparation for a smooth, optimal recovery.
Although our cosmetic surgeons take great care to place incisions as inconspicuously as possible, some scarring may be noticeable at first. However, your scars should gradually fade over time. As swelling subsides, you’ll begin to notice your final results taking shape. Most men and women are able to enjoy their newly enhanced facial contours around 6 weeks after the procedure.
