What Are Chin & Cheek Implants?

Chin and cheek implants, also known as facial implants, are prosthetic devices designed to enhance the contours and proportions of the chin and cheeks. These implants are typically made from biocompatible materials such as silicone and are surgically placed beneath the skin to augment the underlying facial structure. Chin implants can improve the definition and projection of the chin, while cheek implants add volume and definition to the midface region. These procedures are popular among individuals seeking a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing facial profile by addressing areas of deficiency or asymmetry in the chin and cheeks.

The Benefits of Chin & Cheek Implants

Facial implants with Dr. Panossian in Pasadena, CA, offer transformative benefits for individuals seeking to enhance their facial contours and achieve a more balanced appearance. Explore the numerous advantages of these procedures below:

  • Improved Facial Harmony: Chin and cheek implants can help bring harmony to facial features by adding volume and definition to the chin and cheeks, creating a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing profile.
  • Enhanced Projection: Implants can enhance facial projection by augmenting the chin and cheeks, providing a stronger jawline and more defined cheekbones.
  • Correction of Facial Asymmetry: Implants can address facial asymmetry by adding volume to areas of deficiency, resulting in a more symmetrical and proportionate appearance.
  • Youthful Rejuvenation: Chin and cheek implants can restore lost volume and firmness associated with aging, rejuvenating the overall facial appearance and providing a more youthful look.
  • Customized Results: Implants come in various shapes and sizes, allowing for customized treatment tailored to each individual's unique facial anatomy and aesthetic goals.
  • Long-lasting Solution: Once implanted, chin and cheek implants provide a long-lasting solution for facial enhancement, offering enduring results for years to come.

Are Facial Implants Right for Me?

Chin and cheek implants may be suitable for individuals seeking to enhance their facial contours and achieve a more balanced appearance. Ideal candidates for these procedures are typically nonsmokers with no significant medical conditions, good overall health, and a positive attitude toward enhancing their appearance. Are you troubled by a weak or recessed chin, asymmetrical jawline, congenital disabilities, misshapen jaw, double chins, or sagging jowls? In that case, you may benefit from a chin implant procedure to address these concerns. Those who feel they have hollow cheeks, a thin appearance, or a desire to add volume to their face are ideal candidates for cheek implants.

Are you considering facial enhancement with chin or cheek implants in the Pasadena & Glendale, CA area? If so, the best way to determine if these procedures are right for you is through a consultation with Dr. Panossian. Consultation for facial implants is crucial, as it allows Dr. Panossian to assess candidacy and determine the implant's ideal size and shape. Assessing candidacy involves evaluating factors like dental occlusion and facial anatomy through precise measurements. Drawing from his extensive expertise in craniofacial surgery, Dr. Panossian also offers alternative techniques, such as mandibular osteotomy and sliding genioplasty, to achieve optimal outcomes.

What to Expect: The Facial Implants Procedure

Both procedures begin with the administration of local or general anesthesia to ensure your comfort through the process. For chin implants, Dr. Panossian commonly inserts them through a small incision underneath the chin or from inside the mouth. This technique aims to enhance facial harmony and achieve a more aesthetically pleasing profile. He may sometimes recommend a "natural" chin augmentation, known as genioplasty, where the chin bone is advanced forward through an incision inside the mouth and anchored in its new position. Dr. Panossian's extensive experience in craniofacial surgery allows him to perform this procedure effectively, yielding spectacular results. As for cheek implants, Dr. Panossian typically places them through an incision on the inside of the upper lip. He carefully inserts the implants into the desired position through these incisions, ensuring symmetry and natural-looking results. Careful consultation is essential to preserve facial proportions and avoid creating a wide face. Cheek implants offer a more permanent solution for those seeking long-lasting improvement in facial features, eliminating the need for frequent filler injections. Once the implants are securely in place, the incisions are closed with sutures. Both procedures generally take one to two hours, depending on the case's complexity.

Chin & Cheek Implants Recovery

Following chin or cheek implant surgery, patients typically experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort, gradually subsiding over the following weeks. Recovering from facial implant surgery is generally uncomplicated, but it requires some precautions. Patients are advised to rest and avoid strenuous activities for at least four weeks post-surgery to allow for proper healing.

We advise following a soft diet initially to prevent implant disruption during healing. Dr. Panossian will provide detailed postoperative instructions, which may include pain management techniques and cold compresses (like washcloths soaked in ice water) to reduce swelling. Attending follow-up appointments as scheduled to monitor progress and address any concerns is essential. Most patients can expect to return to work within one week, gradually returning to normal activities over the following one to two weeks. However, strenuous exercise should be avoided for several weeks. Full results of the procedure will become evident as swelling decreases, revealing a more defined and balanced facial appearance.

Will I have visible scars after my chin/cheek implant surgery?

During chin or cheek implant surgery, incisions are strategically placed to minimize visible scarring. Over time, any scars that do form tend to fade and become less noticeable, contributing to a more natural appearance.

What is the cost of chin/cheek implants?

The average cost of chin or cheek implants is between $3,000 and $7,000. However, several factors influence pricing, such as the type of implant chosen, the expertise of the performing surgeon, and the individual's overall health.

What are the risks of the chin/cheek implant procedure?

While chin augmentation is generally safe when performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, there are inherent risks, including infection, internal bleeding, implant shifting, poor scarring, or adverse reactions to anesthesia. Choosing a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, like Dr. Panossian, can minimize these risks.

How can I prepare for my chin/cheek augmentation?

Preparing for chin or cheek implant surgery involves thoroughly cleaning the skin to reduce infection risks. Patients should also abstain from alcohol for at least 48 hours before the procedure, get adequate rest, sleep early, and consume light meals the evening before surgery.

Is chin/cheek augmentation painful?

Chin or cheek implant surgery is typically performed under local or general anesthesia, ensuring a painless experience during the procedure itself. While some discomfort may be experienced afterward, it can be managed with over-the-counter painkillers and ice packs.
