Cheek and chin implants can help create a more aesthetically pleasing facial shape.
A cheek implant can enhance facial structure by creating the appearance of prominent cheekbones. A small acrylic implant sized to fit your specific cheek is inserted just under the skin. Cheek implants can enhance your appearance and give you the profile you have always wanted. Males and females alike come to the ACPS Surgeons in Houston for the cheek implant procedure. If you are looking to improve the appearance of your face, cheek implants may be the right choice for you.
It is common for a cheek implant procedure to be done in combination with Buccal fat removal or a facelift or chin augmentation. Subtle changes to a few areas of the face can have a dramatic impact on the overall facial aesthetics.
For example, during a facelift, a patient may wish to have implants placed over the cheekbones to help restore a more lifted, youthful appearance. Implants may also be selected to fill out a face that appears “sunken in” or tired.
If you are looking to improve the overall harmony of your face and balance your profile, a chin augmentation may be an appropriate procedure for you. There are two methods for augmenting the chin, and both are performed by our award-winning plastic surgeons in Houston. It can be done with an implant or by fat transfer.
The Board Certified plastic surgeons at The Aesthetic Center for Plastic Surgery use chin implants to give a patient a stronger chin and better defined jawline. For patients that need a minor improvement to their facial profile, a fat injection is a very natural looking solution.
Chin augmentation is often performed in addition to other facial procedures, such as a rhinoplasty or neck lift. The nose and the chin are two very dominant facial features that can bring harmony to the face or be a source of unbalance which attracts attention. Patients that are concerned about a large nose often have a rhinoplasty and chin implant to make the nose a bit smaller and the chin a bit bigger. These two subtle changes can balance the features and bring harmony to the face as a whole.
Similarly, during a facelift a patient may have an implant placed on the chin to compliment neck liposuction or a necklift. The implant adds definition to the chin and separates it from the neck. This is an effective solution for patients concerned about a “double chin”
The chin implant procedure is performed in our private surgery center located in the Memorial City area of Houston, and anesthesia is administered by board-certified anesthesiologists. The surgeon will make a small incision under the chin, and insert the acrylic implant chosen by the patient and surgeon during a preoperative appointment. The length of surgery varies between 1-4 hours, depending on whether the chin augmentation is performed alone or in conjunction with another procedure.
The AqueCool Rapid Recovery System is a revolutionary technology that has been designed to enhance the recovery process of patients who have undergone facial surgery. It is a non-invasive, drug-free system that uses cold therapy to alleviate pain and swelling, promote healing, and speed up recovery.
Overall, the AqueCool Rapid Recovery System is an innovative solution that has helped many patients to recover faster and with less discomfort following facial surgery. It is a game-changer in the field of post-operative care and is becoming increasingly popular with both patients and healthcare professionals alike.
A chin implant is a surgical procedure used to augment or change the shape of a person’s chin. This is usually done through a small incision made in the mouth, allowing an implant to be placed either directly onto the chin bone or into the soft tissue of the chin area. Chin implants are used to increase the prominence of the chin or correct imbalances in facial proportions. The implant used is usually made of a solid silicone material that has been formulated to be compatible with the body and can last for many years.
Chin implants are generally considered safe when performed by a qualified plastic surgeon. The procedure involves making an incision in the crease beneath the chin and creating a pocket for the implant to be inserted into. The implant is then carefully inserted and sutured in place. Possible complications from chin implants include infection, bleeding, numbness, asymmetry, and hematoma. It is important to follow all of your doctor’s pre and post-operative instructions to minimize these risks.
Cheek and chin implants can help create a more aesthetically pleasing facial shape. For cheeks, the implant can add definition, shape, and fullness. For chins, the implant can add length, width, and definition. Depending on the implant size and type, the results can last anywhere from 10 years to a lifetime. However, as with any surgery, the results are not guaranteed.
