chin plastic surgery

Chin and cheek augmentation surgeries are becoming two of the most popular plastic surgery procedures. Chin implants surgery otherwise known as mentoplasty is a procedure in which an incision is made either inside the lower lip or under the chin and a hard silicone or expanded polytetraflouroethylene (ePTFE) implant that has been specifically contoured for your face is inserted in to place. This is often done to create a more prominent chin and balance out the face.

Cheek implants also known as malar augmentation also attempt to balance all the features of the face. During the surgery incisions are made inside the mouth and the personalized implant is moved into place. Such augmentation may be performed individually or they may be combined with each other or additional plastic surgeries such as rhinoplasty or a facelift.

Both implant surgeries are usually performed under general anesthesia and require at least one night of hospital stay. Total recovery time for both is approximately six weeks. Because this is a major operation it is important to seriously consider both the pros and the cons of the procedures.

Pros

Such implants will give the face a more harmonious balanced look.

A more prominent chin or cheeks will detract attention given to the nose making the nose appear smaller.

After cheek implant operation the cheeks will no longer give off a sad and tired appearance.

The contour of the face will be redesigned.

Both procedures are virtually scarless because incisions can be hidden inside the mouth.

Chin and cheek implants make the face look youthful and full.

Cons:

A common side effect is numbness in the lower lip and cheek. The loss of sensation is usually temporary but can be permanent.

An implant can migrate out of position and in rare instances implants can even come out of the body.

There is a risk of damaging the roots of nearby teeth. Infections inside the mouth can also occur as a result of the surgery.

Because the implants are generally made of hard silicone, a material harder than natural bone, the body may either accept or reject the implant.

As most plastic surgery procedures, such augmentations are considered cosmetic and are usually not covered by insurance. Patients will need to pay for the procedure out of pocket and each procedure ranges from $1500 – $5000.
