Add Volume to Your Face With Chin and Cheek Cosmetic Surgery
Dr. Martin and his medical team want you to achieve the defined face you’ve always wanted. For many patients, chin and cheek augmentation surgery gives them those desired results. Clients often opt for these procedures if they wish to restore sagging skin due to old age, or just to improve their overall look.
A strong, sculpted chin gives the appearance of attraction, confidence and balanced facial proportion. Solid silicone implants are typically placed through the inside of the mouth to improve a recessed or weak chin. This common procedure is often coupled with Rhinoplasty surgery to balance proportions of both the midface and the lower face.
Patients can expect tape over and under the chin for two to three days. Mild bruising and swelling are to be expected for about a week. In the post-operative period, patients limit exercise for the first three weeks after surgery. Lighter exercises such as treadmill walking, elliptical training or stationary cycling may be revisited once the patient is off pain medication.
Full, defined cheekbones give us a youthful and angled cheek area. Cheek augmentation is a procedure that is used to enlarge and sculpt the cheeks. This procedure is typically executed using silicone implants that are placed from inside the mouth. Fat transfers can also be an option for cheek augmentation. Temporary enhancement can also be accomplished using dermal fillers such as Voluma, which is designed to be injected onto bone and typically has a longer life than dermal fillers.
In the recovery period, patients can expect swelling and mild bruising to subside in five to seven days. Light exercises may be revisited once the patient is off pain medication.
