    A Guide to the Chin and Cheek Implant Procedure

    Last updated 1 year ago

    When it comes to plastic surgery, the term “implants” tends to make us think of the implant used during breast augmentation procedures. However, implants may be also used to augment other areas of the body as well. Learn more by reading the following guide to the chin and cheek implant procedures. 

    Chin Implants

    Chin implants may be right for you if your chinbone does not sufficiently protrude past the jawline but rather blends into your neck, ultimately interfering with the balance and symmetry of your facial structure and creating the appearance of a weak chin. During the chin implant surgical procedure, your cosmetic surgeon will administer anesthesia before a small incision is made inside of your lower lip below the gum line, creating a pocket along the forward edge of the chin. A medical grade silicone implant will then be placed into the pocket before the incision is closed with absorbable sutures. The use of an inner-lip incision allows the surgical scar to remain easily concealed after the healing process is complete.

    Cheek Implants

    Cheek implants are often recommended for individuals whose cheeks are flat due to a congenital deformity, injury, or volume-loss caused by the natural aging process. As with the chin implant procedure, your surgeon will administer anesthesia before making an incision along the inside of the cheek above the upper gingival tissues. After forming a pocket in the deficient area, trial implants will be placed to prepare the skin and help your face adjust to the new contours. A solid silicone implant will be inserted later and the incisions closed with dissolvable stitches.

    Whether you are interested in chin implants, cheek implants, or a facelift, leading plastic surgeon Dr. R. Scott Yarish, M.D. is here to help. Get on the road to your ideal image by calling our Houston, Texas office at (713) 469-3449 today! You can also set up your initial consultation with Dr. Yarish by visiting us online.

    Tips for Recovering After Your Facelift

    Last updated 1 year ago

    Facelifts, also known as rhytidectomy procedures, are commonly performed to reduce visible signs of aging in the face—including mid-facial sagging, creases below the eyelids, deep nasal labial lines, displaced fat, and excess or loose skin. In some cases, facelift procedures may also be used to eliminate excess skin under the chin that gives the appearance of jowls.  Make sure you achieve the postoperative results you desire by following the facelift recovery tips discussed here. 

    Keep Surgical Dressings Intact

    Your face will be wrapped in a sterile dressing immediately after undergoing a facelift. While these bandages may itch slightly as your skin heals, it is important to keep the dressings intact until removed by your cosmetic surgeon as they are designed to reduce swelling and help your skin adjust to your new facial contours.

    Use a Cold Compress

    Your cosmetic surgeon will usually prescribe anti-inflammatory medications to reduce swelling and discomfort in the days after your surgery. In the event the discomfort persists, you may consider placing a cold compress or ice pack up against the bandages at intervals of 10-to-15 minutes.

    Get Plenty of Rest

    You will want to avoid strenuous exercise until given medical clearance from your surgeon. You can expedite the healing process further by staying off of your feet and keeping your head elevated as much as possible.

    Drink Plenty of Water

    Keeping your body hydrated after undergoing a face lift is helpful because it can help reduce swelling and remove any residual anesthesia from your system.

    Visit Your Surgeon

    One of the most important things to do to ensure successful results following a facelift is to visit your surgeon for all follow-up appointments. This will give you the chance to ensure you are healing properly and ask any additional questions.
