Chin & Cheek Implants in Tampa, FL | Elite Facial Plastic Surgery

Chin & Cheek Implants

People looking for plastic surgery might think of facelifts, neck lifts, or rhinoplasties at first in order to improve the overall look of their facial structure. What most people do not know is that for the right patients, chin and cheek implants may be a better solution to the results that they are aiming to achieve.

Your cheeks are an important part of your face’s symmetry and definition, and your chin is a defining characteristic. That’s why billions of dollars are spent every year on make-up to define and contour our cheek bones.

Chin augmentation and cheek implants offer permanent improvements to these facial features. When you improve the contours of your face, you will instantly have a more youthful appearance and a balanced profile. Cheek implants will raise your contours, while chin augmentation will define your neckline and create that attractive angle that only a Tampa neck lift or chin augmentation can achieve.

A Tampa facelift or neck lift focuses on the skin around the affected area; whereas chin and check implants focus on creating a more defined appearance. Dr. Dominic has performed numerous cheek and chin implants over the years and has seen them change the lives of patients. For those who want similar results, but desire the non-surgical alternative to implants, Dr. Dominic also offers injectable fillers for cheeks that can be used to augment the cheeks and the chin, if desired. Since fillers are temporary, if you are on the fence about Tampa cheek or chin implants, try fillers first to see if the results are something that you would want to be permanent.

If you are still unsure if a chin augmentation or cheek implants are right for you, don’t hesitate to request a complimentary consultation online, or call the Elite Facial Plastic Surgery office at (813) 975-3223.

Benefits of Chin Augmentation & Cheek Implants

The most major difference that patients will notice after undergoing a chin augmentation or cheek implants is a more youthful and balanced profile. Because Tampa facial plastic surgery exists in collective harmony, Dr. Dominic might recommend that certain procedures are administered in tandem.

Chin augmentation will return the harmony to their lower face and create an attractive angle on their neckline. Some chin augmentations are recommended in conjunction with our Tampa facelift, neck lift, or rhinoplasty surgeries to really get the more out of the entire procedure.

Cheek implants result in defined and contoured cheeks, which reintroduce that youthful look to your face. As we age and our skin begins to droop, regaining the contoured look does wonders to revitalize your mid and lower face.

Chin & Cheek Procedure

The procedure is performed under local anesthesia in a mild sedation. Chin implants are inserted through an incision under the chin and cheek implants are inserted through an incision inside the mouth. Then, the incision is closed with dissolvable stitches. A Tampa cheek or chin augmentation procedure takes about 30 minutes to an hour. All patients receive treatment in our fully accredited, state-of-the-art Tampa facility.

Recovery

After the chin or cheek augmentation procedure, you will experience some mild swelling and bruising, which usually subsides in one to two weeks, sometime less. At this point, you can resume normal, light activities, but avoid heavy activities and contact sports for several weeks.

Chin and/or cheek implants can be used alone or in combination with other procedures. Many patients choose to have facial implants along with rhinoplasty or a Tampa facelift. For some patients, chin and/or cheek implants can alleviate the need for other facial procedures.
