Chin and Cheek Implants
Northern Virginia, Maryland & Washington, DC

The Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery located in Reston, Virginia, specializes in facial surgery, including facelift, brow lift, rhinoplasty and neck sculpting for Northern Virginia, Maryland & Washington, DC.

Well-defined facial features have long been considered highly desirable and have become synonymous with attractiveness and beauty. In particular, prominent cheek bones and a strong chin provide definition and balance to your face, enhancing your other facial features. If you would like to improve these facial attributes, chin and cheek implants may be an excellent option to accomplish your aesthetic goals.

At the Austin-Weston Center for Cosmetic Surgery, our experienced plastic surgeons can perform chin and cheek implant procedures to improve the symmetry and contours of your face, adding fullness and definition to these regions. Your procedure will rejuvenate your facial profile and give you a more youthful appearance.

Am I a Candidate for Chin and Cheek Implants

Chin and cheek implants are an excellent option if you wish to:

  • Extend or enlarge your chin
  • Create better definition in the profile of your jaw, chin, or cheeks
  • Bring your facial features into proportion with one another
  • Round out hollow cheeks
  • Accent your upper cheeks to make them appear higher and fuller

Ideal candidates for chin and cheek implants are in good physical health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure. Often, our Washington, D.C. plastic surgeons will recommend a facelift or rhinoplasty in conjunction with your facial implants in order to provide enhanced results.

The Chin and Cheek Implant Procedure

Chin and cheek implant procedures are generally performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia. Chin implants generally take about 30 minutes to complete and cheek implants will usually take about an hour.

Your chin implant will be placed through the lower lip or under your chin. Since your implants are placed internally, there will be no visible scars. Cheek implants will be placed through your upper lip or lower eyelid.

After surgery, you may experience mild to moderate discomfort for 2-7 days, but this can be controlled with pain medication. Your swelling will subside within 1-2 weeks for chin implants and 2-3 weeks for cheek implants. You can generally return to work within a week, and normal exercise can be resumed after two weeks.
