Facial implants such as a cheek implant and chin implants can dramatically improve the look of your face by enhancing the shape, contour, and balance of a person’s face, providing a new sense of symmetry. Some individuals may desire improvement in the cheek area to correct flatness. In others a receding chin may cause an unbalanced profile and prompt correction with plastic surgery. Pittsburgh plastic surgeon, Dr. Heil* offers chin and cheek augmentation. These procedures are carried out using implants of different sizes and designs. The most common choice for cheek and chin implants is soft or semi-solid silicone gel and they do not cause any form of adverse reaction in the body. They have been in use for over 15 years and have been quite safe. They are usually inserted through small incisions in the oral cavity, and the recovery is quite rapid. In most cases these procedures can be done under local anesthesia.
