For centuries, well-defined facial features have been considered traits of physical beauty. Prominent cheek bones and a strong chin provide balance and definition. For those seeking these natural marks of distinction, make-up used to be the only alternative.

Now, thanks to modern technology, there is a safe, permanent method to correct a receding chin and provide those high cheekbones sought after by men and women worldwide. At Florida Cosmetic Surgery Center, our plastic surgeons perform chin augmentation, or mentoplasty, and cheek implants, or malar augmentation, for patients in the Orlando region. These surgical procedures are designed to provide a more vibrant and attractive look of distinction. These procedures can also benefit those with asymmetries or congenital defects.




Florida Cosmetic Surgery Center's OrlandoNatural Chin/Cheek Implant Procedure

Chin implants are often recommended to patients undergoing nose surgery to achieve better facial balance. In patients thirty-five to fifty-five years old, cheek implants can improve the midfacial contour and restore sagging midfacial soft tissues, thus postponing the need for a facelift. For patients receiving a facelift, cheek implants can ensure longer-lasting results.


Are Facial Implants for You?

During your initial cosmetic consultation, your plastic surgeon will assess the nature of your facial structure and discuss your concerns about your face, your expectations, and explain the probable outcome of your procedure.

We will show you several before and after photographs of patients having similar facial structure, and we will explain the treatment you can expect to receive. Before and after photos will be taken of your face to document your results.


Are Chin and Cheek Implants Safe?

Facial implants have proven to provide a safe, predictable, low-cost, low-risk cosmetic surgical procedure. To date, millions of facial implants made from non-toxic materials such as silicone, porous polyethylene and expanded polytetra-fluoroethylene (ePTFE) have been implanted, with no reported cases of allergic reaction.

The implants, designed specifically for use in the midfacial cheek area and the chin come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. These implants can be custom-trimmed by your surgeon for a more natural fit.





The OrlandoNatural Procedure

Both the OrlandoNatural™ Chin and Cheek Implantation Procedures can be performed on an outpatient basis. They can be performed using general anesthesia with the patient asleep, or using a local anesthesia to numb the treated area while the patient remains awake.

After cleansing the area, your surgeon will place small incisions either in natural crease lines or inside the mouth. The implants are placed through the incision and into position. The incisions are then closed using tiny sutures.


If you have been wondering if having more distinctive facial features might enhance your appearance and improve your self-confidence, you should schedule a consultation with our surgeon to see if the OrlandoNatural™ Cheek or Chin Implant is right for you.





How will my Face Feel after my Implants are In?

At Florida Cosmetic Surgery Center, after cheek augmentation, you can expect some discomfort, aching and some numbness along with some temporary swelling. Keeping your head elevated and applying cold compresses during the first twenty-four hours will help keep this to a minimum. Post-operative discomfort can be controlled with medication. Chewing food and brushing your teeth might be a little uncomfortable for a week to ten days.

After your surgeon performs chin augmentation, a dressing will be applied to cover the area for about three days. Post-operative discomfort can be controlled with medication. Keeping your head elevated and applying cold compresses during the first twenty-four hours will keep swelling to a minimum. A soft food diet may be required for a few days as chewing may be limited. All swelling should be gone within six weeks. External scars, if any are minimal and will fade significantly over time. Strenuous activities should be avoided for several weeks.
