Facial Implants in Fort Worth, TX

The Center for Cosmetic Surgery offers facial implants, including cheek implants and chin implants, to residents of Fort Worth, Arlington and the surrounding communities in Texas.

What Are Facial Implants?

Facial Implants in Fort Worth, TXAn individual’s facial features can sometimes appear disproportional because the cheeks have thinned or appear sunken in, or because the chin offers a weak presence. In these cases, a customized cheek implant or chin implant can augment these areas to increase harmony among the facial features. The result is a more balanced and confident appearance, which in turn boosts self-esteem.

Cheek implants are designed to emphasize a patient’s cheeks with higher cheekbones, creating a more elegant look. They are often combined with other procedures, such as chin augmentation or a facelift, for a more thorough rejuvenation of the face.

Chin implants, also referred to as chin augmentation or mentoplasty, reconstruct the chin to present a stronger jawline and balance the upper portion of the face. Chin implants may be performed with other procedures, such as rhinoplasty, for more dramatic results.

How Are Facial Implants Performed?

Cheek augmentation involves inserting implants through small incisions inside the mouth or, if eyelid rejuvenation is also being performed, the lower eyelid. The implants are positioned over the cheekbone and held in place either by a pocket created by Dr. Lavine, or by being affixed to bone or soft tissue.

During chin surgery, an incision is made underneath the chin or inside the mouth. The implant is gently inserted and is secured either to bone or soft tissue, or with a special pocket.

What Can I Expect During Recovery from Facial Implant Surgery?

The recovery time and experience depend on the type of surgical approach used and whether other procedures are performed at the same time. For either a cheek implant or chin implant alone, recovery time is minimal; you may feel numbness in the mouth for the first day, and a soft diet is recommended for a few days.
