Facial Implants

Like genioplasty (see Chin Sculpting / Reshaping). Facial implants provide definition to the face, particularly the cheeks. This procedure is ideal for those with naturally slender faces as well as for those whose faces have become sunken due to age.

Facial implants are performed using synthetic materials (e.g. silicon) to sculpt the face and make it appear more balanced and youthful. That way, even if you can’t turn back the hands of time, you can at least turn to facial implants for a younger looking you. (For a possible alternative, see Injectable Facial Fillers)

Your Facial Implants procedure will be performed in Dr. Mona Stone‘s surgery center located in Westlake, TX. (Chin Sculpting / Reshaping). Facial implants provide definition to the face, particularly the cheeks. This procedure is ideal for those with naturally slender faces as well as for those whose faces have become sunken due to age.

How is chin augmentation surgery performed? What happens during a chin augmentation procedure?

Dr. Stone will use a small incision under the chin that hides in a natural skin crease which minimizes risks such as infection or nerve injury that can come with placing the implant from an incision inside the mouth. A pocket is created along the chin, and the implant is carefully placed in the appropriate position to augment the shape of the chin. The skin and soft tissue are then closed over the implant, and a compression dressing is applied to help prevent any complications such as fluid collection after surgery. The procedure typically takes less than an hour and is performed on an outpatient basis.

How do we prepare you for chin implant?

During your consultation, Dr. Stone will examine your facial structure, including skin texture and the underlying bone structure. She will ask about your expectations, as well as your general health and any medical conditions that could interfere with the surgery.

What is Chin Surgery Recovery like?

Immediately after surgery, your lower face will be bandaged, and the dressings are typically left intact for 48-72 hours. Dr. Stone will prescribe pain medication as needed and the stitches are typically removed in a week.

You should plan to avoid heavy exertion for the first few days and stick to a soft, non-chew diet for 2 weeks after surgery to help minimize disturbance in the chin muscle and bone.
