Small cheek bones can give your face a gaunt, drawn look and make the lower face look too heavy. High, strong cheek bones give your face a youthful, healthy appearance. High quality, medical grade, plastic implants are used to increase the size of the cheekbones and are fitted according to the needs of the patient.
This outpatient procedure is normally done under local anesthesia in either a hospital surgical center or the doctor's office. The implant is placed along the cheekbone area through a small incision made inside the mouth above the upper teeth so there is no visible scar.
Chin augmentation is an outpatient procedure that involves making a small cut in the natural crease line below the chin and the implant is then carefully positioned through this incision. A small Band-Aid is placed over the incision itself, and no other bandage or dressing is needed.
