Cheek and Chin Implants


Facial implant surgery, also known as cheek augmentation, aims at giving the appearance of higher and fuller cheeks on the face while adding shape and proportion through the use of implants and working on existing bone structure. Normally the facial implant procedure involves making an incision inside the mouth where the cheek joins the upper gum, This makes a pocket for the implants to be inserted into. There are times when an incision will be made under the lower eyelid. Implants are normally artificially made of silicone or polythene but is sometimes made from bone taken from your body.
