Chin & Cheek Augmentation FAQs

How does chin and cheek augmentation work?

Chin and cheek augmentation rely on the placement of implants to enhance the facial features. These implants comprise biocompatible materials like silicone and are customized to fit the patient’s needs. Dr. Fahradyan makes discreet incisions, often inside the mouth or along natural creases of the chin, to minimize visible scarring.

For chin augmentation, the implant is positioned in front of the chin bone and secured in place, while cheek augmentation involves placing implants directly on the cheekbones. These implants augment the underlying skeletal structure, adding volume and definition to the chin and cheeks. Over time, the body naturally forms a thin layer of tissue around the implants, integrating them with the surrounding tissues. This creates a more harmonious and balanced facial appearance, addressing concerns such as weak chin, flat cheekbones, and asymmetry.

What is the recovery time for chin and cheek augmentation?

Recovery times can vary, but most patients expect initial swelling and discomfort to subside within 1-2 weeks. However, complete recovery and settling of implants may take a few months.

Can I combine chin and cheek augmentation with other cosmetic procedures?

Yes, it’s common to combine these procedures with other surgeries like rhinoplasty or lip augmentation for a comprehensive facial enhancement.

Will there be visible scars after chin and cheek augmentation?

The incisions are placed in discreet locations under the chin, along natural creases, or inside the mouth to minimize visible scarring.
