Procedure

Dr. Lin is a leading facial plastic surgeon providing cheek implant procedure to patients in West Covina, Inland Empire, San Gabriel Valley, Chino, Rowland Heights, Baldwin Park, Whittier, Brea, Arcadia, Pasadena, Diamond Bar, and nearby areas. Dr. Lin will usually apply IV sedation to perform check implant surgery, but if the procedure is combined with other surgeries, he may use MAC or monitored anesthesia care.

Dr. Lin will begin the cheek implant surgery by placing an invisible, intra-oral incision in the upper gum in the mouth. Through the incision, he will create a pocket where the implant can be placed. Using his advanced surgical skills and experience, Dr. Lin will ensure that the implant is positioned in the precise location to achieve the targeted aesthetic outcomes.

He will sculpt and augment the area to maintain proper balance, restore proportion, and enhance facial appearance. The synthetic cheek implant sits under the skin and provides a permanent boost to the strength and definition of the chin. Cheek augmentation cosmetic surgery can create an attractive, well-balanced look that appears totally natural.

Cheek implant surgery is usually performed as an outpatient procedure. The length of the surgery will vary according to the extent or number of procedures involved, but it generally ranges from one to two hours. Once the implant placement is completed, the implant will be sutured into place. Sutures in the mouth will dissolve in about a week to 10 days. If external sutures are placed, these will be removed in about the same time.

 

Recovery

Minor discomfort will be experienced in the first few days after the procedure, which can be managed with pain meds. Most patients can resume their regular activities in about one week. Bruising and swelling will subside in about 10 to 14 days following the surgery. Results will establish fully over several weeks as the swelling disappears completely.
