You have a variety of different kinds of chin implants and cheek implants to choose from, as they come in an assortment of sizes and shapes. The implants are made of a soft solid silicone material.
Before and After Surgery
You can expect your chin implant or cheek implant (or both), to be performed as an outpatient, meaning you will go home the same day as the procedure. Most patients are put under general anesthesia. However, some patients choose to stay awake and use a local anesthesia and a sedative. This decision is something you and Dr. Tavoussi will need to discuss when you visit him at OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique. The procedure(s) take(s) approximately 30 minutes to one hour.
Complications are generally rare, but you will want to have a thermometer to check your temperature: if it reaches 100 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, call Dr. Tavoussi immediately or have someone drive you to the emergency room, as a fever after surgery is often an indicator of an infection.
Dr. Tavoussi, a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, can surgically perform chin implants and cheek implants with minimal facial scarring. A consultation with Dr. Tavoussi at the OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in Newport Beach and Orange County will allow you to see before and after photos of patients who have had the same procedures performed. Dr. Tavoussi will help you determine the best personalized solution for your needs.
