Laguna Hills individuals who feel that their faces lack definition or artistry have several options to consider. One great option is a Laguna Hills Chin and Cheek Implant. Dr. Tavoussi is a skilled double-board certified physician with over 20 years of experience in cosmetic procedures. His desire is to give patients the confidence that they need in their faces and bodies.
A Laguna Beach Cheek implant can be used to accentuate the cheekbones, creating a more defined facial structure. The implants are typically placed deep beneath the skin and subcutaneous tissue of the face and put directly on the cheekbone. Cheek implants are placed through a small incision inside the mouth.
On the other hand, Laguna Beach Chin implants can be placed through an incision made inside the mouth on the lower lip or through an incision underneath the chin. Of course, the inner mouth incisions are typically preferred because they leave no visible scars. The implants used may be basic shapes, or some may be custom modeled for an individual.
While Dr. Tavoussi practices at the OC Cosmetic Surgery Clinique in Newport Beach, he performs his cosmetic surgery procedures at the Pacifica Outpatient Surgery Center north of our office. The surgery center serves Laguna Hills patients throughout the Orange County area and has an amazing reputation for surgical success and safety. The anesthesiologists on staff have years of experience and local hospital privileges should anything happen during surgery. Pacifica also staffs numerous registered nurses in both the operating rooms and the post-operative recovery rooms.
Patients will be at the surgery center for a few hours. A Laguna Hills chin implant takes 30 minutes, and Laguna Hills cheek implants usually take an hour. Patients will be allowed to awaken and will recover briefly here before discharged home the same day. Dr. Tavoussi will write a medication prescription to control pain around the surgical sites and will also write post-operative instructions for patients. Patients will be instructed to keep the head elevated and to apply cold compresses to decrease swelling. They will also need to treat any incisions with care, especially when cleansing the face. However, many times, incisions are hidden inside the mouth to avoid lasting scars.
