Newport Beach Chin and Cheek Implants give patients in the Orange County area the chance to have the facial contours of their dreams. Some people struggle for years with flat cheekbones or receding chins that may affect the look of the neck. Rather than continuing to struggle, a simple surgical implant can be used to permanently solve these problems.
Both Newport Beach chin and cheek implants are surgeries that must be performed under general anesthesia. However, the process does not take very long. In fact, chin implants generally take half an hour, and cheek implants take about an hour. Dr. Tavoussi performs these procedures at the Pacifica Outpatient Surgery Center just north of our Newport Beach office. The surgery center has anesthesiologists and registered nurses on staff to help before, during and after the procedure. These implants are same-day surgeries that allow patients to head home within a couple hours.
At home, Newport Beach patients will want to take good care of the affected areas of the face. While there are often no incisions on the outside of the face, they will still want to be very gentle when washing the face or getting dressed. They will have some pain after surgery, which can be controlled with a prescription painkiller, and they will also have swelling, for which they can use a cold compress. In fact, the swelling is normally such that they will not be able to see the full results of the Newport Beach Chin and Cheek implants for several weeks as they wait for the swelling to decrease.
