Mission Viejo Chin and Cheek implants are often used to improve the contours of the face, providing a more pleasing appearance for facial harmony. These implants add depth to the face, immediately creating a dramatic change. Those who are dissatisfied with the size and shape of their cheekbones or chin and who have healthy expectations may be good candidates for this surgical procedure. Chin and cheek implants can be used individually or may be placed simultaneously.
Many Mission Viejo Chin and Cheek implants can be placed in such a way that scars will not be visible. Cheek implants are placed through a small incision on the inside of the mouth, and chin implants are typically placed through an incision on the inside portion of the lower lip. However, chin implants can also be placed through an incision beneath the chin.
Mission Viejo residents who have undergone a chin or cheek implant will find that they need at least two or three days to rest and recover before returning to regular daily activities. They will be provided with prescription pain medication by the doctor and will need to keep their heads elevated to reduce inflammation. They may notice some minor bruising or bleeding. Tape may also be applied to the face to decrease swelling.
