About Facial Implants
Facial implants (such as cheek or chin implants) can give your face a more balanced look. Does your chin recede and get lost underneath your nose and smile? Does your face appear rounded, lacking strong cheekbones and definition? Many women and men increase their self-confidence and attain a more defined facial appearance with chin and cheek facial implants in Boca Raton. You can be assured that you are in good hands when you request a FREE consultation with Dr. Steven Schuster or Dr. Daniel Kovacs. Patient, caring plastic surgeons in Boca Raton, Dr. Schuster and Dr. Kovacs will, first of all, consider your individual needs carefully and let you know all of your facial sculpting options.
The Basics – Boca Raton Chin Implants & Cheek Implants
Chin implants and cheek implants, collectively called facial implants, balance your facial features by building up areas that appear weak or undersized. Women and men, from teenagers to seniors, appreciate the improved facial contours that chin and cheek implant plastic surgery in Boca Raton provides. If you are interested in chin implants and cheek implants, chances are there are additional improvements you’d like to make to your face, such as ear pinning. Dr. Schuster and Dr. Kovacs often combine this procedure with a Boca Raton facelift, nose surgery or eyelid surgery to create an overall balanced and proportioned look to the face.
Our surgeons specifically select the proper size and shape of facial implants that will enhance your facial structure with plastic surgery in Boca Raton. For chin implant surgery, the surgeon creates a small incision that is out of sight, either just under the chin or inside the mouth along the lower lip. Afterwards, the surgeon creates a pocket behind the chin for the implant. For cheek implant surgery, Dr. Schuster or Dr. Kovacs will make incisions inside the mouth or lower eyelid through which they insert the implants and secure them in place. Each procedure usually takes under an hour to perform. After surgery, a dressing is placed over the surgical areas for support and to minimize swelling and discomfort. If your implant surgery is performed in conjunction with other facial sculpting procedures such as a facelift or brow lift, Dr. Schuster or Dr. Kovacs can insert the implants through the same incisions. The length of the entire surgery increases with additional procedures, but patients benefit from a single recovery period.

CAN I GET A FACELIFT ALONG WITH CHIN AND CHEEK IMPLANTS PLASTIC SURGERY IN BOCA RATON?
Yes. Many patients choose to have a complete facial enhancement by having other facial sculpting procedures performed during a single surgical session, such as a facelift or rhinoplasty (nose job) in Boca Raton. The added benefit is that they only have one recovery period.
HOW LONG IS THE RECOVERY PERIOD?
Most people return to work in just three to five days. Keep in mind that your recovery time will increase if other cosmetic procedures are performed, as well. Most facial implant cosmetic surgery patients in Boca Raton have some discomfort, swelling and bruising around the surgical area for a few days. You can expect some temporary difficulty with smiling, talking or moving your mouth. We will remove any external stitches usually about seven days after the procedure and stitches inside the mouth usually dissolve within ten days.
ARE THERE ANY SPECIAL RESTRICTIONS I MIGHT NEED TO MAKE AFTER FACIAL IMPLANT SURGERY?
You might need to avoid the following while recovering from facial implant surgery:
- Avoid smoking to minimize the chance of bleeding complications or infection
- Limit sports and other activities that might bump your face for several weeks
- Sleep only on your back and keep your head elevated during sleep for five to ten days
- Avoid drinking alcohol while on pain medication
- Stay out of the sun and heat for about a month
