What No One Tells You About Chin and Cheek Reshaping

If you were not born with high cheekbones or a strong well-defined chin then thanks to all of the advances in plastic surgery, you can have facial implants put in to give you the physical features you desire. Chin reshaping is called chin augmentation or mentoplasty while cheek reshaping or cheek implants are referred to as malar augmentation. Both surgical procedures help to make the face look more appealing and distinctive and these surgeries are very good for those who were born with facial features that were not symmetrical or were born with a congenital defect.

People who are planning to have a nose job are often encouraged to have a chin implant as well as this helps to balance out the face to a great extent. Cheek implants are particularly beneficial for patients who are between the ages of 38 and 50 years of age because the implants can bring a vast improvement to the midfacial contour and they can help to revive the soft tissues of the midface to discourage sagging of the skin. This means that the need for a facelift is pushed back a number of years. On the other hand if a patient is undergoing a facelift, having cheek implants put in at the same time can improve the overall appearance of the face tremendously.

Unlike many types of plastic surgery, patients who have either chin or cheek reshaping are generally very happy with the results. At your consultation the plastic surgeon can show you pictures of other patients that show the before and after surgery photos to give you an idea of how the implants will look after the fact.

Both chin and cheek implants are very safe as well as relatively inexpensive and they come with low risks as far as the health and well being of the patient is concerned. Facial implants are either solide or porous and are made from two different kinds of material. The solide ones are made from non-toxic silicone while the porous ones are crafted from a non-toxic material material called ePTFE or expanded polytetrafluoroethylene. Millions of both types of facial implants are made on a regular basis and to date there have been no reported incidences of patients suffering allergic reactions. Both types of facial implants come in a multitude of sizes and shapes and they can be custom fitted and trimmed by the plastic surgeon to fit a patient in the most natural way possible.

Always check your health insurance policy before making the decision to have either chin or cheek reshaping, as most companies do not cover either procedure because it is considered to be cosmetic. On the other hand if you want to have this surgery in order to improve upon a facial defect or for a reconstructive reasons, such as you were injured in an accident, then the insurance company might be willing to pay a partial amount for the surgery or they might even cover the entire procedure.
