The Risks of Chin and Cheek Reshaping

All surgeries carries risks but if you are considering having facial implants put in, whether they be chin or cheek implants, then the good news is that these are two of the lowest risks of all forms of plastic surgery. Plastic surgeons perform a tremendous amount of both chin and cheek implants every year and and the complications from both these kinds of operations are infrequent. Facial implants are safe and are made from either non-toxic silicone or non-toxic expanded polytetrafluorethylene (ePTFE). There have been no known cases in the United States of patients developing an allergic reaction to their chin or cheek implants and most people are genuinely pleased with the end result of their surgery.

Two Types of Risks

The risks that can accompany surgery are broken down into two specific groups- there are the risks that are possible when it comes to any operation and then there are the risks that are unique to having facial implants put in. The risks for the former include the standard worries, which are that of bruising, swelling, bleeding, scarring, infection, numbness and a complete and permanent loss of sensation in the area where the surgery was done. When it comes to chin and cheek implants the greatest risks are that the patient will not be pleased with the results (which is very rare but it does happen on occasion) and the concern that the facial implant will change its position will necessitate a second operation.

Talk with the Surgeon

Before making the decision to have chin or cheek reshaping done it is important to sit down with the plastic surgeon and talk at length about the procedure. Discuss the benefits of the surgery as well as the risks and view before and after photos of other people to see if you like the results that were achieved after their surgeries. Do not hesitate to ask questions in regards to any aspect of the surgery if you have any, which you more than likely will.

Infections

While infections from chin or cheek implant surgery are rare, they do sometimes occur. If you develop an affection at the site of the surgery the plastic surgeon will prescribe antibiotics to clear up the infection as soon as possible. If antibiotics do not manage to clear up the infection or if it gets worse then the facial implant will likely have to be taken out until the infection completely goes away and then it can be replaced at some later date in the future. If you develop an infection go see the plastic surgeon right away.

Shifting

Facial implants sometimes move out of alignment and this is known as shifting. Even if an implant shifts a very small distance it can present a problem. Shifting can often necessitate a second surgery in which the implant must be repositioned into its appropriate place. Shifting of facial implants is not likely to happen more than once but there have been cases where it has.
