Chin & Cheek Implants
As we get older, we tend to lose volume, particularly in the face. In addition, some people have inherited facial traits that result in the face appearing out of balance or disproportionate. In Lafayette, Louisiana, chin and cheek implants can help women and men who want to restore dimension and volume, or to create a more balanced facial appearance. Silicone chin and cheek implants can be used to augment these specified areas and create a facial appearance that is proportionate and even.

Chin and cheek implants can help improve the facial appearance by adding volume to certain areas of the face. Cheek implants can help create more prominent cheekbones or help to fill in areas of the cheeks that have lost volume during the aging process. Chin implants are typically used to improve a weak or under-projected chin. Chin implants are often combined with rhinoplasty for an improved profile. In general, facial implants can help restore dimension, and create a harmonious balance among your facial features.
Dr. Duplechain Explains Your Chin & Cheek Implant Procedure
For your chin or cheek implants, I will create an incision and place silicone implants in the specified area. For chin implants, the incision is created under the chin, so that the incision will remain inconspicuous. Cheek implants are typically performed through an intraoral incision so that no visible incision ever exists. Many of my patients elect to have liposuction of the neck or chin combined with their implants for a more sculpted and improved appearance.
Recovery & Results
After chin and cheek implant surgery, most patients are ready to return to their daily activities in about 4 to 7 days, depending on whether or not the procedure was combined with another facial procedure. Swelling and redness will typically subside within a few weeks. Once healed, you can enjoy your enhanced facial contours.
