Chin and Cheek Implants

Improve Facial Contours and Definitions with Cheek and Chin Implant Surgery in Melbourne.

About Facial Implants

Facial implants are used to renew and enhance facial contours, achieve a better balance to facial features and restore a more youthful appearance.

The two main types of facial implant surgery our surgeons perform are cheek implants or a chin implant.

Cheek implants are used to build up areas that appear “sunken” due to the ageing process or to enhance the contours of the face.

We use soft, flexible silicone cheek implants which are attached to the cheek bone and are able to be contoured to achieve a natural and imperceptible result. Cheek surgery offers a permanent solution to a sunken midface and to people with lack of facial curves. Silicone cheek implants come in various sizes so your plastic surgeon can tailor them to meet your individual needs.

A common reason to undergo a chin implant is to improve one’s facial profile by creating a better balance between the chin and other facial features.

A chin implant can also be beneficial to assist in balancing out a larger nose. Chin plastic surgery offers a permanent solution for people with a “weak” or “small” chin and will give more shape to the jaw line.

Chin implant surgery in Australia is popular amongst both men and women.

What’s Involved in Cheek and Chin Implant Surgery?

Cheek and chin implant surgery is a highly individualised procedure, and as such, design and implementation must be customised to meet each patient’s unique needs.

Cheek implants are designed to offer a permanent solution to improve the contours, shape, and definition of your face.

A small incision is made on the inside of the mouth. Soft tissue is then lifted from the bone, creating room for the implant to be inserted. Cheek implant surgery usually takes 1 hour.

Chin implant surgery involves your surgeon making small incisions inside your mouth, on the gum line below your front lower teeth.

When inserted, the implant should feel natural and comfortable. Outcomes include improved chin definition as well as more balanced facial features and a better perception of your overall appearance.

Both cheek and chin implant surgery can be performed alongside other facial techniques including eyelid surgery, rhinoplasty, and facelift surgery.

Your Consultation

Initial consultation:

Your initial consultation with Mr Mutimer or A/Prof Shayan will last approx. 30 min. Your surgeon will discuss your procedure in detail and the technique to be used. You will see sample implants and photos will be taken. Depending on the surgery, complimentary 3D scanning may be performed, with simulated images emailed to you the same day. 3D scanning allows you to better understand what the proposed changes to your chin may look like. At your initial consult you will also meet our Patient Advisor who will take you through costs and discuss potential dates for your surgery.

Pre-operative appointment:

2 weeks prior to your procedure you will meet Mr Mutimer or A/Prof Shayan for a final consultation and to finalise your implant/s.

You will also meet with the Patient Advisor and Practice Nurse to finalise all administration, and discuss pre and post-operative care instructions. Payment for your surgery is also finalised at this time.
