- Have age-related volume loss in your cheeks
- Have naturally hollow or flat cheeks
- Have lost a lot of weight, leading to sagging cheeks
- Have asymmetry in your mid-face from genetics, a physical condition, or a trauma

How Do Cheek and Chin Implants Work?
Prior to your cheek or chin treatment, Dr. Mang will perform a thorough exam to decide on a treatment plan that is ideal for your unique needs and goals.
Surgical cheek augmentation is an outpatient procedure that is performed at an accredited facility since you will likely be sedated with general anesthesia. Once you are ready, Dr. Mang will create the incisions inside your gums so a pocket can be made above the cheekbones. From there, the implants will be placed and the incisions will be sutured. Cheek implant surgery typically lasts around an hour, and you can be allowed to go home with a family member or friend to start your recovery at home.
If you're receiving chin augmentation, you can expect an incision to be made under your chin to create a pocket for the implant. Some tissue, cartilage, and bone will likely be removed and shaved to create this pocket that will secure your implant. From there, the implant will be inserted and positioned to give you your desired look. In some cases, the incision can be created inside your lip near your gumline to help hide scarring. Once your incisions have been closed, the bottom portion of your face will be wrapped in bandages, and you will be ready to begin your recovery at home.
What Can I Expect After My Cheek or Chin Implants?
With cheek augmentation, you can expect some bruising, swelling, and tightness for around 1 – 2 weeks following your procedure. Strenuous activity that will cause your facial muscles to strain (such as weight training) should be avoided for at least 7 – 10 days. Optimal healing typically takes about two months, but the results last for many years.
After chin augmentation, you can expect redness, swelling, and discoloration following your procedure. Your recovery period will last around two weeks, during which time heavy exercise and strenuous activity should be avoided. Your results will likely be seen immediately and will only get better as your side effects diminish.

Cheek And Chin Implants FAQ
Can I get fat grafting to fill in my cheeks instead of implants?
Yes, you can. Dr. Mang offers the latest facial fat grafting procedures to restore lost volume in the cheeks and the area around the eyes. By using your body's own fat, Dr. Mang can achieve a natural look and feel while reducing the risk of rejection. During your consultation, ask Dr. Mang about facial fat grafting to see if this procedure is right for you.
Can cheek augmentation fix an asymmetrical face?
An asymmetrical face where each side is slightly different is quite common. Dr. Mang can address facial asymmetry caused by the volume or height of your cheekbones with cheek implants. During your consultation, talk to Dr. Mang about your concerns so he can create a cheek augmentation plan to help you reach your aesthetic goals and achieve a more balanced, symmetrical look.
Will chin augmentation fix my double chin?
Surgical chin augmentation is meant to offer you a stronger, sharper look to your jawline. If you have a double chin, you may prefer a liposuction procedure where the fat in your upper neck below the jawline (the submental area) is removed. Occasionally, neck liposuction on its own can give you a new jawline and appearance without chin augmentation surgery. Dr. Mang will discuss your choices and his suggestions in your consultation.
Can I combine other facial surgeries with chin augmentation?
Some people get a chin implant with another facial surgery, such as cheek augmentation or rhinoplasty. Dr. Mang can help you decide which procedures match your needs and wants during your initial consultation. It can be challenging to tell on your own what procedure(s) will be best for you, which is why your consultation with Dr. Mang is so crucial. He can use his years of experience and eye for aesthetically pleasing results to help you develop your unique plan.
What's the difference between mentoplasty and genioplasty?
Mentoplasty is a procedure that adds fullness to your chin. Genioplasty, on the other hand, is a procedure to rebuild the chin bone. Depending on the state of your chin plus your cosmetic goals, you might need both surgeries or one. A genioplasty, in addition to being a cosmetic procedure, may also be performed to improve your dental bite or another medical concern. Dr. Mang can help you decide whether you should get a mentoplasty, genioplasty, or both.
