Patients with a flat cheek bone appearance may augment it using cheek implants. These implants are pre-formed and available in several sizes. They are inserted through a small incision in the mouth. Augmentation maybe performed at the time of an upper jaw surgery or as an isolated cosmetic procedure.
Where are these procedures performed?
Both chin and cheek augmentation procedures can be done in the office under IV sedation and local anesthesia. They can also be performed in the hospital under general anesthesia if completed in concert with corrective jaw surgery.
