Chin & Cheek implants surgery
Mr Golchin often uses facial implants to add structure and definition to the face.
There are many implants available, manufactured from a variety of materials. They may help strengthen a jaw line or bring the chin or cheekbones into balance with the rest of the face.
Cheek implants can make the face look fuller and more defined. Cheekbone augmentation requires careful planning, marking and measurement in order to ensure optimal results. Mr Golchin prefers to use silastic materials for cheek implants, as these materials can be folded to insert through a very small pocket into the field. This reduces the risk of any possible rejection and infection.
Chin implants can increase the size and projection of a chin that is not in proportion with the forehead and mid-face. A small or recessed chin can also be described as one that seems to disappear into the neck of an individual of normal weight, rather than appearing as a distinct facial feature. Typically, surgery involves placement of an implant around a patient’s existing chin bone to augment the size and shape of the chin and achieve a more naturally attractive balance between facial features. When performed by a qualified, experienced cosmetic surgeon like Mr Golchin, chin enhancement can provide a permanent solution to improve a weak or recessed chin.
The implant procedure is usually performed under general anaesthetic and takes between one and two hours. An overnight stay in the Beacon Hospital if often required post procedure.
Before any surgery is performed a consultation with Mr Kambiz Golchin is required. This consultation will likely be a discussion including a full medical history and exam if necessary. A medication review and facial assessment will also be done on the day. Mr Golchin will answer any questions you may have during the consultation and will explain the procedure in greater details and what to expect before and after the procedure.
