Can I feel the implants after they are in my face?
Are there any complications of chin and cheek implants?
In the immediate post operative period, swelling, bruising and numbness of the lips can occur but resolve quickly. Movement of the lips while speaking, eating and smiling may temporarily feel strange but this too subsides within a month and returning to normal. Very rarely implants can become infected requiring removal.
Can chin or cheek implants be placed during another facial surgery?
While chin and cheek implants can be performed as stand alone procedures, we more commonly place them in combination with our facelifts to improve the results.
