Are Chin and Cheek Implants Right for Me?

Chin and cheek implants are great procedures, but they aren’t for everyone. The only way to find out for sure if it’s the right cosmetic surgery for you is to discuss your options with a professional. A surgeon will hear your cosmetic goals and help you determine the best path going forward.

Am I a Good Candidate for Chin Implants?

There are a few criteria to keep in mind when determining if you’re a good candidate for chin and cheek implants. As for chin implants, those who have a recessed chin, misshaped chin, or a fleshy, thick neck are great candidates for the procedure.

Unlike most cosmetic surgeries, chin implants aren’t just designed for one sex. Both men and women can benefit from chin implant surgery if they meet the criteria. A great way to find out if you are a good candidate for chin implant surgery is to first try a dermal filler. The filler will provide you with a similar look as the chin implants would, and the filler isn’t permanent. It will wear off eventually if you don’t like the way it makes you look.

Chin implant surgery is also great for those who are suffering from a birth defect. The implants will be able to correct any issues there are, leaving you refreshed and confident.

Am I a Good Candidate for Cheek Implants?

On the other hand, cheek implants have completely different criteria for candidates. Cheek implants are great for older people who have lost some of the definition or volume in their faces over the years. It’s also great for people who have hollow-type cheeks. Implants can even correct issues with symmetry.

Cheek implant surgery can also be used to correct the damage done during accidents. Unexpected changes to the face from damage will likely require some sort of cheek implant to correct any visual damage.
