Cheek and chin implants were first used for reconstruction of the face after birth defects and damage caused by accidents or trauma. Now, cheek and chin implants are used regularly by cosmetic surgeons to make a person’s cheeks or jaw line of a more pleasing shape. Malarplasty is the medical term used to describe the augmentation or general reshaping of the cheeks and jaw.
The operation takes between 30 minutes to 2 hours depending on the extent of the procedure and the implant material used.
Private prices for facial cheek or chin implants can be in the £1,500 - £3,000 range depending upon the type of implant used.
Mr. Adrian Richards explains cheek augmentation procedures, the outcome, and alternative options such as Cheek implants with dermal fillers.
