It’s rare to be born with perfectly symmetrical features and an ideally proportioned face. However, individual facial features can have a significant impact on your overall appearance. One of the best ways to achieve a more balanced look is by using cheek and chin implants. Even the most subtle enlargement or reshaping can completely transform the face and reduce signs of aging.
Here at The South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery, our Board Certified Doctors can combine your cheek and chin shaping with other procedures, such as facelift, eyelid lift, forehead lift, or neck lift. The result is improved facial balance and harmony and an overall rejuvenated appearance.
Both cheek and chin implants are inserted through small incisions in the face, and the procedure typically takes about 60-90min
The cost of cheek or chin implants varies, depending on the patient and whether or not they receive any supplementary procedures. In total, you can expect to pay between $3,000 and $5,000 for cheek or chin implants. The South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery is committed to helping our patients find the most convenient payment method for their procedure.

During your initial visit, expect to provide your complete medical history, including all your medications, allergies, and previous surgeries.

well as a realistic explanation of the results you can expect to achieve.
Surgery for cheek and chin implants can be coupled with additional procedures, and they are performed under general anesthesia. Cheek implants are inserted through small incisions inside the upper lip directly under the cheekbones. Chin implants inserted either through a tiny incision underneath the chin or through an incision inside the lower lip. In both cases, once the implants are firmly in place, your surgeon will close the incisions with either dissolvable or traditional stitches and then apply a dressing to swelling.
You may experience some pain and discomfort upon waking up from anesthesia. Our goal is to keep you as comfortable as possible. So, your surgeon will provide you with medication to relieve any pain or soreness. For the first few days after your procedure, your activities and diet will be restricted. Black and blue marks may also be visible around your chin and neck so plan your clothing choices with that in mind.
Your surgeon will give you very specific instructions regarding dental/oral hygiene, eating a soft food diet, sleeping positions, and activity restrictions. However, patience is key, and giving your face a chance to heal is extremely important. Most patients return to their usual activities in one week and avoid activities that could jar or bump the face for up to six weeks.

When coupled with a facelift, cheek implants are inserted through the facelift incision. However, if the procedure is performed alone, the implants are placed inside the upper lip directly below the cheekbones. Alternatively, an incision may be made inside your lower eyelid, where your surgeon can form a pocket to insert the implant.
Chin shaping can be performed with the implant inserted either through a tiny incision underneath the chin or through an incision inside the lower lip. Your surgeon will explain before your surgery which incision will be better for you. After the incision is made, a small pocket will be created beneath the skin, fatty tissue and muscle to hold the implant securely against the jaw.
During your consultation, you will be given specific directions to help you prepare for your procedure. Instructions generally include cautions about taking certain medication and drinking alcohol, the shaving process and the use of antibacterial soap. Your surgeon will also perform a complete physical examination, take blood tests, and take photos of your face to aid in planning and performing your cheek and chin shaping. The photographs become a permanent part of your patient record and are taken before and several months after your procedure.
Cheek shaping usually takes between 60 to 90 minutes. Similarly, chin shaping can take anywhere from 45 to 60 minutes. Procedure times vary, depending on the patient.
