Austin chin augmentation and cheek surgery are both quite common, especially implants for individuals whose faces require refinement and contour to create an overall balance in conjunction with other facial features.
Chin surgery in Austin is performed at Personique®’s state-of-the-art center, using only the latest technique. Details about the procedure vary according to each individual’s needs. However, pre-surgery preparations are very similar. Anesthesia is local, combined with a mild sedative, although our physicians may suggest general anesthesia.

Chin Surgery Procedure
The surgery takes approximately an hour, in which a thin, small incision is made either inside the lower lip or below the chin. The size and type of insert is predetermined during your consultations. Chin surgery is also often performed along with other plastic surgery procedures, such as a facelift, nose, brow lift, and cheek implants.
Recovery from Austin Chin Augmentation Surgery
As with most surgical procedures, swelling and discomfort, along with some discoloration, is normal. A few weeks after your Austin chin augmentation procedure, all of these will subside and you may begin resuming your daily routine, nless additional procedures have been done. Our surgeons and staff will guide you through the recovery process, instructing you on how to care for yourself, what to avoid, and any other important details about post-surgical care. Additionally, our physicians will provide you with pain medication if necessary.
Cheek Implants in Austin
The cheek implant procedure takes about the same amount of time as chin implants – about an hour. If other procedures are being performed, the time may fluctuate. Just as it sounds, during a cheek implant a filler is inserted in the cheek area to create more contour and balance in the face. Individuals that undergo this type of procedure are pleased with the results, boosting their confidence and self-esteem.
Cheek Implant Procedure
During your consultation, the procedures you wish to have done will be discussed. This will help our plastic surgeons map out and outline the order in which the surgeries will be performed. If additional surgeries are scheduled, then the incisions made will serve more than one purpose. For example, if eye surgery will be done, then the implants can be inserted via the lower eyelid. If no additional surgery is schedule, the implant may be inserted via an incision done inside the upper lip.
Recovery after Cheek Surgery
It’s expected that discomfort, swelling and discoloration will be experienced after surgery. Smiling and eating for the first few days may be difficult. These symptoms and swelling will dissipate within approximately 10 to 15 days. Our professional team will help you during your recovery, detailing specific instructions to follow. Our staff will also schedule post surgical visits so our physicians can follow your progress.
