(Including Cheek Implants, Chin Implants and
Tear Trough Implants)
Facial Implants such as cheek implants or chin implants
permanently enhance features with poor definition or inadequate
projection. Hollowness in the region under the eye causing a tired
or sunken appearance can be corrected with Tear Trough Implants
recently designed by Dr. Hoenig for this purpose.

Anywhere from the 20s to 70s, and beyond.
An incision is made through the mouth or lower eyelid and a pocket
is created adjacent to the bone for placement of the implant. The
implant is then positioned and the pocket is sutured closed.
Surgical Time and Recovery:
Facial Implant surgery is performed on an outpatient basis with
local anesthesia and oral or IV sedation and usually takes about
an hour. Stitches are either removed in 3 to 5 days, or are dissolvable.
Bruising is minimal and most swelling subsides after 1 to 2 weeks,
however residual swelling can last for several months.
Cheek implant, chin implant, or tear trough implant surgery can
be combined with blepharoplasty,
midface lift, necklift,
fat transfer, and chemical
peels or laser resurfacing.
