I am interested in getting implants for my cheeks. I am 28 years old and in good health. Will the incision be inside the mouth or under the chin? Is the procedure done under local anesthesia?
Cheek implants are place through an incision inside the mouth. Chin implants are placed through an incision under the chin. The procedure for cheek implants is performed under an IV sedation and local anesthesia and takes about an hour.
