For most people, facial appearance and the prominence of certain features are largely related to genetics or certain medical conditions when growing up. Less-than-prominent facial features like sallow cheeks of a soft-appearing chin can have a serious effect on your self-esteem.

One very effective method for addressing issues like this is to have Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD provide you with cheek or chin implants. This is a relatively straight forward treatment that can be administered at Julie Kupersmith MD, PC in a single outpatient appointment.

Small incisions will be made in the cheeks and your chin. Small pockets will be made in the local tissues. Then, biologically safe implants will be gently inserted and the skin will be carefully sutured to minimize postoperative scarring.

Afterward you might feel some tension in your cheeks and chin. Most people also experience some minor bruising or inflammation. To help you maintain comfort through the recovery process, Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD might prescribe some anti-inflammatory or pain management medications.

You might want to also cut back on eating hard foods. The pressure of biting down can sometimes cause minor discomfort. Regular tobacco users should also strongly consider a cessation program. Tobacco use can have an adverse effect on healing skin.

Any other specific postoperative care considerations will be presented to you by Dr. Julie E. E. Kupersmith MD.

If you are considering cheek or chin implants in New Rochelle, New York, you should call 914.235.5171 to set up a consultation session at Julie Kupersmith MD, PC.
