In plastic surgery, ideal face measurements are available with measurements taken from different regions. Some people may have deficiencies in the jaw or cheekbones. Jaw and cheekbone prostheses are used to make the chin or cheekbone area more prominent.
Jaw and cheekbone prostheses are placed through the mouth. No trace is left on the face.
The prostheses used can be hydroxyapatite, silicone, polyethylene.
These operations are performed under general anaesthesia.
The operation takes about 1-1.5 hours.
The patient is sent home after 6 hours of follow-up.
It is recommended to take liquid foods on the first day.
