Chin & Cheek Implants
Dr. Hopping performs Cheek implants in Washington DC, to improve the midfacial contour and restore volume to sagging midfacial soft tissues.
Beauty may only be skin deep, but for centuries, well-defined facial features have been considered traits of physical beauty. Prominent cheekbones and a strong chin provide balance, definition and attractiveness.
Implants are a safe, permanent method for correcting a receding chin or weak cheekbone contour. Chin implants can often postpone the need for a facelift. For patients having a facelift, cheek implants can ensure improved, longer-lasting results.

Facial implants are a safe, low-cost, low-risk procedure. During your consultation, Dr. Hopping listens to your expectations and discusses the benefits and risks of the procedure.
Millions of facial implants made from safe, synthetic materials have been implanted with no reported cases of allergic reaction. The implants, designed specifically for use in the midfacial cheek area and the chin, come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. Dr. Hopping has expertise in customizing implants for a more natural result.
Both chin and cheek implantation procedures are performed at THE Center for Cosmetic Surgery under local or sedation anesthesia, on an outpatient basis. Chin augmentation (mentoplasty) and cheek implants (malar augmentation) procedures are designed to permanently enhance one’s facial attractiveness. These procedures can also benefit patients with facial asymmetries or congenital defects.
After your the procedure, a dressing will be kept on the area for about three days. Any post-operative discomfort can be controlled with medication. Keeping your head elevated and applying cold compresses during the first 24 hours will keep swelling to a minimum. A soft food diet may be required for a few days as chewing may be limited. Patients are back to usual activities in one to two weeks. External scars are minimal and will fade significantly over time. Strenuous activities should be avoided for several weeks.
Chin implants result in significant improvement especially in the profile. The cheekbones can be expected to mimic natural high cheekbones. The best news is that results from chin and cheek implants are permanent.
