Chin and cheekbones are important structures in a human face for main lines and aesthetic purposes. Therefore, it is very important for these two structures to be proportioned as an upside down triangle for the face to look beautiful and young.
The deformities of gonion and cheekbones could be resolved by using implants. Medpor and silicon implants are used for this purpose.
General rules apply for facial implant operations are; stop taking or regulating Aspirin and other blood-diluting drugs least 1 week before the surgery, not consuming vitamins (such as vitamin e), herbal products (tomato seeds, cherry stalk etc) herbal teas, not taking any alcohol within 24-48 hours before the surgery, quitting smoke 3 weeks before the surgery and not smoking in the recovery period after the surgery.
