What Is FFS Chin and Cheek Augmentation?
Chin and cheek augmentation, sometimes referred to as facial implant surgery, uses implants to balance facial proportions, enhance facial contours, or to feminize facial features for those who may lack feminine features due to the gender they were born into, genetics, or inherited traits. It is a complex procedure that involves a lot of finesse on the surgeons’ part as the right size, shape, and placement of the implants will highly determine the results.

What to Expect from FFS Chin | Cheek Augmentation with Dr. Huynh
With a chin augmentation, Dr. Huynh starts by making a small incision in the naturally occurring line underneath the chin. The skin is pulled outward so that Dr. Huynh can strategically place the implant. Chin implants are available in a variety of different sizes and shapes that are customized specifically for each patient during the consultation process. The chin implants are made of a safe, pliable material to fit the patient’s facial structure and Dr. Huynh’s objective. Visible scarring is minimal as Dr. Huynh makes the incision inside the mouth. After the implant has been placed and fixated to the bone, Dr. Huynh will use fine sutures to close the incision. With the incision inside of the mouth, there will be no visible scarring.
During a cheek augmentation, Dr. Huynh will make a small incision inside the mouth. Next, he will position the cheek implant in a small pocket under the skin. Once the implants are in a position, they are fixated to the bone using tiny titanium screws to prevent shifting. The incision will be closed with sutures, and you’ll be sent for recovery. A cheek augmentation leaves no scars as the incisions are made on the inside of the mouth.
FFS Chin | Cheek Augmentation Recovery
Immediately after your surgery, Dr. Huynh will monitor your discomfort and assist in any way that he can. Chewing will be difficult for a few days after your procedure; limit your diet to mostly liquid and soft foods so that you don’t disturb or damage the sutures. Most patients feel a stretched, tight sensation after their chin or cheek augmentation, but this usually subsides within a week.
After about six weeks, most swelling should be gone, and you will be able to see your results. The surgeon may recommend avoiding rigorous activities for the first few weeks after surgery to ensure no physical harm is done to the implants while they’re still healing in their permanent place. Normal activities are usually approved after two weeks.
What Is FFS?
Facial Feminization Surgery, or FFS, involves a comprehensive set of procedures to make a patient’s face appear more feminine. Transgender women may choose FFS surgery as a part of their male-to-female transformation journey. FFS can include hairline lowering, jaw reduction, rhinoplasty (nose surgery), eyelid surgery, face or neck lift, and other facial changes including lip augmentation, Botox, and dermal fillers. FFS might involve one surgery or a series of procedures to achieve each patient’s individual aesthetic goals.
As an immigrant from Vietnam, Dr. Huynh developed a deep sympathy and desire to help people who were born with an aesthetic or into a position that they had no choice in. It’s for that reason that FFS is not only something he specializes in, but he takes great care and attention to detail when it comes to his patients on this particular journey in their lives. During your consultation, don’t hesitate to discuss with Dr. Huynh the areas of your face that you’d like to alter to fit your true identity.
