Questions & Answers The Surgical Experience About Anaesthesia 

I am interested in cheek implants and chin remodelling.

Your questions answered by our surgeon, Lucian Ion, FRCS(Plast)

Asked on 20 September 2011


I am a little confused with the fee for 3d imaging.

£150 for a consultation, but £100 on top for the 3d imaging, so £250 for one consultation?

How long do they last and can the end result be completed in one consultation or are several needed?

Also I am interested in cheek implants and a chin implant. Could they both be covered at the same time.

Thirdly, the chin implant, would this help strengthen my jawline?

Last question, is the 3d imaging result usually 99% accurate to the outcome?


Yes indeed, with 3-D imaging there is an additional £100 fee to the normal consultation fee of £300.

It is possible to cover facial sculpting during one consultation, in relation to cheek implants and chin implant. In terms of jawline contour, a chin implant can be of help, although sometimes you can achieve the same effect by reducing the volume above and below the jawline.

To my knowledge, no imaging is 100% accurate to the outcome. The primary purpose of the imaging is to work together to define the target, and identify the operation or combination of operations that is most likely to achieve a result which is reasonably close. I do not think there is an easy way to define the correlation between plan and outcome as a percentage.
