Dr. Henry Mentz is a triple board-certified plastic surgeon in Houston who improves the appearance of the face by using implants to create a more balanced and proportionate look with chin and cheek implants. A cheek implant can enhance cheeks by giving them a more prominent and sculpted look and by restoring a youthful fullness to this area. In the aging process, the face loses the fat which helps to keep it looking smooth and supple, while other areas of the body tend to gain it. A chin implant will give the chin added definition for a more balanced appearance between facial features. A chin implant can help the nose to look more proportionate on the face and it can create a more defined contour between the chin and neck.
"I have been a patient of Dr. MENTZ for more than 15 years. He is an artist...very gifted. He is extremely kind and thoughtful. His staff is conscientious, diligent and very responsive. Choose Dr Mentz and you will be ecstatic with the quality and aesthetics. Also HIGHLY recommend Renee at the spa for fillers, Botox excetera. She is just the best."- L.F. / Yelp / Mar 01, 2017

"I had an amazing experience. Would do it again. - I was lucky to choose Dr. Mentz as my surgeon. I am 13 days out at this time so still early in the recovery process but I am very satisfied with my progress. I had the remainder of my sutures removed yesterday and am looking forward to the future with my new much improved face. Dr. Mentz and his "family" of caring staff are beyond what everyone should look for in a PS. I know I chose the best!! - - I was lucky to choose Dr. Mentz as my surgeon.

To give the cheeks a look that appears more naturally sculpted and full, Dr. Mentz prefers to restore volume to this area through the use of either cosmetic fillers or stem-cell enriched fat grafts. If fat grafting is the chosen method, he will take fat that has been liposuctioned from other areas of the body and inject it into the cheeks to resculpt their appearance. To provide definition to the chin, Dr. Mentz uses either a chin implant or fat grafts obtained from liposuctioning other areas of the body.
Patients will have mild to moderate bruising and discomfort for 1-2 days after their surgery as they follow a liquid-only diet. Dr. Mentz will give each patient specific instructions based on their surgery, but it may include antibiotics, drains, and compression garments. Most patients will need 1-2 weeks before they can return to normal activities and 6-8 weeks before exercise can be resumed.

A patient may choose to have this procedure in conjunction with a facelift or rhinoplasty to create an overall more youthful look. Implants may also be combined with nonsurgical facial injections like BOTOX and Juvéderm.
To ensure a smooth surgery and optimal healing, patients should stop smoking, taking aspirin, and avoid certain other prescription and herbal medications. Patients should also remain well-hydrated before and after their surgery.
To minimize the appearance of scarring after facial implant surgery, Dr. Mentz makes his surgical incisions in areas of the face where they either won’t be visible or they will blend into the skin. For chin implants, the incision is usually made inside the mouth and cheek implants can be inserted through incisions in the mouth or around the eyes.
