"I had breast surgery done from Dr. Mang 17 years ago, the results were amazing. I had minimal scarring. He and his staff followed up with me amazingly. Fast forward almost 20 years later, due to weight loss, weight gain, 2 more children and poor skin due to heritertly, I went back to Dr. Mang for another surgery. Again the results were perfect. In addition to excellent work, he checks on you PERSONALLY after your surgery. He is a talented surgeon. I again received exactly what I was looking for. Some people expect plastic surgeons to make them look like the housewives of Beverly Hills.. this isn’t going to happen ladies..However a good Dr. WILL create the best look and fit for you and what you have to work with."- A.L. / Google / Jun 09, 2020
"I always wanted to try out Botox, just a chicken committing because I don’t like needles; A few of my coworkers went with me to ease the idea of doing it alone.It’s important to note, they used clean and individual packages of needles for each of us and numbing cream with betadine on the spots I wanted to be injected with the filler. The process wasn’t bad at all, especially since they were doing a $9/unit special accompanied by a glass of Rose - how can I say no to that? When Dr. Mang injected my forehead and pulled out the needle, you can hear a small crunch; this is normal and Dr. Mang explained if you don’t hear this sound, it is not being done correctly. I wouldn’t have done this or brought other people unless it was anyone else than fellow Yelper, Anna M., because I trust her so much.Thank you for the opportunity - even though I got 10 units vs. 50 units of botox compared to a coworker - I feel that it was effective to iron out my wrinkles, even though I know I have minimal amount heading into my 30s. This was my X-mas gift to myself!I saw firsthand the difference for people who do have a lot of wrinkles & are young, so IMO botox is such an amazing product to help smooth out wrinkles."- J.X. / Google / Mar 01, 2020
"Dr. Brandon Mang has recently relocated his Pinellas Park office to South Tampa on Gandy Boulevard. I normally receive Botox injections from a nurse practitioner at a nearby practice. The people who have injected my Botox in the past have been quick in their process...almost too quick. Dr. Mang takes the time to discuss your areas of concern, applies numbing cream, and then marks these areas with Betadine to ensure no infection and proper placement. I chose Dr. Mang because he is an expert in his field. He and his staff are professional and friendly. Dr. Mang’s genuine bedside manner with his patients is truly one of the best I have ever encountered. He takes the time to answer all your questions and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the procedures you are inquiring about. I highly recommend Dr. Brandon Mang for all your plastic and cosmetic surgery needs."- A.M. / Google / Feb 20, 2020

Is Cheek or Chin Augmentation For You?
Ideal patients for cheek or chin augmentation are men and women who:
- Want more volume in their mid-face
- Have age-related volume loss in their cheeks
- Have naturally hollow or flat cheeks
- Have lost a significant amount of weight, resulting in deflated cheeks
- Have imbalanced cheeks because of a congenital defect, a health condition, or trauma
- Prefer a more defined jawline
- Have a recessed chin
- Have a fuller-looking neck
- Maintain good health
Injectable fillers are a good choice for patients who don't want to commit to the time and expense of surgery. Because dermal fillers create temporary results, they may also help patients have a better idea of their preferred amount of volume. This gives them an idea of what to expect before committing to surgery. Surgical cheek or chin augmentation with implants is a good choice for patients who prefer a longer-lasting solution. Patients who prefer implants also need time for recovery.
Before your treatment, Dr. Mang will perform a thorough exam and create a customized treatment plan that aligns with your unique cosmetic goals. During your consultation, you can choose from surgical cheek or chin implants or nonsurgical dermal fillers.
Taking around 20 – 30 minutes to complete, dermal filler treatments are considered an outpatient procedure. At the beginning of your treatment, we will mark the injection sites along the cheeks or chin. Next, we inject the fillers into the marked areas and massage the skin to ensure your cheeks look even. Right after your treatment, you can leave and resume your daily routine.
Cheek or Chin Implants
Surgical cheek and chin augmentation is an outpatient procedure that we perform in our AAAHC-accredited surgical facility. We will start either procedure by administering general anesthesia. During cheek augmentation with implants, Dr. Mang creates thin incisions through the upper gums, and a pocket is created over the cheekbones. Next, the implants are placed inside the pocket, and your incisions are closed with sutures. For chin implants, the incision is made underneath the chin or inside your lower lip. The implant is placed into the pocket, and Dr. Mang closes the incisions with sutures. Following either of these procedures, you will need a responsible adult to drive you home so you can start your recovery.
What to Expect
For about 1 – 2 weeks after your procedure, you will experience slight swelling, tightness, and bruising. At first, you should avoid strenuous activities that can strain your facial muscles for about 7 – 10 days. Optimal healing usually takes around two months, but your results are long-lasting.
Following a dermal filler treatment, the mid-face or chin will feel sore and you may have some mild swelling for about 3 – 5 days. To minimize any discomfort, Dr. Mang recommends cold compresses and over-the-counter pain relievers. Generally, patients can see their final results in 10 – 14 days. To maintain your results, you will need to schedule follow-up appointments with Dr. Mang. He can help you determine when to schedule your next appointment.
