Facial implants are specially formed by solid materials compatible with human tissues, designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face.
Will I have to be in the hospital?
Chin, Cheek and Jaw surgeries are considered outpatient procedures. You will most likely return to the comfort of your home the same day. The procedure may be done in a hospital, outpatient surgery center, or in your surgeon’s accredited office-based surgical suite. Most commonly, local anesthesia with intravenous sedation is used, although in some cases, a surgeon may suggest general anesthesia. After the surgery you will be closely monitored and cared for in a recovery room until you are released to go home. Within the first 2 weeks after surgery; in most cases, can vary from person to person, you will be asked to return to the doctor’s office as needed until the final result is obtained.
If you feel like enhancing your facial features, schedule a consultation and discover how this procedure can benefit you.
What are facial implants?
The precise type and size of facial implants best suited for you requires an evaluation of your goals, the features you wish to correct, and your surgeon's judgment.
If you are bothered by a small chin, weak jaw, or lack of facial contour, plastic surgery with facial implants may benefit you.
While any area of your face can be augmented with implants, the cheek or malar area, chin, and jaw are the most common sites for facial implants.
Chin implants can increase the size and projection of a chin that is not in proportion with the forehead and mid-face.
A small or recessed chin can also be described as one that seems to disappear into the neck of an individual of normal weight, rather than appearing as a distinct facial feature.
Jaw implants increase the width of the lower third of your face.
Much like the chin, a weak jaw can be thought of as one that is not well defined and distinct from the neck or one that slopes rather than angles from the ear to the chin.
In some cases, both the chin and jaw can contribute to facial imbalance.
Cheek implants increase the projection of the cheekbones. They add volume to areas that may be recessed or flat.
