Facial implants bring balance and better proportion to the structural appearance of your face. If you are bothered by a small chin, weak jaw or lack of facial contour, plastic surgery with facial implants may benefit you.
Facial implants are specially formed solid materials compatible with human tissues, designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face.
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.
Chin implants can increase the size and projection of a chin that is not in proportion with the forehead and mid-face. Jaw implants increase the width of the lower third of your face. Cheek implants increase the projection of the cheekbones. They add volume to areas that may be recessed or flat.
While the initial outcome of plastic surgery with facial implants is noticeable almost immediately, it will be obscured by visible swelling. It may take several months for swelling to fully dissipate.
The final results of your facial implants will be long-lasting; however, the initial healing phase may include localized swelling, discoloration, numbness or discomfort.
