What you need to know about facial implants

At Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg, our doctors are available to assist with facial and body surgeries to improve appearance and confidence. For patients who need to augment the face, facial implants may be considered. Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot can educate you on what to expect with facial implants and the surgery required.

What do I need to know about cosmetic facial implants?

If you’re considering getting implants to augment your face, there are a few things you should know. First, it is critical that you consult with a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon to discuss your goals and see if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. During this consultation, Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot will evaluate the structure of your face to determine which type of facial implant would work best for your needs. They will also take into account your skin thickness and elasticity, as well as the amount of existing fat on your face.

What can I expect from surgery?

After you have decided on the type of implant you want, the next step is to undergo surgery to have the implants placed. The surgery is done with proper anesthesia. During the procedure, your plastic surgeon makes incisions in strategic locations around your face. He will then insert the implant or implants through these incisions and position them in the desired location. Finally, he closes the incisions with sutures or skin adhesive.

Post-operative care following facial implants

After the surgery, you can expect to experience some swelling and bruising around the incision sites. These potential side effects should subside within a few days. You might also notice some numbness in the area where the implants were placed. This is temporary and resolves on its own over time. Once the swelling and bruising have subsided, you’ll be able to see amazing results!

Augmenting various areas of the face using facial implants

If you are interested in contouring your facial features for a more stunning, striking appearance, you may want to speak to the team at the Plastic Surgery Center of Hattiesburg about the advantages of using facial implants. Just like implants are used to contour the breasts or buttocks, implants are also available to help define one’s facial features. Some of the more common types of implants used by Drs. William Reno III and Paul Talbot include the chin and cheek implants.

  • Chin implant – patients with a weak chin that is either small or setback in the profile will find that a chin implant can make a dramatic difference in their appearance. The chin implant is placed in a way to improve facial structure and contour. It can make the jawline more apparent, ensuring a more chiseled appearance. At the same time, the chin implant can reduce the appearance of a double chin, or “submental fullness.” This can result in patients looking thinner in the face while ensuring the jawline in more dramatic in overall appearance.
  • Cheek implant – some patients will find that a cheekbone implant can dramatically change the facial structures in a positive way. With more defined cheekbones, patients will have a more defined look to the face. It also reduces fullness in the cheeks that might give a patient a more childlike look. The cheek implant is placed above the cheekbones to add improved definition while contouring the face for better aesthetics.
