Facial Implants

General Information

Facial implants are used to improve and enhance facial contours. Frequently, these implants will help provide a more harmonious balance to your face and features so that you feel better about the way you look. There are many implants available, manufactured from a variety of materials. They may help strengthen the jawline or bring the chin or cheekbones into balance with the rest of the face.

Chin Surgery

Chin implants are used to achieve overall facial balance. The size and shape of a chin can greatly affect one’s profile. Chin surgery is often recommended at the time of a Rhinoplasty to balance the size of the nose and create a harmonious side view. Improvement, not perfection, should be the desired goal. With realistic expectations, this procedure can enhance one’s appearance and boost self-esteem.

Cheek Surgery

Cheek implants are used to fill in sunken cheekbones and give a more youthful appearance. Your surgeon may recommend this procedure in combination with other facial operations such as a facelift or eyelid surgery. As with any procedure, improvement, not perfection, should be the desired goal. With realistic expectations and a positive attitude your surgery can bring personal satisfaction.
