• 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. 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.

    Facial implants candidates

    Plastic surgery with facial implants is best performed on people whose head and skull have reached physical maturity, which generally occurs in late adolescence.

    You may be a good candidate for facial implants if you:

    • Are physically healthy
    • Do not smoke
    • Have a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for improvement of facial contours

    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 recovery

    During your facial implants recovery, bandages or dressings may be applied to keep the surgical site clean and to support the position of the implant during initial healing once your procedure is finished.

    You will be given specific instructions about how to care for the surgical site, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health, and when to follow up with your plastic surgeon.

    Facial implants results

    Results are immediate, although the initial healing phase may include localized swelling, discoloration, numbness or discomfort. In addition, facial movements may be temporarily restricted or impaired. These are common conditions. The final results of your facial implants will be long-lasting!
