Common Face Implants

Chin Implants- Chin implants can augment the size and projection of a chin that isn’t in proportion with the forehead and mid-face. A small chin can also be described as one which seems to disappear into the neck of a person of normal weight, rather than appearing a distinct facial feature.

Jaw Implants- Jaw implants are commonly done to increase the width of the lower third of the face. In some cases, both jaw and chin can contribute to the facial imbalance.

Cheek Implants- Cheek implants are usually done to increase the projection of your cheekbones. They add volume to t he areas that may be flat or recessed.

Ideal Candidate

The surgery with facial implants is best performed on individuals whose head and skull have already reached physical maturity, which often occurs in late adolescence. Best candidate for facial implants should:

Be physically healthy
Have a positive outlook and particular goals in mind for the improvement of facial contours
Not smoke

Procedure

The procedure for face implants may include the following:

At first, you are administered with local anesthesia so that you remain comfortable during the procedure.

Cheek Implants- Cheek implants are commonly placed through the incision in the mouth. While performed with other procedures, optional incisions may be recommended including placement through the incision inside the lower eyelid or one within hairline.
Chin Implants- For this, the incision may be inside the mouth, along the crease that joins the lower lip and gums. An incision beneath the chin is an alternative.
Jaw Implants- Jaw implants are commonly placed through the mouth with incisions inside the mouth, back along the jawline at the crease where the inside of the cheek and gums meet. The incisions will then be closed with absorbable sutures or stitches that are removed within one or two weeks following the surgery.
