What is a Facial Implant and what are the best options?

Facial Implants are specifically designed to semi-permanently or permanently improve the appearance of your facial area, depending on the type of procedure. To achieve optimal symmetry in facial features, several options in combination may be recommended to augment more than one area.

Am I a good candidate for facial implants?

Every face is naturally asymmetric to some degree. It is sometimes impossible achieve exact symmetry of the face. Though near perfect results can be achieved all while maintaining a natural look.
Facial implants add balance and proportion throughout the facial area. The most common types of facial implants used to achieve these goals are Chin implants, Jaw implants, and Cheek implants.
Facial implants are specifically designed to improve the physical structure of your face. They are formed from solid and bio-compatible materials that help to enhance and/or augment your facial area. The type of implant most suitable for you is determined through an evaluation of desired results and goals. Your surgeon will make suggestions upon consultation to help you reach your goals.

Chin Implants

Chin Implants are common for enhanced proportion of the chin in relation to the mid-face and forehead. Chin implants are often used to increase the projection and size of the chin area.

Jaw Implants

Jaw Implants increase the width of the lower third of your facial area, strengthening and defining a more distinct jaw line.

In some cases a naturally weak jaw can appear poorly defined and disproportionate to the neck area, thus causing an imbalanced appearance. Jaw implants are used to restore or enhance balance in proportion.

Oftentimes the case, significant weight loss can cause facial laxity (loosened skin) in the facial skin which may be improved with jaw implants.

Cheek Implants

Cheek Implants are useful in adding volume to cheek areas which may appear flattened or recessed. Imbalance or asymmetry in the cheek area is improved with cheek implants through use of popular fillers and implants such as Sculptra to balance asymmetric cheek bones.
The most common reason patient’s choose cosmetic fillers and facial implants is to improve facial structure and create a more balanced look. If you feel there is too much imbalance in your facial symmetry and this is a significant concern in appearance, a minimally invasive treatment plan may add self confidence and even enhance self-esteem.
