What Is Involved in Facial Implant Surgery?
- Posted on: Feb 26 2018
Whether you’ve been dissatisfied with the balance of your facial features for a long time, or you’ve noticed some unwelcome changes as you age, facial implant surgery is an option you may want to consider. It can help enhance particular features so they’re in better balance while helping in areas that have lost fat through the years.
What are facial implants?
Facial implant surgery uses materials that are compatible with your body’s own tissues to enhance the appearance of your face. By augmenting specific areas, your facial plastic surgeon can help balance your facial features.
This type of procedure is often used to enhance an area that you may have always been less-than-satisfied with, such as your chin. And as people age, they develop volume loss and nose plane of projection. Facial implants can be used to plump up these sunken areas and restore a more youthful appearance.
What results can you expect?
Facial implants can be used to improve the following issues:
- Changes in facial appearance that make your features look droopy
- A sunken appearance
- Cheeks that have experienced sagging and make you look older
- A “weak” chin or misshapen or less-than-prominent jawline
- Support for the bridge of the nose
- Nose tip that’s ptotic “falling” look
Who is a good candidate for facial implant surgery?
You may be a good candidate for facial implants if you’d like to improve your appearance in a specific area. Facial implant surgery offers a permanent solution, since it provides a support structure for your facial features that won’t change over time.
This procedure also can be performed in conjunction with a facelift if, for example, you’d like to have a lower facelift along with a chin implant.
Implants are often used in patients who want to treat the following areas:
