Perfect facial symmetry and contours of the face are rarely seen naturally in adult men and women. In addition, aging skin can make patients look older than they really are. If you live in the New York, NY area and are interested in improving the appearance of the face, Dr. Thomas Romo III may suggest facial implants.
What is a facial implant?
A facial implant is a special prosthetic that is inserted into the face during plastic surgery to provide a better definition of areas such as the chin or cheeks. This, in turn, can help in achieving symmetry and addressing certain deficiencies. When patients think of implants in plastic surgery, it often brings to mind breast implants used in augmentation procedures. Implants for the face can be used in a similar manner to adding volume and address disproportions that may negatively impact the overall appearance and contours. At Romo Plastic Surgery, we utilize silicone implants approved by the FDA for safety and effectiveness.
What are the benefits of facial implants?
Because the skin is naturally thin, it can make imperfections of the underlying facial structure, including the muscles and bones, more visible than other areas of the body. Deficiencies and abnormalities are highly visible and more exposed on the facial area. Facial implants allow patients to build up specific areas of the face for more balanced and noticeable contours, which in turn can reduce the appearance of hollowness and sagging skin. Additionally, implants can be used to ensure harmony, balance, and overall symmetry which is not always naturally present.
The team of Romo Plastic Surgery encourages patients of the New York area to contact the office and schedule a consultation to learn more about the benefits of this and other face and body contouring solutions available. Facial implants are just one of many treatment options for patients to consider when they visit our facility.
