What Are Facial Implants?
Facial implants are a facial augmentation technique that can enhance the shape of the face to improve facial balance and overall appearance. Most often, facial implants are used to enhance the chin and jawline area. This is common among men who use chin or jaw implants to enhance the jawline and achieve a more sculpted, masculine profile. Facial implants are also popular among women, however, who gravitate towards cheek implants to permanently improve volume in the midface. At Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates, we offer jaw implants, chin implants, and cheek implants to help patients achieve their cosmetic goals.
How Much Do Facial Implants Cost?
The cost of your facial implant procedure at Plastic Surgery and Dermatology Associates will depend on a number of factors. During your initial consultation, we will review your treatment goals in order to develop a treatment plan that is tailored to your personal needs. Once this treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the exact cost of your procedure. In an effort to keep our treatments accessible, we are proud to accept CareCredit® financing in addition to traditional payment methods.
What is Jawline Surgery?
Jawline surgery uses a number of different techniques to enhance the jawline and approve the overall appearance of the face. In some cases, jawline surgery can be performed to reduce the size of the jaw, shaving off part of the bone to produce the desired results. This can sculpt the jawline and help patients who feel that they have large jaws. Alternatively, jaw implants can be inserted to enhance the jawline.
What Are Chin Implants?
Chin implants are attached to the chin to enhance its size and shape. This is a popular option for patients who feel that they have small or “weak” chins. For many patients, the ideal size of the chin lines up with the length of the nose. Chin implants can help patients achieve this proportional balance while improving the overall shape of the face.
What Are Cheek Implants?
Cheek implants are a permanent cheek augmentation method that can produce a lifted, voluminous appearance in the midface. Other options, such as fat transfers or dermal fillers, will wear off in a few months or years. Cheek implants are a long-lasting solution that can enhance facial balance for years.
How Are Facial Implants Inserted?
All facial surgeries are performed using general anesthesia to ensure optimal patient safety and comfort. With most facial implants, incisions can be made inside the mouth to prevent any visible scarring. In some cases, chin or jaw implants may require an incision underneath the chin, but this will also be well-hidden. Once incisions are made, the desired implant will be inserted and affixed to the bone, ensuring secure and natural-looking results. Once this is accomplished, the incisions are closed and the treatment will be complete.
What is the Recovery Like After Facial Implants?
The recovery from facial implants will vary depending on the type of implant received. If your facial implant is close to the jaw or mouth, you may have to adjust your dietary habits during recovery. In addition, you will have to avoid sleeping directly on the treatment area or participating in activities that could cause injury. During your consultation, Dr. Mirali will provide you with specific recovery instructions based on your personal treatment plan.
Are Facial Implants Permanent?
Facial implants are a popular alternative to dermal fillers and other treatments because they produce permanent results. You can expect your facial implants to last a lifetime.
