Facial implants are designed to augment, reconstruct, or rejuvenate your facial contours. They are available in a wide range of sizes and styles and restore contour and/or proportion to your face. Facial implants can be used to augment your chin and jaw, to provide the sculpted cheekbones that you desire, or to supplement the tear trough area.

When to Consider Facial Implants

  • If you have a weak, receding chin and wish to make it more projecting and improve your jawline
  • If you wish to enhance the definition and fullness of your cheeks
  • If you wish to restore contour and proportion to your facial structures made deficient by aging
  • If you wish to correct facial asymmetry or deformities resulting from injury or congenital conditio 

Are you a good candidate for facial implants?

The following are some common reasons why you may want to consider facial implants:

  • You have a weak, receding chin and wish to improve the appearance of your profile by increasing the projection of your chin
  • You have an undefined or weak jawline that does not help frame your face or distinguish your neck
  • You wish to enhance the definition and fullness of your cheeks
  • You wish to restore contour and proportion to your facial structure made deficient by aging
  • You wish to correct facial deformities resulting from injury or congenital conditions

There are many alternatives that can alter the structure of your face. Along with facial implants, your aesthetic plastic surgeon might also discuss options such as fat grafting, bone repositioning, bone grafting and dermal grafting.

If you are in good general health, have a positive attitude and realistic expectations, you are most likely a good candidate for this procedure.

How is a facial implants procedure performed?

The procedure for placing facial implants follows a similar pattern for all facial areas.

  • Surgical markings are drawn on the face to assist the surgeon in implant placement, and to indicate location of underlying structures to avoid.
  • The patient is positioned supine (face-up) on the operating table and general anesthesia is administered, along with a local anesthetic.
  • The surgeon makes a small incision near where the implant will be placed.
  • A pocket is made in the facial tissue in which to insert the implant.
  • The implant is gently inserted using a sterilized clamp.
  • The incision is closed with sutures and may be bandaged or taped.
