Facial implants are prosthetics that are implanted to certain parts of the face, to create structure and harmony between other facial characteristics. They augment, add dimension, and enhance areas of the face where tissue is deficient, either by congenital deficiency or causes that arise due to aging, such as skin laxity and loss of volume.
The cheeks, nose and chin are usually areas that can be improved to restore anatomical balance throughout the face. Your surgeon will help you select the type and size of implant to suit your expectations.
What are Facial Implants?
Implants are comprised of a biocompatible type of material and the incisions are dependent on your facial anatomy, as well as the width and height of the implant.
Other procedures can be done in conjunction with facial implants, such as blepharoplasty, liposuction to the neck and a face lift, to complement and enhance your implant.
Facial implant surgery is very specific to each individual, where length of the surgery, recovery period and specific surgery details all vary.
