Facial implants are specially formed solid materials compatible with human tissues, designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face.
The precise type and size of facial implants best suited for you requires an evaluation of your goals, the features you wish to correct and your surgeon’s judgment.
If you are bothered by a small chin, weak jaw or lack of facial contour, plastic surgery with facial implants may benefit you.
While any area of your face can be augmented with implants, the cheek or malar area, chin and jaw are the most common sites for facial implants.
Chin implants can increase the size and projection of a chin that is not in proportion with the forehead and mid-face.
Jaw implants increase the width of the lower third of your face.
Much like the chin, a weak jaw can be thought of as one that is not well defined and distinct from the neck or one that slopes rather than angles from the ear to the chin.
In some cases, both the chin and jaw can contribute to facial imbalance.
Cheek implants increase the projection of the cheekbones. They add volume to areas that may be recessed or flat.
