Patients who seek implants are looking to enhance one of their features. Those who seek facial implants often feel like their face is lacking something. Facial implants are specially formed solid materials that are compatible with human tissues and can help restore balance to the face. Whether a more defined chin or rounded cheek bones are desired, facial implants are designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face.
If you look at your face and find that you are bothered by a small chin, weak jaw, or lack of facial contour, facial implants may be the right choice for you. While any area of your face can receive an augmentation with facial implants, the cheek and chin are the most common sites for enhancement with the use of facial implants.
Chin implant surgery addresses a weak or even a protruding chin. If your chin that has lost volume due to the aging process, or your chin is in need of additional definition to balance other facial features, facial implants can be surgically placed to alter the face’s overall appearance. A chin implant is usually positioned inside the tissue along the jawline and the size and shape can be adjusted with the rest of the face. This allows your cosmetic surgeon to create a more attractive and balanced facial proportion.
Cheek implant surgery is used to change the contour of the cheek bones by adding implants. This procedure helps to address small cheek bones that lack definition, asymmetry to cheek bones, or protruding cheek bones that do not seem to match other facial features. The placement of cheek implants may be the only procedure performed, but typically it is combined with other procedures, such as a brow lift, to achieve an attractive, refreshed, and natural balance to your facial features.
