Facial implants are an effective surgical technique to build out a specific facial feature that appears under-sized in relation to other facial features. Facial implants are typically used to augment the cheeks, chin, and nose. They can also be used to enhance the jaw line and make the overall facial structure more balanced. Available in a wide range of sizes and styles for the chin, jaw, nose and cheek, implants add or restore contour and/or proportion to the face. See all facial implants before and after photos.
One of the key beauty points of the face can be well-defined and enhanced cheek bones. Cheek implants can help to augment the appearance of cheeks, if the patient is bothered by a sunken looking mid face or a vacuous look under the eyes. Cheek implants can improve the maximal projection point to restore facial balance.
Some people have a narrow face, which can be improved in proportion and made to appear wider by using these implants. Similarly, people who are looking for a more angular looking face can benefit from cheek implant surgery when the gap between the implants is reduced.
If the chin is disproportionately smaller or bigger, it can cause an illusion of an oversized or under-sized nose, and spoil the overall balance and proportion of the face. An unusually long chin can make the upper face appear sunken. Small adjustments with chin implants can lead to dramatic improvements in facial harmony.
An experienced plastic surgeon will make sure that the most appropriate size and shape of chin implants is chosen to suit the patient’s aesthetic goals. The implants are typically placed in the area above the front of the jawbone for best outcomes.
Nose implants can be used to alter or reconstruct parts of the nose and make it more proportionate with the rest of the face. In many cases, chin, and nose implant procedures may be performed together to achieve the best overall facial balance. Synthetic implants made of high strength silicone are most commonly used for nose implant procedures.
