Facial Implants

Facial implants are designed to augment the structure of your face. While they may accentuate any area, they are most commonly used in the cheeks to increase the projection of the cheekbones and midface, in the jaw to increase the width of the lower third of your face, and in the chin to increase its size and projection so that it is in proper proportion with the forehead and nose.

The Procedure

The placement of the incisions for implants will depend on their location, but most implants for the jaw, chin, or cheek are placed through the mouth with the incisions made inside your mouth. There are some exceptions—where the incision for a chin implant can be made just beneath the chin, and incisions for cheek implants can be made inside the lower eyelid or within the hairline. Recovery can vary depending on the implant, but in general, you can expect to experience some initial swelling, numbness, and/or discoloration. Even though the results are immediate, they will become more visible once the swelling subsides. You may need to wear bandages during the initial phases of healing to keep the implants in their proper position. The timing of return to normal activities will vary depending on the implant.
