Facial implants are used to bring balance to the presence of your face. These implants are commonly used to enhance the chin, jaw and or cheeks. Facial implants are specially formed solid materials compatible with human tissues, designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face. The exact type and size of facial implants appropriate for you requires an assessment of your goals, the features you wish to correct and your surgeon’s judgment. While any area of your face can be augmented with implants, the cheeks, chin and jaw are the most common sites for facial implants. If you are bothered by a small chin, weak jaw or lack of facial contour, plastic surgery with facial implants may benefit you.
Chin implants can increase the size and projection of a chin that is not in proportion with the forehead and mid-face. A small or recessed chin can also be described as one that seems to disappear into the neck of an individual of normal weight, rather than appearing as a distinct facial feature.
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 plan of the cheekbones. They add volume to areas that may be recessed or flat.
