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.
We have spoken of rejuvenation of the face in terms of restoring the structure of the face to a more youthful state. But what if even as a young person the patient didn’t have a strong enough chin or wanted higher cheekbones? In these cases one can use chin or cheek implants to add volume to an area that lacks it, and give the face a more balanced look. The impact of a well placed implant can be dramatic. For example, a person with a weak chin will have improved overall features with a chin implant, as it will be in better harmony with the overall facial structure.
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.
