Facial implants are used to improve and enhance facial contours. Frequently,Facial Implants will help provide a more harmonious balance to your face and features so that you feel better about the way you look. There are many implants available, manufactured from a variety of materials. They may help strengthen a jaw line or bring the chin or cheekbones into balance with the rest of the face.
The areas of the face the most commonly enhanced with implants are the chin and the cheekbones. Less frequent areas are the angles of the jaw and nose.
Implant procedures are very well tolerated and can be done under twilight anesthesia. Incisions are well hidden. Recovery is in a matter of days and is relatively painless.
The best candidates for a Facial Implant

Plastic surgeons will frequently use such implants to bring better balance to the features of a younger patient. For instance, a teenage girl may want her nose reshaped or her chin brought forward so that these traits are better proportioned. The more mature patient may choose to have an implant placed in conjunction with another cosmetic procedure, like a Face Lift
Implants may also be selected to fill out a face that appears “sunken” or tired.
