FACIAL IMPLANTS OVERVIEW
The appearance of your face is determined by three basic components: skin, soft tissues and underlying facial bones. Defined facial features, visible contours and natural angles that are proportionate all create structural balance in your face and a more attractive appearance.
If the structure of your face is disproportionate—the chin is recessed, the jaw undefined or cheeks are ﬂat—it can significantly affect your self image. If you are bothered by a small chin, weak jaw or lack of facial contour, plastic surgery with facial implants may benefit you.

UNDERSTANDING THE PROCEDURE
Facial implants bring balance and better proportion to the structural appearance of your face. They define your face by increasing projection and creating more distinct features. Facial implants are specially formed solid materials designed to enhance or build up the structure of your face, like your chin, cheeks, or jaw. The precise type of implants best suited for you requires an evaluation of your goals, the features you wish to correct and your surgeon’s judgment.
Chin implants can increase the size and projection of a chin that does not project 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. Cheek implants are specially formed solid materials designed to enhance or build up the chin.
Cheek implants increase the projection of the cheekbones. They add volume to areas which may be recessed or ﬂat.
Jaw implants increase the width of the lower third of your face. Much like the chin, a weak jaw is not well-defined and distinct from the neck, or slopes rather than angles from the ear to the chin. In some cases, both the chin and jaw can contribute to facial imbalance.
If symmetry among facial features is part of your goal, facial implants may be recommended to augment more than one facial region. It’s important to remember that all of our faces are asymmetric to some degree and your results may not be completely symmetric. The goal is to create balance and proportion. Your procedure may be performed alone, or as a complement to other facial contouring procedures such as nose or ear surgery.
