Improving Your Looks With Facial Implant Surgery

Improving Your Looks With Facial Implant SurgeryIf you are looking to improve the overall look and symmetry of your face, you may want to consider facial implants.

Facial implants are specially formed solid materials compatible with human tissues. They are designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face.

If you are bothered by a small chin, week jaw, or lack of facial contour, cosmetic surgery with facial implants may be your answer.

A good candidate for facial implant surgery is someone in good health who has reasonable expectations. Before the surgery, you will have a consultation with Dr. McLain. He will discuss your medical history and talk about your expectations and what is best for you.

Cheek Augmentation

The goal of cheek augmentation is to add volume and lift to the cheeks. As we age, it is common to lose volume in our face, and the skin begins to sag. You may also consider this procedure if you have cheeks that are considered flat or thin.

Your cheek augmentation will result in fuller and possibly softer-appearing cheeks. In many cases, the cheeks also appear lifted.

Chin Augmentation

The goal of chin augmentation is to enhance the contours of the chin, jawline and neck, thereby improving the overall facial appearance.

Chin implants are the most common type of chin augmentation. The placement of synthetic implants around the existing chin bone alters the underlying shape of the face, which enhances the balance of other facial features.

If you have a receding chin, this procedure will give your face a more contoured look. Chin implants can be placed either through small incisions made inside the mouth or under the chin. Dr. McLain will discuss with you what is best for your procedure.

Restoring facial harmony, or creating it where it is needed is the goal of cheek and chin implant surgery. Dr. McLain will advise you on what is best for the goals you are hoping to achieve.
