Plastic surgeons use facial implants to improve and enhance facial contours.
Frequently, these 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 jawline or bring the chin or
cheekbones into balance with the rest of the face.<
Facial implants can enhance your appearance and
bolster your self esteem. If you are looking for improvement, not perfection,
in your appearance and are realistic in your expectations, you may find that
a facial implant is the right choice for you.
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. For
example, during a facelift, a patient may wish to have implants placed over
the cheekbones to help restore a more youthful appearance. Implants may also
be selected to fill out a face that appears "sunken" or tired.
