Facial implants consist of medical-grade silicone and are placed below the surface of the skin to add instant volume. Patients can see results that are as subtle or as dramatic as they like thanks to a variety of custom shapes and sizes. Facial implants can significantly change the structure of the cheeks and/or jawbone.
Results from facial implants can be seen immediately with gradual improvement as any post-operative swelling subsides. Facial implants are considered a permanent procedure with lifelong results. Downtime is minimal, and most patients are able to return to normal activities in about 5-7 days.
Facial Fat Grafting
Facial fat grafting relocates your own fat from one area of the body (typically the stomach or thighs) to another (face and neck) to improve facial contours. Once fat is harvested, it is injected at precise depths to achieve desired volume enhancement. In experienced hands, fat grafting produces natural-looking results that most patients love.
You’ll be able to see immediate improvement from facial fat grafting. Although it is normal for some of the placed fat to be reabsorbed by the body, the procedure is long-lasting for most. You can expect anywhere from 7-10 days of downtime with this procedure.
