What are the Benefits of Facial Implants?

Facial implants are generally used to enhance the structure of your face. This can often include the cheek and/or jawbone to establish a more pleasing contour. Some people may want to emphasize their cheekbones, while others may want to improve their jawline. Facial implants are highly customizable and can help achieve your ideal appearance.

Where Facial Implants are Placed

Facial implants can generally be placed anywhere in the face where you lack volume and want to improve the overall contour of your appearance. For example, facial implants can be placed along the cheekbones for more definition, along the chin or jawline, or even under the eyes to improve eye circles for a brighter appearance. Facial implants can also be used to reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds on either side of the mouth to create a more youthful look.

The Purpose of Facial Implants

Facial implants are designed to improve the structure of your face and help you define your cheekbones, jawline, and chin in the way that you prefer. 

Facial implants are a life-long enhancement. This means that effects are permanent and don’t require ongoing maintenance (in contrast to facial fillers). Implants can also be easily removed if they fail to achieve their goal. Multiple shapes and varieties are available for easy customization.

Benefits of Facial Implants

Correction of Facial Asymmetry

Facial asymmetry is common in most people. Your features might not be perfectly symmetrical, such as one cheek being slightly different from the other or your jawline appearing a little different on either side of the face. 

Facial implants can be an effective strategy in reducing the appearance of facial asymmetry. Achieving a more symmetrical face is often possible with facial implants, leading to an improved physical appearance.

Enhancement of Facial Contours

Enhancing facial contours is another reason why many people opt for facial implants. Implants are commonly placed along the cheekbones, jawline, and chin to enhance facial features. 

Improvement of Facial Volume Loss

Facial volume loss often occurs as we age. This is usually caused by the breakdown of proteins that provide structure to our skin and redistribution of fat. As we age, we start to lose collagen, and the balance of fat in our skin changes, resulting in facial volume loss.

Facial implants are a great way to counteract facial volume loss. By targeting areas that have been affected by aging, a skilled surgeon can help you deal with the hollowness in areas such as the cheeks to create a well-defined complexion.

Am I a Candidate for Facial Implants?

Ideal candidates are healthy individuals who are interested in improving and enhancing their facial contours using a permanent material. 

Facial implants are also a great alternative for people who have previously considered other solutions, such as facial fat grafting or fillers.
