Creating elegant, sculpted definition.
A facial implant for the chin or cheeks is designed to add volume and a more defined appearance. Implants can help correct a recessed chin, creating youthful jawline definition.
Implants can also be placed in the cheeks, lifting and adding volume. These procedures are highly customizable, and the implants come in many sizes and shapes. Dr. Afrooz approaches each implant with his patient’s desires in mind, and uses his extensive training in facial aesthetic balance to create natural-looking results. The material of the implant is biocompatible, and the body accepts it readily.
Beauty is balance.
Facial implants can dramatically improve your facial balance. Custom facial implants can produce the following benefits:
- Correct a receding chin
- Enhance a small chin
- Enhance the jawline
- Create greater jawline definition
- Create cheek volume
- Enhance facial balance
- A chin implant can make the nose appear smaller
The surgery – what to expect.
During a facial implant procedure, incisions are made in the area in which the implant is going to be inserted. For cheeks, the implant is placed through incisions within the mouth, leaving no visible scars. For a chin implant, the incision may be within the mouth or under the chin structure.
After placing the implant correctly, the incisions are closed and bandaged. This process can take up to two hours, depending upon the procedure. If you are combining other facial surgeries with your facial implants, the same incisions may be used for both procedures, such as removing excess under-chin fat.
A short recovery time.
Recovery from your Miami facial implants is generally very swift. As with all surgical procedures, we recommend getting as much rest as possible following your treatment. You may experience swelling or bruising for a few weeks after surgery. Facial implants are designed to be long-lasting, but the results can vary depending upon the type of implant.
