Most individuals desire more defined facial features that are harmonious with the remainder of their face and body. Facial Implants offer an alternative to more invasive jaw surgery when patient concerns do not involve function of the jaw. Facial Implants such as chin implants, cheek implants or jaw angle implants are options for patients that wish to improve the harmony of their facial structures. A softer chin can be augmented with a chin implant to provide a natural and aesthetic relationship with the projection of their nose and other facial features. Cheek implants provide a more youthful appearance replacing the loss of bone and volume that we gradually encounter as we age. Facial Implant surgery has minimal downtime and can all be performed using incisions inside the mouth or beneath the chin to avoid any visible scars on the face. All implant material is made of synthetic FDA approved materials that feels just like any other part of your chin or jaw. Give our office a call today and book your free consultation to learn more!

Most patients experience some swelling and discomfort temporarily that is well managed with medications. There is often temporary numbness in the area of the surgery that often returns within 4-6 weeks. Downtime is usually around 1 week, but it is recommended to avoid exercising for 2-3 weeks after surgery to prevent avoidable complications such as bleeding, bruising, pain and problems healing. Physical sports or potential impact activities should be avoided for 6 weeks after to surgery to prevent implant movement while healing is occurring.
