What are facial implants?
Facial implants are designed to restore shape and proportion to the face. They are available in a wide range of shapes and styles, and can be placed in the chin, jaw, nose and cheek.
The results of facial implants can be subtle or dramatic. This may depend on your appearance before surgery and on your desired outcome. Your surgeon will discuss which of these options are most suitable for you.
Are facial implants right for me?
Always talk to your surgeon before deciding whether facial implants are right for you. They may be a good option if you want to alter the shape or contour of your face. The results of using facial implants are usually permanent.
Sometimes the placement of facial implants will be done at the same time as other facial procedures. This will be explained simply and clearly during your consultation.
All surgery comes with some degree of risk. For example, bleeding and infection are possible. Fortunately, significant complications from facial implants are usually infrequent. Don’t worry, your surgeon will fully explain potential complications during the consultation process and commit to supporting you during your recovery period.
