When we think about plastic surgery, we often think of breast implants or a tummy tuck, but a chin implant can have a tremendous impact in improving our appearance as well. Chin and cheek implants are often referred to together as facial implants, and they can help your face look younger and more balanced.
What Are Facial Implants?
Chin and cheek implants do for your face what breast implants might do for your body—they augment, reconstruct, or rejuvenate the facial shape. Our Lubbock office makes all shapes and sizes of these implants available to ensure the implants provide a balanced and proportional improvement to the face, not a manipulated or unnatural leap toward a false perfection.
Why Would I Get Facial Implants?
Science has shown that we define a face as beautiful when it is balanced and symmetrical. Faces that appear top-heavy due to a large forehead or nose may benefit from a chin implant to achieve greater balance. Facial implants can give an enhanced or stronger looking cheekbone or jawline. If you are losing contour or structure in your face due to aging, facial implants can repair this. And, anyone struggling with natural or injury caused asymmetry or deformities can find confidence through corrections provided by facial implants. Counseling with your board-certified surgeon is necessary for ensuring that you select the right procedure for your goals.
When considering surgery of any kind, it is important to be aware of the risks. Like all surgeries, there is a risk of post-surgical infection following a facial implant. Damage to facial nerves and musculature is possible. And, the structure or location of the implant may alter over time.
