Facial Implants

What are Facial Implants?

Facial implants, commonly made of materials like silicone or porous polyethylene, are surgically inserted into specific areas of the face to enhance or augment facial contours. Designed to improve volume, shape, or definition, these implants target features like the cheeks, chin, or jawline. Varieties include cheek implants (malar or submalar), chin implants (mentoplasty), and jawline implants (mandibular angle or jaw angle implants). This procedure enhances facial harmony, balance, and proportions, resulting in a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance. Under the expertise of Dr. Day at Pacific Sound Plastic Surgery, patients receive personalized care and support, achieving natural-looking results that enhance their facial features and boost confidence.

Dissatisfaction with the size, shape, or proportion of facial features like the cheeks, chin, or jawline may prompt consideration for this procedure. Candidates should be in good overall health and maintain realistic expectations regarding the outcomes.

What to Expect During Your
Facial Implant Procedure

Typically, the procedure commences with the creation of discreet incisions in carefully chosen locations on the face. Through these incisions, implants are delicately inserted into the desired facial areas to enhance volume, shape, or definition. Once the implants are in place, the incisions are meticulously closed. The entire process usually takes a few hours, with Dr. Day at Pacific Sound Plastic Surgery ensuring precise techniques and optimal outcomes for each patient.
