Facial Implant Augmentation in San Diego, CA
Facial balance is often described as the cornerstone of youth and beauty. When the facial proportions appear off-balance, it can highlight unflattering aspects of your face or cause you to look older than you actually are.
Thankfully, with modern science and the masterful touch of the Coastal Plastic Surgeons team, facial implants for the chin, jawline, or cheek can help reshape your face for balanced symmetry and angular contours.
What Are the Benefits of Facial Implants?
Facial implants are highly effective for providing balance to the overall symmetry and beauty of the face. By filling out areas that may have lost volume, such as the jaw, chin, and cheekbone, facial implants can produce a more youthful and elegant definition. Facial implants are inserted just above the bone, creating a permanent adjustment to your skeletal structure.
Superior to the longevity of fillers, facial implants offer long-lasting correction to the structure of the face. Facial implants magnify the desired area(s) of the face with a single surgical procedure, saving patients time from the recurring appointments that filler injections require to sustain their results. Facial implants are considered permanent, as they augment the shape of the face on a skeletal level.
Whether it is the chin area, cheekbones, or jawline, facial implants are a highly versatile technique that can adjust to nearly any patient’s needs. Facial implants are also a great adjunct procedure to other facial surgeries such as eyelid surgery, facelift surgery, and reshaping of the ears. The implants themselves come in a multitude of sizes to adjust to the unique beauty of each patient.
How Are Facial Implants Inserted?
The consultation is an essential part of your facial implant journey. Every patient has a different facial structure and presents unique aging concerns. Since your needs are specific to you, your consultation with Dr. Batra will allow him to develop a surgical plan tailored to your situation. During this meeting, he will review your medical history and the condition of your facial structure to see if you are a candidate for facial implant surgery.
Facial implant surgery is performed with intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. The procedure steps will change based on the area being targeted. Most facial implant incisions are made within the mouth (for easy concealment); however, some chin or jawline implants may require an incision beneath the chin. The facial implants are inserted through these incisions and repositioned for an accurate and desirable shape.
Facial implants can be combined with other facial surgeries to accentuate your face’s youthful and balanced appearance. Facial implant surgery is most effective in correcting issues with volume, definition, and alignment. Yet, additional treatments, such as blepharoplasty, otoplasty, and facelift surgery, can provide more comprehensive aesthetic goals.
