With the popularity of cosmetic fillers, it has become easy to assume that ideal facial symmetry is just a syringe away. We can’t argue the fact that synthetic fillers, and even fat grafting, are exceptional forms of facial rejuvenation. The thing is, not everyone who seeks such treatment does so to correct the normal signs of aging on their face. In our Denver office, we also perform facial contouring with solid silicone or porous polyethylene plastic implants for various parts of the face.

Who is a good candidate for facial implants?

Facial implants are suitable for the patient who is generally healthy and interested in the long-term correction of facial asymmetries in the cheeks, lips, jawline, or temple area. In addition to being a longer-lasting solution than even the best dermal filler, one of the notable advantages of facial implants is that each enhances the actual physical structure of the face. By adding solid yet supple structure, a facial implant can add dimension to the face that has been lost, or that never existed. For this reason, implants are well-suited to individuals whose anatomical structure never reached a state at which contours developed.

What Various Facial Implants Do

  • Chin implants add projection and angles to the jawline.
  • Jaw implants add symmetry by widening the lowest bony structure of the face. Thus, the jawline becomes more defined and angular.
  • Cheek implants are an excellent long-term solution for recessed, hollow, and flattened cheeks.

Facial implants are a safe and efficient treatment for enhancing the face in a more dramatic and long-lasting way. Because there are risks associated with cosmetic surgery, it is best to obtain information and treatment regarding facial implants from a board-certified facial plastic surgeon who has extensive familiarity not only with facial anatomy but with the nuances of various facial implants.
