What Are Facial Implants?
Colorado Facial Plastic Surgery offers a wide variety of services to enhance facial contours and appearance, including facial implants. Made of silicone or another safe, biocompatible material, facial implants are placed to revamp the structure of the cheeks, jaw, chin, and other portions of the face. Jaw, cheek, and chin implants are customized in size and shape to address the unique goals of each individual patient. We often use them to reconstruct facial features after trauma, create a stronger jawline, improve sunken cheeks, and bring balance and symmetry to the facial profile. If you wish to counteract volume loss, strengthen a weak chin, or have other facial enhancement desires, schedule a visit at our Englewood, CO facility and learn if facial implants can help sculpt and rejuvenate your appearance!
Facial Implants Reviews
"I sold craniomaxillofacial implants for a major medical company for 10yrs, working with numerous plastic surgeons around the state. Last February, a dog bit my nose almost completely off. I immediately called Dr. Imola. He made room for me in his busy schedule, met me at his clinic the next day, and refined the repairs that were done in the ER at Swedish in such a way that literally saved my nose. He is an incredibly gifted surgeon. In addition, his staff is sincere in their desire to improve the quality of life for Dr. Imola's patients; and, after several laser treatments with Lisa upstairs, the scar on my nose isn't even noticeable anymore. "Thank you" doesn't cut it; this man's talent, and his commitment to his work, quite literally saved me from a life of insecurity and sadness. I can never express my gratitude enough. Thank you, Dr. Imola!!"- M.L. / Google / Feb 02, 2021
How Do Facial Implants Work?
Denver patients who have hollowed cheeks, a recessed or small chin, a weak jaw, or other disproportionate facial features may be good candidates for facial implants at Colorado Facial Plastic Surgery. This type of procedure may take between 1 – 2 hours to complete and is generally performed on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia, local anesthesia, or IV sedation. Facial implants are inserted through incisions made in the mouth, or within the facial tissue, and are then precisely positioned by our skilled facial plastic and reconstructive surgeons. Optimal healing generally occurs about 6 – 12 weeks following facial enhancement surgery. The results of jaw, chin, and cheek implants can bring dramatic or subtle improvements to your facial appearance that can last for several years.
Facial implants FAQs
What if I have a double chin?
Chin implants can provide patients with a stronger jawline that makes them feel more confident. If you have a double chin, implants may not offer the solution you want. Another procedure at Colorado Facial Plastic Surgery can remove the extra fat and give you slimmer contours. Learn about our different cosmetic techniques during a consultation.
When will normal sensations return?
It's normal to have some numbness after getting chin or cheek augmentation. Once the facial implant settles into position, these side effects should dissipate. If you have concerns about sensitivity or numbness in the area, call our aesthetic team in Englewood, CO.
Will I have visible scars?
Some people are concerned about visible scars after getting facial implants. Because most incisions are made on the inside of the mouth, any potential scars are hidden from view. Our clinic is dedicated to providing excellent results so you can enjoy your look long-term.
