A desire for a more defined and proportionate face is a common request. One way to address this is through the use of facial implants.
Facial implants are secured against the bone, in key areas such as the jaws, chin, or cheekbones. These implants provide lift and support of the overlying soft tissues. In doing so they can create a more defined facial appearance.
Common materials for these implants are medical silicone, and porous polyethylene.
Surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. Incisions are commonly in concealed locations, such as inside the mouth, or beneath the chin.
