Facial implants are specially formed solid materials compatible with human tissues, designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face. They are meant to be permanent and are often secured with a small screw to prevent movement in the future. The precise type, size, and shape of the facial implants best suited for you requires an evaluation of your goals, the features you wish to correct and Dr. Monasebian’s surgical judgment.
While any area of your face can be augmented with implants, the cheeks, chin, and jaw are the most common sites for facial implants. If you are bothered by a small chin, weak jaw or lack of facial contour, augmentation with facial implants may benefit you. The procedures are done as an ambulatory patent and usually require sedation or general anesthesia. During your consultation with Dr. Monasebian the procedure(s) will be discussed in more detail.
