What Are Facial Implants?

Facial implants are a cosmetic enhancement option involving the insertion of solid, biocompatible materials into specific facial areas to augment contours and create a more balanced and harmonious appearance. This technique is commonly used for features such as the chin, cheeks, or jawline, achieving natural-looking results that enhance facial symmetry and proportions.

About Your Facial Implant Procedure

After a detailed consultation with Dr. Bolitho to ensure your questions are answered, he meticulously plans out a tailor-made procedure to get your desired results. Once you are ready for surgery, he conducts the following steps:

  1. Anesthesia: You'll receive anesthesia to ensure a comfortable experience during the procedure.
  2. Incision: Small incisions are made in inconspicuous areas, often within the mouth or along natural facial creases.
  3. Implant Placement: The chosen implant is carefully positioned and secured within the targeted facial area.
  4. Incision Closure: Sutures or clips are used to close the incisions, contributing to minimal scarring.
  5. Recovery: Initial swelling and discomfort are common but diminish over a few weeks. Full healing and implant settling may take a few months.
  6. Follow-up: Regular postoperative appointments allow Dr. Bolitho to monitor your progress and ensure optimal results.
