Facial implants are specially formed solid materials that are compatible with human tissues and can help restore balance to the face. Whether a more defined chin or rounded cheek bones are desired, facial implants are designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face.
People who feel as if they have a small chin, weak jaw or lack of facial contour, are perfect candidates for facial implants. While any area of your face can receive an augmentation with facial implants, the cheek and chin are the most common sites for enhancement with the use of facial implants.
A chin implant is usually positioned inside the tissue along the jawline and the size and shape can be adjusted with the rest of the face. This allows your cosmetic surgeon to create a more attractive and balanced facial proportion. Cheek implant surgery is used to change the contour of the cheek bones. This procedure helps to address small cheek bones that lack definition, asymmetry to cheek bones or protruding cheek bones that do not seem to match other facial features.
