Our face is a major part of how others perceive us. For those who are unsatisfied with their facial symmetry, and harmony, facial implants can provide lasting satisfaction resulting in higher self-esteem. For some, illness or accident has altered their natural face. In those more serious cases, facial implants can be used to restore the face.
What are Facial Implants?
Facial implants may be used cosmetically to correct facial symmetry, or create more striking features. In much the way makeup contouring works, facial implants create permanent contour. Facial implants may also be used following an accident or trauma to restore the structure of the face.
Facial implants are either made out of human tissue, or artificial materials such as silicone, or polythene. The implant surgery may be performed under local or general anaesthetic. Cheek and chin implants are the most commonly performed.
If human tissue is used, the results will only be semi-permanent. Silicone or polythene create permanent results.
What are the Benefits?
Many can benefit from facial implants. High cheekbones, and harmonious features are definitely a symbol of beauty in our society. Other benefits include:
Cheek, or chin implants not only improve the feature itself but indeed the entire face will be altered. Eyes may appear brighter, and more defined, or the nose may be more proportionate.
Facial implants come in many sizes and shapes to accommodate any kind of facial structure, and give you exactly the results you want, no matter how subtle or dramatic.
Facial implant surgery is safe, with a quick recovery time.
Facial implants are often paired with another cosmetic surgery such as rhinoplasty, or facelift.
As a result of improved facial structure and features, patients usually feel a big rise in self-confidence and self-esteem, which can positively impact both your personal and professional life.
Is it Right for Me?
The best way to determine if facial implants are right for you is to consult with a surgeon. However, here are a few preliminary indicators that this procedure may be right for you:
You have a weak or receding chin.
Your cheeks are sunken, or flat, and you wish to increase their definition.
You have any facial asymmetries or deformities you wish to correct.
You wish to correct any facial sagging due to aging.
You want to add definition and symmetry to your features.
Another good way to determine if facial implants are right for you is to test them out by using temporary facial fillers such as Botox or Juvederm. If you are considering any of these options, contact Cosmedical today to set up a consultation!
