While many patients have heard of implants being used for augmenting the breasts or the buttocks, they may be unfamiliar with the use of facial implants. Just like other implants used throughout the body, facial implants help to add volume and definition where they are placed. Facial implants commonly used at Boston Plastic Surgery by Dr. Samuel Lin include chin and cheekbone implants.
Chin and cheekbone implants are used to enhance a patient’s facial structure and augment specific areas that may not have the definition patients desire. Chin implants are placed over the natural chin bone to add definition and size. This can help in defining the jawline and reducing the appearance of a double chin. Cheekbone implants are another way to improve the facial contours. Cheekbone implants can add physical structure that might be covered by fat pads. A patient that doesn’t have well-defined cheekbones may have a round, childlike appearance to their face, while the placement of implants can give a more mature and enhanced look.
Who is a candidate for facial implants?
Facial implants are appropriate for adult patients who want to augment certain areas of the face. Patients who are considering plastic surgery such as this should have realistic expectations as to what can be achieved, and should be performing the surgery to improve their self-confidence and appearance. Patients should be in good physical and emotional health before undergoing cosmetic surgeries such as this.
Will my results look natural?
Many patients approach Dr. Samuel Lin with a variety of questions about cheek and chin implants, including the look of the final results. With an experienced professional, patients will find that their finished look will be attractive and natural in appearance.
