All about facial implants

Designed to enhance, rejuvenate, and reconstruct facial contours, facial implants come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Most commonly used to add volume to the cheeks, increase the projection of a receding chin, enhance a weak jawline, and smooth under-eye hollows, facial implants offer permanent improvement for facial asymmetry or deficiencies. Because we all have different faces, facial implant surgery is a highly customized procedure. The implants we use are remarkably versatile and come in all shapes and sizes to fit the specific structure of each patient’s unique face. During your consultation with Dr. Bloom, he will go over the type of implant and size that is best for your aesthetic goals.  

Chin augmentation with a chin implant

While Dr. Bloom performs facial implant surgery for many different areas of the face, chin augmentation is particularly popular. It is often done in conjunction with rhinoplasty to enhance the appearance of the profile. In chin augmentation, a chin implant is surgically placed to improve a weak or recessed chin. Other areas that can have implants placed are the cheeks, under-eye area, lips, and jaw.

What are facial implants made of?

Facial implants are typically made of soft silicone, without any liquid ingredients. They are designed to be compatible with human tissues and to support the bones while also providing the volume that’s needed. Facial implants are engineered to deliver the most natural-looking and natural-feeling results possible.

Procedure & recovery

Before undergoing facial implant surgery, you will meet with Dr. Bloom so that he can determine the optimal size and type of facial implants for your personal aesthetic goals. During your initial meeting, he will discuss your questions, concerns, and desired results. He will also take you step-by-step through the procedure and recovery process so that you’re fully informed on what to expect.

During facial implant surgery, the incisions are hidden under the chin, inside the mouth, or within the lower eyelid so they are nearly invisible once healed, and the procedures themselves are relatively fast.

Facial implants can be used on their own, but Dr. Bloom may recommend additional facial plastic surgery procedures to optimize facial harmony and bring all of the facial features into proportion. You can expect swelling and bruising for up to one week, and restricted activity for 4-6 weeks to prevent implants from shifting before adequate healing has taken place.
