If you live in the greater Houston area and you’re bothered by an underdeveloped chin or sunken cheekbones, don’t wait any longer to contact Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, where renowned Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Olga Bachilo provides state-of-the-art cosmetic surgery, including facial enhancement with implants, for residents of Houston and neighboring areas in Texas.
What Are Facial Implants?
If your facial features are not in a balanced proportion to one another, your entire facial appearance will seem somewhat “off.” Luckily, many of these imbalances can be easily repaired through simple cosmetic procedures.
Facial implants are biocompatible materials that are specially designed to augment fullness and volume in certain areas of the face in order to enhance the facial structure by correcting proportional imbalances.
While implants may be used to augment or enhance any area of the face, the chin, jaw, and cheeks are the most common sites for facial implants, with temporal and forehead implants also gaining in popularity in recent years.
If your facial features are out of proportion and you have a too-small chin, undefined jaw, or sunken cheeks, a facial enhancement procedure with facial implants may be just what you need.
Choosing the right facial implants is best done under the guidance of an experienced plastic surgeon, such as Dr. Olga Bachilo a Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, who is familiar with the subtleties of the human facial structure and knows how the different types of implants work.
After performing a thorough evaluation of your facial structure and discussing your aesthetic goals, Dr. Bachilo may advise you of which type and size of facial implant will help you achieve the look you desire.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Facial Implants?
The best candidates for plastic surgery with facial implants are healthy, non-smoking adult individuals who have some imbalance in the facial features. In adolescents, the procedure may be performed once the skull and facial bone structure have reached physical maturity, which typically occurs in the later teen years.
A chin implant may be used to increase the size and projection of a chin that is too small in size relative to the person’s other facial features. A small or undefined chin may make other facial features appear overly large by comparison and give the entire face a sense of being out of balance.
Chin Implant Revision
If you are unhappy with the chin implant you’ve selected, or if the implant has shifted from its proper location, you may consider a chin implant revision procedure. During this procedure, you may choose to remove or replace your chin implant. If the chin implant is removed, sagging skin will remain behind, and you may select al alternate procedure such as fat transfer to fill in the missing volume in the chin.
Jaw line or mandible implants are used to augment the lower third of the face, adding width and definition to the jaw line. An undefined jaw, like an undefined chin, appears to sort of slope downward instead of creating a defined angle between the ear and the chin. In some cases, both the chin and jaw are underdeveloped and contributed to facial imbalance.
Custom Jawline Implants
Dr. Bachilo designs custom implant surgeries for each of her patients, since no two individuals share the exact same facial structure. With custom jaw line implants, the jaw and chin become more pronounced, the neck and throat area are insantly rejuvenated, and the face appears more youthful and balanced.
Cheek implants fill in the area of the cheekbones where aging has caused the skin in the mid-face region to sag. Cheek implants are used to increase volume in areas that appear sunken or flat, restoring youthful contour and definition to the fac,e and enhancing radiance in the skin.
Temporal implants are used to refresh the upper portion of the face by adding subtle fullness to the temples, diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles around the eyes, and giving the patient a more alert facial expression. As aging makes the upper part of the face appear narrower, adding temporal implants to the region rejuvenates the facial appearance.
In order to enhance definition in the forehead, particularly when the forehead has begun to sag as a consequence of aging, or among male patients seeking a more masculine appearance, forehead implants provide the needed enhancement. Forehead implants rejuvenate the upper face by smoothing out lines and wrinkles in the forehead region, imparting a slight lift to the eyebrows and eyelids, and restoring youthful definition in the upper face.
