Benefits of Custom Facial Implants

Custom Facial Implants Vs. Generic Facial Implants

Unlike out-of-the-box implants, the benefits of custom facial implants include an individualized, tailored result, the ability to achieve perfect symmetry, and an exact fit. Facial bones are not perfectly smooth, so out-of-the-box generic implants are often not an exact fit due to bone irregularities, which can result in less-than-perfect results. Dr. Chang uses exact measurements and specifications to match each patient's anatomy to achieve the right dimensions for facial symmetry with one-of-a-kind customized implants.

Facial Implants Vs. Injectable Fillers

Dermal fillers can make temporary, moderate improvements, but are not an ideal replacement for bone. Facial implants are the best solution for patients looking for longer lasting, defined results. Many patients find facial implants to be a lifelong solution to problem areas on their face that contribute to displeasing asymmetry and lack of definition.

Types of Facial Implants

Facial implants are most often used to create definition in the cheekbones, chin, and jawline. While these are the most popular placements for facial implants, since Dr. Chang creates custom-designed facial implants she can meet a variety of aesthetic needs and goals.

Cheek Implants

High cheekbones are a universal signifier of youth and beauty, but even if genetics did not deliver sculpted cheekbones to you, facial implants can add definition to the midface.

Chin Implants

A recessed or “weak” chin can have a negative effect on facial harmony and proportions. A chin implant can add balance to the face.

Jaw Implants

If you would like a more defined jawline, jaw implants can deliver a naturally sculpted look.

What to Expect From Your Facial Implant Surgery

Preparing for Facial Implants

At your consultation appointment, Dr. Chang will examine your facial structure, review your medical history, and discuss your aesthetic goals. If you are a candidate and you decide that facial implant surgery is right for you, she will take measurements and advise you on pre-surgical instructions.

Your Facial Implant Procedure

Dr. Chang uses Vectra 3D imaging and a CT scan for precise, highly tailored measurements. Individualized measurements provide the starting blueprint for her to design and build each facial implant. By starting with your skeletal anatomy and measurements, she builds an implant that fits your current anatomy seamlessly. She custom designs the implant for each patient based on their original skeletal anatomy. This highly detailed process ensures the implant will align perfectly to the patient's bone structure for a seamless fit down to the micro-millimeter.

Facial implant surgery is typically an outpatient procedure performed with general anesthesia. Occasionally, local anesthesia with light sedation may be used. Incision placement will vary depending on the treatment area, and Dr. Chang will take care to make incisions where they can easily be hidden. For example, a chin implant may be placed through an incision inside the lower lip.

Recovery After Your Facial Implant Procedure

Recovery time will depend on a number of factors, including the type of implant and any accompanying procedures. The most common side effects during recovery are mild swelling and bruising; most patients can resume normal activities within a few days after surgery. 1

Frequently Asked Questions About Facial Implants

Can facial implants be combined with other cosmetic procedures?

Yes, facial implantation is often combined with other facial cosmetic surgery, such as a facelift, rhinoplasty, a brow lift, or blepharoplasty. At your consultation appointment, we can create a personalized treatment plan to meet all of your aesthetic needs.

What are facial implants made of?

Most facial implants are made of medical-grade silicone. Dr. Chang will discuss your facial implant options with you.

How long will my results last?

Facial implants are permanent, so your results can last a lifetime. That said, your aging process will continue. Some patients feel that their results are optimized by ongoing non-surgical procedures such as BOTOX. Facial implants are also easily removed by your surgeon if needed.
