The placement of facial implants represents a technique for the enhancement of facial shape, balance and symmetry. Following a careful pre-operative facial assessment including precise measurements and radiologic evaluation, appropriate implants are selected for facial enhancement. Employing a brief general or intravenous sedation anesthetic,State Licensed, Nationally Accredited Ambulatory Surgical Facility, (see ‘about Keystone Surgery Center’) these implants can then be precisely placed to augment a receding chin, add prominence to cheekbones or reshape a “weak” jawline. In addition to cosmetic enhancement of facial features, implants can also be employed to correct certain congenital (or birth) defects or reconstruct facial features following traumatic injury or tumor removal. Recovery time is generally brief, with patients resuming their usual activities within 3 to 5 days.
Facial implants help restore a harmonious balance to facial features thereby enhancing confidence and self-esteem.
