Why consider facial implant surgery with Dr. Weber in Denver?

Properly positioned, facial implants can add a look of youthful fullness, correct imperfections in the facial profile, and/or restore overall facial balance by creating more distinct structural features where necessary.

Facial implant surgery can be performed as a stand-alone procedure, or it may be combined with other cosmetic procedures as needed. Once successfully implanted, the implants appear like other natural bone structures within the face, providing a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Review - Facial Implants

What does the facial implant procedure entail?

Many patients seek facial implants to correct an aspect of their appearance that they don’t like, such as a weak chin. Poor balance and facial contours can be caused by either genetics or the ill effects of aging. By placing a small carefully, contoured implant under the skin, a skilled plastic surgeon can create a more attractive profile, or balance and improve the overall appearance of the patient’s facial features.

If you have a receding or weak chin and wish to add volume and projection for a stronger jawline, enhance the fullness and definition of your cheekbones, or want to add pleasing proportions and contours to your facial features you may want to consider a facial implant procedure.

Crafted from flexible and biocompatible, non-migrating materials (meaning they will not move once inserted into place), facial implants can be added to augment a variety of facial areas, effectively addressing specific facial concerns such as a weak jaw or chin, or to add pleasing contours to the face.

Facial implants require a small incision (which will be hidden under existing skin creases, under a hairline or lip, or otherwise camouflaged to create a natural looking result). The specific method will be determined by the exact location of the implant.

What can I expect after a facial implant procedure?

Everyone heals at a different rate. Recovery and healing time will also depend on the specific procedure, as well as the exact location and technique used to place your facial implants. In general, your recovery may require 5-7 days of rest, and you may experience some swelling, slight bruising, or tenderness to the area where the implant has been placed. Dr. Weber advises that you avoid strenuous activity for the first week following your procedure to allow the implants to properly adhere in place.

You may also receive additional instructions such as icing the operative site, keeping your head elevated, signs and symptoms to be on the lookout for, any necessary medications, dressings and/or follow up care. Before undergoing any surgical procedure, your doctor will discuss the potential risks and benefits so that you may make an informed decision regarding your care.
