As an otolaryngologist specializing in head and neck surgery, Dr. Sedgh is highly familiar with the facial area and has comprehensive knowledge and experience with the anatomy of the face. This guarantees a safe, successful procedure that will yield superior results.
To begin the procedure, you will be sedated with either general or intravenous anesthesia. The doctor will then create specific incisions depending on which part of the face you would like to get implants.
For cheek implants, an incision in the mouth will be created, through which the materials will be inserted into each cheek. In some cases, incisions can alternatively be made within the hairline near the cheek area or inside the lower eyelid.
For chin implants, the doctor may use the intraoral approach, wherein an incision is created inside the lower lip. As another option, Dr. Sedgh can also create an incision beneath the chin, which is called the submental approach.
Lastly, in the case of jaw implants, incisions will be made inside the mouth, specifically along the fold along the jawline that holds the cheek and gums together.
Once the implants are in place, Dr. Sedgh will then close the incisions with absorbable stitches. The doctor does this with the utmost care to ensure minimal scarring and long-lasting results.
Facial implant procedures typically last 1-2 hours, depending on the area and the extent of the augmentation.
