REASONS TO UNDERGO THIS PROCEDURE
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
FACIAL IMPLANTS PROCEDURE
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.
Facial implant surgery is usually an outpatient procedure. After the surgery, bandages or dressings will be applied to support the placement of the implant, as well as to keep the surgical site clean.
Recovery time will vary depending on the area and the number of implants you had installed. Expect about 2-3 weeks of downtime, during which you will experience some bruising and swelling.
Some patients are able to go out publicly within a few days post-surgery, but this will again depend on the extent of the procedure, where the incisions were made, and various other factors.
You will be provided with specific medications and comprehensive aftercare instructions to aid healing and to minimize the risk of infection.
As part of his efforts to provide personalized care, Dr. Sedgh makes himself available to his patients throughout the entire duration of the post-surgery process. And to help facilitate the most optimum recovery, the doctor will personally assess and monitor your healing through several post-op appointments over the next few months up to a year.
