Facial implants are biologically-compatible solid materials that can be installed within a certain part of the face to enhance its physical structure and improve overall facial proportions. There are three major facial areas that can be enhanced with implants: the cheek, the chin, and the jaw. This procedure is ideal for those who suffer from weak chins, recessed jawlines, poorly defined cheekbones, or sunken cheeks.
Patients who get cheek implants can expect definite volume enhancement, while those who opt for jaw and chin implants can expect improved contours and stronger definition in the lower face area.
Reasons To Undergo This Procedure
While almost any area of the face can be augmented with facial implants, patients tend to undergo this procedure to enhance the cheek, chin, or jaw. Cheek implants can help create more volume or fullness in the face, while chin and jaw implants can help create a stronger, more symmetrical facial profile. Here are the common issues that facial implants can help solve:
- Flat, undefined cheekbones
- Sagging or gaunt cheeks
- Weak or recessed chin and jawline
- Disproportionate facial structure

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.
