Facial Implants in Howell & Monroe Township, NJ
Chin, Jaw, and Cheek Enhancements
Types of Facial Implants
Facial implants can serve to improve the appearance of your jaw, chin, and cheeks. Our facial implants enhance bone structure and overall aesthetics while contributing to facial balance and harmony.
What materials are used for facial implants?
Our facial cosmetic and maxillofacial surgeons use premium materials compatible with human tissues. At your consultation, we’ll begin by evaluating your features and establishing your cosmetic goals, so that we can help you choose the type and size of implants that will best meet your needs.
Am I a good candidate for a facial implant?
The best candidates for plastic surgery are those who are physically active, don’t smoke, and have a specific idea about what they’d like to change cosmetically. When you come in for a consult, we will make recommendations according to your cosmetic goals. If you decide to move forward with a facial implant, we’ll also discuss your preference for anesthesia. We ensure that all our patients are comfortable and relaxed during their procedures.
Jaw implants are popular with those who are unhappy with the slope of their jaw and would prefer a well-defined angle from the ear to the chin. Contributing to facial balance, jaw implants help establish you jaw as distinct from your neck. We place jaw implants in the lower lip through a small incision, and this procedure takes one to two hours. We secure the wound with dissolvable stitches that leave no trace of a scar. Jaw Implants help:
- Create a balance with other facial features.
- Increase the width of the lower third of your face.
- Establish a square jawline.
If you’ve noticed that your chin is out of proportion with your forehead or that it seems to disappear into your neck, chin implants remedy this issue by increasing the size and projection of your chin. This allows it to be a distinct feature, adding harmony and balance to your face. We place chin implants through your lower lip or under your chin during a 30-minute procedure.
Why get a chin implant?
Chin implants can do any and all of the following:
- Create a more balanced profile.
- Improve facial harmony.
- Reduce a deep fold under the lower lip.
- Strengthen a weak or recessed chin.
- Improve neck and jawline definition.
- Reduce the appearance of a double chin.
- Widen a small chin.
Cheek implants add volume and increase the projection of cheekbones when you find your cheeks have become flat or recessed. We place cheek implants through the upper lips or through the lower eyelids, depending on the desired goals. This procedure typically takes about an hour.
