Also known as chin implants or cheek implants
Facial implants are designed to augment, reconstruct, or rejuvenate your facial contours. They are available in a wide range of sizes and styles and restore contour and/or proportion to your face. Facial implants can be used to augment your chin and jaw, to provide the sculpted cheekbones that you desire, or to supplement the tear trough area.
When to Consider Facial Implants
• If you have a weak, receding chin and wish to make it more projecting and improve your jawline
• If you wish to enhance the definition and fullness of your cheeks
• If you wish to restore contour and proportion to your facial structures made deficient by aging
• If you wish to correct facial asymmetry or deformities resulting from injury or congenital conditions
