Facial Implants in Houston
Flat or sunken cheekbones, a weak jawline, or a receding chin can easily be corrected with facial implants. These implants are inserted through tiny incisions. Small, dissolving sutures render those incisions entirely invisible.
For the most natural results, it’s important to work with an experienced Houston facial plastic surgeon that has extensive experience with different types of facial implants and techniques, like Dr. Freeman. During your consultation, Dr. Freeman will carefully discuss your goals to determine the best approach for your cosmetic procedure.
He will learn more about how you want to look and make sure that you select the best size and type of implant to more perfectly compliment your appearance. Developing a plan with a skilled facial plastic surgeon is a key component to achieving a desired new appearance, and Dr. Freeman ensures you have a full understanding of what you can expect before you begin treatment.
Types of Facial Implants
There are many types of facial implants. Chin implants can help make a chin more prominent. For those with chins that are recessed or for those with small chins, chin implants can result in dramatic changes to a person’s appearance, resulting in a more confident and stunning look.
Jaw implants can help make a face look more symmetrical or can lend a jaw more definition. Some patients may not require jaw implants. In this case, genioplasty is sufficient. With this procedure, the jaw bone is cut and moved forward. Small screws and a metal plate hold the jaw in place.
Cheek implants can dramatically improve a person’s appearance by increasing the volume of less-defined facial features. Paranasal implants can help improve the appearance of the nose. Some patients choose to achieve a fuller lip through injections, fillers, or a tissue graft. In many cases, a combination of implants allows patients to achieve the most balanced and attractive result. Other patients might choose to include facial implants as part of an overall plan for facial plastic surgery that includes rhinoplasty, face lifts, eyelid lifts, and other procedures. Dr. Freeman’s experience, care, and discerning eye will ensure that you look your very best, whatever combination of procedures you choose.
Lip Augmentation using Perma Facial Implants is a surgical procedure designed to permanently enhance the natural shape of the lip providing natural-looking, fuller lips with minimal downtime. The implant is a soft, pliable silicone device that creates fuller lips without distorting the patient’s smile. The upper lip takes on a more youthful contour, enhancing the Cupid’s bow and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. The bottom lip develops an attractive pout.
Who is a Good Candidate for Facial Implants?
Are you considering getting facial implants in Houston? Excellent candidates for facial implants include patients who have achieved physical maturity and who wish to improve the symmetry of the face or overall facial shape. Those with weak jaws or recessed chins find this procedure beneficial as well. Facial implants can also be optimal for individuals involved in accidents which resulted in injury to the face. Additionally, older patients who have lost elasticity in the skin or fat due to the natural aging process are excellent candidates for facial implants.
Regardless of which type of procedure you choose, you can rest assured you will be in the hands of an excellent facial plastic surgeon. Dr. Freeman uses small silicone implants and strategically places them to balance facial features and create an enhanced aesthetic. Recovery is quick and the results are subtle but stunning. This is an outpatient procedure, so no hospitalization is required. In most cases, the procedure is completed in under one hour. Most people will not even think you had plastic surgery, but they will definitely notice an incredible improvement in your appearance.
