Facial Implants Q & A

What are facial implants?

Facial implants are small pieces of biocompatible silicone that augment your facial contours and improve your physical appearance. They provide a minimally invasive way to address aesthetic imperfections, like a weak jaw or flat cheekbones.

To ensure positive treatment outcomes, Dr. Freeman uses an innovative maxillofacial surgery technique called the Diamond Tripartite™. The Diamond Tripartite combines a minimally invasive neck lift with laser skin tightening and custom facial implants to help enhance the shape of your cheek, chin, or jaw.

What types of issues can benefit from facial implants?

You might be a candidate for facial implants if you have:

  • A small or receding chin
  • An excessively narrow jaw
  • Jowls
  • Thin lips
  • Flat cheeks
  • Facial asymmetry
  • Abnormal facial proportions

You might also benefit from facial implants if you experience trauma due to an accident or injury.

What are the types of facial implants?

Dr. Freeman offers several types of facial implants, including:

Chin implants

Chin implants enhance the aesthetic proportions of your chin. They improve your facial symmetry, enhance the definition of your jawline, and look natural. What’s more, the implants feel similar to bone and won’t move out of position.

Cheek implants

If you have flat cheekbones or a gaunt face, Dr. Freeman might recommend cheek implants. Cheek implants increase the volume of your cheeks, helping combat the age-related loss of collagen. They come in various sizes so that Dr. Freeman can ensure natural-looking results.

Jaw implants

If you have a narrow or “weak” jaw, consider a jaw implant. Dr. Freeman usually prescribes jaw implants alongside cheek implants. That’s because jaw and cheek implants help support each other, reducing the risk of implant failure.

Lip augmentation

Lip augmentation uses small silicone implants to enhance the appearance and volume of your lips.

What does getting facial implants involve?

Dr. Freeman inserts your facial implants during an outpatient procedure. Before you leave the hospital, he provides detailed postoperative instructions, including how to care for your incisions, how to reduce discomfort during healing, and if you should avoid certain activities like work or exercise.

Most people who get facial implants experience few side effects and can return to work within a week. Contact Dr. Freeman immediately if you develop symptoms like swelling, redness, or signs of infection.
