You may think that you know exactly what people are talking about when the conversation turns to “implants.” Most of us associate that word with breast augmentation, and with good reason. Thousands of breast implant surgeries are performed in the U.S. every year. And most of us know someone who has had one, if not ourselves!
But there’s another type of implant that can have just as big of an impact on appearance and self-esteem: facial implants. Here’s why they are so popular and effective.
Balancing your face from cheek to chin
Facial implants are solid molds, compatible with our own tissue and designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of the face. Any area of the face can be augmented with implants, but they are most commonly used in the cheeks, chin and jaw.
Facial implants can be used to improve the appearance of:
- A weak jaw
- A small chin
- Undefined or diminished cheekbones
- Overall lack of aesthetic facial contour
Chin implants can improve your chin and entire jaw line
A weak jaw is not well defined or distinct from your neck, or it slopes, rather than creating an angle, from your ear to your chin. A small or recessed chin can seem to disappear into your neck, rather than being a distinct facial feature. To increase the size and projection of a chin that’s not in proportion with the rest of you face, chin implants can be a solution.
Cheek implants can give you a new look, or return you to your younger self
Even for those born with prominent, well-defined cheekbones, they can decrease and appear sunken as we age. Implants can add volume and increase the projection of the cheekbones, which can help restore a more youthful appearance.
Your face, defined
