A facial implant can accentuate areas of the cheeks, chin, nose and angle of the lower jaw by re-draping and tightening the skin to provide a more youthful appearance by placing synthetic materials deep under the subcutaneous tissue and onto the underlying bone.. A nose can be reshaped or a chin brought forward to improve proportion. Implants can be used to fill out a face that appears “sunken” or tired.
Here are some of the common facial implant surgeries that can be performed to improve your appearance:
Some of the risks involved with a facial implant surgery can include bad reaction to anesthesia, bleeding, bruising, changes in skin sensation, infection, poor healing of incisions, scarring, skin discoloration and swelling. There is a chance of damage to deeper structures such as blood vessels, lungs, muscles and nerves.
You may be a good candidate for a facial implant in Philadelphia and the Main Line if you are physically in good health, do not smoke and have a realistic outlook for the improvement of your facial contours. Facial implants work best on patients who have reached physical maturity, at least in late adolescence. Dr. Morgenstern will listen to your particular needs and provide information about what treatment options are available and what is best suited for you.
You can expect to feel some discomfort after your Philadelphia facial implant surgery. The swelling can take six weeks to fully heal but half of it clears up within 10 days after your procedure. You may get bandages or dressings for a few days to keep things clean and support the implant’s position. There should be no physical restrictions after your surgery. It can take two or three months after the swelling has subsided before you see results from the surgery.
