About Facial Implants

The face is the first thing that people see when they meet you and it is therefore easy to have your confidence knocked if you are insecure about a particular feature. If you feel like this because of the size or shape of your face, then you are not alone and our chin implant surgery might be the solution.

Facial implants are most commonly used to add shape and fullness to a receding face, or to alter the overall shape of the face, often to balance and proportion. This type of surgery can be combined with a face lift, nose reshaping surgery or any other surgical procedure for the face to achieve a better facial balance and a look that you will feel totally happy with.

Benefits Of Having Facial Implants

  • Increased overall self-confidence and self esteem
  • Enhance your appearance - producing features that are better proportioned and more balanced
  • Correcting weak and unbalanced features
  • Improve your neck line and make a large nose appear smaller
  • Strengthen your jaw line

The Procedure For Facial Implants Surgery

Facial implant surgery is a very simple procedures and patients are usually seen as day cases, which means there is no need for an overnight stay in hospital. The procedure normally takes between 45 minutes and one hour to complete and is carried out under general anaesthetic. The surgery involves making an incision from within the mouth, or underneath the chin, through which the implant is inserted to achieve the desired effect. The surgical cut will then be secured with dissolvable stitches and a dressing applied to support the implant while your face heals and to reduce the risk of infection.
