Individuals often desire a defined facial structure. However, as aging occurs, bone density diminishes, and soft facial tissue support weakens, which can cause the chin, cheeks, and jaw to appear smaller. Alternatively, some people are born with recessed chins or weak jawlines that cannot be augmented without plastic surgery.
Facial implants have become a popular option to restore symmetry and definition to the face, creating the chiseled and angular appearance that so many hope to achieve.
A small or recessed chin can disrupt the balance of the facial profile, resulting in an obscure jawline definition and the appearance of a plump midface. Chin implants can create a well-defined chin that significantly improves the overall harmony of the face.
Men and women desire defined jawlines for different reasons. A chiseled jawline is a sign of masculinity and strength for men, whereas a defined jaw provides women with smooth, angular facial contours. Men and women can achieve their ideal appearance with jaw implants.
Sagging cheeks is a common cosmetic concern for many individuals. The appearance of full, high cheekbones can balance your facial features to create a well-defined, youthful facial appearance. Cheek implants can help create fuller, higher cheeks that improve your overall facial appearance.
Facial augmentation with implants is usually performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure.
Depending on which implants you choose, your incision placement will vary. During the surgery, Dr. Hadeed will make a small incision in a discreet location (usually within the mouth or under the chin). He will then select a form-stable silicone implant of appropriate size, thickness, and projection to give you the profile you desire.
After ensuring that the implant is appropriately positioned and affixed to the bone, Dr. Hadeed will close your incision.
After your facial implant surgery, you may experience minimal bruising and swelling. If you are in any discomfort, pain medication can be taken as needed. Most patients can return to work within a week, but strenuous activity should be avoided for at least four to six weeks.
Since incisions are required to insert facial implants, scarring is inevitable. However, Dr. Hadeed works to place the small incisions in inconspicuous areas. For cheek implants, incisions are made inside the mouth, so scarring is not visible. Chin and jawline implants may require an incision beneath the chin to place and position the implant.
The cost of facial implants will be based on the type of implants you choose and the amount of correction needed. Generally, facial implants cost varies on surgeon fees, anesthesia fees, and the location of the procedure.
Your facial implant results should be immediately visible. However, you will need to wait for swelling and bruising to subside to enjoy your new facial contours fully.

Candidates for facial implants are men and women who are in generally good health, do not smoke, and have reasonable expectations of their results. A consultation with Dr. Hadeed will help determine if you are a candidate for facial implants.
During your consultation, Dr. Hadeed will perform a physical evaluation and review your medical history to determine if you are a candidate for facial implants. If he determines that facial implants are right for you, he will listen to your concerns and then formulate a surgical plan that best suits your individual needs.
Your facial implant results are intended to be permanent. However, facial implants cannot halt the natural aging process, and the surrounding tissues will eventually experience laxity.
The implants themselves, however, are not expected to change.
You may experience bruising and swelling for a few days after your implant(s) has been placed. Generally, swelling subsides within five to 10 days.
Dr. Hadeed is a board-certified plastic surgeon with many years of experience. Facial implant surgeries performed by him are generally safe; however, the risk of complications and side effects is still present. These risks include:
