There are four types of facial structure implants that are used for augmentation. Chin implant, midface implants cheekbone implants and angle of jaw implants
1. Chin Implant Surgery
A weak chin creates an unbalanced look and may cause the nose to look over-projected from a side view, as well as draw negative attention to the structure of the upper neck. A wrap-around chin implant creates a longer, wider chin without it appearing sharp. The chin implant is placed over the existing chin by means of a small, discreet incision hidden under the chin. Post operatively, there are tapes around the chin to minimize swelling.
As we age, we lose our fat in our cheeks and the midface becomes collapsed. This also occurs in both men and women who have lost weight. Most commonly, this problem is corrected with long term injectable fillers. But a more permanent solution is the insertion of the midface implants through an incision above the teeth inside the mouth so there is no scar on the outside.
For those that want high angular look, augmentation of the upper outer part of the cheek by the insertion of cheekbone implants can be achieved very dramatically. Although this can be achieved with long term injectable fillers some want a more permanent solution to this. These are inserted through the same incision as the midface implants.
Angle of Jaw Implants (or injectable fillers) aid patients who do not like the look of narrow jaws where the angle is too soft. Some like the angle to be well defined giving a chiseled look. These implants are placed through the mouth outside the boney jaw and placed at the angle where they become secured in place.
