Facial Implants: Cheek, Chin, Jaw, & More
If you would like to change the contours of your face, you may consider facial implants as an option. When surgically implanted by an experienced professional, hey can improve imbalanced proportions and correct unappealing profiles caused by injury or hereditary traits. At the Zannis Center for Plastic Surgery in New Bern, NC we specialize in a range of cutting-edge facial implants that are customized to your unique facial structure and your personal goals. Whether it’s contouring your jawline, chin, cheeks, or other part of the face, our expertise and artistic eye will bring you a healthy dose of self-confidence and a new look you’ll be excited to show off to all of your family, friends, and coworkers.
The Facial Implant Procedure
After we meet with you to talk about your goals and your options, we’ll custom-order your appropriately sized and shaped implants based on your facial measurements and the results you’re seeking. Then, we’ll carefully place your facial implants, most commonly in the cheek, chin, or jaw. Our experts use incisions inside the mouth or discreetly placed external incisions to create space in soft tissues for implant positioning and support.
Generally, our facial implant surgeries are performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia with or without sedation, as needed by the patient.
Results & Recovery from Facial Implant Surgeries
After your facial implant procedure, the results will be virtually immediate. Your initial swelling and possible mild discomfort should subside in 2 to 4 weeks and dissipate fully in 1 to 2 months, as final results appear. Because we perform facial implants as outpatient procedures, you should be able to return to work within a few short days or a week at the most. We will generally recommend refraining from heavy lifting and rigorous activity for 2 to 4 weeks afterward as well.
