If a person feels that one of their facial features is “weak” and thereby creating an imbalance in their appearance then facial augmentation with implants may be a good choice for them. Facial implants are popular because they are a more permanent option for aesthetic improvement (as opposed to dermal fillers) and because they come in many shapes and sizes or can be customizable to individually suit the person’s face.
At our Santa Barbara Cosmetic Surgery Center, we can use facial implants for all areas of the face.
Cheek Implants add volume and contouring to the cheek area that may have lost the curvature due to genetics, age or extreme weight loss. When fat is lost in the cheek area, the hollows in the under eye area and the nasolabial folds may become more pronounced, making a person appear tired or unhappy. Cheek implants restore the volume and give the overall face a “lift”.
Chin Implants are used to strengthen a chin that has a noticeably weak definition. An under-projected chin can make the nose and/or neck appear larger than they are. The proper size and shaped chin implant will re-create definition. As an extra bonus, we often hear patients say the newly defined chin makes them look like they have lost weight!
Nasal Implants can be used to elevate the nasal bridge and/or improve the tip. The implant can be custom-sized to best fit the person’s face and compliment the other features.
Mandibular Angle Implants are used to create a stronger and more defined jaw. This surgery is more common for men because a wider lower face is seen as desirable.
There are many surgical and non-invasive augmentation options and combinations that can be done to improve one’s appearance.
