Facial implants can create ideal balance, shape, and definition in your facial features for a more aesthetically pleasing facial shape and more youthful appearance. In addition, facial implants are effective to address deformities or asymmetries caused by physical injury or a congenital condition.
Grossman| Capraro Plastic Surgery offers several types of facial implants designed to address various aesthetic complaints, including:
Cheek Implants:Fat beneath your skin depletes as you age, which is why we associate a fuller, smoother face with youth. Cheek implants can help you restore prominent, defined cheeks and a more youthful facial shape. For women, cheek implants can create a desirable heart-shaped facial contour. For men, cheek implants can create the look of prominent, chiseled cheekbones.
Chin Implants: Chin implants can help you achieve a stronger chin, a lengthened or more balanced facial profile, and a more aesthetically pleasing facial shape. Some patients elect additional surgeries to complement the new shape of their chin, such as rhinoplasty, to create better balance, proportion, and symmetry of the facial features.
Jaw Implants:A poorly defined jawline can drastically affect the appearance of your face and neck, both in profile and straight-on. Jaw implants provide a long-term solution to this problem. Jaw implants are particularly popular among male patients. A strong, angular jaw is a hallmark of masculinity, and the results provided by jaw implants can help you feel confident in your appearance.
Tear Trough Implants: Dark circles under your eyes are not always the result of a poor night’s rest. Sometimes, they are the result of a tear trough deformity, which occurs when the shape of the skin and fat in the lower eyelid creates a shadow around your eye. Fortunately, tear trough implants can help you restore alert, youthful-looking eyes. If you are interested in a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure to address under-eye shadows and hollows, you may also consider dermal fillers.
Lip Implants: Each lip enhancement is customized to address your unique facial features and aesthetic goals. Grossman | Capraro Plastic Surgery offers both injectable and implantable options. Injectable fillers such as Restylane® and collagen offer several benefits including ease of use and quick recovery, but are not long-term solutions and must be repeated every 6-12 months to maintain fullness. Lip Implants such as PermaLip™ and Advanta PTFE are permanent solutions to create the appearance of soft, natural, and full lips.
Temporal Implants: Temporal implants augment the size and shape of your temples to address a narrow forehead, hollow or sunken temporal area, or changes to the temples as a result of aging. If you are interested in a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure to address the size and shape of your temples, you may also consider dermal fillers.
