Different Types of Facial Implants
Facial implants can be used anywhere to enhance the face or improve symmetry. The most common sites for facial implants to be placed are the cheeks, chin, and jaw area.
High cheekbones are considered attractive for both men and women. Individuals who have a flat mid-face region and lack defined cheekbones may benefit from cheek implants, which can be used to augment the cheekbones and add volume in areas that are flat or recessed.
A strong and prominent chin is desired by many male patients as it can make the face look more masculine. For females, a chin implant can improve the contour of the face, making the face look slimmer and more streamlined. Chin implants are one of the most effective ways at correcting a chin that is out of proportion with or lacks projection from the rest of the face. They can be used to augment the chin, change its shape, and add definition to the lower face.
A weak jaw lacks definition and seems to blend into the neck. Implants can be used to improve the appearance of the lower face by sculpting a more angular jawline. In some cases, chin and jaw implants are both required to achieve balance in the lower face.
