Sometimes a subtle change can dramatically enhance the appearance of the face. Chin and cheek facial implants give our New Haven, Connecticut patients a more balanced, but natural look. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Price uses facial implants to fill out features, restore "sunken" areas, and provide symmetry.
Dr. Price chooses a specific size and shape implant to enhance the patient's face and inserts it into a pocket over the jawbone. The incision can be made just under the chin or within the mouth. In the latter case, the stitches will dissolve and minimal scarring will be left. The procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
Cheek implants can help contour your cheekbones and give you a more youthful look. These implants are placed through hidden incisions. When cheek implant surgery is performed in conjunction with a cosmetic procedure such as a face lift, the implants can usually be inserted through the incisions already made. This procedure usually takes about an hour to complete.
