Fashion Girl with Closed eyesIf you have been looking in the mirror and considering making some changes to your appearance, you may be wondering what your options are. You should know that you have other choices besides plastic surgery and dermal fillers – facial implants are an effective and quick way to see the changes you want. 

What are facial implants?

Facial implants are a way to mold your cheeks, jaw, or chin exactly how you want them, by giving them new contours and definition. Implants can be made of a soft silicone material, or the patient’s own fat can be taken from one area of the body (such as the thighs or stomach) and transplanted to the face. Which material is used depends on what your cosmetic surgery goals are and what your doctor thinks would be right for you. 

Silicone implants improve the contour of the face and can help the cheekbones, chin, or jaw to look more prominent. There are many shapes and sizes to choose from, or the patient can have a custom-made implant. 

Fat can be used to restore lost volume in the face, to restore areas such as hollow areas under the eyes, cheeks, saggy jaws, and the area between the lips and the chin or between the nose and the lips. It has a very natural look to it, and it is very safe to use with no chance of rejection because it comes from your own body. 

What are the benefits of facial implants?

The procedure to get a facial implant is performed relatively quickly, on an outpatient basis. Patients typically report that beyond some swelling and bruising after the procedure (which an ice pack can reduce), there is little pain. The results are dramatic and long lasting – they can last forever, as opposed to fillers and other alternatives, which may last for a few months or a few years.   

Facial implants can give your face the contour, definition, and balance that you want to see when you look in the mirror. Call the office of Dr. Gary J. Price, in New Haven and Fairfield County, CT, at (203) 453-6635 for an facial implant consultation today!

The Basics of Facial Implants

Facial Implants Guilford, CTWhen you hear about implants, the first thing that comes to mind is breast implants, but here at Dr. Price’s office we offer patients facial implants as well. But what are facial implants and what is there for you to know about them?

What are Facial Implants?

Facial implants are usually made from a solid form of silicone called silastic. These implants are used to help shape and enhance certain parts of the face like the cheeks and chin. The unique thing about facial implants is that they can be different shapes and sizes to help create the perfectly-shaped contour for your facial structure.

How is Surgery Performed?

Typically, we will perform this surgery under intravenous sedation. Once you are sedated, we will then usually make incisions inside of the mouth just behind the cheek which allows us to place implants in your face without you having to deal with incisions.

What Are Results Like?

If you have always wanted to have a little bit more contour n on your cheeks then you can stop dreaming. With facial implants, we can add that extra bit of definition that you’ve been wanting so that you feel more confident in your appearance. The great thing about facial implants is that unlike temporary fillers, they lost a lot longer which means that you won’t have to worry about getting them done too often.

Having the facial structure that you’ve always wanted doesn’t’ have to be something that you continue to dream about. Let Dr. Price turn your dreams into a reality with facial implants. To learn more, contact us at our Guildford office at (203) 453-6635.

3 Ways to Add Contour and Definition to Your Face

Facial Implants Guilford, CTThe last thing you want is to have a face that resembles a basketball from every angle. As one of the most common features that all supermodels have, it’s a naturally contoured look. If you feel like your face could use a bit more definition, then you may want to consider one of these three options. From facial fillers to facial implants, this article will discuss three unique ways you can add contour and definition to your face. Read on to learn more.

Facial Fillers

As a temporary and affordable way to add definition to your face, facial fillers like Juvederm and Restylane are popular amongst Dr. Gary J. Price’s patients. By injecting the fillers under your cheekbones and around the center of your face, you will notice fewer wrinkles and more facial volume overall.

Fat Transfer

As one of the most popular procedures out there, fat transfer surgery involves removing fat from one part of your body and redistributing it to your face. And because you are using your fat, you don’t have to worry about any adverse reactions or introducing a chemical component to your body. Although some of the fat will be absorbed after it has been harvested, most of it should stay.

Facial Implants

If you’re looking for a permanent way to add contour and definition to your face, look no further than facial implants. By surgically implanting silicone implants under your cheeks or chin, you can add a whole new level of dimension to your face.

If you’re looking for a way to transform your face shape and structure, look no further than facial fillers, a fat transfer procedure, and facial implants. To learn more about each of these procedures and to see if one of them is right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Gary J. Price.

Hollowed Cheeks? Consider Cheek Enhancements

Cheek Enhancement | New Haven CTIf you look in the mirror and want to change a thing or two about your appearance, you are certainly not alone. And as your skin starts to lose elasticity and collagen as you age, you may start to notice even more flaws in your appearance that you would like to change. As an excellent way to enhance your overall look and make your face look a bit more youthful, cheek enhancement surgery is relatively simple. Read on to learn more about cheek enhancement surgery and whether or not it is the right thing for you.

What Is Cheek Enhancement Surgery?

Typically done in conjunction with a facelift, cheek enhancement surgery involves using either fillers, implants, or fat grafts to plump up the cheeks and give you a more chiseled facial appearance. Depending on the method that you and Dr. Gary J. Price decide to use for your cheek enhancements, you may have to go under anesthesia. If, however, you decide to do mere injections, you can be in and out of our office in virtually no time at all.

Who Is a Good Candidate?

To determine whether or not you are a suitable candidate for any cosmetic surgery, you will have to undergo a physical exam by your primary care physician to make sure that you are healthy enough. Most candidates for cheek enhancement surgery have a loss of fat in their face due to age and sun damage.

What Are Results Like?

Results from a cheek enhancement vary from patient to patient and depending on what method you use. For instance, if you and Dr. Gary J. Price decide to use fillers, your results will only last up to a year. Whereas if you get implants, they will last for several years, if not longer.

If you have started to notice a loss of fat and elasticity in your face, you may want to consider getting a cheek enhancement done by Dr. Gary J. Price. If you would like to learn more about this procedure or if you would like to schedule an appointment, contact our office today!

Define Your Features with Facial Implants

facial implants in connecticutIndeed, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But it wouldn’t hurt to achieve a few aesthetic goals with plastic surgery. With the use of facial implants, Dr. Gary J. Price has helped many patients in Connecticut look and feel their best.

Facial Implants: A Game-Changer

The field of cosmetic surgery has advanced throughout the years. Today, people can say goodbye to a small chin, a poorly-contoured face, or a weak jaw with the use of facial implants. Who would believe that your physical structure can be augmented or enhanced the way you want it to be? Implants, which are specially designed solid materials, are safe and compatible with human tissue.

During your first visit, Dr. Price will be able to identify areas in your face that can be improved greatly with implants, which are commonly the cheek area, the chin, and the jaw.

Face the world with your chin up!

Are you bothered by the appearance of your chin every time you look in the mirror? Believe us; you are not alone. A lot of our patients have undergone chin implant procedures. The procedure helps improve the proportion between the forehead, the mid-face, and the chin. You may benefit from such implants if you have a small or recessed chin, which seems to disappear into your neck even if you are of normal weight.

Jaw implants are all about definition!

Having a weak jaw may not affect your health, but it can affect the way people perceive you. This is why a lot of patients seek jaw implant surgery, which allows for an increase in the width of the jaw, providing balance to the entire face.

Flaunt those cheekbones with cheek implants!

You always have a reason to smile with projected cheekbones, and cheek implants can help you achieve this look. Facial implants add more volume to flat or recessed areas such as the cheeks.

Achieve beauty inside and out with the help of plastic surgery! If you are interested in getting facial implants, do not hesitate to give us a call at (203) 453-6635 to book an appointment with Dr. Price.
