Facial implants are used to bring the chin and/or cheek into more harmonious balance with the rest of your face to enhance your appearance and bolster your self-esteem.
Good Candidates for Facial Implants
Good candidates for facial implants are healthy man and woman dissatisfied with the balance of their facial structure. Perhaps you are concerned about sagging in your cheek area. This can be addressed with a facelift, dermal fillers, a cheek implant, or fat grafting to the cheek. If your chin is out of balance with the rest of your face, or it recedes and creates a poor profile, a chin implant can easily change the projection and size of your chin for better facial symmetry. Many Poughkeepsie rhinoplasty patients opt for a chin implant to create facial balance with their “nose job” procedure.
At your private consultation with Dr. Enisman or Dr. Sepulveda at our Poughkeepsie, NY plastic surgery office, he will examine your facial features, the texture and tone of your skin, as well as the degree of laxity, and describe all the available options for treatment. Cosmetic surgery procedures, such as Facial Implants, can sometimes be done under local anesthesia, which your plastic surgeon will discuss with you at your consultation, along with information about the procedure, and any risks and potential complications, so that you’re fully informed when you schedule your procedure.

Recovery from Facial Implant Surgery
After surgery, you should expect bruising and swelling to your face. If you have discomfort, you may take over-the-counter, non-aspirin products such as Tylenol. Our plastic surgeons can also prescribe pain medication for the first 48 hours.
