    Ever wished your face had a bit more shape or looked more even? Facial implants can help! They’re small, solid pieces, made of silicone or high-density polyethylene, placed under your skin or bone during surgery.

    Here’s what they can do:

    Make your face fuller: Want fuller cheeks, a stronger chin, or a sharper jawline? Implants can add that definition! This can make your face look more balanced and attractive.

    Fix unevenness: Sometimes, our faces aren’t perfectly symmetrical. Implants can help fix those small differences and make your face look more even and balanced.

    Look younger: As we age, our faces lose their plumpness. Implants can restore it, especially in your cheeks, making you look younger and fresher.

    What are Chin Implants?

    Chin implants, or chin augmentation surgery, enhance facial features in both men and women using implants. The surgery aims to improve the lower facial structure for a more appealing look that aligns with the patient’s preferences. By modifying the chin during the procedure, the surgeon can enhance contour, balance height, and roundness, often to provide more projection and a defined jawline.

    Chin implants can be performed alone or with other cosmetic surgeries to achieve a balanced facial contour. Sometimes, this surgery combines rhinoplasty to create a more proportional and desirable side profile.

    A specialist maxillofacial cosmetic surgeon makes an incision inside the bottom lip or under the chin to place the silicone implant, which is flexible and soft, into a created pocket. Unlike genioplasty, which involves reshaping the jawbone with or without implants, chin augmentation specifically uses implants to achieve the desired results.

    Benefits of Facial Implants

    Facial implants offered at London Private Hospital provide a range of advantages for individuals seeking facial enhancement. These implants enhance facial contours, adding volume and definition to areas such as the cheeks, chin, and jawline, resulting in a more balanced and harmonious appearance. By improving facial proportions and symmetry, these implants contribute to enhanced overall facial aesthetics.

    One notable benefit is their longevity, which permanently enhances the facial structure and contours. Each treatment plan is customised to the patient’s unique features and aesthetic goals, ensuring natural-looking results that complement their facial anatomy. Furthermore, the procedure itself is minimally invasive, typically performed under local or general anaesthesia, with minimal downtime and discomfort.

    For people who want facial rejuvenation, facial implants can be a big help in improving your self-esteem.

    What Does Facial Implant Surgery Involve

    Facial implant surgery is a cosmetic procedure aimed at enhancing facial contours by strategically placing implants in key areas such as the cheeks, chin, or jawline. The surgery is typically performed under anaesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the procedure.

    Our experienced surgeons meticulously customise each surgery to suit your unique facial anatomy and desired aesthetic outcomes. By precisely selecting and placing implants, we aim to achieve natural-looking results that enhance your facial harmony and balance. Despite the transformative nature of the surgery, downtime is minimal, allowing you to resume your normal activities relatively quickly.

    Rest assured, our team at London Private Hospital is dedicated to providing you with the highest quality of care and ensuring your satisfaction with the results of your facial implant surgery.

    Recovery and Aftercare

    Recovery and aftercare following facial implant surgery at London Private Hospital are essential for optimal results and patient comfort.

    After the procedure, you may have some swelling and pain, but these can easily be managed with cold compresses or OTC medication. Keep your head elevated and do not engage in strenuous physical activities. Follow-up appointments with your surgeon will monitor your progress, and you should adhere to aftercare guidelines, including wound care and dietary restrictions.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Am I a good candidate?

    The best way to find out is to set up a meeting with our surgeon. They’ll check your health, what you want from the surgery, and your face shape to see which implant fits you the best. It’s also good if you have good overall health, have realistic expectations, and don’t smoke.

    Will the facial implant process hurt?

    You won’t feel anything during surgery due to anaesthesia. You might feel some soreness and swelling afterward. However, our surgeons will prescribe you medication to ease the pain.

    How long will the results for facial implants last?

    Facial implants are very long-lasting, but age and weight factors can cause some changes over time. It is important to maintain a stable weight so that the results of a facial implant last a long time.

    Will I get scars from facial implant surgery?

    Our surgeons will make small cuts in hidden locations and stitch them carefully to reduce scarring. Your scars will also fade away in time.

    Are there any risks involved in facial implant surgery?

    Facial implant surgery has some risks. These include bleeding, infections, reaction to anaesthesia, and movement of the implant. However, if you get your facial implant from London Private Hospital, these risks are minimised.
