Facial Implants are used to enhance and create more definition in the cheeks and chin, as well as improve overall facial harmony and balance. The chin implant has helped many people with a weak or receding chin achieve a more defined jaw line and stronger chin appearance. Cheek implants are placed on the highest point of the malar bone to enhance the cheek volume and definition.

Facial implants are made from several types of materials from porous to solid, though most implants are compose of a solid silicone or Gore-Tex which are tolerated nicely by the body. Sometimes facial implants may be performed on their own as either an in-office procedure or outpatient surgery, and sometimes the facial implants may be combined with other facial rejuvenation procedures such as blepharoplasty (eyelid lift) or rhinoplasty (nose surgery).
