Facial implants were created to add fullness or contour to give facial features a more proportional look. They may also be used to reconstruct a face after an injury or surgery, or to rejuvenate an area of the face that has been compromised due to aging or disease.

Facial Implants Can Alter a Feature By:

  • Changing its size
  • Sculpting or adding contours
  • Correcting a deformity

 

Good Candidates

  • Are at least 18 years of age who no longer experience growth spurts
  • Do not have life-threatening illnesses or medical conditions that impair healing
  • Don’t smoke
  • Have a positive outlook but realistic goals for their appearance improvement

 

 

The Procedures

Dr. Swier will make a small incision under the upper lip or lower lip, inside the mouth or at the gum or lip junction. A pocket is made over the cheeks or chin, the implant is inserted and the area is stitched. The entire procedure usually takes between one and two hours.
