Facial Implants

Facial Implants

Facial implants are applied both for restorative and aesthetic purposes to re-contour the face, furthermore to strengthen and balance facial features. Another often desired impact of facial implants is to lift certain areas countering aging and gravity to create a firmer, more youthful look.  There are plenty of facial implants (mainly cheek, forehead, chin, jaw and nasal implants) available on the market, made of solid silicone and other harder, porous, biocompatible substances.

What Aesthetic Conditions Can Facial Implants Correct?

  • Imbalances and disproportionate facial features
  • Large asymmetries
  • Recessed, sloped, flat and indistinct facial contours
  • Sagging, aging skin

How Are Facial Implants inserted?

  • In cheek implant surgery the incision is made in the inside of the mouth or at the lower eyelid so no visible scars remain.
  • Jaw implants require incisions on both sides of the lower lip.
  • To place chin implants the incision is either below the chin or along the lower lip.
  • Forehead implants are inserted through an incision made in the hair covered scalp.

How Much Do Facial Implants Cost?

The facial implants carry no threat to health, although the surgical procedure may carry certain risks. Just like almost all esthetic procedures, it is also done on an outpatient basis.

As the surgery is usually an elective, aesthetic procedure and not a medical necessity the facial implants cost is hardly covered by any insurer. The expenses of the surgery for facial implants involve the surgeon’s and the anesthesiologist’s fees, the facial implants themselves, the operating facilities, medication and lab tests. Procedures for facial implants cost between $2000 and $6000, depending on the number and size of the facial implants needed.

It is a very common practice to perform various cosmetic surgeries with a single intervention for health and cost saving purposes. Facial implant surgeries are quite often complemented with eyebrow lift, blepharoplasty or a facelift, which will enhance the final result and lower the price of the individual procedures.
