If you don’t like the way your face looks, don’t blame your parents – do something about it. Just what can you do if the basic composition of your face is what’s bothering you? Facelifts won’t change more than the tightness of your facial skin and cosmetic procedures such as BOTOX, Perlane and fillers just help with wrinkles or one part of the face. If you want to change the contours of your face facial implants may be your best option. Our Akron cosmetic surgeon at Akron Facial Cosmetic Surgery Center can use facial implants to change the angles of your face and elongate your chin and adjust your cheeks among other things.
According to our Akron cosmetic surgeon jaw, cheeks and chin implants are the most popular facial surgery procedures. Sometimes a patient will want to combine more than one of these procedures in order to build a whole new profile. By using various implants our doctor can give the patient the face that they always wanted. Facial implants consist of our doctor placing extra, contoured material into the appropriate pockets made during the surgery. The material generally used is a solid silicone-type of product but real bone in the form of grafts can also be used. The bone grafts are generally taken from the patient’s ribs or other areas, donated bone can also be an option.
Our Akron cosmetic surgeon can contour the cheek implant to make the cheek narrower or fuller, and place it in such a way to give a more angular look. Many people use implants to elongate their chins, which will enhance the profile making their chin seem stronger and make a large nose look smaller. Chin implants are often done in conjunction with rhinoplasty. Using a jaw implant can make the jawline more pronounced and appear stronger. If there are aspects of your face you would like to improve give our office a call.
