FACIAL AUGMENTATION PROCEDURES IN CLEVELAND

Form follows function. Dr. Diamantis strives to improve facial harmony with facial augmentation procedures!

Facial reshaping of the bony contours allows us to enhance or reduce areas of the face. Many people feel their face is out of balance and wish to have changes made to achieve facial harmony. The maxillofacial surgery options include: 

  • Chin/jaw reduction or advancement
  • Cheek augmentation and cheek implants
  • Rhinoplasty
  • Jaw surgery (orthognathic)
  • Chin and mandibular angle implants

Facial implants bring balance and better proportion to the structural appearance of your face. If you are bothered by a small chin, weak jaw or lack of facial contour, plastic surgery with facial implants may benefit you.

WHAT ARE FACIAL IMPLANTS?

Facial implants are custom formed, solid materials compatible with human tissues, designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face.

The precise type and size of facial implants, best suited for you, requires an evaluation of your goals, the features you wish to correct, and Dr. Diamantis’ judgment.

If you are bothered by a small chin, weak jaw, or lack of facial contour, plastic surgery with facial implants may benefit you!

While any area of your face can be augmented with implants, the cheek or malar area, chin, and jaw are the most common sites for facial implants.

CHIN IMPLANTS

Chin implants can increase the size and projection of a chin that isn’t in proportion with the forehead and midface.

A small, or recessed chin, can also be described as one that seems to disappear into the neck of an individual of normal weight, rather than appearing as a distinct facial feature.

JAW IMPLANTS

Jaw implants increase the width of the lower third of your face.

Much like the chin, a weak jaw can be thought of as one that is not well-defined and distinct from the neck, or one that slopes, rather than angles, from the ear to the chin.

In some cases, both the chin and jaw can contribute to facial imbalance.

CHEEK IMPLANTS

Cheek implants increase the projection of the cheekbones. They add volume to areas that may be recessed or flat.

THE PROCESS

A facial implants procedure may include the following steps:

  • Anesthesia
    • Medications are administered for your comfort during the surgical procedures. The options include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Dr. Diamantis will recommend the best option for you.
  • Cheek implants
    • The specific area to be augmented in the cheek determines where an implant will be positioned on the cheekbone.
    • Cheek implants are most often placed through incisions in the mouth. When performed with other procedures, alternate incisions may be recommended including placement through an incision inside the lower eyelid or one within the hairline.
  • Chin implants
    • For a chin implant, the incision may be inside your mouth, along the crease that joins your lower lip and gums.
    • An incision just beneath the chin is an alternative.
  • Jaw implants
    • Jaw implants are generally placed through the mouth with incisions inside the mouth, back along the jawline at the crease where the inside of your cheek and gums meet.
    • Your incisions will be closed with absorbable sutures or stitches that will be removed within one to two weeks following your surgery.

  • Are physically healthy
  • Do not smoke
  • Have a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for improvement of facial contours

THE EXPERIENCE

While the initial outcome of plastic surgery with facial implants is noticeable almost immediately, it will be obscured by visible swelling. After the surgery, patients wear a custom facial garment to assist with healing and minimize the swelling and bruising. After a short period of rest, usually about 12 hours, it is recommended to avoid strenuous activities for the next 2 weeks. Final results are usually seen in about 6 weeks.

FACIAL IMPLANT PATIENT TESTIMONIAL

Meet Kristen, 15

Honor roll student and daughter

“The surgery changed my daughter’s life.”

Profile headshot of patient Kris before facial implants.

BEFORE

Kristen is a quiet, shy, young lady. She enjoys reading and walking on the beach. Kristen’s physician was concerned with her severe overbite and poor nutrition, and referred her to Cleveland Cosmetic Surgery for an evaluation. The surgery changed Kristen’s life.

Kristen’s Recommended Treatments

  1. COSMETIC RHINOPLASTY to shape the nose into a more elegant form and conform the nose to fit his face.
  2. LOWER JAW SURGERY to enhance the lower jaw, which restores dental occlusion and facial balance.
  3. CHIN IMPLANT to enhance a weak chin and jawline.

“Kris’s personality exploded, thanks to the confidence the surgery restored.” — Mom

AFTER

Kristen was shy and avoided social activities because she didn’t feel confident with her appearance. Dr. Diamantis performed a thorough evaluation and recommended chin augmentation, jaw surgery and rhinoplasty. This surgical combination is very effective in achieving facial balance. Dr. Diamantis achieved facial harmony for Kristen. With this renewed confidence, Kristen is more socially out-going now and is thriving in college!
