Not all facial cosmetic surgeries are designed to address the unwanted signs of aging. Many women and men struggle with insecurities due to their facial anatomy, including a weak chin, jawline, or small cheeks. Facial implants create structural balance, allowing individuals to achieve a more defined facial aesthetic. With the ability to create remarkable transformations, facial implants are highly sought-after in cosmetic enhancement and facial reconstruction.

What Is a Facial Implant?
Expertly crafted facial implants are made of biocompatible materials designed to enhance and augment the natural structure of your face. Usually made from soft silicone, they are available in various shapes and sizes, allowing for individualized results.
What Can Facial Implants Achieve?
While the possibilities for facial implants are virtually limitless, the cheeks, chin, jaw, and temples are the most common sites for augmentation. Men wanting a chiseled, square-shaped jawline can benefit from these implants. Similarly, women who desire high, shapely cheekbones or a refined shape and projection of the chin use facial implants for a more youthful and defined facial contour.
Am I a Candidate for a Facial Implant?
If you have weak/receding chins or lack projection of the cheeks and desire a more defined jawline, this procedure is for you.

- Healthy adults
- Realistic in their expectations

Should Facial Implants Be Combined With Other Cosmetic Surgeries?
Combining implant placement with procedures such as facelift and neck lift surgery, neck liposuction, or blepharoplasty is common to address multiple facial concerns and achieve comprehensive, enhanced overall results.
What Is Facial Implant Recovery Like?
Recovery after facial implant surgery can vary depending on the individual and the specific procedure performed. Bandages are applied to certain implant areas to provide support and protection during early healing. For procedures involving intraoral incisions, some activity and dietary restrictions may need to be observed to ensure optimal recovery.
Like most facial surgeries, swelling, bruising, and discomfort are typical during the initial recovery period. You may not be able to evaluate your appearance immediately, so give yourself time to realize your new, improved look. Any discomfort that occurs is alleviated with medication.
Most patients can resume work and other normal activities within a week, although exercise and intense activities should be postponed for several weeks. Dr. Tolomeo will provide detailed post-operative instructions to ensure a smooth recovery.
