Your face is uniquely yours. It defines you, and it helps you to communicate and influence others. However, genetic factors, lifestyle, sun exposure and the environment can cause your face to age, appear tired and sunken, and cause your features to look unbalanced. This can lead to problems with your self-confidence as well as communicating with other people. Facial implants, such as cheek and chin implants, can increase your self-esteem and enhance your appearance by improving your facial structure and providing an attractive, harmonious balance to your face.

Facial Implant Procedure

Preparing for Facial Implants
Your first step to facial implant surgery is a consultation with Dr. Golshani. In the weeks before your surgery, it's best to avoid smoking, alcohol, and any medications that increase bleeding.
During the Facial Implant Surgery
You'll receive anesthesia before the surgery begins. Face implant incisions are normally made inside your mouth. Dr. Golshani will insert the implants through this incision, and position them to give you the look you want.
Facial Implant Recovery
Bandages will be applied to your face to help it keep the shape of your new implants. You might have some pain and swelling. You'll receive prescriptions for medications that can help.

Lower Jaw Implants
These implants can help reshape the jawline to create wider, stronger jaws. Implants are placed inside of the lower lip.
By bringing the chin into balance with the rest of your face, chin implants can add length or projection to small chins. The implant is placed inside your lower lip, or under your chin.
