Do you think your facial features are out-of-balance? If so, and you feel self-conscious about your appearance, you may want to consider getting facial implants to establish balance between your facial features. But where are facial implants placed.
Facial implants are used to enhance facial contours, and improve facial balance. They are typically made of silicone, and are available in different shapes, styles, and sizes.
Where are facial implants placed?
Facial implants are typically placed in the cheeks, jaw, or chin, to improve the shape and appearance of the face, and adequately augment the facial structure.
The cheeks tend to lose fullness with age due to the decline in skin elasticity, and the downward movement of the natural fat pads. Cheek implants fill out sunken cheeks, and restore a youthful appearance. They are inserted via incisions made in the mouth, and positioned on the cheekbone.
Jaw implants can correct a weak jaw as they help to refine the jawline, so that it is distinct from the neck. Jaw implants are placed along the jawline, through incisions made in the mouth.
Chin implants can correct a small or recessed chin, so that it is better aligned with the other facial features. Chin implants are generally positioned around the chin bone through an incision made either beneath the chin, or inside the mouth. Chin implant surgery is often recommended alongside jaw implant surgery, to achieve optimal facial balance
