Chin & Facial Implants

Procedures of the face

Chin Implants

Problem

Chin which is out of balance with the rest of the face and nose, particularly on side profile. A weak chin can result from underdevelopment of the chin bone. A small chin is out of harmony and balance with the rest of the face therefore inhibiting optimal beauty and sometimes causing the illusion of a prominent nose. Ageing along the jaw line at the sides of the chin can cause the appearance of jowls and a notched, poorly defined jaw line.

Solution

Facial Implants (permanent)

Chin augmentation is a short surgery and success depends on the artistic and proper selection of your implant by your surgeon. Chin implant surgery can benefit the young patient with an inherited deficient chin plus the older patient with signs of ageing along the jaw line. Properly performed, a silicone chin implant provides enormous cosmetic benefit for the short surgical procedure and recovery involved.

The types of modern silicone chin implants used are designed to ‘wrap around’ the chin and are placed via a small incision under the chin (a common sight for a cut chin following a fall in childhood!) or intra-oral (inside the mouth). The chin implant is positioned directly on the surface of the bone in a meticulously designed pocket. Fine internal stitches hold the implant firmly in place. Results are permanent.

Injectable Chin Enhancement (lasts around 1 year)

This revolutionary new treatment has been described as “a chin implant in a syringe” and is now available for enhancement of deficient, drooping, or ageing chins and jawlines. This quick non-surgical treatment provides instant benefit using a very safe clear gel similar to the product used widely for dermal filler injections. This product is naturally occurring and non-animal derived so the chance of any reaction is extremely small. To date, this type of filler has been used safely and effectively in more than 1,500,000 treatments in 60 countries worldwide.

The treatment takes around 20 minutes in the rooms and requires only a short downtime.

Cheek Implants

Problem

Poorly defined, flat or low cheek bones that are out of balance with the chin and face. This leads to a rounded face rather than the more preferred triangular face. High cheek bones support and uplift the skin and muscles of the cheeks, assisting in the prevention of a premature aged and wrinkled appearance.

Solutions

Facial Implants (permanent)

Over the past decade, silicone cheek implants have become increasingly used in cosmetic plastic surgery. The cheek implants used have contoured designs, which now mould accurately to a patient’s face.

Modern cheek implants are soft and flexible allowing for insertion through small incisions either in the lower eyelid or intra oral (inside the mouth). The implant is positioned securely onto the surface of the cheekbone to reduce the potential for the implants to move. Results are permanent, however there are some risks, which will be discussed thoroughly.

Injectable Cheek Enhancement (lasts around 1 year)

This revolutionary new treatment has been described as a “a cheek implant in a syringe” and is now available for enhancement of facial features after hollowing due to fatty tissue loss or for more sculpted or defined chin or cheeks. This quick non-surgical treatment provides instant benefit using a very safe clear gel similar to the product used widely for dermal filler injections. This product is naturally occurring and non-animal derived so the chance of any reaction is extremely small. To date, this type of filler has been used safely and effectively in more than 1,500,000 treatments in 60 countries worldwide.

The treatment takes around 20 minutes in the rooms and requires only a short downtime.
