It’s easy to focus on what’s happening on the outside of our skin when we age, but what about what is beneath? It’s common, as the years pass by that our facial bones change with a predictable pattern. For some, an aged facial skeleton will change how we look or enhance aesthetic difficulties even more. Addressing this aging process requires rejuvenating the underlying bony structure, which can result in positive changes to the overlying skin, also known as Facial Implants. For those interested in adding tissue, volume, or definition to specific facial structures, facial implants may be the solution you’ve been searching for.
Facial implants may not be the top requested plastic surgery procedure in Beverly Hills, but they can definitely offer tremendous aesthetic benefits to the right patients who need them. This type of surgery can help patients born with facial deformities, patients who have suffered from trauma resulting in changes to the bones of the face, and those who simply desire a more aesthetic facial appearance due to aging transformations or genetics. As each area of our faces is unique, so are the structure varieties underneath. There are three different types of implants designed for these specific areas, created to enhance the three major soft-tissue spots on the face.
Implants are designed not only to improve specific contours but to gently lift the surrounding tissues for an all-over effect that can help you look more attractive and youthful. Here at the Beverly Hills Aesthetic Surgical Institute, we have seen our Facial Implant patients enjoy the following benefits from this type of procedure:
Plastic surgery with facial implants is best performed on people whose heads and skulls have reached physical maturity. You may be a good candidate for facial implants in Beverly Hills if you:
Chances are, if you’ve found this page, you’re someone that believes you can enhance your life with the proper Facial Implants. The first step to achieving these aesthetic ambitions in Beverly Hills is to contact Aesthetic Surgical Institute for an appointment. During the initial consultation, you may be asked to look in a mirror and point out exactly what you would like to see improved. This will help us understand your expectations and determine whether they can realistically be achieved. After giving you a complete examination and learning what you would like, we will create your surgical plan. If you agree with the direction of it, then you can schedule your procedure with our Patient Coordinator.
When you arrive on the day of your Facial Implant, you’ll be greeted with open arms and the unwavering intent to have you feeling comfortable and confident. David Saadat, MD, may elect to perform the surgery under local or general anesthesia based on your preference and what our team feels is appropriate. The augmentation for most of our patients includes the periorbital region (the bony area that encloses the eye), the cheek, the chin, and the jawline. Once under anesthesia, we will begin by making a thin, small incision in the targeted area. When getting augmentations, an insert will be placed in this newly formed pocket, with the size and type of insert being predetermined during your consultations.
In some cases of Chin Implantation, an external incision under the chin is necessary but hides very well. For placement of an implant along the cheek, an incision can be made inside the eyelid to prevent a visible scar. Alternatively, an incision can also be made through the skin of the lower eyelid within a pre-existing wrinkle line.
Similarly, an incision can also be made inside the mouth for augmentation of the cheeks and malar regions (lower cheek). This can add volume to your face, restoring a youthful and balanced appearance. For placement of a chin implant, we may use an incision inside your mouth or under the chin; this helps the scar hide efficiently. Once Dr. David Saadat is finished, we use sutures, adhesives, or tapes to close the incision. The procedure should take about 30 to 60 minutes in total. Surgery time varies based on the needs of our patients.
What makes Facial Implants so popular is the amount of time required for recovery. The procedure is fairly quick, with just a few incisions near the treatment area to perform the insertion. You may experience slight discomfort and swelling near the area, which will subside once the sutures are removed within a week. Most of our patients make a quick recovery and return to work within one to two weeks. A full healing plan will be provided by our Patient Coordinator, putting you on the fastest path to a full recovery with your new implants.
The cost of a Facial Implant in Beverly Hills is determined by several factors, including the degree of implant and location desired to achieve your preferred results.
