Designed to enhance, rejuvenate and reconstruct facial contours, facial implants come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Most commonly used to add volume to the cheeks, increase the projection of a receding chin, enhance a weak jawline and smooth undereye hollows, these implants offer permanent improvement for facial asymmetry or deficiencies.
Mainline Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jason Bloom uses facial implants for both aesthetic and reconstructive procedures. Incisions are hidden under the chin, inside the mouth or within the lower eyelid so they are nearly invisible once healed and the procedures themselves are relatively fast. Expect swelling and bruising for up to a week, and restricted activity for up to four to six weeks to prevent implants from shifting before adequately healing has taken place. Facial implants can be used on their own, but Mainline Facial Plastic Surgeon Dr. Jason Bloom may recommend additional facial plastic surgery procedures to optimize facial harmony and bring all of the facial features into proportion.
