Balances overall facial features
Facelifts have long been the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure for patients looking to offset the effects of aging. However, many who wish to improve the appearance of their face may be concerned about the potential of scarring – and also don’t want to make such a dramatic change to their face. For those looking to achieve enhanced, precise and permanent facial balance and proportion, Facial Implants performed by Dr. Hochman as a Board-Certified facial plastic surgeon are an excellent alternative to facelifts.
What are Facial Implants?
Facial Implants are specially formed solid materials compatible with human tissues that are designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face. If you’re bothered by a small chin, weak jaw, small cheeks, or lack of facial contour, this remarkable technology offers many advantages.
Benefits of Facial Implants
· Facial Implants are placed in highly precise locations to augment your features with significant results — without drastically altering your appearance or undergoing extensive facial surgery.
· With Facial Implants, you can add definition and volume in all the right places to lift and fill your facial features, while also smoothing the texture of your skin.
· In addition to improving the shape of your face, Facial Implants can provide you with a younger-looking appearance.
· Facial Implants are permanent, convenient and cost-effective. Unlike dermal fillers and injectables, Facial Implants require one procedure, eliminating retreatment costs.
· Because there’s no need for extensive incisions, there’s less healing time and risk of noticeable scarring.
Chin and Cheek Implants are among today’s most popular and effective Facial Implant procedures.
Cheek Implants: Strengthen your cheekbones to look years younger
If you’re suffering with hollow or sunken cheeks, it could make you appear older than you really are. Full cheeks and prominent cheekbones are a sign of youth and beauty, and they can be achieved with cheek augmentation.
Patients are typically thrilled with their fuller cheeks and contoured cheekbones following implant surgery. Not only is the procedure used for simply cosmetic reasons, but it can also correct lifelong disfigurements and asymmetry.
Cheek Augmentation is a procedure that is designed to address the drooping of the cheekbone and “cheek pad” which results in a “hollowed” appearance. Cheek augmentation is not designed to give bigger cheekbones. It is to replace the fullness that has been lost in the cheekbone area through the aging process.
Chin Implants: Transform your face and enhance your confidence
A defined and chiseled chin is a dominant characteristic of masculinity – and it’s also associated with striking femininity. . Chin implant surgery, or mentoplasty, is facial plastic surgery that can create a larger, more projected or more prominent chin in individuals who desire more definition in this facial feature.
Plastic surgery of the chin not only strengthens the look of the chin, but because the underlying structure is altered, the jawline can appear improved as well. The nose may be large, the chin may be recessed, or both, resulting in facial imbalance. Patients interested in undergoing a chin implant procedure are often uncomfortable with their profile. By harmonizing the features, you can enhance the look of your face from all angles, especially the profile view.
Chin Augmentation is designed to enhance the overall balance of the lower face by improving deficiencies in the chin structure. This procedure is done on both men and women and is tailored specifically to each patient’s needs. A male patient may require a larger chin to give him a more “masculine” jawline; a female patient may require a chin that does not protrude but needs “support” on either side in order to have a clean and attractive jawline. A small or weak chin can make the neck appear “fatty” and undefined. The result is a subtle but distinct change in the overall aesthetic harmony of the face.
