To be considered for facial implants, patients must be in good overall health, ideally do not smoke, and have no underlying health conditions that could cause complications during surgery or impede healing afterwards. It is a good option for patients looking to enhance how they look by adding volume to prominent areas of the face that appear to be sunken or hollowed out. The result is a younger looking profile that makes the patient’s facial features stand out.
Depending on your personal needs and aesthetic goals, our surgeons in Thailand will recommend the best type of implant for you.
If aging has caused your cheeks to look sunken and hollow, then cheek implants may be a great solution to add fullness to your face. During your procedure, Dr. White makes an incision in the upper lip to insert the implant, making your cheekbones appear more pronounced. The surgery takes approximately one hour to complete. If you are not qualified for the surgery or would like a less invasive, temporary solution, many of our patients receive injectable dermal fillers to add volume.
Some people are born with a receded chin, which can draw more attention to a prominent nose. To help balance out your features, our surgeons perform the chin implant procedure. The incision is made just under the chin, and the surgery takes about 30 to 60 minutes to complete. Once complete, you should have a more pronounced chin that enhances your profile and is more harmonious with your other facial features.
Lower Jaw Implants
The lower jaw implant can help add definition to a narrow jaw. The incision is made in the lower lip to help conceal resultant scarring. The surgery is typically completed in one to two hours. If additional procedures, such as liposuction or a neck lift, are completed at the time of your implant surgery, your procedure will most likely exceed two hours.
If you are in good health and wish to achieve a more youthful appearance, you may be a good candidate for facial implants. When you meet with your surgeon in Phuket for an initial consultation, he will help you understand what the procedure can potentially do for you. It is important to remain realistic with your expectations, as surgery affects every patient differently, and not all results are the same. Overall, the facial implants procedure proves to be beneficial for the following reasons:
- Restores the lost contour in the cheeks
- Creates added definition in the jaw and chin
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Long-lasting results
Depending on your personal needs and aesthetic goals, you surgeon will recommend the best type of implant for you.
Before starting, doctors usually put patients under local or general anesthesia to make them comfortable during the procedure. Following this, incisions will be made in strategic positions in the patient’s face, or inside the oral cavity, through which the incisions will be inserted and placed in their specific implant pockets. Incisions are closed using absorbable sutures or skin adhesive
Following your implant surgery, you can expect some bruising, swelling and discomfort, but this should fade over the first couple days. To aid in the healing process, keep your head elevated and use cold packs.
Patients typically feel ready to return to work after the first seven to ten days of recovery. More details about your recovery process will be discussed during your consultation when your treatment plan has been established.
