Face implant can be caused by environmental factors such as trauma or aging. These are cosmetic surgical procedures performed with materials called silicon or medpor in order to correct the asymmetries in deformities that disrupt the harmony between cheekbones and jaw. Facial implants provide a qualified appearance to people's faces when viewed from the front or from the side. It is one of the most frequently used cosmetic surgery applications due to its feature of ensuring the integrity of the cheekbones and chin.
Today, with the development of technology, very successful results are emerging in face implant procedures. Before the face implant technology developed, bones or cartilages taken from the patient's own body were used to solve the problems that disrupted the harmony between cheekbones and chin. Now, without the need for such procedures, with the help of ready-made implants and plastic surgery experts, surgeries result in perfect results.
What are Face Implants?
Which areas of your face is it applied?
Facial implants are used especially for chin and cheeks. Thanks to these implants, the face will have a much more impressive and aesthetic appearance. In addition, the face implant treatment method visibly eliminates many aesthetic problems on people's faces. In particular, it makes the nose look much nicer. So, what are the implants applied to the faces of patients for various reasons?
▬ Jaw Implant
The harmony between chin and nose is a factor that directly determines the general appearance of the face. If the straight line descending from the forehead to the upper lip when standing straight goes down to the chin and is in line with the tip of the chin, the nose angle with the chin is ideal. However, if it is not aligned and the chin is outside this line, we are dealing with a jaw that is too strong. In such a case, the nose looks flattened or small. If the chin does not reach this line, then the chin is not clear enough. This causes a normal nose to appear much larger than it is. In order to correct these situations, the ratio of nose and chin is corrected as much as possible by performing chin implant surgery by specialist doctors.
▬ Jaw Implant surgery process
In jaw implant surgery, a prosthesis is placed in front of the jawbone. An incision is made through the mouth or under the chin, optionally. Generally, the surgeon prefers to place the implant inside the mouth, but if the face lift is performed together with the surgery, it is more appropriate to make an incision under the chin. Thus, the same incision can be used for both procedures. Jaw implant operation takes an average of half an hour.
Cheek implant is applied to the cheekbones of the patients. The cheekbones, which are much more prominent, give a very attractive expression to women. For this reason, cheek implants are often preferred by women for aesthetic purposes. Cheek implants are generally in demand by popular people (models, actors, etc.) in front of the camera. In general, patients are satisfied with the results and enjoy their new appearance.
▬ Cheek Implant surgery process
In cheek implants, the incision is generally made in the mouth between the cheek and gums. Therefore, surgery scar is not visible. However, if the surgery is performed with one of the eyelid or facelift surgeries, the inside of the lower eyelids or the front of your ears are preferred for the incision. According to the operation planning, in cases where the front part of the cheeks of the patient will be protruded, the implant is placed from the front, and if the patient's face is intended to be wider, the implant is placed vertically on the cheekbone. Cheek implant operation takes about an hour.
Complications that may occur
Post-operative infection is a risk present in all surgical interventions. Bleeding, nerve damage, implant slippage, and asymmetry are among the current risks.
