Why Do Patients Get Face Implants?

  • You want to enhance your receding chin
  • You desire to reshape or sculpt your jawline
  • You want to even out your facial features
  • You want to boost your cheekbone’s volume
  • You want to restore your face after a traumatic event, injury, or illness

Common Facial Implant Surgery Types

The type of implant you choose will depend on what area of the face you want to enhance. Is your chin not as defined as it used to be? Are you showing signs of your age with sagging or thin skin? Do you wish for fuller cheeks? Consulting with Dr. Guyette will help you determine which treatments are right for you, and we can make recommendations based on your desires. The implant treatments most requested by patients are:

Chin Implants

Your chin is among your most defining facial features. Receding chins are common among patients. Receding chins cause faces to appear disproportionate and faded as if part of the neck. Chin implants, or genioplasty, balance out the face and add definition and depth to the chin. There are many sizes and shapes of chin implants. Dr. Guyette will select the most advantageous, customized implant for you. The procedure is performed in our office surgery center.

Cheek Implants

Sagging of the facial fat pads and thinning skin are a natural part of our aging process, but cheek implants combat these changes. The carefully selected implant is inserted into a small incision in the mouth. A successful cheek implant results in restored volume, defined cheekbones, and a more youthful appearance.

Can I Combine Face Implants?

Yes. Merging the cheek and chin implants is a very common practice that is immensely beneficial in several ways. First, combining treatments reduces operating and personal costs because your doctor performs the procedures simultaneously rather than performing two separate procedures. Secondly, combined treatments reduce the number of appointments and decreases your recovery and downtime. These procedures can also compliment neck, eye, and forehead lifts. If you are dissatisfied with multiple areas of your face, combining treatments may be right for you.

What Happens During Cheek Implants?

A cheek implant procedure usually takes 45 minutes to an hour to complete. A straightforward cheek implant procedure without any other services looks like this:

  • Dr. Guyette makes a small incision in the patient’s mouth, below the cheek,
  • the implant is gently inserted into the incision,
  • titanium screws are used to hold the cheek implant in place, and finally,
  • the incisions are usually closed with dissolvable stitches.

Before and after Facial Implant Surgery

Dr. Guyette will make recommendations on the food, drink, and medications you should take and which you should avoid before and after your surgery takes place. We ask smokers to quit temporarily while they are recovering. Make sure to wear a loose, comfortable shirt or outfit that doesn’t require pulling it over your face. You must have a friend, loved one, or someone you trust to give you a ride from our practice. If possible, have them stay with you during your first night at home to look after you. Doing so will ensure you have help during your recovery and keep you safe in case complications arise.
Recovery time varies depending on the procedure that you have, but you should only need to take one week or less off work in most cases. Making sure you get the right amount of rest and abstain from stressful activities is crucial to a successful recovery and seeing the results you want quicker. Facial swelling is normal and expected. Swelling typically peaks at day 2-3 and then decreases rapidly. Our doctors will go into more detail about best recovery practices during your consultation and after the procedure.
