If you would like to enhance facial volume or the contours of the face, facial implants can be an effective long-term solution. Atlantic Surgical Associates offers facial implants and other facial surgeries to men and women living in New Brunswick, West Long Branch, Edison, and the neighboring cities of New York and New Jersey.
What Are Facial Implants?
Facial implants are a facial augmentation technique that can be used to enhance facial volume or strengthen the facial features. Facial implants are designed from durable, safe materials, so patients can enjoy long-lasting results that look and feel completely natural. Common facial implants include:
- Cheek implants
- Lip implants
- Chin implants
Facial implants can help produce a more youthful appearance or enhance certain features of your face to improve overall facial balance. At Atlantic Surgical Associates, we are prepared to work with you to determine the optimal type, size, and shape of your facial implant in order to provide you with the results you are looking for.
How Much Do Facial Implants Cost?
The cost of your facial implant treatment will vary depending on the type of implant desired. During your consultation, you and Dr. Volshteyn will discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the best approach to your facial implant procedure. Once your treatment plan is developed, we will be able to provide you with the cost of your treatment. To learn more about what you can expect and how you can pay for your treatment, please refer to our page on plastic surgery financing.
What is the Facial Implant Procedure Like?
Facial implant procedures are typically performed under general anesthesia to keep patients safe and comfortable during the procedure. The incisions required for these procedures will depend on the type of implant being placed. However, most implants only require small incisions inside the mouth, resulting in scarring that is completely hidden from view. Once incisions are made, your desired implant will be positioned and secured into place. Then, the incisions will be closed and the treatment will be complete.
What is the Recovery Period Like After Facial Implants?
After receiving facial implants, patients may need to take a few days off of work and other normal activities in order to rest and heal. During this time, it is common to experience swelling, bruising, and varying levels of discomfort. You may need to adjust your diet following the surgery, as the face may be sore, making it difficult to chew. However, you should be able to return to most normal activities within a week of your procedure, with any residual swelling fading shortly after.
Are Facial Implants Permanent?
Facial implants are designed to be permanent, so you can enjoy the results from your facial implant procedure for years to come. However, if you ever decide that you no longer like your facial implants or you would like to have them replaced, this can be done in a procedure similar to your initial implant experience.
