Volume Enhancement / Facial Implants
As we age, our skin and underlying structures begin to lose volume and structural support. Factors such as smoking, sun damage, weight gain and loss, genetics, and muscle and ligament laxity all lead an aged look. There are multiple procedures, both surgical and non-surgical, that will replace the volume lost to the hands of time.
In addition to fat transfer, facial implants can be placed in a variety of area of the face. Facial implants are primarily used for cheek and chin rejuvenation and are customized for each patient. Facial implants provide a natural look. The implants come in a variety of sizes to meet each patients’ needs and desires. They provide a permanent volume enhancement in one easy step. Unlike fat transfer, there is no potential resorption which alleviates the need for a possible second procedure. They may be placed through the mouth, so there is no visible scar.
When combined with other procedures such as facelifts, skin resurfacing, brow lifts and eye lid surgery, volume rejuvenation finishes the look.
Augmentation of the chin can be done with either an implant or by moving the bone. In addition to giving the chin more projection, it may help to tighten the neck.
Full cheeks are a trait associated with a youthful appearance. Volumizing the cheeks may be done with filler, fat transfer, or implants.
By taking fat from one area and moving it to the face can help with treating volume loss and irregular contours. Fat is a great method to treat the area around the eyes, temples, cheeks, deep folds, and lips.
