Individuals who would like to add contour and definition to facial features can benefit from facial implants at our Long Island, New York practice. Cheek implants can add volume to the cheeks for a more youthful and defined appearance, and chin implants can restore balance to the face as a whole by augmenting a recessed chin or offsetting a prominent nose. Doctors at the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group are skilled and experienced facial plastic surgeons who have studied at some of the most prestigious medical institutions in the world. Whether you desire facial implants or another solution like facelift or brow lift surgery, our goal is to offer you safe, effective procedures with results that look natural and beautiful.
Contact the plastic surgeons at LIPSG to schedule a consultation for facial implants. At this initial consultation, you will be shown a computerized image of what the results of the procedure may look like after surgery. With Vectra 3-D technology, you can see the likely outcome before you set foot in the operating room.
Cheek implants can improve cheeks that are poorly defined and add new contours to the face. The implants are made of a strong, silicone elastomer, and are inserted through small incisions made in the inside of the mouth or in the lower eyelids. Pockets are created in the cheek tissue to make room for the implant. Patients who have had a lifetime of facial narrowness or have lost cheek contour with age can have results that restore balance to facial features give the entire face a better proportion. Cheek implants can be performed as an outpatient and the procedure typically takes about an hour to complete.
The aesthetic effects of a recessed chin or a prominent nose can be corrected and put into better balance with chin implants (chin augmentation). Implants made of silicone elastomer are placed through an incision made underneath the chin or inside the mouth. The implant is positioned in front of the jawbone, and can ultimately give the entire face an improved facial contour. Chin implant surgery is often performed on an outpatient basis and completed in about an hour or less.
Doctors with Long Island Plastic Surgical Group will go over all aspects of the procedure with you at your initial consultation and address your concerns. Our plastic surgeons are highly skilled and experienced and will take every precaution to minimize the risk of complications.
