Given below are some of the more popular facial implant procedures:

  • Chin implant – These can be used to increase anterior, lateral and downward projection of the chin. The implant is placed internally through the lower lip, or externally under the chin. An incision inside the mouth or under the chin is made, creating a pocket into which the implant is inserted. If another cosmetic procedure, such as a face lift or eyelid surgery is being performed at the same time, your surgeon may insert the implants through those incisions.
  • Cheek implants – The implants are placed either through incisions inside the upper lip or through the lower eyelid.
  • Jaw angle implants – These can be placed individually, in pairs, or as a large wraparound implant that includes the chin. They are used to increase lateral and/or downward projection of the ramus. They are placed through incisions inside the lower lip. The incision site will be secured with sutures that will dissolve in about one week.
  • Paranasal implant – This involves placing a specially designed implant between the nose and upper lip to increase anterior projection of the upper jaw. It is inserted through a small incision inside the mouth.
