Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, and Dr. Brown perform facial implants for patients in Baltimore, Washington, D.C., Annapolis and the surrounding areas of Maryland.
The proportion and balance of your face can affect the overall aesthetic of your appearance. If you feel as though your face lacks appropriate contours or balance, facial implants may be the right option for you. These implants bring curves and/or volume to your face and give the definition that you seek. Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, and Dr. Brown have been giving their Baltimore patients excellent results with their facial implants.
What Are Facial Implants?
Strong cheekbones reflect the light and add symmetry, and all classic ideals of beauty include strong cheekbones and a well-defined chin. Facial implants create symmetry among your facial features by establishing balance and proportion that didn’t exist before. Facial implants are specially formed FDA-approved solid materials, such as silicone or porous polyethylene that are compatible with human tissues and are designed to enhance or augment the physical structures of your face. The precise type and size of facial implants that would be ideally suited for your needs requires an evaluation of your goals and a physical examination of the features you wish to correct. So if you have been considering facial implants to enhance your facial symmetry, then you owe it to yourself to schedule your consultation now with Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, and Dr. Brown to learn more about facial implants at our Baltimore center.
Benefits Of Facial Implants
While any area of your face can be augmented with implants, the cheek, chin, and jaw are the most common sites for facial implants. As we age, our cheekbones lose volume and without that underlying structure, skin and muscle start to slide, and instead of strong features, jowls and folds of skin can emerge. Chin implants can increase the size and projection of a chin that is not in proportion with the forehead and mid-face. Many people believe that building up the cheeks is the ultimate solution in anti-aging because when you fill in the cheeks, everything is pulled up and nasolabial folds are reduced as the skin on your face gets tighter.
Who is a Good Candidate For Facial Implants?
If you are bothered by a small chin, weak jaw or lack of facial contour, plastic surgery with facial implants may benefit you. For instance, if you have a small or recessed chin that seems to disappear into your neck rather than appearing as a distinct facial feature even though you are an individual of normal weight, then facial implants may be right for you. Or, if you have a weak jaw, which is a jaw that is not well defined and distinct from your neck or one that slopes rather then angles from your ear to the chin, then facial implants can make your jaw more defined. Cheek implants increase the projection of your cheekbones. They add volume to those areas that may be recessed or flat. So, if you want a better proportion to your face while still looking like you, then you may be a good candidate for facial implants. Contact us now to set up your facial implant consultation.
How Are Facial Implants Performed?
These soft implants are placed at the chin, in the cheeks or on top of the cheekbones depending on the results desired by the patient. During this surgery, a small incision is placed in the mouth or under the chin in a natural fold. This leaves no noticeable scarring for patients.
The procedure usually takes less than an hour and it leaves the patients with a defined jaw, higher cheekbones or a more prominent chin, depending on the results they desire. The patients of Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis and Dr. Brown love that there is little post-operative downtime or discomfort from this procedure.
How Much Do Facial Implants Cost?
Depending on the amount of implants you need to achieve the contours and definition you desire, the cost tends to vary. Following your consultation with the surgeon, you will meet with our patient coordinator to discuss payment options and price. Dr. Papel, Dr. Kontis, and Dr. Brown offer patient financing to make your procedure more affordable.
The way you feel about your appearance can be affected if you lack definition and curves on your face. To achieve the facial features you desire, facial implants can be a fabulous solution.
