Facial ImplantsYour face, more than any other part of your body, is what defines you. You use it to communicate, to be recognized, and to influence other people. Yet, at its most fundamental level, your face is a composite of structural elements - chin, cheeks, brow, jaw seen in the context of your whole face.
Facial cosmetic surgery addresses the relationship between these structural elements that creates the look that is uniquely yours. When one of these elements is too big, too small, too prominent, it tends to throw the face out of balance. Facial cosmetic surgery, a form of plastic surgery that changes the basic structure of your face, may use carefully styled implants to create a more attractive, harmonious balance among your facial features. Facial implants can help you achieve, for example, a wider and stronger jawline, higher cheekbones or a fuller face, or added length and projection to a small chin.
What to Expect from Facial Cosmetic Surgery
Facial cosmetic surgery can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence. But the results won't necessarily match your ideal, or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with Dr. Sproule during your initial facial cosmetic surgery visit.
The best candidates for facial cosmetic surgery are people looking for improvement, not perfection, in the way they look. If you're physically healthy and realistic in your expectations, you may be a good candidate.
Most candidates are younger people interested in a fundamental change in the shape and balance of their face. For older patients, facial implants may be used in conjunction with other surgical procedures, such as a forehead lift or a facelift, to help restore a more youthful look.
