Facial Implants Can Bring Improved Contours and Proportions
Well-defined features can bring beauty and character to your face. If you have a weak chin or sunken cheeks, facial implants placed by Dr. Kenneth Smart in Frisco, TX, can enhance your facial proportions for an overall enhanced look. Dr. Smart will carefully plan your facial implant procedure so that you can achieve subtle, natural results. During your consultation, he will determine the most appropriate size and shape of silicone implants, and the most suitable locations for placement.

Placing Facial Implants
Facial implants are made of biocompatible silicone. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes. During your consultation, Dr. Smart will suggest an implant that most closely matches your natural features and treatment goals. He can trim or shape the implants for further customization. To ensure optimal results, Dr. Smart will work with you during the planning process, and will explain what you can expect after your procedure.
The surgery will take about one hour. General anesthesia will be administered beforehand. Dr. Smart will create hidden incisions, often placed under your chin or inside your mouth. Once these incisions heal, scarring will be virtually invisible. He will then carefully insert the implants into a pocket of tissue in the treatment area. Once the implants are placed, he will close the incisions with tiny sutures.
You should plan to rest and recover for one week. After this period, you should be able to resume work and normal activities. However, you should avoid lifting and strenuous exercise for four to six weeks. Dr. Smart will provide you with post-operative instructions, and you will need to maintain a schedule of follow-up appointments throughout your recovery. After surgery, there will be some swelling and bruising. These side effects will diminish after a few weeks, and you can then begin to enjoy your procedure results.
If you want to enhance the contours of your cheeks or chin, you may be a good candidate for facial implants.
Candidates for Facial Implants
If you want to enhance the contours of your cheeks or chin, you may be a good candidate for facial implants. This treatment can:
- Give you a stronger, more defined chin
- Improve your profile
- Enhance the contours of your jaw
- Give you more pronounced cheekbones
- Reverse facial sagging that can occur with aging
- Restore your facial features after an accident or birth defect
While your aesthetic goals are an important consideration, they are not the only factors that can impact your candidacy for treatment. To be eligible for facial implant surgery, you should be in good physical health. Elective surgery may not be a good option if you have an autoimmune disorder or blood disorder. Smoking can impact your recovery, and you should be willing to stop smoking for at least one week before, and two weeks after your surgery.
If you do not qualify for facial implants, Dr. Smart may recommend an alternative procedure, such as fat grafting, which could be more in line with your goals and needs.
Benefits of Facial Implants
Facial implants can provide stunning aesthetic effects. At the same time, Dr. Smart works to provide subtle results. Unlike other forms of facial enhancement, implants are permanent. There is a very low risk of rejection of the implants, and overall, facial implants pose a low risk of any complication. Because of the many benefits of this procedure, you could also enjoy a significant boost of self-confidence.
