Facial Implants

Facial Implants | Cheek Implants | Chin Implants | Salt Lake City

Disproportionate facial features can cause a person to have reduced self-esteem and low self-confidence.  A recessed chin, flat cheeks, or an undefined jaw are all things that can be corrected with facial implants. While nearly any area of your face can be augmented with facial implants, the cheekbones, chin and jaw are the most common sites for augmentation.

Facial implants create balance and add proportion to the structural appearance of your face and add definition to your features. With facial implant surgery, the results are immediate.

Am I A Candidate For Facial Implant Surgery?
Plastic surgery with facial implants is best performed on people whose head and skull have reached physical maturity, which generally occurs in late adolescence. This procedure is a good option for you if you are physically healthy, you do not smoke and you maintain a positive outlook and have specific goals in mind for the improvement of your facial contours.

The Procedure
Dr. Rodrigues will make incisions based upon the location and size of the implants, but are in areas where there will be no noticeable scarring. After inserting the implant, Dr. Rodrigues will suture the incisions and apply sterile dressings.

Recovery
You may expect some pain and discomfort for a week to ten days, and there will be visible swelling which will diminish over the next several months.

Dr. Rodrigues will be happy to consult with you personally to help you explore your options for the best results.
