Facial implant surgery is a transformative procedure that can successfully enhance and define various facial contours. This treatment presents a unique approach for those seeking to emphasize specific facial features or restore volume to areas with natural deficits. Unlike other methods such as facial fat grafting or fillers, which offer results that can change or are temporary, facial implant surgery provides a permanent and definitive solution to structural augmentation.
Through this procedure, Dr. Li can create a more harmonious facial appearance, whether by augmenting your chin, jawline, cheekbones, or other facial regions. Dr. Li is a skilled and experienced surgeon who can customize your facial implant surgery to align with your aesthetic goals and facial proportions. During your surgery, Dr. Li will precisely place the implants in the targeted areas, creating a natural and balanced look that accentuates your unique facial composition. Facial implants are made from rigorously tested, biocompatible materials, to ensure their safety and durability.
By opting for this treatment approach, you’re choosing to invest in a lasting transformation that enhances your facial structure and boosts your confidence. If you’re considering facial implant surgery, a consultation with Dr. Li will provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the procedure, personalized recommendations, and the opportunity to embark on a journey toward a more defined and balanced facial appearance.
Facial implants come in a wide range of options to enhance and sculpt various areas of your face. Each of these options can be used to provide you with customized and balanced facial harmony. Dr. Li specializes in different types of facial implants to address your unique needs, including:
• Chin implants – Chin implants are used to create better symmetry and improve your facial, neck, and jawline profiles. Whether you desire a more defined chin or wish to correct a receding chin, this implant can be used to craft a harmonious facial appearance.
• Temple implants – These facial implants provide volume and contour to the temples. Temple implants can create a youthful and refreshed look by restoring fullness to the upper face.
• Jaw implants – Jaw implants define and enhance the jawline. This type of implant creates a stronger and more masculine or feminine appearance, depending on your desired look and type of implant used.
• Cheek implants – These implants add volume and prominence to the cheekbones to construct a youthful and sculpted appearance. This option is particularly popular among those seeking to fix sunken cheekbones.
Each type of facial implant can be tailored to your specific facial anatomy and desired outcome and comes in a wide variety of sizes and shapes. For patients who want ultimate accuracy and control in implant design and features, custom implants can also be created. In this process, Dr. Li typically reviews 3D scans of your facial anatomy and works with the implant company to create implants that are truly one-of-a kind and matched to you.
Irrespective of whether premade or custom implants are chosen, Dr. Li’s extensive expertise ensures that they are carefully selected and skillfully placed to achieve a natural, balanced, and long-lasting result.
Dr. Li’s technique creates both natural-looking results and minimal scarring. Tiny incisions are carefully placed in concealed areas, often strategically hidden within natural creases or even inside the mouth. These discreet incisions allow for the precise and secure placement of the facial implants.
Implants are inserted through the incisions using specialized tools. Their placement varies depending on the type of implant and the specific area being enhanced. Additionally, our expert team uses advanced photographic analysis to demonstrate how this procedure can specifically benefit you. With photographic morphing, you can visualize how the implants will fit into your facial structure to ensure a perfect match with your unique features and aesthetic vision.
The treatment is performed under general or local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Whether you’re seeking a stronger jawline, more defined cheekbones, or a more symmetrical chin, Dr. Li’s precision guarantees that your facial implants are expertly placed to create your dream look while still maintaining a beautifully natural appearance.
