Revitalize Your Appearance with Facial Implants
In the pursuit of enhancing our appearance, facial implants have emerged as a popular cosmetic procedure. Our highly skilled Philadelphia, PA plastic surgeon, Dr. Thomas C. Spalla offers this versatile solution for individuals looking to augment their facial features and achieve a more balanced and harmonious look. Whether it’s a stronger jawline, higher cheekbones, or a more defined chin, facial implants can provide a lasting transformation.
What Are Facial Implants?
Facial implants are medical-grade devices designed to augment specific features of the face. They’re typically made of biocompatible materials like silicone or porous polyethylene, ensuring safety and compatibility with the body. These implants are customized to fit each individual’s unique facial anatomy, providing a natural and balanced appearance.
Benefits of Facial Implants
- Enhanced Facial Structure: Facial implants can add volume and definition to areas that may be lacking in contour or projection. This can lead to a more aesthetically pleasing and proportionate appearance.
- Long-lasting Results: Once implanted, these devices are designed to be permanent. This means you can enjoy the benefits of your enhanced facial features for many years to come.
- Minimal Downtime: Compared to some other surgical procedures, recovery time for facial implants is relatively short. Most patients can resume their normal activities within a few days to a week.
- Customizable: Facial implants come in various shapes and sizes, allowing for a tailored approach to address individual concerns and preferences.
Candidacy for Facial Implants
Dr. Spalla typically recommends facial implants for individuals who:
- Have good overall health
- Have a desire to enhance or balance certain facial features
- Have fully developed facial bone structure
How the Procedure Works
The process begins with a thorough consultation with your award-winning plastic surgeon, Dr. Spalla. During this appointment, he will assess your facial anatomy, discuss your goals, and determine the best approach.
Dr. Spalla will select the appropriate implant type, shape, and size based on your unique facial structure and desired outcome.
The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia. An incision is made, usually in inconspicuous locations (such as inside the mouth or along natural creases). The implants are carefully positioned, ensuring they blend seamlessly with your natural features.
The surgeon will close the incisions with sutures and may apply dressings or bandages to facilitate proper healing.
After a brief observation period, you will be allowed to return home. It’s essential to follow post-operative care instructions provided by your surgeon to ensure a smooth recovery.
