What are facial implants?

Facial implants are used to improve and enhance facial contours. These implants help provide a more harmonious balance to your face and features so that you feel better about the way you look. There are many implants available, manufactured from a variety of materials. Facial implants can help strengthen a jawline or bring the chin or cheekbones into balance with the rest of the face.

What are the advantages of Facial Implants over other procedures?

Facial implants or cheek implants provide several advantages over other facial procedures. While dermal fillers and fat transfers may be used to enhance the midface region, these treatments don’t provide permanent results. Even procedures such as a facelift may last only a few years, requiring follow-up treatments. Facial implants are a revolutionary new way to enhance the facial features to provide long-term results. Perhaps the biggest advantage of this procedure is that the surgery is also reversible, so if you ever change your mind and want to try a different size or shape implant, Dr. Bootstaylor can exchange the implants for you easily and quickly. Facial implants are becoming widely popular among patients and doctors alike, because this procedure outperforms dermal injections, fat transfers, and lifts, with less risk and less downtime.

How is a Facial Implant procedure performed?

Dr. Bootstaylor performs chin, cheek, and lower jaw surgery. Each is a separate operation with its own parameters. Though some facial implant surgeries can be completed with local anesthesia, most are done under complete anesthesia.

Insertion of a chin implant may take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. The implant will be inserted into a pocket over the front of the jawbone. The small incision to create the pocket and insert the implant is placed inside the mouth (along the lower lip) or in the skin just under the chin area.

Cheek implant surgery usually takes 30 to 45 minutes. When cheek implants are done with another cosmetic procedure, such as a facelift, the implants may be inserted through the incisions made for those procedures. Otherwise, an incision is made either inside your upper lip or your lower eyelid. A pocket is then formed, and an implant is inserted.

Insertion of a jaw implant usually takes about one to two hours. Internal incisions are made on either side of the lower lip to provide access for creating a pocket into which the lower jaw implant can be inserted. Dissolving sutures are used to close the incisions.

Dr. Bootstaylor performs surgical procedures at Emory University Hospital Midtown, Piedmont Hospital, Northside Hospital, Lake Spivey Ambulatory Surgery Care, LLC, and WellStar Windy Hill Hospital.

How quickly will I heal after Facial Implants?

You may feel and look better in a short period of time; however, it may not be advisable to participate in certain activities, especially activity that may result in the face being jarred or bumped for several weeks. Dr. Bootstaylor will advise you on how to optimize the healing process.

What are the risks associated with Facial Implants?

Facial implants can produce remarkable improvements. However, as with any surgery, problems may occur, and you need to be informed about such possibilities. Dr. Bootstaylor will help you understand all the risks associated with the procedure in which you are interested.

Dr. B is board certified in beautification! "I searched the internet looking at before and after photos and I spoke with representatives at a lot of offices that performed buttock augmentation. On the phone and on the internet, I encountered descriptions of lengthy OR times, staged surgery procedures, liposuction pictures that looked like buttock augmentation had been preformed but not listed and non- plastic surgeons predominately advertising the Brazilian buttock lift. I picked Dr. Bootstaylor because of her before and after liposuction photos, her excellent reputation in the community and her broad certification in Plastic Surgery.
