Facial Implants

The shape of a face has a lot to say about the image one creates for the onlooker. The three basic things responsible for the facial shape are skin, soft tissues, and underlying facial bones. The deficiencies in bony structures can be corrected with implants, which are foreign materials (USFDA only) put under the skin and soft tissue envelope to give fullness in the desired area. Defined facial features, visible contours and natural angles that are proportionate all create structural balance in your face and give you a more attractive appearance.

What areas of the face can be improved with implants?

  • Cheekbones.
  • Tear Trough.
  • Nasal base.
  • Nasal dorsum.
  • Chin.
  • The side of a jaw (Mandibular angle).
  • Custom made implants for a specific bone defect in any area of the face.

Who is the right candidate for facial implant surgery?

    Anybody who has one or more of the above-mentioned deformities and has realistic expectations about one’s physical appearance stands to benefit from facial implant surgery. Dr. Mohan Thomas after a detailed analysis and a clinical examination will work out the need, size, and type of implant to be used for you.

Are there any scars from the implant surgery?

    No surgery is without a scar. But most of the scars for the implant surgery are concealed ones and are placed inside the mouth, nose, or eyelids. In some instances, it may be necessary to place a cut over the skin, in such cases the cut is hidden within the hairline or in the shadow area of the jawbone.

What are the precautions one needs to take after implant surgery?

    You will be advised to take care of the operated site after the implant surgery is over. There may be some bandages or dressings over the site, which will be removed within 7-14 days depending on the location. Also, you will be put on antibiotics to prevent infection, since the implant is a foreign material. Majority of the times the implant is fixed either by stitches or screws so that it doesn’t get displaced. In case a metal device is used to fix the implant you need to inform the Radiologist prior to having an MRI done.

Is the implant felt after the surgery?

    Yes, initially you may feel that there is something which has been put in. But over a period of time, your body gets used to it, and it no longer gives a foreign body feeling.

What is the implant made of?

    The implants used in facial surgery are usually made of solid silicone or high-density porous polyethylene. Both have their own advantages and disadvantages, and the choice is made by Dr. Mohan Thomas depending on the requirement.

What are the risks involved in facial implant surgery?

  • Implant infection.
  • Implant exposure.
  • Implant malposition (Slipping from the position).
  • Overlying skin necrosis.
  • Numbness in the operated area (temporary).

FAQ's

Frequently Asked Questions

We like to assist our clients with a knowledgeable and in-depth collective approach to answer for all your queries and fears with our FAQ mega-base.

Facial implants can be made of a variety of materials. The most common material is solid silicone. In addition, two popular options are high-density porous polyethylene, marketed as Medpor, and ePTFE (expanded polytetrafluoroethylene), better known as Gore-Tex. Both Medpor and ePTFE are inert substances, providing better integration with the underlying tissue and bone than solid silicone. However, in the case of Medpor, the implants' integration and ingrowth with the underlying tissue causes difficulty in removing the implant if revisions are needed. The implants that can be removed very easily are the silicone implants while others can be removed with great difficulty. If the implants have been removed within a short time after implantation, there is a high chance that the tissues will regain their previous form, but if injuries have been caused to nerves/ muscles or if there has been ingrowth of tissue then the chances of regaining the old form are less.

Many Indians have a short chin, as a result, their face looks round, appears to have a double chin and an ill-defined jawline. The only way to achieve a more defined facial structure which looks oval is to advance the chin point. This can be undertaken by a bony surgery which has a long recuperation time called Genioplasty. Similar results can be achieved through the placement of a Chin implant done from inside the mouth without scars. Cheek can be augmented using malar implants done from inside the mouth to increase the prominence of the cheekbones.

Face Implant surgery cost varies based on the surgery technique, whether combined with any other facial surgery, the hospital chosen and the extent of surgery. Dr. Mohan Thomas and his team only use US FDA approved materials and Implants along with International standard of care.
