What Can Facial Implants Enhance?

Facial implants can enhance your facial contours and achieve a better balance between your facial features. To “enhance” is to improve the quality or value of something, and facial implants can enhance your face by improving your jawline, adding fullness to your cheeks, increasing the projection of your chin, correcting facial deformities or asymmetry, and restoring facial proportions that have become deficient due to aging. Dr. Scroggins can use facial implants of any size and style to enhance your appearance by improving your chin, cheeks, and/or jaw.

Your Chin

If you are dissatisfied with the appearance of your chin, facial implants may help to improve its projection. A weak chin can detract from your overall appearance and may contribute to a lack of self-confidence. A strong chin can make you look and feel more confident, assertive, and successful. With chin augmentation, your chin is brought into a harmonious balance with the rest of your facial features.

Your Cheeks

Full, defined cheeks add a soft, youthful quality to the face. Cheek implants can add curves that soften the appearance of the whole face. They can also help to restore facial volume that has diminished due to aging. Sometimes, cheek implants are combined with another cosmetic procedure like the facelift to further define and refine the face.

Your Jaw

The jaw provides a clear line that distinguishes the face from the neck. However, for some individuals, this line is not well-defined. Jaw implant surgery adds definition to the rest of the face by enhancing the shape of the jaw. Jaw implants help your jawline appear stronger and more defined, making your face look more balanced and attractive.

Benefits of Facial Implants

Facial implants can enhance the above facial features to improve the overall aesthetics of your face. One major benefit is that they look very natural. Most people will not be able to tell that you have had facial implant surgery, but they will notice that you look better. Additionally, with improvements to your facial shape, you may experience increased self-confidence. If you’re looking for a way to enhance your face, facial implants could be right for you.

Plastic Surgery Misconceptions

With the rise in popularity of plastic surgery over the last few decades and the media attention on celebrity plastic surgeries gone wrong, many people have a misguided idea of this medical specialty. Here is the truth to several common misconceptions about plastic surgery.

Misconception: Plastic Surgery Results Look Fake

The term ‘plastic surgery’ covers a wide range of procedures and treatments, and when they are performed by a trained and experienced plastic surgeon, the results can appear completely natural. Although some celebrity breast augmentations and facial implants may look fake, this is often because the person desired that appearance or they underwent the surgery with a doctor who was not qualified. Making sure that your surgeon is trained and experienced in performing the procedure you desire will ensure that you get the most natural-looking results possible.

Misconception: Plastic Surgery Is All About Vanity

Plastic surgery encompasses the fields of cosmetic surgery as well as reconstructive surgery. Cosmetic plastic surgery is probably what comes to mind when someone mentions plastic surgery, and this field focuses on creating an appearance that is aesthetically pleasing. Rather than undergoing procedures to be vain, most people have cosmetic surgery to significantly improve their confidence and relieve anxiety they have about their appearance.

Collage of words about plastic surgeryReconstructive plastic surgery provides a normal appearance and regular functioning of the body as a result of an injury or birth defect. A deformity can impair a person physically, and it can take a mental toll by causing a person to feel as though he or she is an outsider and not socially accepted. For example, reconstructive surgery for congenital abnormalities prevents children from the torment of being teased for an aspect of their appearance that is out of their control. Reconstructive hand surgery, burn scar revision, breast reconstruction after mastectomy, and cleft lip repair are just a few examples of reconstructive plastic surgery procedures.

Misconception: Plastic Surgery Is Only for Women

This presumption is most likely based on the fact that the majority of plastic surgery patients are women, but in recent years the number of men choosing to undergo plastic surgery has increased dramatically. Liposuction for a slimmer waist, rhinoplasty for improved nose shape, blepharoplasty for eyelid tightening, and gynecomastia surgery to reduce overdeveloped male breasts are the top four cosmetic surgeries that men underwent in 2012, according to The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). Less invasive procedures, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and skin resurfacing for facial rejuvenation, are among the most common plastic surgery treatments undergone by men.
