According to most patients, facial implants are used to reconstruct and replenish areas of the face that were underdeveloped from birth or lost due to trauma. However, in the hands of a top plastic surgeon, facial prostheses are also a means of rejuvenation. The placement of endoprostheses is used to improve the contours of the face. Implants allow you to create a more harmonious look to the face by balancing the cheekbones or chin with the rest of the face, or to strengthen the jawline.
Facial contouring can significantly improve your appearance and add confidence. As a rule, the need for such operations arises in young patients, since they are often unhappy, for example, with a depressed chin shape. And placing the implant in the chin area will significantly restore its shape. Older people may need a facelift in conjunction with the placement of implants in the cheekbones to create a more youthful appearance. Endoprostheses literally "fill" a face that appears tired or "sunken".
The duration of the operation to place the endoprosthesis in the cheekbones is usually about 30 - 45 minutes. If, together with implantation, another plastic operation is performed, for example: plastic surgery of the eyelids or a forehead lift, a skin lift of the face, the endoprosthesis is placed through incisions from other operations. In the individual case, incisions are made on the upper lip from the side of the mouth or mucosa. The endoprosthesis is placed in a formed pocket under the skin. The first time after surgery, it will be difficult to smile and chew. The stitches dissolve in about 10 days.
The duration of the operation to place the endoprosthesis in the lower jaw area is 1 - 2 hours. In order to have access to create a pocket in which the implant will be placed, hidden incisions are made on both sides of the lower lip. Only absorbable sutures are used, which is very convenient. In 24 - 48 hours after the operation, edema forms throughout the lower jaw. Most of the swelling goes away within a few days, but slight swelling will remain for another 1 to 2 months. During the recovery period, it is necessary to especially carefully observe oral hygiene. The ability to fully chew and smile will be partially limited for the first few days.
Endoprostheses are made of solid silicone, which is not harmful to the body, according to studies. However, when placing implants, as with any operation, there is a possibility of infection in the tissues. In case of the appearance of inflammatory processes around the prosthesis and the impossibility of stopping it using antibiotics, the implant is temporarily removed.
The recovery period is quite fast. However, basic precautions should be followed. The final shaping of the face contour takes several weeks or even months. The result will be amazing, and many people will not even guess about the presence of an implant.
