Cheek implants may be used to enhance the shape or volume of the upper and mid cheek area. They are placed alone or in combination with other surgeries such as brow lift, blepharoplasty, and facelift.
The implants, made of biologically-inert solid silicone, are available in various shapes and sizes, allowing treatment of the malar area (upper cheek), submalar area (mid cheek), or a combination of these areas. Facial implant options allow Dr. Cynthia M. Gregg to precisely customize the desired enhancements to achieve each patients’ aesthetic goals.
The size and shape of the chin have important roles in the aesthetics of the face. A chin implant may be used to enhance the shape and projection of the chin. Chin implants may be performed in combination with other procedures, such as blepharoplasty, rhinoplasty, facelift, fat transfer, or neck lift. A stronger looking chin is often desired to give more definition to the jawline and upper neck.
The implants are available in different shapes and sizes which gives Dr. Cynthia M. Gregg the ability to address every patient’s individual goal.
The prejowl is the area of depression that is immediately in front of the jowls. With time, the jowls descend and the some of the bone in the prejowl area is resorbed. This creates a concave appearance in the prejowl area. Prejowl implants are similar to chin implants, in that they are placed along the lower front edge of the jaw. The volume of the implant lifts the prejowl area and restores a smoother, more youthful contour to the jawline. These implants restore the definition to the jawline.
Dr. Cynthia M. Gregg often uses a prejowl implant in combination with a facelift in order to achieve for a youthful, natural looking result. She performs the implant surgeries in our fully accredited surgical facility using the most advanced techniques to minimize scarring.
