If you are bothered by a small chin, weak jaw or lack of pleasing facial contours, craniofacial surgery with or without facial implants may benefit you.
Your face is made up of three basic components: skin, soft tissues and underlying facial bones. Craniofacial procedures involve re-shaping bone structure. If the bony structure of your face is not in proportion – for example if the chin is recessed, the jaw undefined, or the cheeks are ﬂat – it can significantly affect your appearance. Craniofacial surgery, with or without facial implants, can fashion better defined facial features, improve contours, and create ideal proportions and angles – all to achieve structural facial balance and a more attractive appearance.
Although any place on your face can be augmented with implants, the cheekbones, chin and jaw are the most common sites for facial implants.
Is this a Good Option for You?
Craniofacial surgery with or without facial implants is best performed on people whose facial and skull bones have reached physical maturity, which generally occurs in late adolescence. This procedure may be a good option for you if:
You are physically healthy
You do not smoke
You have a positive outlook and specific goals in mind for improvement of facial contours
