Being dissatisfied with your appearance can lead to self-esteem issues and decrease your overall quality of life. There are many techniques in the aesthetic market to improve your appearance, but facial implants with Dr. Syed Ahmad can enhance your facial features without compromising your natural beauty.
What are Facial Implants?
Facial implants are made of solid but flexible material and are specifically designed to be compatible with the tissues in your face. These implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and they can be placed in several different positions on the face depending on your unique facial structure and goals. Facial implants can be inserted in the chin, cheek or jaw and have been proven to be an effective way to fix flat cheekbones, a weak jaw and a small chin. Getting one or more facial implants can be a great way to get more contoured definition to your face for both men and women.
What Can I Expect?
You will be made comfortable with the appropriate amount of sedation or anesthesia prior to the procedure. The exact steps used after you are sedated will be determined by the location of the facial implants. While some incisions will need to be made to optimally position the implants within the face, Dr. Ahmad will place all incisions as discretely as possible to minimize scarring and downtime. Each surgical plan is customized to the individual.
What is the Recovery Like?
Absorbable sutures or stitches will be used to close all of your incisions. These options will be discussed with you during your consultation. Slight bruising, numbness and discomfort will be present during the first few weeks of the recovery process. You should avoid strenuous activity while you are healing. During your consultation, we will discuss how much time you should take off from work and when you can resume your normal daily routine.
What are the Results of Facial Implants?
While the results of your facial implants will be visible after the initial healing process is complete, it will take a few months for this swelling to completely disappear. Carefully following aftercare instructions is the best way to reduce your recovery time. Once the swelling is gone, you will be able to fully enjoy your improved appearance.
