Facial implants, AKA cheek, chin or jaw implants, augment, rejuvenate or reconstruct the contours of the face and give proper proportion to the face. In general, the steps involved in placing facial implants are the same for all areas of the face. The surgeon makes some markings on the face to determine where the implants will be placed and to know underlying structures that need to be avoided. The doctor makes a small incision in the area where the implant will be placed. A pocket is created where the implant is scheduled to be inserted. Once the implant is placed, the incision is closed through the use of sutures. The implants are made of solid silicone rubber.
