What Are My Options for Chin Augmentation & Other Facial Implant Procedures?

Implants for the face can be created using a variety of both natural (typically patient-derived) or synthetic materials. Dr. Greco typically uses fat graft, SMAS, and/or silicone implants to augment the face or fill in lines, wrinkles, or folds (or for both functions simultaneously, depending on the unique concerns and goals of each patient).

Facial implants can be used to achieve a variety of goals, such as those listed below.

Facial implant procedures are often performed in conjunction with other surgeries to add the finishing touches to a patient's appearance. Such procedures include rhinoplasty, face lift, or liposuction at the neck.

Frequently Asked Questions

What can I expect immediately after the surgery?

For most facial surgeries, at least two weeks of rest is required. For several weeks, you will experience minor swelling around the implant location. This is a very normal reaction after surgery, and is the body's way of promoting healing. You will also feel some tightness and numbness in the same area, which will improve along with the swelling.

How can I accelerate the recovery process?

Mild discomfort may accompany the post-surgical swelling and bruising, but this can easily be treated with oral medication. Our practice also offers additional services such as Vbeam Perfecta to surgical patients to aid in the recovery process.

Dr. Timothy Greco

Is it possible for the implant to move after it is placed?

Immediately following surgery, the skin covering the implant is taped to prevent movement. However, you must not manipulate the implant with your hands and should avoid contact sports of any kind for at least 6 weeks.

What are the risks?

With facial augmentation, it is important to remember that facial asymmetries present before surgery may remain after surgery, although there will be significant improvement. In addition, anytime an implant of any kind (chin, breast, calf, etc.) is placed in the body, the body almost always accepts the implant. On rare occasions, there can be complications. During your consultation, Dr. Greco and his staff will discuss these potential risks as well as ways to minimize them as much as possible.
