Cosmetic surgery is a branch of medical science that enhances facial features or external appearance to give a different, revived, restructured contour. A facial implant is a form of cosmetic surgery that redesigns facial features into more balanced, elegant and attractive features. The surgery is an artistry to reconstruct and change facial features to a more aesthetic, radiant and youthful glow on the skin.
Facial implants are small devices made of silicon that a plastic surgeon grafts underneath the skin. Cheek implants, chin implants and jawline implants are a few artificial fillers that give a permanent redefined facial presentation.
General anaesthesia, intravenous sedation and medication are given before the surgery. A cosmetic surgeon mark traces the area where implants are to be embedded on the cheekbone. Cheek implants are inserted through incisions in the mouth. Chin implants are inserted through incisions below the chin, mouth, lower lip and gums. Jaw implants are grafted inside the mouth along the jawline to inside of cheek and gums. Once the implant is incorporated, the incisions are sutured back to give skin a normal look and later stitches are removed post surgery.
Facial implant surgery is recommended by doctors to restructure, regain, restore features after any trauma or cancer that distorts physical countenance or attributes of face. Facial implant surgery is an expensive cosmetic treatment, done only by skilled health care professionals. Risks and complications post surgery are explained to the patient by the treating surgeon and essential guidelines are given for post operative management and care. Topical ointments prescribed by the doctor should be applied to the skin in case of any bleeding or allergic condition on the skin post surgery. Oral medication is given to relieve patients from pain and infection. Facial implants do not have any medical alternative. It is an ideal method to restore, rebuild and reshape flawless, pleasant look of face.
