Overview of

Facial Implants

in Thailand

Implants can be used to alter the shape of your face, creating your ideal appearance. The implants themselves are solid 3D structures and can be made out of varying materials to achieve different levels of contouring.

Implants are used to create or emphasize desired parts of your face, the goal being to alter the proportions of your face. In doing so symmetry and, by extension, balance in the face is created.

Implants can be used to add definition to cheekbones, adjust the shape of your jawline and even fill in a receding chin

The most popular types of implant procedures include facial contouring and the reshaping of cheeks and chins.

Goals of

Facial Implants

The primary goal of facial implants is to alter your appearance and in doing so, create balance in your face. The jaw, cheeks and chin are the most common areas of the face that receive implant treatment. When implants, which are sculpted prosthetics, are used in these areas it creates symmetry and definition.

Implants are mostly used for cosmetic reasons and are capable of correcting uneven features and creating a youthful appearance. 

However, they can also be used for more serious medical procedures to aid in the reconstruction of a patient’s facial features.

Pros and cons of

Facial Implants

Pros

  • implants are used to alter asymmetry and enhance areas that lack definition in the face, such as the jaw, chin and cheeks.
  • implants are pre-made. That means you don’t need to have procedures elsewhere on your body, such as fat grafting from your stomach, to achieve definition and volume in your face.
  • implant operations are quick and are permanent so you don’t have to keep having the procedure redone.

Cons

  • as with all procedures there is a risk of infection. If an infection occurs then the implant must be removed.
  • the implant may be put in incorrectly or shift, causing abnormal contouring.
  • it is possible that the nerves and muscle structure in your face may become damaged during the procedure.

How it works:

Facial Implants

Implant procedures are performed in a hospital or in an outpatient environment. Below are some examples of surgical techniques for different areas of the face.

 

  • Chin implants: An incision is made either under your chin, or in the crease between your bottom lip and gum.
  • Cheek implants: An incision can be made in one of three places: in your mouth, in the crease between your upper gum and cheek; in your hairline; or inside your bottom eyelid.
  • Forehead implants: An incision is made in your hairline
  • Jawline implants: Similar to cheek implants, an incision is made in the crease between the inner cheek and your bottom gum.
  • Nose implants: The two options are to have an incision made inside your nostril, which is slightly invasive. Or, have an incision made in the tissue between your upper lip and nostrils. This area is referred to as the columella.

Typically, a facial implant operation is done via outpatient departments. Factors such as your procedure type, medical history, health, age and preference will all be taken into consideration by your surgeon when discussing your options.

Take the time to learn about the different implant procedures available to you. Make sure to ask your surgeon why they’ve picked a certain type of procedure and technique for you. 

Facial implants surgeries are performed under either general anesthesia or local sedation. The time to perform the procedure depends on the type but typically takes anywhere between half-an-hour to two hours.

Preparation before

Facial Implants

Pre - treatment

Make sure you are prepared for your implant procedure by completing these steps:

  • When completing paperwork prior make sure to give as much detail as required about your medical history, any allergies you may have and any medication you’re taking; this includes any prescriptions and pharmacy bought drugs. You may want to have a list with all of this already written out, to make it easier.
  • Make sure you get all the required pre-procedure tests done. Some examples of tests include: X-rays of the face and/or chest, an EKG, and blood tests. What tests you have done will be determined by factors such as your age, health and which procedure you’re having.
  • You may need to lose some weight prior to surgery if your doctor thinks it’s necessary.  This can be achieved through eating healthily and sticking to an exercise regime. Also, you can’t eat or drink prior to surgery, doing so puts your procedure at risk of being canceled. This is because it is possible to choke on the contents of your stomach when you are under anesthesia. 
  • Smoking can hinder your body's natural healing process. Consider quitting, if only temporarily, to make healing easier for yourself.
  • Make sure to take, or stop taking, your medication if the doctor tells you to. This could be as simple as not taking painkillers for a while, or temporarily stopping the use of your blood thinners. Your doctor will give you clear instructions based on your medication intake.

Recovery after

Facial Implants

Post - treatment

Post-procedure you’ll have an in-depth discussion with your doctor about the surgery and how you should proceed. Post treatment is centered around healing. 

You can expect to discuss things such as the level of activity you’re allowed to do. You will also talk about drains, if you’ve had any put in, and any symptoms you are likely to experience during recovery.

You will be uncomfortable for several days and have to deal with swelling and bruising. These issues can be reduced by using a cold compact to the treated area.

Take into consideration that you may need to be put on a liquid diet for a day or two, depending on where on your face you had the surgery. Your mobility likely won’t be affected, as such, you’ll be able to move about after surgery, even if you’re restricted in what you can do.

Whatever happens it is crucial that you follow the guidelines set out by your surgeon for your aftercare. This can include making sure you care for your drain, if you have one; making sure to wear your compression garments correctly; that you're taking your medication as prescribed and reducing your activity levels.

Your surgeon will advise you on symptoms you are likely to experience post-procedure. They will also tell you what to look out for and what might be signs of surgery complications. Don’t worry about remembering this too much as it’s all written down for you.

Recovery time varies from person to person, and you shouldn’t worry too much if you feel you’re not healing fast enough. On average, a healthy person, with no complications, is back to work a week following surgery.

Anywhere between 2-4 weeks later your appearance should be back to normal. You should be cleared to resume your normal activities about 6 weeks post-surgery.

FAQs:

Facial Implants

Who are the best candidates for Face Implants?
People that are ideal candidates for facial implants include those lacking a prominent jawline or have undefined cheeks or weak chins.



What types of facial implants are there?
There are several types of facial implants, including:

  • Cheek implants: they increase the prominence of your cheekbones.
  • Chin implants: like cheek implants, these increase the size or definition of your chin.
  • Forehead implants: this implant lifts your forehead skin, which makes a person appear younger.
  • Jaw implants: these implants increase the width of your lower face, creating a more defined look.

Nose implants: two things can be achieved by having a nose implant. It can increase your nose tips projection, but it can also be used to widen the bridge of your nose.



How do I know that I am a good candidate for facial implants?
You may want to consider facial implants if:

  • you have a chin that is considered weak or is receding as implants improve your profile and the prominence of your chin.
  • your jawline is weak or undefined and does nothing to highlight or define your face and neck.
  • you want to increase the fullness of your cheeks.
  • you feel in aging you’ve lost proportion in your face, and you want to reintroduce contour to your facial structure.
  • you have some facial deformity you wish to correct.



What will I expect to find my scars from the facial implants?
Incisions are as small and as close to the surgical site as possible, for example:

  • Chin implant: incisions can be found either under the chin or inside the mouth at the joining of your gum and lip.
  • Cheek implant: You’ll find this incision either in your mouth, in your lower eyelid or your brow lift.

Tear trough implants: Expect to find incisions around your eyes, these incisions will either be horizontal or vertical. Or you might find incisions in your mouth.



How long will my implants stay for?
Whilst it’s possible for all facial implants to wear-down, they are designed to be a permanent structure in your face. They can be damaged through facial trauma and it’s possible for them to become infected post-surgery, though infections are uncommon. For most patients, facial implants last a lifetime, as long as they are looked after, as such the benefits of facial implants are also permanent.
