Ideal candidates for facial implants are men and women who:
- Have attempted fillers and desire a longer-lasting solution
- Want fuller cheeks or a more prominent chin
- Have hollowness or volume loss in their cheeks
- Have naturally flat cheeks
- Are in overall good health
- Have realistic expectations about the outcome of the surgery
Before your surgery, Dr. Thaker will create a detailed treatment plan that matches your aesthetic goals. Facial implants are performed under some form of anesthesia in an outpatient setting. After you have been prepped for your surgery, Dr. Thaker will create small incisions through which he will insert your implant(s). Once the implant is properly placed, Dr. Thaker will close the incisions with carefully placed sutures. Dressings will be used to cover and protect the implant during your recovery. Most facial implant surgeries take less than an hour to perform. You will be released to return home the same day.
What to Expect
As with any facial surgery, patients should expect to experience bruising, swelling, and mild discomfort for 1 – 2 weeks following their surgery. Strenuous activity could affect your results and should be avoided for 7 – 10 days. Most patients feel back to normal within two months with outstanding results that are lasting and natural.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a facial implant cost?
Depending on the location and type of implant you have chosen, the costs of your procedure can vary. After Dr. Thaker has created a treatment plan following your consultation, a member of our team will be able to estimate and explain your out-of-pocket costs. It is important to remember that the artistry and precision used by a skilled surgeon, like Dr. Thaker, are far more valuable than the cost of these procedures.
What if I have an asymmetrical face?
Many people don't realize that facial asymmetry is not that uncommon. If you are bothered by your facial asymmetry, you can schedule a consultation with Dr. Thaker to have him explain your options for cosmetic improvement.
Can I have a fat grafting performed to fill in my cheeks?
For patients who wish to augment their facial features with fat grafting instead, Dr. Thaker is additionally skilled in this process. In order to be a candidate for fat transfer, patients must have enough body fat for harvesting. Fat transfer procedures are both popular and effective methods for augmenting facial features. Ask Dr. Thaker for more information about fat transfer during your consultation.
Implants or fillers?
While dermal fillers are an excellent option for patients who want to avoid the time and expense of surgery, facial implants provide a longer-lasting result. Prior to recommending a surgical procedure, Dr. Thaker may recommend temporary dermal filler in order to help patients get a better idea of the amount of volume and lift they need before committing to implants.
Fuller Facial Features
If you wish to have a fuller chin or cheeks that look natural and last a lifetime, contact Thaker Cosmetic and Wellness in Las Vegas to schedule your consultation. Our premier facility offers many options to help patients achieve the facial contours they desire and deserve. We look forward to working with you.
