Things to think about regarding Facial Implants

Facial implants can markedly change the way you look in a good and bad way. It all depends on what you need and what your current aesthetics are. You need to have a surgeon that has an understanding of facial aesthetics.

Depending on what you look like, you can place chin, cheek, jaw and periorbital implants that can really improve your appearance. Silicone implants are the most compatible but have less integration than some other more porous implants like medpor and goretex. I prefer Silicone because of its compatibility but there are many other implants that are very compatible and have proven records in terms of acceptance by your body. Methylmetacrylate has a long history of implantation with very low percentage of problems. Medpor, porous polyethylene, has a low risk but in terms of rejection appears higher than silicone.

To me silicone, is the best implant available due to its low risk of rejection by the body and that’s what I use in the nose, jaw, chin and for implants around the eye, temple, and forehead. Facial implants are great way to augment your facial shape for the better.
