Facial Implants

In having a beautiful face, proportionate facial features are important. Nowadays, facial implants are used in facial rejuvenation and correcting asymmetries. By addressing imbalances in the forehead, nose, cheekbones, and jaw area, the facial structures are harmonized to achieve a natural and balanced appearance. While correcting skeletal deficiencies, asymmetry issues are also addressed, resulting in a characteristic appearance of the face from both frontal and lateral views.

In the past, bone and cartilage structures taken from the patient were used for facial implants, but today, ready-made and shaped implants are used. These implants, produced through meticulous research, are designed to remain in the patient for a lifetime, while also being easily removable according to the patient’s preference.

Cheekbone Implants

Zygomatic or cheekbone implants are much longer compared to other implants. Cheekbone implants, which range between 35 and 50 mm, are used to make the cheekbones much more prominent. In cases where the cheekbone protrusion is insufficient, cheekbone implants are used to increase the projection of this area. A small incision is made inside the mouth, and the zygomatic implants are placed. There is no visible scar after the operation, which is performed under local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia. Facial proportions can be balanced in the same session with rhinoplasty. The patient can return home on the same day of the operation.

Who Can Get Cheekbone Implants?

Evaluation of the cheekbones includes the development of the upper jaw. Cheekbone implants, particularly applied to patients who have lost their upper jaw teeth at an early age or have advanced erosion of the jawbone, are also applied to patients who have lost their upper jaw due to accidents or jaw tumors.

Successful results have been achieved in operations performed on patients with jawbone loss that does not allow for dental implants and those with upper jaw bone loss.

Facial implant procedures, which provide a symmetric appearance and proportion to the face and eliminate many aesthetic problems, should be performed by expert dentists in a clinic environment.

Chin Implants

Chin implants are applied to three different areas of the chin. These are chin tip, lower jawbone (mandible), and upper jawbone (maxilla) implants.

Chin tip implants are applied to individuals with a small or recessed chin. With chin tip implants, the lower jaw is extended to achieve a harmonious structure with the face. Medpor implants, which have a porous structure, allow bone cells to enter their pores over time, leading to bone formation in that area. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia, sedation, or general anesthesia. The operation is carried out either under the chin or in the area between the lips and teeth inside the mouth. There are no visible marks after the operation, and the patient can return home the same day.

Mandibular angle implants are applied in cases of deficiency or disproportion in the jaw angle. When there is bone loss in the lower jaw, which is one of the most prominent areas of the face, or when the jaw angle is aesthetically unclear to a degree that creates a problem, these implants are used. Additionally, if there is disproportion with other areas of the face, mandibular angle implantation can rectify the imbalance. Through a small incision made inside the mouth, an implant is placed to give the jaw a new dimension. This procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia, and during the initial days, it is recommended to consume liquid and soft foods.

It is applied in cases where the upper jaw bone is underdeveloped or insufficient. Upper jaw bone implants help to achieve a more characteristic appearance of the cheek and nose edges.
