Your face, more than any other part of the body, is what defines you. At its most fundamental level, your face is a composite of the structural elements—chin, brow, cheeks, and jaw. It is the relationship between these structural elements that make up your unique look. When one of these elements is too big, too small, or too prominent, it tends to throw the face out of balance. Facial contouring can change the basic structure and improve the balance of the face.
Implants can be used to make the jaw wider, cheekbones higher, or add projection to a small chin. There are many areas of the face that implants can improve. Often, these procedures can be done in the office under a local anesthesia. Recovery time can also vary, ranging from a few days to a few weeks, depending on the procedure performed. After surgery, the face is seen with a more balanced look.
