People often seek to improve and enhance their facial contour. An option for improvement is facial implants. Often these implants can help provide a more aesthetically pleasing balance to your face and features in order to boost self-esteem. There are various implants produced from many different materials, each implant has a different purpose. They can help strengthen a jawline or bring the chin or cheekbones into balance with the remainder of the face area. This creates a more attractive facial configuration. Dr. Kassir inserts implants to bring better balance to the features of an individual or create a more defined look.

Depending on what the patient is requesting to be done, the procedure can be quick and short or rather long. Throughout the process, Dr. Kassir selects the appropriate size and shape implant to improve your appearance in the area requested. The incision is made based on where the implant is being placed. There's not any bandage when the incision is inside the mouth area. For example, with a chin implant, if the incision is made intraoral, there is no visible scar. However, if it is made on the exterior like beneath the chin, a very small bandage is used. Any extraoral incision is well hidden and usually not visible from a normal conversational position. Most sutures used for implants are dissolvable and will dissolve within five to seven there.

Patients are usually able to go home the same day as their surgery. It is important that the patient continues to take care of the incision and apply ointment or use mouthwash. Dr. Kassir always schedules a follow-up appointment to check the incision and assure that it’s healing properly. To create a more defined and balanced facial configuration, book your consultation for a facial implant with Dr. Kassir!
