Facial Implants in Beverly Hills, CA

The augmentation of the facial skeleton is an integral part of facial rejuvenation and is often overlooked by both the surgeon and the patient. When the facial anatomy is weak, the structural framework of the face needs to be corrected. Weakness in the cheeks, chin, or jaw can cause facial features to look out of balance. Facial implants can balance these areas, bringing balance and harmony for facial rejuvenation.

The advanced facial implants Dr. Calabria offers at his facilities in Beverly Hills, Palm Springs, and Italy are designed to contour the natural anatomic facial structures with various shapes that can emphasize regions like the cheeks, chin, and jawline.

Facial implants are not only recommended for younger patients. Good bone structure also helps the aging face maintain volume, and strong cheekbones and jawlines enhance the appearance of the mature face.

Dr. Calabria’s approach consists first of utilizing state-of-the-art digital computer imaging, which precisely guides his recommendations in the choice of implant options. This advanced technology also gives his patients a clear idea of the final results they can achieve.

Am I a Candidate for Facial Implants?

Suitable candidates for facial implant surgery are individuals seeking permanent improvements in facial contours to address the following:

  • Insufficient volume in the cheeks
  • Weakly defined chin
  • Concerns about the shape of their jawline

Ideal candidates are in good overall health, don’t smoke, have specific concerns about facial balance or augmentation, and have realistic expectations for their surgical results.

Types of Facial Implants

Cheeks Implants

More projecting cheekbones are attractive, and this can be easily obtained with cheek implants. Fat grafting can also be used, but this tends to produce a less permanent solution.

The cheek implants are inserted through a small incision in the mouth and can be placed in a malar (more traditional) or submalar location, depending on the desired results.

Chin Implants

A chin implant is used to enhance the projection of a weak chin. This often balances the patient’s profile, especially if they have a strong nose. A chin implant may also improve the neck contour by creating a sharper angle and a youthful look.

Chin implants come in different shapes to meet the patient’s unique needs. The implant is placed through an incision under the chin or inside the mouth, typically under local anesthesia. Recovery is only a few days.

Jaw Implants

A strong jawline is an attractive facial feature. Jaw implants, also known as mandibular angle implants, are designed to enhance the definition and contour of the lower jaw. This procedure is often chosen by individuals seeking a stronger jawline or correction of a less-defined jaw angle.

These implants are placed through an incision inside the mouth. The recovery is only a few days.

Lip Augmentation

Instead of implants, Dr. Calabria uses several techniques to enhance thin or aging lips, depending on the patient’s concerns.

  • Lip Lift
    A lip lift is performed to shorten the distance between the top of the upper lip and the bottom of the nose. Under local anesthesia, Dr. Calabria makes a small incision at the base of the nostril and raises the upper lift to a more youthful position. This effective procedure is often combined with a dermal filler to enhance volume in the lips.
  • Lip Augmentation With Dermal Graft or Alloderm
    Similar to implants, this procedure is usually performed using a dermal graft or Alloderm. When using a graft, tissue is harvested from elsewhere in the patient’s body and placed in the lips through techniques similar to those used for other implants. This approach produces longer-lasting results than fillers and, in some cases, is a permanent solution.

How Does Dr. Calabria Perform Facial Implant Surgery in Beverly Hills?

Dr. Calabria uses the latest endoscopic and minimally invasive techniques to minimize scars and optimize outcomes. Depending on the extent of the surgery, he performs facial implant surgery under local or general anesthesia on an outpatient basis.

Using the endoscopic approach, Dr. Calabria carefully makes small incisions in discreet locations, such as inside the mouth. He strategically places the implant(s) and remodels the surrounding tissues to provide natural-looking results. Once satisfied with the facial contours, he closes the incisions with sutures.

Can I Combine My Facial Implant Surgery With Another Plastic Surgery Procedure?

Facial implants can be included as part of complete facial rejuvenation through a number of procedures, including:

Facial implants can also be combined with cosmetic nose surgery to address long-standing concerns or injury-related issues.

How Long Is Recovery After Facial Implant Surgery?

The recovery period after facial implant surgery can vary based on the specific procedure performed and individual healing rates. Generally, patients may experience swelling, bruising, and discomfort for the first few days.

Patients may return to daily activities within a few days or up to two weeks. Complete resolution of swelling may take longer. Expect an extended downtime when combining facial implants with other facial surgeries.

What Results Can Facial Implants Achieve?

Implants can dramatically improve facial contours by enhancing specific features. Balanced facial anatomy contributes significantly to overall facial rejuvenation and is as essential as soft tissue changes in the delicate equation of youthful and attractive aesthetics. Facial implants can add volume for a more youthful appearance, create a balanced profile, provide facial harmony, and create a more sculpted appearance.

By addressing specific facial concerns, such as lack of volume or definition, facial implants empower individuals to feel more confident and positive about their appearance. The transformative effects often extend beyond the physical, fostering a heightened sense of confidence, self-esteem, and well-being.

  • Are facial implants permanent?

    Facial implants are considered permanent, as they are designed to provide long-term enhancements to facial contours. However, individual factors such as aging, changes in weight, and natural facial changes over time can influence the appearance of facial implants. These changes typically include volume loss or skin thinning and can often be addressed with revision surgery or dermal fillers. Regular follow-up appointments with the surgeon are vital for monitoring long-term results.

  • What types of facial implants are available?

    There are various types of facial implants, including cheek implants, chin implants, jaw angle implants, and more. These implants come in different shapes and sizes to address specific facial areas and individual aesthetic goals.

  • Are there risks associated with facial implant surgery?

    Like any surgical procedure, facial implant surgery carries some risks. These can include infection, bleeding, implant displacement, or asymmetry. Choosing a board-certified and experienced surgeon can help minimize these risks.

  • How long do facial implants last?

    Facial implants are designed to be long-lasting, and many patients enjoy their benefits for many years. However, individual factors such as aging, changes in weight, or shifts in facial tissues over time can influence the longevity of the results.

  • Can facial implants be removed or revised?

    While facial implants are considered permanent, they can be removed or revised if necessary. Some individuals may choose to adjust the size or shape of their implants, or in rare cases, removal may be required due to complications or changes in preference. Consultation with a qualified surgeon, like Dr. Calabria, is crucial for personalized guidance.
