The skin over your face is analogous to a drape. The shape of your face is determined by the underlying skeletal framework. In some individuals, this framework is not as pronounced as in other individuals and they may appear to have a flattened face or a small, recessed chin.
A Cosmetic Surgeon may be able to add facial implants to your facial skeleton to accentuate the areas of your cheek bone, chin, nose, and angle of the lower jaw. These skeletal augmentations re-drape and tighten the skin of your face. This provides a more healthy and youthful appearance without the need for a more extensive face lift procedure. The surgery is performed from within the mouth with no visible scars.
Immediate results are evident. Swelling may last for several weeks.
