Balance Your Face & Facial Features with Cosmetic Surgery

Facial Implants can bring Balance to the Face

The face is the first thing people really notice about each other. It’s our primary identifying feature. Unconsciously, we can judge relative health and fitness by virtue of facial features and overall balance. Cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery, using facial implants, can be used to restore stronger, younger more healthy looking features.

People who want to create or restore desirable contouring of their face, often choose implants as the simplest option available.

Several types of implants are available.

Depending on which features of your face being sculpted, there are fixed shape devices called Alloplastic malar and submalar implants. For soft tissue augmentation, we use Injectable implants, which are injected under the skin as a liquid and then massaged into shape. Chins, cheek bones and the forehead are the most likely places to receive implants through cosmetic surgery.

Alloplastics are more likely to be used better define the chin or more boney structures, while injectable implants are most likely to be used to rebuild soft facial tissue lost through trauma or disease. Injection sites are chosen to minimize scaring, and placed in the most inconspicuous spots available.

Simple procedures performed outpatient.

When Janiga MDs perform your surgery, you can expect one or two hours in our Reno outpatient surgery center, under general anesthetic. After another hour or so recovering in our comfortable offices, you’ll be free to go. Allow 7 to 10 days before returning to work or engaging in any strenuous activity, with full results expected after 3 months.
