When it comes to facial implants, it is often formed with solid materials such as, silicone or porous polyethylene, which is compatible with human tissues. These are particularly designed to enhance or augment the physical appearance of the face. If you’re facing trouble with a small chin. Weak jaw, or lack of facial contour, then facial implants are your answer. While any area of your face can be augmented with the surgery, the cheek or molar area, i.e, chin and jaw are the most common sites of facial implants.
Chin implants are done to modify the shape, size, and projection of the chin. The jaw implants increase the width of the lower part of the face and the cheek implant increases the projection of the cheekbones. They add volumes to the area that are flat or are in asymmetry.
