Facial Implants in Houston, TX

Dr. Joseph Perlman offers facial implants to patients throughout Spring, Houston, The Woodlands, Atascocita, Conroe, Pasadena, Baytown, and the surrounding areas.

What Are Facial Implants?

Facial implants augment, reconstruct or rejuvenate your features. Made of specially formed solid, biocompatible materials, implants are available in a wide range of sizes and styles for the chin, jaw, nose, and cheek. Many facial implant patients are bothered by a small chin, weak jaw, or lack of facial contour. With facial implants, they can add or restore contour and/or proportion to the face.

Dr. Joseph M. Perlman has spent more than 25 years working with patients in the Houston area, including Spring and The Woodlands. With his expertise and the assistance of his professional staff at Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre, facial implants are improving the lives of hundreds of men and women each year.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Facial Implant?

To be an ideal candidate for a facial implant, your head and skull should have reached physical maturity. This usually happens in late adolescence. Other suitable individuals for a facial implant include those who

  • Are physically healthy
  • Do not smoke
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Have specific goals for the procedure

When you meet with Dr. Perlman for your facial implants consultation, he will evaluate your objectives and take a close look at the features you want to correct. He and his experienced team at Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre will then guide you toward the precise type and size of implants that are best suited for you.

What Is the Process for a Facial Implant?

There are several different facial implant procedures available. These include the following:

  • Cheek implants
  • Chin implants
  • Jaw implants
  • Nose implants

Facial implant surgery follows a similar pattern for all facial areas. The surgeon makes a small incision near where the implant will be placed, either in a crease or inside the mouth at the gum/lip junction. Then a pocket is made in the facial tissue, the implant is inserted, and the incision is stitched.

Facial implant surgery generally takes one to two hours, usually with general anesthesia. The incision is bandaged or taped, and stitches are removed in five to 10 days (sutures placed inside the mouth will dissolve in a similar period of time). Sometimes facial implants are inserted at the same time as a facelift, nose, or eyelid procedure.

What Does Recovery Entail After a Facial Implant?

Men and women who opt for facial implants will notice results almost immediately. However, the full effects will be obscured by swelling that may take several months to completely abate. The results of the surgery are essentially permanent. Most facial implant patients return to work within one week.

At Advanced Plastic Surgery Centre, your comfort, safety, and satisfaction are of utmost importance. Dr. Perlman and his staff will make sure that you are thoroughly cared for before, during, and after your facial implant procedure. Our comprehensive care and welcoming attitude have made us a top destination for patients in Spring, The Woodlands, and other locations in and around Houston.

Can I See Facial Implants Before and After Photos?

When you meet with Dr. Perlman, he will have some facial implants before and after pictures to show you. These images will include patients from the Houston area and beyond. By viewing facial implant before and after photos, you can visualize what the procedure can really do for you.
