ABOUT Facial Implants

Add Natural-looking Volume with Facial Implants

If you are dissatisfied with your facial contours or are looking for a more permanent solution to volume loss, facial implants may be the right option for you. Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg provides advanced silicone facial implantsto help patients at his Long Island, NY, achieve the fuller, more balanced facial planes they desire. He can help you understand the best options to achieve your goals and guide you through the entire process.

Types of Facial Implants

Dr. Greenberg is proud to offer his patients multiple types of facial implants to meet their varied needs.
Cheek Implants
Specialized cheek implants can be used as part of a cheek augmentation to produce a much more dramatic aesthetic. These advanced silicone implants can enhance your facial features, reducing the need for more extensive contouring treatments. The implants can fill out your cheeks, diminishing the appearance of sagging skin and bags under your eyes. You can also receive implants in addition to dermal fillers and fat transfers.
Chin Implants
Enhancing the appearance of your chin can transform your entire appearance. A receding or less-pronounced chin can make your other facial features seem overly large and out of proportion with the rest of your face. Dr. Greenbergcan place chin implants that are matched to the size of your chin and your goals to augment your jawline and face. Chin surgery is a simple facial procedurethat can create a significant impact.
Jaw Implants
Jaw augmentation with implants can increase the size and width of your jaw. While a chin implant can help define your jaw, you can achieve a much stronger jaw line with this enhancement. Jaw implants can make your chin appear less pointy and can also reduce the appearance of jowls and a double chin.
Lip Implants
Dermal fillers are able to augment both the volume and shape of the lips. However, many patients may want more permanent results that do not require repeated injections. Lip implants are small silicone pieces that Dr. Greenberg can expertly place in one or both lips to help you achieve the fuller look you desire.

Advanced Options for Every Patient

All of the facial implant options we offer are used to rejuvenate and enhance your facial appearance and natural beauty. Dr. Greenberg can rebuild features that have lost volume to age or other factors, as well as augment features that you are self-conscious about. He uses advanced silicone implants because they feel natural and provide realistic results. These implants are also safe and durable for lasting benefits. Dr. Greenberg can also provide a range of sizes and can customize the implants to match your features and achieve your specific goals.

Placement Procedure

Silicone implants can be placed during a quick, safe facial surgery procedure. You can receive only local anesthesia and sedation, or choose general anesthesia. Dr. Greenberg will select the most inconspicuous locations for your incisions. Chin implants will usually be placed through an incision that is made between your lower lip and your gums or underneath your chin. Jaw implants are placed from the inside of the mouth. Cheek implants can be placed through incisions that are made either from inside the mouth or the lower eyelid. Lip implants are typically placed at the corner of the mouth through very small incisions that usually heal to be virtually invisible.

Jaw Implants Can Improve Contours and Definition

A defined jaw can not only improve your profile, but enhance your overall appearance. By placing jaw implants, we can alter the shape of the chin, strengthen the angles of the face, and reduce the appearance of jowls or a double chin. Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg can perform this procedure with exceptional precision and artistic design for both male and female patients at our Long Island, NY, practice. During your consultation at Greenberg Cosmetic Surgery, we can review your cosmetic goals, before designing a treatment plan tailored to you.

What Are Jaw Implants?
While chin implants focus primarily on the tip of the face, jaw implants (also known as mandible implants) are designed to create a more balanced facial silhouette and defined jaw contours. Jaw implants enhance the angle and ramus of the mandible (lower jawbone). Chin and jaw implants are often used together for patients with weak and small chins to provide an even stronger jawline. Jaw implants come in a variety of shapes and sizes to meet your unique needs. This procedure provides excellent results and is less invasive than jaw surgery.

While this procedure is more commonly performed on men, it is becoming increasingly popular among our female patients.

Benefits of Jaw Implants
Jaw implants can improve your self-confidence by:

  • Producing a more defined or less pointy chin
  • Improving symmetry and create more balanced facial features
  • Strengthening jaw angles
  • Minimizing jowls and a double chin
  • Creating smoother, well-defined jaw contours
  • Enhancing your profile, especially if you have a receding chin

Our team can examine your facial structure before recommending the shape and size of the implant most appropriate. Our goal is to select an implant that complements your unique features.

Jaw Implants for Male Patients vs. Female Patients
Although we can perform this procedure on both male and female patients, often times their aesthetic goals are different. Jaw implants provide men with weak chins and a narrow jaw the opportunity to strengthen the lower angles of their face, for a more masculine look. Implants are generally placed over the chin and outer jaws, just below the ears, to create a stronger, squarer, more chiseled jawline.

Women, on the other hand, often select this procedure to eliminate jowls and a double chin. It can provide a softer, understated jawline for female patients who have a receding chin, or a more prominent jawline with aesthetically pleasing contours. While this procedure is more commonly performed on men, it is becoming increasingly popular among our female patients.

What to Expect during Treatment
After determining your candidacy for treatment, Dr. Greenberg can review your treatment plan. This can include any other facial procedures being performed in conjunction with your jaw implants, such as rhinoplasty or chin surgery. He can also explain what to expect during the procedure and post-surgical steps to follow to ensure a smooth recovery.

On the day of the procedure, we can administer anesthesia to ensure your comfort. Once you are ready, we can make small incisions inside your mouth where your lower lips and gums intersect. We can then carefully insert the implants, before gently molding them along your jawline to create the desired effect. Next, we can secure the implants in place with titanium screws. Because incisions are placed inside your mouth, Dr. Greenberg will use a watertight seal to prevent saliva and food from contaminating the surgical site. The procedure can generally be completed in about one to two hours, and most patients can expect to return to normal activities a week after surgery.

By using facial implants, you can undergo less invasive treatment than with fat grafting procedures and limit your recovery time.

Enjoying a Range of Benefits
With Dr. Greenberg’s experience and artistic eye, he can place customized facial implants in highly precise locations to augment your features with significant results. This treatment offers a range of advantages over other non-invasive and surgical techniques.

Restore a Youthful Appearance
Age, lifestyle, and sun exposure can take a toll on your facial features, resulting in fine lines, wrinkles, loss of volume, and saggy cheeks and jowls. Over time, collagen production will decrease and fat will begin to shift. With facial implants, you can add definition and volume in all the right places to lift and fill your facial features, while also smoothing the texture of your skin.

In addition to improving the shape of your face, facial implants can provide you with a younger-looking appearance, in turn, improving your self-confidence. A more confident demeanor can improve your relationships, emotional well-being, and overall quality of life.

Symmetrical Facial Features
A large nose, protruding chin, or weak jawline can create an imbalanced profile, asymmetrical facial features, as well as make you feel self-conscious about your appearance. Oftentimes, what you consider to be a large nose, can be balanced by adding volume to your cheeks, chin, or jaw with implants. In addition, implants can also help augment features that have diminished as a result of age and major weight loss, or that you simply wish to enhance.

Implants can help provide balanced facial features without significantly altering your appearance or undergoing extensive facial surgery. Patients who have experienced facial deformity as a result of trauma or birth defect also enjoy the benefits that facial implants can provide. To enhance your features even more, Dr. Greenberg can provide facial implants as part of any other facial cosmetic surgery, such as a rhinoplasty, chin surgery, or neck lift.

Facial implants provide patients with a quick, cost-effective, yet lasting approach for improving your facial features.

Permanent, Less Invasive Results
Injectables and dermal fillers are commonly used to add volume to the cheeks, chin, or lips in order to enhance facial features. While these treatments a non-invasive and require no downtime, regular retreatments are necessary to maintain your results. Some patients also receive fat transfers for longer-lasting results. However, fat grafting can still provide only temporary augmentation and requires that patients take time off of work for recovery.

By investing in facial implants, you can conveniently enhance your features with one procedure while also eliminating retreatment costs and more extensive procedures. Facial implants provide patients with a quick, cost-effective, yet lasting approach for improving your facial features.
