Implants can be instrumental in restructuring facial contours that have succumbed to age-related volume loss. They are also an excellent option for those whose genetics have yielded less than satisfactory bone structures. Dr. Leong performs facial implant surgery in Morgantown WV to help improve the appearance of the cheeks, chin, jaw and lips, creating harmony among the features while uplifting your self-image.

What are facial implants?

Facial implants come in all shapes, sizes and textures and can be customized to reflect your exact aesthetic preferences. They can help to add definition to the face, and are often used to mitigate a loss of facial fat volume that occurs with the aging process. Facial implants are also an excellent way to provide symmetry. During your confidential Morgantown, WV consultation, Dr. Leong will carefully examine your bone structure in order to choose the best approach for your needs.

Facial implant surgery is sometimes combined with rhinoplasty, a facelift or brow lift to achieve optimal rejuvenation outcomes. He is always careful to minimize scarring, hiding the incisions inside the mouth, behind the ear or within the hairline.

What are the advantages of facial implants?

  • Helps improve facial definition
  • Corrects sunken or hollow contours
  • Balances and harmonizes the features
  • Works as a tandem solution for rhinoplasty
  • Enhances self-confidence
  • Wide variety of implant sizes and shapes to choose from
  • High degree of patient satisfaction

Who is the ideal candidate for the procedure?

Over time, the face loses its vital fat volume, giving way to sunken or hollow looking contours which age the appearance even further. Facial implants are an excellent solution for creating a more youthful profile, and can be used to augment the chin, the jawline, the midface, the lips or the temples. Candidates for surgery should be of sound mind and body, with realistic expectations for their outcome based on a private consultation with Dr. Leong in Morgantown WV.

What will recovery involve?

After surgery, Dr. Leong will apply bandages or dressings to help keep your new facial shape intact and to minimize swelling. Any discomfort is easily managed with pain medications and a cold compress. For the first two weeks, you will need to sleep with your head elevated. A liquid diet may be required for several days after surgery, depending on the location of the implant. Most patients return to work and normal activities after one week. Dr. Leong will provide you with an in depth aftercare plan and will schedule follow up visits to make sure your recuperation stays on track.
