Dr. Kahn uses facial implants to improve and enhance facial contours. These implants will help provide a more harmonious balance to your face and features so that you feel better about the way you look.
Facial implants can enhance your appearance and bolster your self-esteem. If you are looking for improvement, not perfection, in your appearance and are realistic in your expectations, you may find that a facial implant is the right choice for you.
Facial augmentation is performed on every age group. Dr. Kahn frequently uses facial implants to bring better balance to the features of younger patients. For instance, a teenage girl may want her nose reshaped as well as her chin brought forward so that these features are better proportioned and in balance. A more mature patient may choose to have an implant in conjunction with a facelift. A stronger chin or higher cheekbones will give the mature patient the more youthful appearance they’re seeking. Implants may also be selected to fill out a face that appears “sunken” or “tired.”
It is an outpatient procedure that is performed here in our state-of-the-art surgical facility, eliminating the costs and need for hospitalization.
Dr. Kahn uses IV sedation and a local anesthetic and the procedure usually takes about 15-20 minutes. You will experience minimal discomfort and swelling and may return to normal activities after about a week. The result will be natural looking and make a huge difference in the balance of your face!
