Facial Implants Orange County
Facial implants are designed to augment, reconstruct, or rejuvenate your facial contours. The goal of augmentation with chin and cheek implants is to permanently restore contour and proportion to your face.This page will review some of the most common topics related to the two most common Facial Implant procedures.

The proportions of your face determine how balanced your facial features are and are the top measure for facial attractiveness! The distance between your eyes, the size of your lips, and the size and shape of your cheekbones all contribute to your overall appearance. A very important proportion that is commonly overlooked is the projection of your chin!
If you have a chin that recedes, or simply doesn’t protrude very much, your neck can appear fuller and heavy (a “double” chin) and sometimes even your nose will appear larger and more dominant on your face. A receding chin is most noticeable in your profile. For men, it can mean a weaker, less masculine jawline and for women a rounder, less sleek jaw contour.
Chin implants are come in various sizes and are made of firm silicone. During this simple procedure, the implant is placed through a small incision. This augmentation is commonly performed with liposuction to the neck and the area under the chin. Chin Augmentation is also a common procedure performed in conjunction with a Rhinoplasty and a Face Lift on men and women.
Changes in body weight as well as aging contribute to volume loss in the face giving a suken and hollow appearance. The key area this is most noticed is the midface or cheeks. A key factor of facial aging is the shrinking of the malar fat pads, leading to volume loss in this area.
Cheek implants will address the entire mid-face bringing definition and fullness with the most consistent outcome. Volume can also be restored to the cheeks with Fat Grafting and Injectable Fillers, but for patients with low body fat seeking a more permanent solution, implants offer a permanent and more predictable result. Cheek augmentation is commonly performed in conjunction with a Face Lift on men and women. During your consultation Dr. Aiello will review all options available to you to restore your lost facial volume and help you select the procedure to help you meet your facial rejuvenation goals.
