Facial Implants by Boston Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Bartlett
A weak chin or flat cheek bones can rob your face of the full, healthy appearance that is important for an attractive look. Carefully performed cosmetic surgery for cheek or chin augmentation can add volume and create a more balanced appearance. Often, facial implants also are considered when discussing other procedures such as facelift or rhinoplasty. Facial implants can help to redefine neck lines and also to camouflage a large nose.
Extensive experience in facial aesthetics and complex facial reconstruction allows Richard A. Bartlett, M.D. to understand facial proportion and the benefits of discreet augmentation with implants. During your confidential consultation in Dr. Bartlett’s Boston area office, he will review all options with you so that you can achieve optimal results.
Facial Implant Surgery – What to Expect
- About the Surgery – most facial implants are inserted through incisions inside the mouth to avoid external scars. Occasionally, when other procedures are performed which require external incisions, the implant can be inserted without making an additional incision.
- Post Surgery – swelling and bruising resolve within 1 to 2 weeks. There is essentially no downtime following these limited cosmetic surgery procedures.
