Facial implants enhance features and bring structural balance to your face. They are made of specially formed materials compatible with human bone and tissue. Face implants are designed for safe, long-term placement to enhance or augment the physical structure of the face. Most common sites for facial implants include: chin, jaw, cheek, lips and brow.
During the procedure, patients are placed under a general anesthesia while implants are placed surgically through incisions in a supporting pocket beneath the skin and soft tissues. Surrounding muscle and tissue hold the facial implant in place. These procedures may be performed alone or as a complement to other facial contouring procedures. Kagan Plastic Surgery can recommend the appropriate techniques to create a structural balance and more attractive appearance to your face with facial implants.
VeraFil™ is the latest, most effective advancement in lip augmentation but is also successfully used on the nasolabial folds. It is a thin-walled, dual layer, saline filled implant with an adjustable fill volume and a self-sealing fill valve. The amount of saline solution in the implant is tailored to the facial implants patient during the implantation procedure. The implant is permanent, does not impede movement and does not cause allergic reactions.
