Some people might not be aware just how many different kinds of implants are available to today’s modern cosmetic surgeon. We’ve all heard of breast implants, as they get by far the biggest share of the press (both positive and negative), but what about other kinds of implants?
For example, Dr. Naderi conducts a procedure known as chin implant surgery, which can improve the appearance of a weak chin. This might seem to be a supremely luxurious form of cosmetic surgery, but it is proving extremely popular. In fact, chin implant procedures grew by more than “breast augmentation, Botox and liposuction combined” last year, according to statistics released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
Proportionally smaller in popularity, but still growing, cheek implants are also proving popular with both men and women. Many believe this is due in part to an increased use in technologies such as one-on-one video conferencing. In fact, the 2012 report by the ASPS identifies the twin trends of increased video technology and increased workplace competition as being responsible for the upward trend in facelifts, implants, and related surgical procedures. People just want to look their best, for their career, as well as socially, and implants are part of achieving that for many.
Implants are often used alongside other procedures, such as eyelid surgery and nose reshaping, to improve the overall balance of the facial features and create better facial harmony. These are invasive procedures, which may not be for everyone, but they carry a higher rate of success, both for the short and long-term results, over non- and minimally-invasive options like fillers.
A skilled surgeon can analyze the structure and balance of your face to suggest procedures such as cheek and chin implants.
