Yes, facial fillers are an excellent addition to the cosmetic industry, and it is easy to understand why. They offer a temporary solution to volume loss and reduce wrinkles in people. Aging can be cruel to some of us and it’s important that there are safe and natural modifications we can make to restore our confidence and enhance our best facial features.
But for those of us that may never have had definition in the cheeks, jawline and chin, facial implants can offer something that dermal fillers can’t and that’s the illusion of strengthened, permanently restored bone structure and contour. Facial fillers can add volume and produce a slight lift to the face, but they’re not permanent and won’t give the lifelong results you want with the support these structures need to thrive. As Dr. Schneider will tell you, where fillers can’t, implants can.
Facial Implants are Recommended Over Fillers
At Riverview Facial Plastic Surgery, all patients hoping to rejuvenate the face have a variety of options to achieve the look they want. But before we make those recommendations, we provide a comprehensive analysis of the skin, supportive muscle tissues, and measure the strength of the bone structures beneath it all. Patients with declining bone density or weakened features are not great candidates for dermal fillers if they’re trying to define high cheekbones, build weak chin and develop the jawline.
Our patients understand that dermal fillers can help offer a little something extra to lost soft tissue volume, but they may not precisely mold to the angles you want but are milder changes. Facial implants are the best recommendation for these enhancements since the implants are custom built for every patient and to their specific needs.
How Implants Can Help You Achieve Fullness
Anything you’ve wanted to change over the last few years in your bone structure, because of birth defects or injury, these implants are the additional missing piece that are crafted just for you. Dr. Schneider can restore any weak or thinned areas of the face including the lips that for many are thinned and undefined, softened chin or receding chin, undefined or lower set cheekbones and disproportionate jawline. These implants will help you achieve the fullness you need without looking overdone and will replenish facial symmetry to even out or portion these facial structures
Once Dr. Schneider creates a detailed plan for improving facial volume and contouring, these implants are molded, and the implantation process will begin. Our facial fillers are made from biocompatible materials, so they’re completely safe, and integrate smoothly. There are no visible scars involved in this procedure because every incision is done through the mouth, discretely.
After your consultation in the Minneapolis area, at Riverview Facial Plastic Surgery with Dr. Schneider, he will help you decide whether or not facial implants are the right choice for you. Recovery time for these implants is about two weeks and you’ll see these results as soon as the procedure is completed. What better way to end a procedure than with immediate results that are long lasting and made just for you.
