Facial Implants are widely used on people who possess real, or otherwise, a perceived congenital defects to specific areas such as the face, chin, or in some cases- nasal deformity. Although in many cases the reality is, it’s genuinely unnoticeable to other people, it bothers the individual who has to live with it. Therefore it’s important the surgeon has a sympathetic approach. Of course in some instances, it is a “narcissistic’ and unreal state of mind and here we tend to say-NO.
Here we feature a very brave young lady (From NZ. A Kiwi) She rang us on Monday-booked immediately, and was in Prague by Thursday. Following her surgery, she was back in the UK on Monday. Although some 10 years ago now we have not forgotten her.
New Zealand lady’s short testimonial:-
“Brilliant results !”
John thanks for all you did for me in Prague.
Cheek implants enhance or augment a previously underdeveloped part of the face.
With the development of new plastic materials in particular ‘inert plastics’ (materials that do not cause tissue reaction) the procedure is becoming increasingly popular.
Facial implants are widely used on people who believe they were born or perceived as having facial congenital defects. This can specific areas such as the face, chin, or in some cases nasal deformity.
Depending on what the patient hopes to achieve there are a variety of materials which can be used such as; Polythene and silicone and hydroxyapatite – is also known as “artificial bone”.
These materials possess excellent engraftment abilities and minimal rejection rate. Interestingly on the horizon are developments in implants which will be made from the clients own tissue.
How does cheek implants augmentation procedure work?
All we can add here it is “it’s damn clever” how its all done!
We are not able to describe in detail how this procedure works. However, at our clinic, the cheek implants are inserted via the lower eyelid using a Co2 laser.
This contrast with many other clinics, who instead, surgically insert them via the inside of the mouth.
By using the Co2 laser there isn’t even one single stitch involved.
All our surgeon would say is: The laser opens the lower lid sufficiently to create a pocket in which the implant is inserted. Once the implants are in place, a surgical glue is used to seal everything- no sutures. other than that we just do not know the intricacies of the procedure. Or more likely he thought the method sounds a little gruesome to a layperson.
