Lip implants permanently augment the lips avoiding repeated injectable treatments. These are placed through small incisions on the inside corner of the mouth under local anesthesia with oral sedation. Dr. Severinac uses two types of implants.
The Perma Facial Implant is a silicone implant which is soft and does not limit movement or puckering of the lips.
PTFE type implants which are more rigid and somewhat prevent puckering of the lips. This implant is ideal in patients who have lines on the lip and are having these treated with dermabrasion. The implant can be placed at the same time as the dermabrasion. The idea is to help prevent return of these lines by reducing the puckering that causes them.
Fuller and more natural appearing lips, permanent with no more injections.
A poorly defined chin or cheeks can give the face an overall weak appearance. Chin implants in Fort Wayne, IN can give you the confidence you’ve been looking for. Dr. Severinac uses implants that allow tissue ingrowth which secures the implant making it look and feel like its a part of yourself. The incision is typically made in the submental crease, a natural crease line found just under the chin.
While chin implants give the appearance of a stronger jaw, cheek implants lend definition and improve the overall contour of the face. These are placed through incisions inside the mouth and are performed in the outpatient general anesthesia setting. In many cases, facial fat grafting is a better alternative to cheek implants.
Most facial implants are placed through inconspicuous incisions under local anesthesia with oral sedation. To learn more about facial implants, contact us today.
