Different Types of Facial Implants For Men

Facial implants were designed to permanently reshape and enhance specific features of the face. Just like implants of the body, there is the number of facial implant options to choose from. These implants can be fully customized to meet the specific needs of each individual patient. The implant itself is a solid, synthetic material that is compatible with human tissue, adding body and contour to facial structure. Here are four different types of facial implants for men to choose from.

facial implants for men1. Chin Implant

A chin implant will increase the size and prominence to become proportional to the mid-face and forehead. The implant will be positioned internally right under the bottom lip or under the chin.

Typically, patients who undergo a chin implant have a small chin that disappears into the neck. Not only does this implant improve one’s facial profile, but it also strengthens the chin. If the chin does not fully develop, weakening problems will arise as well as a receding chin. Having a weak chin creates an imbalance of the face, making the nose look larger, midface top-heavy, the lower face looks short, and it de-emphasizes the lips. Results are often dependent on the patient’s desired look.

2. Jaw Implant

A jaw implant is similar to the chin implant as it will create a fuller, more prominent looking jaw. This implant enhances the bone structure and is placed on the jawline, an area known for being associated with an attractive masculine appearance. This augmentation is usually paired with the chin implant to create a fuller lower face, but this pairing is completely optional.

Patients who choose this implant have wide lower faces who want to have a defined jawline. Also, these facial implants are also best for candidates who suffer from overbites, misaligned teeth, open bites, or other abnormal bites that affect one’s appearance.

3. Malar Implants

Malar implants, also known as a cheek implant, increases the projection of the cheekbones. This augmentation is popular for individuals who have a weak facial bone structure. With a malar implant, the cheekbones will go from a flat surface to a more full structure. Because the malar region projects more than any other part of a person’s midface skeleton, the implant will be placed right on top of the existing cheekbone for the best result.

Patients will find that their cheeks are very prominent in their appearance. The more hollow the cheeks are, the older you will look. This causes people to look older than they actually are. Whether it be from aging or simply losing the bone structure (or density), the cheek implants will ensure the fullness of the cheekbone structure.

4. Nasal Implant

A nasal implant focuses on the shape of the nose. The implant will support the upper and lower lateral of the cartilage. By doing so, cartilage support will create an open airway, making it easier for patients to breathe.

This implant is more popular for individuals who have a hard time breathing. This is usually caused by a trauma-related injury or defects that remain from childhood. Patients who had this procedure found improvements including:

  • Reduced congestion and stuffiness
  • Improved ability to retain air through the nose while exercising
  • Reduced blockage or interference
  • Better sleeping habits
  • Easier to breathe overall through the nose

Determining if You’re a Good Candidate For Facial Implants

Facial implants are best to be performed on individuals whose skull and head have reached physical maturity, usually adulthood. It is also very popular for patients to go through this process after a trauma-related injury that was damaging to the face. Ideal candidates also include those who are non-smokers, are physically healthy, and contain a positive outlook on the procedures with specific and realistic goals for the surgeon to achieve.

Patients will sit down with their doctor before the procedure to discuss and examine the patient’s desires, this also includes body implants. This will help the patient and doctor understand the expectations and limitations.

Chin Implant for Men in NYC

What is a Chin Implant?

Chin implant surgery, or Mentoplasty, is the process of placing a medical-grade implant into the chin in order to improve the contours of the face. A weak or unpronounced chin is often the culprit of poor facial symmetry which potentially makes one’s nose appear larger than it actually is. A chin implant corrects these deficiencies. Dr. Steinbrech uses extended anatomic silicone implants that can be customized to meet each patient’s individual goals with the latest state-of-the-art shape techniques. Once completed, the implant provides a permanent solution for men looking for a more chiseled and masculine chin. Mentoplasty can be performed alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as Rhinoplasty and Jaw Implants to achieve more desirable facial proportions dependent upon the patient’s needs.

How is Chin Implant Surgery Performed?

Chin implant surgery is typically a fast procedure, taking 30 minutes to an hour to perform. All patients will be given a local anesthetic by a board-certified anesthesiologist chosen by Dr. Steinbrech for safety and comfort. Implants are inserted via a small incision in the patient’s natural crease line below the chin. Scars from this incision are often not visible following the surgery. Underlying or excess tissue is also removed during the procedure, allowing space for the implant to be placed on the mental protuberance (chin bone). All implants require a confidential consultation with Dr. Steinbrech prior to surgery.

*State-of-the-art Implants are made from a medical-grade material that feels like natural bone. They come in all shapes and sizes so that they can be tailored to the individual’s needs.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Chin Implant?

Chin augmentation is used to eliminate a receding or unpronounced chin. In this case, a synthetic implant is best for clients who want to improve their facial projection or balance. Candidacy is determined based on a patient’s health following a confidential consultation with Dr. Steinbrech at his NYC practice. Altering the appearance of the chin can greatly improve a man’s facial symmetry, particularly as it relates to the chin and nose. Mentoplasty is ideal for men looking to improve a:

  • Fleshy neck
  • Pointed chin
  • Prominent nose
  • Weak Chin
  • Recessed or double chin

Recovery Time

Due to small incisions made during chin augmentation, there may be mild discomfort following surgery. This begins to decrease after 3 days and can be diffused with oral medications and anti-inflammatories. After approximately a week post-procedure, most pain will have typically subsided. Minimal swelling is expected and patients may need to sleep with their head elevated for 2 to 3 weeks following chin implant surgery. Dr. Steinbrech advises that strenuous activity be avoided for up to 2 weeks.

Hollywood & Jaws Meet NYC

Summer may be ‘round the corner and once beach season truly hits, it’s all about one thing- JAWS. I don’t mean the voracious sea villain catapulted into fame by Steven Spielberg. I mean the cosmetic trend that is influencing male patients from all corners of the world.

And speaking of big blockbuster favorites, Hollywood has always played a huge role in uprising procedures especially the latest-Jaw Augmentation Surgery. Jaw augmentations are usually accompanied with the popularity of chin augmentation requests and consultations. This increase in awareness of this treatment/technique is being accredited to the superhuman appearance of the superheroes we love in large budget cinematic adventures. Enter Chris Hemsworth of The Avengers, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, and Christopher Pratt of Guardians of The Galaxy as some of the A-List hunks raising the bar and ideals of masculine features in the movie business and in the cosmetic industry for males.

Jaw Augmentation Surgery

Beauty and rugged good looks is not down to an exact science or formula of perfection.  However, some Facial Plastic Surgeons attribute a few specific balanced proportions that the “perfect” facial structure contains (i.e. height, width and symmetry). For example, many individuals tend to think of a large prominent jaw as being masculine and portrays strength on a man; conversely, a less defined jaw line appears feminine and seems “weak”.  In addition, an individual’s jaw imbalance can make other facial features seem distorted, making a small nose seem even smaller.

Jaw Augmentation or Mandibular Augmentation is most commonly performed to correct an inferior jaw structure due to a congenital deficiency or facial trauma. Jaw Augmentation is the use of synthetics or biologicals to augment, or make the mandibular structure of the face more prominent or defined.  It can give balance to an otherwise less defined face or further augment an already existent jaw structure. For jawline augmentation, an incision is made inside the mouth near the area of the third molars and an implant is inserted.  Both a jawline and chin augmentation can be performed within the same surgery for male patients in NYC. Hence, this is why the combination is very popular as they go hand in hand for optimal results.

Jaw augmentations produce extremely successful, desired results for those males who are looking to enhance a new level of confidence and get an edge on the competition. More often than not, males bring along a photo of the top granite actors they are trying to emulate. It is important to have open communication and understanding with your board-certified surgeon to achieve the right aesthetic look that meets the masculine standard.

Jaw Implants

A strong jaw line can provide definition to your facial contour and balance other features such as the cheek bones, chin, and nose. If you feel that a more prominent jaw line could help improve the overall appearance of your face, then jaw implants may be an excellent option to accomplish your aesthetic goals.

Considering Jaw Implants/Augmentation

Who is a good candidate for Jaw Augmentation?

It is important that your teeth and jaw function properly in order to ensure that your jaw implant procedure achieves your desired results. At your initial consultation, Dr. Douglas Steinbrech will evaluate your jaw function when deciding whether this is the right procedure for you.

Ideal jaw implant candidates should also be in good overall health and have reasonable expectations for the outcome of the procedure. Additional procedures may also be recommended in conjunction with your procedure to enhance the results.

Recovery

Slight swelling post jawline/chin augmentation surgery is common; quickly reducing within 24-48 hours after surgery. Most male patients in NYC return to work within a few days after augmentation surgery, however strenuous exercise should be avoided for ten days. It is always the best idea to follow a surgeon’s direct recovery plan as of course, any surgical procedure that is performed is extremely personal and customized. Instructions in the areas of dental and oral hygiene post-surgery should also be provided.
