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.

Weight Loss Plastic Surgery for Men in NYC

For most men, losing the weight required to maintain a healthy lifestyle is a difficult task. It is important to value the weight on your body, as it can be the source of serious health concerns. Men who are overweight are at risk for a myriad of health issues including diabetes, strokes, heart attack, cancers, and more. Not only will weight loss surgery ease the possibility of a life-threatening condition, but it will also increase the chances of a longer (and happier) life. Listed as Forbes’ go-to surgeon for men, Dr. Steinbrech specializes in weight loss plastic surgery at his NYC practice.

Massive Weight Loss Surgery Options

There are multiple different forms of weight loss surgery that Dr. Steinbrech can perform to help patients achieve desirable and long-lasting results. In order to determine which surgery is best, there will be a consultation beforehand to discuss the following options:

TorsoTuck™ Bodylift

The TorsoTuck™ was developed by Dr. Steinbrech for male patients who, after achieving massive weight loss, are faced with excess skin that hangs from the torso. This specialized procedure targets this loose skin, leaving the patient with a tighter, more natural-looking chest to complement their weight loss. Unlike typical body lifts, Dr. Steinbrech’s TorsoTuck™ procedure targets the male body from all angles, one which aims for minimal scarring and can include other problem areas such as the thighs and the buttocks.

How to Determine Which Is Best for You

Before deciding which option is best for you, there will be an initial consultation in which Dr. Steinbrech will examine your body mass and discuss your cosmetics goals. From this meeting, Dr. Steinbrech will come to a conclusion on which surgery option will be best for each individual case—there is no “one size fits all.” Massive weight loss surgery was created to make your life better and put your body concerns to rest. It reassures the values and importance of a healthy weight and mind. In order to be a candidate, it is vital for your body weight to remain stable for one year.

What To Expect

Many of these surgeries are performed using general amnesia. The length of the surgery will be dependent on the extent of the surgery. The surgeries consist of tightening and repositioning the muscles and skin. The recovery time depends on the type of surgical procedure. In most cases, a patient undergoing a full-body lift will take about 4 to 6 weeks to completely recover. Patients may feel discomfort in the areas of the procedures during the healing process, which makes the downtime even more valuable.

Results

The results of each procedure are astonishing. Dr. Steinbrech has documented the before and after results from a massive weight loss with torso tuck body lift procedure. Patients should see results perfectly after the recovery time.

Jaw Implant for Men in NYC

What is a Jaw Implant?

Jaw implant surgery, or Genioplasty, is a procedure that enhances one’s facial anatomy with the use of a state-of-the-art silicone implant. Jaw augmentation contours the face’s side profile and harmonizes facial symmetry for a more natural, masculine look. Board-certified Dr. Steinbrech specializes in male anatomy. His NYC practice offers various customizable implant sizes and shapes to meet each patient’s unique goal. Dr. Steinbrech’s NYC office also uses the latest in 3D computer imaging technology to manufacture a one-of-a-kinds implant tailored to the needs of each patient. In addition, Dr. Steinbrech may recommend pairing jaw augmentation with Rhinoplasty or Mentoplasty (chin augmentation) to optimize the results of surgery.

How is Jaw Implant Surgery Performed?

Using a local anesthetic, jaw implant surgery takes just 30 minutes to an hour to complete. Following a CT scan and general health assessment, your medical professionals will help you prepare for the procedure. The customized implant is inserted with a tiny incision inside of the patient’s jawline or mouth. This implant can be placed over any bone deficiencies, leaving the patient with a more youthful, chiseled facial shape. After implant surgery, scars are typically non-visible and self-dissolving sutures are placed on the incision. Each implant is made to look and feel natural on the bone.

Who is a Good Candidate for a Jaw Implant?

All patients are advised to be in good health (non-smokers) before considering jaw implant surgery. Candidacy can be further determined during your initial consultation with Dr. Steinbrech at his NYC practice. Altering the appearance of the jaw can greatly improve the balance of the face as well as counteract signs of aging. Jaw implant surgery is best for men looking to improve upon:

  • Facial symmetry due to an injury or accident
  • Natural bone deficiencies in the jawline
  • Chewing dynamics
  • Restore contour due to a congenital condition
  • Weak jawline

Recovery Time

Customized jaw implant surgery is typically followed by mild swelling due to incisions made inside the mouth. However, this swelling usually begins to subside around the 48-hour mark and will resolve within the first month post-procedure. Dr. Steinbrech recommends a soft diet for about the first week as the sutures dissolve inside the mouth. If necessary, antibiotics or medication may be prescribed and patients can return to most normal activities within the first week. It is advised that overtly strenuous exercise be postponed for 14 days. The final results continue to improve by the month. Minor adjustments to oral hygiene are modified post-surgery with the assistance of Dr. Steinbrech’s office.

Cheek Implant for Men in NYC

What is a Cheek Implant?

Cheek implant surgery is often performed to accentuate the cheekbones and improve the appearance of a “flattened” face. There are 3 types of cheek implants which include malar, sub-malar, or both. These implants are placed directly onto the bone, giving the cheek a greater volume and projection. A cheek implant also tightens skin, resulting in a more sculpted, youthful look. Dr. Steinbrech performs cheek implant surgery at his fully-accredited NYC surgical center alone or in conjunction with other procedures such as chin implant surgery to achieve more desirable facial symmetry. Conversely, patients may also choose facial fat injections as an alternative to synthetic cheek implants.

How is Cheek Implant Surgery Performed?

Prior to the cheek implant procedure, your surgeon will help you choose a customizable implant that best suits your situation and desired look. Using a local anesthetic, tiny incisions (of only about 1 tenth of an inch) are made near the cheeks, under the eye, or most commonly, above the gum line. From there, the implant is inserted into either the malar or sub-malar region depending on the goal of surgery. The incisions are closed up with sutures following the procedure’s completion. The full surgery may take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours. All implants require a confidential consultation with Dr. Steinbrech prior to surgery. Each implant is created by Dr. Steinbrech’s team using medical-grade material that mimics the look and feel of natural bone.

Who is a Good Candidate for Cheek Implant Surgery?

The best candidates for cheek augmentation surgery are patients seeking correction of an indistinct or weak cheekbone structure. Cheek implants are often chosen because they offer dramatic yet subtle results. As men age, they lose natural volume in their cheeks and face which can create a “hollow” look. Synthetic cheek implants are also ideal for patients seeking to reverse undesirable facial contours due to genetics. Men in good health are typically good candidates for cheek implants, especially those looking to improve:

  • Deep nasolabial folds
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Sunken under eyes
  • Aging facial skin
  • Sagging jowls

Recovery Time

During recovery, patients are able to return home the same day. Though some moderate swelling around the cheekbones can persist for 2 to 3 days, this usually subsides thereafter. After the 2 week mark, visible signs of swelling should be resolved entirely. However, it may take up a month for all swelling to fully disappear. Dr. Steinbrech may prescribe medication or anti-inflammatories following surgery to make one’s recovery time more comfortable. Sutures in the mouth dissolve but patients are required to make minor adjustments to their oral hygiene routine as the incisions heal. In addition, it is advised that patients stick to a soft diet for the first day. Following this, it is recommended to avoid sharp or hard foods for 1 to 2 months.

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.
