Facial implants offer a solution for shaping and refining facial contours. Dr. Carey Nease is a triple board-certified plastic surgeon, specializing in facial surgeries. Dr. Nease and his staff at Nease Cosmetic Surgery perform facial implant surgery on residents living in Scottsboro, Ft. Payne, Huntsville, and the surrounding areas of north Alabama.
What Are Facial Implants?
Facial implants are small, sculpted, synthetic pieces designed to be compatible with human tissue. They’re used to define, balance, and enhance the contours of the face.
Face implants are most commonly used in the enhancement of the chin, cheeks, lips, or jaw. These implants are helpful in creating or improving the overall shape and appearance of the face.
How Much Do Facial Implants Cost in North Alabama and Huntsville area?
Face implants at Nease Cosmetic Surgery range from $2,500 to $4,000 depending on the scope of the work, the type of implants used, and the number of areas treated.
It’s important to us that our patients have access to the facial rejuvenation procedures they want that can dramatically change the way they feel about their appearance. To help accomplish that, we offer complimentary consultations along with several payment options, including cash, credit cards, and financing through CareCredit®.
What Are Chin Implants?
Chin implants are used to enhance the size of, or add shape and definition to, an underdeveloped chin or a chin with a weak appearance. At Nease Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Cary Nease uses silicone implants for chin augmentation procedures.
Chin augmentation is achieved by placing the implant around the existing bone structure of the chin to provide more definition to the chin and a better balance in overall facial appearance.
What Are Cheek Implants?
Cheek augmentation with cheek implants can be done either with incisions in the mouth or underneath the eyelid. The purpose of cheek implants is to add volume or provide a lift to the cheek area.
Cheek augmentation can also be achieved by transferring fat tissue from one area of the body to the cheeks, providing a more natural solution for adding volume to the cheeks.
What Are Lip Implants?
Lip augmentation can be accomplished either with solid lip implants or, in some cases, dermal fillers specifically designed for use in the lip area. The lip implants used by Dr. Nease are made of silicone. Lip augmentation is typically longer-lasting with implants than with dermal fillers.
What Are the Benefits of Facial Implants?
The benefits of facial implants can be almost as dramatic as the results, and most patients who choose facial implants are delighted with both. Some of the most common benefits include:
- Enhanced structure and overall appearance of the face
- More youthful and rejuvenated appearance
- Better balance and proportion of facial features
- Procedure time and recovery period are both fairly short
- A dramatic increase in self-confidence
Am I a Good Candidate for Facial Implants?
Generally speaking, if you’re a healthy adult with realistic expectations about your results, you’re likely a good candidate for facial implants. Your doctor will help you determine if facial implants are the best option for you.
What is Facial Implant Recovery Like?
Results can be seen right away, although there may be some bruising and swelling. While recovery time will vary from one individual to the next, most will be able to return to normal activities within a week or two.
