Your facial structure can be enhanced by placing custom implants to create a more chiseled, elegant look, adding projection and volume to the cheeks, lips, chin, or jawline. Facial implants are available in a vast array of sizes and shapes, and when under the care of Dr. Balinger, beautiful changes to your facial structure can be achieved. If you want to have a more refined facial structure with long-term results, this procedure could be your answer.
What is the recovery time?
It is normal to expect some swelling or bruising after the implant is placed, which fades in the coming days, with your enhanced facial look appearing. Keep your head elevated both during waking hours and while sleeping, and apply cold packs to limit swelling. As the incisions may be within the mouth, you may need to eat only soft foods or a liquid diet in the first phase of healing.
Preparing for your facial implant
Every person is different, but at Balinger Plastic Surgery in Houston, your facial implant surgery will be performed with the most stringent health and safety protocols.
