Facial Implants for Improved Facial Contour

Because the size, angle, and shape of facial features such as the cheeks, chin, and nose can have great impact on facial symmetry and overall attractiveness, facial implants have become a desired and viable option for many people. With facial implants, Dr. Kienstra can augment the facial anatomy as a fairly simple single procedure or  in combination with other surgical procedures to give that added definition needed.

Chin Implants

Chin implants can help balance the features of the face, especially a large nose. Occasionally, a chin implant is done in combination with a rhinoplasty procedure to improve a weak chin and lessen the prominence of the nose. A chin implant could also enhance the benefits of a facelift by elongating the jawline. The surgery itself is relatively simple. A tiny incision is made under the chin to insert the implant, leaving only a small, virtually undetectable scar.

Digital computer imaging can help you and Dr. Kienstra decide which chin implant design will best improve your profile yet look very natural. 

Cheek Implants

We offer anatomically-shaped implants of various sizes to augment the cheeks. Whether the lack of prominence of your cheekbone structure has bothered you for a long time or the loss of fat and volume has developed with aging, cheek implants can reconfigure the cheek area to a fuller, more pleasing profile. Cheek implants are inserted through a small incision inside the mouth that allows for quick and invisible healing. During your consultation, Dr. Kienstra will help you decide if cheek implants will bring you the change you desire.
