As we age, our faces lose volume. This gives an aging look. Implant surgery restores fullness on the face in a simple way, reducing the recovery period.
Forehead Contouring Surgery
1. Fat graft:
Fat graft (fat transfer) is appropriate when the forehead is less or locally sunken. Fat is harvested from the thighs or the abdomen.
The harvested fat is purified and the pure fat is injected into the desired areas.
As the surgery is performed with autogenous tissue and fat is injected with a needle, forehead contouring surgery with a fat graft is considerably safer, with the least complications and scarring.
2. Forehead implant:
A forehead implant is recommended when the forehead is significantly sunken and patients prefer a permanent and dramatic change.
One to two weeks prior to the surgery, a cast of the forehead is taken and the customized implant is prepared in advance.
An incision is made on the scalp, which will not be visible after a few months. By using a customized implant, the forehead will have definite change and volume. The shape and surface are even and the result lasts forever.
A 3-4cm incision is made above the hair on the scalp.
The pocket for the implant is made and the implant is inserted.
The implant is fixed and the wound is closed with sutures.
Derma filler is recommended to those who prefer a fast recovery and a quick and simple procedure.
The biggest advantage of the filler is there is no recovery period. Patients can go back to their daily routine right away.
Generally, there will be swelling for two to three days, but it is very subtle. You can wash your face on the day of the procedure.
Chin Implant Surgery
Chin implant surgery changes the volume, shape, or location of the chin by inserting an implant. This approach is recommended when the chin is less receded.
