Facial implant surgery provides precise augmentation of facial features to improve facial harmony and sculpt each patient’s ideal facial contours.
WHAT ARE FACIAL IMPLANTS?
Facial implants are medical devices made of silicone that can be placed to augment facial features and improve the facial appearance. Facial implants are most often used to resolve cosmetic concerns with the cheeks, chin, and jawline.
Facial implants can transform your appearance by enhancing facial structure, balance, and symmetry. Facial implants also provide improved skeletal support, so patients appear younger and more refreshed.
Facial implants may be purchased as templates or can be customized depending on each patient’s facial structure, unique needs, and desired outcome. While facial filler injections and other minimally invasive treatments are effective facial sculpting methods, silicone facial implants are longer-lasting, more durable, and can provide more dramatic results.

Right for you?
Am I a Good Candidate for Facial Implants?
Dr. Emer can determine the best facial sculpting treatment for you by meeting with you for a consultation. After performing an examination of your facial structure and tissues and learning about your treatment goals, Dr. Emer will develop a customized protocol to help you achieve your desired look.
Facial implants are not right for everyone. Children under the age of 16 are not good candidates for facial implants, as their facial structure is still developing. Facial implants are also not recommended for older patients with considerable bone loss in the treatment area.
You may be a candidate for facial implants if:
- You suffer from a weak chin.
- You suffer from facial asymmetry.
- You would like more definition in the cheeks or jaw.
- You would like to correct facial sagging and other signs of aging.
- You are of sound mind and body.
- You have fully developed facial features.
- You are a non-smoker.
- You are free of any major medical issues that interfere with the body’s ability to heal.
- You are realistic in your expectations for your results.
HOW IS THE FACIAL IMPLANT PERFORMED?
Unlike facial filler injections—which are typically short-acting with minimal downtime—silicone implants are long-lasting, durable, reversible, and provide more dramatic results. Facial implants may be purchased as templates or customized depending on each patient’s facial structure, unique needs and desired outcome.
Dr. Emer is so skilled and a master at facial sculpting. I saw him for Bellafill treatment for more defined cheekbone structure. He delivered. I love my results and that he took the time to understand the natural more masculine look I was wanting to achieve. You will not be disappointed ! – CD
I’ve been following Dr. Emer on Instagram for quite a while, and I’ve always imagined myself as a male facial sculpting patient. I finally made the decision to undergo facial sculpting with dermal fillers. I didn’t like my chin (I felt that it wasn’t defined enough) and I also wanted to contour my cheekbones, jawline and temples. I am blown away by my results. As this being the first time ever having filler, I was nervous about looking “different” or “overdone,” but I look like a better version of MYSELF!!!! I would not trust anyone else with my face. Dr. Emer and his staff are amazing!!! – WF
Finding Dr. Emer was one of the best things that could have happened. Everything from my initial consultation to the procedures was extremely easy, great experience. I went in for both Botox and facial sculpting and I absolutely love the final results. I look forward to going back to see Dr. Emer and his team again soon. – AT
What to Expect During Facial Implant Surgery
Facial implant surgery typically takes about two hours. The length of your surgery will depend on the number of implants being placed and the complexity of your specific procedure.
To begin, the plastic surgeon will mark the treatment area, making a map for the surgery. Next, general anesthesia will be administered.
The plastic surgeon can then make the necessary incision(s) for placing your facial implant(s). The implant is then inserted via the incision and carefully positioned in the facial tissue. The surgeon will close the incision(s) to complete the procedure.
What to Expect After Facial Implant Surgery
Dr. Emer and his team will guide you through the recovery process by providing personalized aftercare guidelines. In general, patients need about a week off of work to recover and best support the body’s healing process in the initial days after the surgery.
Tenderness and tightness in the treatment area can be expected after facial implant surgery. Medications can be prescribed to minimize post-operative discomfort. You may be instructed to wear a compression garment to promote optimal healing and protect your new facial shape.
You may need to restrict your diet in the early stage of your recovery. A liquid diet may be recommended for a day or two after your procedure, followed by a diet of soft foods for several more days.
Follow-up appointments should be scheduled to allow Dr. Emer and his team to monitor your healing progress. As the area heals, you will be able to gradually return to all of your normal activities, as directed.
Facial Implant Results
Facial implants provide permanent improvements, though it will take some time to see your final results. As swelling subsides over several weeks, you will begin to notice your new facial contours. Full healing and settling of the implant to reveal your complete results can take about six weeks.
