When giving consideration to cosmetic surgery, jawline enhancement from Spalding Plastic Surgery plays a fundamental role in creating a chiseled, athletic appearance. This will help to accentuate other cosmetic procedures that have been performed on the face as well. There are essentially two distinct procedures performed on the jaw area: facial fat grafting and implants.
Facial fat grafting involves carefully harvesting fat cells from a pre-determined location on the body and transferring them into the jawline. The fat cells are placed in specific areas to improve the overall appearance of the jaw. Facial fat grafting will improve jaw definition, facial profile and facial balance. The removal of additional fat in the neck area can also help accentuate the changes made to the jawline.
Facial fat grafting is generally an outpatient procedure, which means that it doesn’t have to be held in a hospital but instead can be performed in a doctor’s office. This surgery can take up to three hours to complete. Swelling and bruising associated with this surgery can be expected to subside within one week to ten days. Supervised care is also recommended for the first 24 hours after surgery.
Surgical implants may also be used to alter the overall appearance of the jaw line. Although the primary focus is on the area of the chin, the use of facial implants has advanced to include other locations of the jaw structure as well.
The materials used for jaw implantation are designed to be compatible with the human body. This helps eliminate the possibility of the body rejecting an implant. Thanks to advanced technology, the possibility of the body rejecting an implant is slim. Jawline implants are inserted through small incisions and affixed to the jaw with titanium screws. In almost all cases, this surgery is considered reversible if the patient finds he is unhappy with the overall results.
As with all cosmetic surgical procedures, both facial fat grafting and facial implantation are subject to inherent risk. Possible infection may be considered the most likely risk to present itself, but proper surgical procedures drastically reduce such issues. It’s extremely important that the surgeon uses sterilized surgical tools. Contact our experts today for a consultation and a calculated prediction of what is possible for your facial plastic surgery.
