Facial Implants

What are facial implants?

Facial implants are specially formed solid materials compatible with human tissues, designed to enhance or augment the physical structure of your face.

The precise type and size of facial implants best suited for you requires an evaluation of your goals, the features you wish to correct, and your surgeon’s judgment.

If you are bothered by a small chin, weak jaw, or lack of facial contour, plastic surgery with facial implants may benefit you.

While any area of your face can be augmented with implants, the cheek or malar area, chin, and jaw are the most common sites for facial implants.

Chin implants

Chin implants can increase the size and projection of a chin that is not in proportion with the forehead and mid-face.

A small or recessed chin can also be described as one that seems to disappear into the neck of an individual of normal weight, rather than appearing as a distinct facial feature.

Jaw implants

Jaw implants increase the width of the lower third of your face.

Much like the chin, a weak jaw can be thought of as one that is not well defined and distinct from the neck or one that slopes rather than angles from the ear to the chin.

In some cases, both the chin and jaw can contribute to facial imbalance.

Cheek implants

Cheek implants increase the projection of the cheekbones. They add volume to areas that may be recessed or flat

Hair Replacement

Hair transplantation involves removing small pieces of hair-bearing scalp grafts from a donor site and relocating them to a bald or thinning area.

If you and your doctor have determined that hair transplants are the best option for you, you can feel comfortable knowing that board-certified plastic surgeons have been successfully performing this type of procedure for more than thirty years.

The truth about hair loss

Baldness is often blamed on poor circulation to the scalp, vitamin deficiencies, dandruff, and even excessive hat-wearing. All of these theories have been disproved. It’s also untrue that hair loss can be determined by looking at your maternal grandfather, or that 40-year-old men who haven’t lost their hair will never lose it.

Hair loss is primarily caused by a combination of:

  • aging

  • a change in hormones

  • and a family history of baldness

As a rule, the earlier hair loss begins, the more severe the baldness will become.

Hair loss can also be caused by burns or trauma, in which case hair replacement surgery is considered a reconstructive treatment, and may be covered by health insurance.

Arm Lift Puerto Vallarta

An arm lift, or brachioplasty, is a surgical procedure that:

  • Reduces excess sagging skin that droops downward

  • Tightens and smoothes the underlying supportive tissue that defines the shape of the upper arm

  • Reduces localized pockets of fat in the upper arm region

Fluctuations in weight, growing older, and heredity can cause your upper arms to have a drooping, sagging appearance. This is a condition that cannot be corrected through exercise.

Arm lift surgery may be right for you if the underside of your upper arms are sagging or appear loose and full due to excess skin and fat.

Arm lift candidates

In general, arm lift candidates include:

  • Adults with significant upper arm skin laxity

  • Adults of any age whose weight is relatively stable and who are not significantly overweight

  • Healthy individuals without medical conditions that impair healing or increase risk of surgery

  • Non-smokers Individuals with a positive outlook and realistic expectations
