Feel renewed and achieve the improved look that you've always envisioned. Facial implants can beautifully enhance your features. Consider a facial, chin, jaw, cheek or temple implant today and see the difference not only in your appearance but also in your self-esteem.
Adding facial implants to the facial skeleton can accentuate the areas of the cheek, chin, nose, and angle of the lower jaw. These skeletal augmentations re-drape and tighten the skin of the face to provide a more youthful appearance without the need for a more extensive lifting procedure. For example, a teenage girl may want her nose reshaped or chin brought forward to improve her proportion. Or as part of a facelift, a patient may want implants placed over the cheekbones to help restore a more youthful appearance. Implants may be used to fill out a face that appears “sunken” or tired.
Silicone implants are soft and feel like your own tissue. Silicone is close in chemical composition to carbon, which makes up our tissues. This allows silicone implants to have great compatibility when they are implanted into our bodies.
Most work on silicone implants are based in the breast area. Silicone implants never get integrated with the body’s tissues. A soft capsule forms around the implant. We have noticed when doing revisions for people with previous implants that the capsule can be formed by bone. We prefer silicone implants in the cheeks, chin, lateral jaws, and lips.
Medpor implants are made of porous polyethylene with little holes over the implant. The pore size is around 100 microns allowing blood vessels to grow into the implant. The blood vessels can fight any infection developing in the pores. The time to integration is 12 weeks. The medpor can then start acting like your own tissue. Early on, the chance of infection is a little higher for medpor implants than with silicone implants. But after 12 weeks, the chance of infection is lower compared to silicone.

“I just wanted to leave a note and say that my procedure with Dr. Young approximately 6 years ago took years off my face. He did an excellent job and I am still enjoying the results. It was very much worth the downtime. I look exactly like myself, just younger. Thanks, again!”
“He gave me my confidence back that I thought I would never get back. I can now look in the mirror and actually love what I see and not have to deal with pitted scars in my face. If you or anyone you know who thinks they have to just live with these scars, don't!”
“My procedure went great and I left the office with no concerns and all of my questions answered. I have never felt so good about myself and my appearance. I have you to thank for that Dr. Young. My new nose is perfect, I cannot thank you enough for this new look on life.”
