Human beings are driven toward perfection. We strive to reshape our world to match our desires and ideals. We aim to attain the best version of ourselves through education, healthy competition, and goal setting.
That same eagerness to manage our destiny applies to improving our appearance. From the dawn of history, men, women, and children have enhanced their looks with tattoos, body and face paint, elaborate hairdos, jewelry, and clothing. We now live in an age where we can take that desire to augment our looks a step farther by using facial implants that create more balanced, proportional, and harmonious features.
Good Looks Lead to Good Things
Facial implants can bring more than cosmetic benefits. One European study showed that people who underwent cosmetic surgery to rectify a feature that displeased them improved their quality of life, mental health, and satisfaction when compared to those who’d only considered plastic surgery but hadn’t moved forward with their plans.
Other studies demonstrate that people who are physically attractive are also more successful and wealthier than those who are below average in looks. It’s not just their harmonious features that give beautiful people an edge; it’s the confidence that comes with looking good and getting positive reinforcement from others. Increased exposure thanks to social media platforms makes it ever more imperative for men and women of all ages to look their best.
Julio Garcia, MD, a Las Vegas plastic surgeon, is an expert in using symmetry and harmony to create a more beautiful appearance. As a trained artist and surgeon with an undergraduate degree in Art History, Dr. Garcia learned aesthetic techniques that allow him to create flattering, proportional features in anyone who desires them. Dr. Garcia offers facial implants as well as a variety of plastic and cosmetic surgery procedures, anti-aging interventions, and revolutionary skin care, to enhance your looks.
Facial implants can correct:
- Small or weak chins
- Flat cheekbones
- Poorly defined jawlines
- Poorly contoured faces
As long as your head and skull have reached physical maturity (which usually occurs in the mid to late teenaged years), you may be a candidate for improving your looks with facial implants. Facial implants are made of nonreactive silicone or polythene that can last for years, decades, or a lifetime.
Give Yourself a Stronger Presence
It may not be fair, but an under-projected or recessed chin is associated with undesirable personality traits such as weakness, lack of authority, and — in the case of men — lack of masculinity.
A chin implant adds length to your chin, bringing it into alignment with the plane of your lips. When your chin is better projected, your profile looks stronger and more confident. Dr. Garcia helps you choose the right size and type of chin implant to balance your chin with the rest of the face, creating facial harmony.
Either as an addition to a chin implant, or as an improvement in itself, you can choose an implant that creates a stronger, more chiseled jawline. Both men and women can benefit from a sleek and polished look to their jaw, which is associated with health, wealth, youth, and vitality.
Dr. Garcia inserts chin and jaw implants through incisions that are made either under the chin or inside the mouth. Surgery usually takes about an hour.
Many men and women who strengthen their looks with chin and jaw implants often opt for liposuction to remove double chins. Dr. Garcia performs liposuction to define the jawline even more beautifully, adding emphasis to your new contours. As an added bonus, facial liposuction slightly tightens the skin underneath the chin and jaw.
Another common add-on procedure to a chin implant is rhinoplasty to shorten or straighten the nose. The combination of rhinoplasty with a chin implant can make a remarkable difference in your attractiveness and confidence.
Create an Elegant and Ageless Look
It’s no secret that the world’s most beautiful men and women have high, contoured cheekbones. High cheekbones are not only elegant, they help lift the facial tissues, preventing them from sagging. Psychologically, we tend to assign both authority and trustworthiness to people with high cheekbones.
If you have flat cheekbones, you may feel frustrated by the lack of definition in your face. If you are aging, you have probably noticed that your face droops more than your peers with higher cheekbones.
Cheek implants can give you an immediate lift and create a more sophisticated, ageless look. Dr. Garcia helps you find the size and shape of cheek implant that harmonizes with you facial features, gives you a more proportional appearance, and augments your natural beauty.
Dr. Garcia inserts cheek implants through incisions made either through the inside of your mouth, inside the lower eyelids, or within the hairline. Surgery takes about one hour.
Recovering from Facial Implants
Facial implant surgery can be performed in the office with local anesthesia. You will swollen and bruised for several days afterward. Any discomfort can be alleviated with icing, compression, and over-the-counter painkillers.
You should be able to return to work or school one week after your procedure. Most men and women resume their full range of normal activities about four weeks after their implant surgery.
Your New Look and Your New Life
When a surgical and aesthetic expert like Dr. Garcia chooses and inserts the right implants for your face, the results will be stunning but natural. You will still look like yourself, only stronger, better, and more proportional.
Facial implant surgery is often combined with liposuction, rhinoplasty, laser therapy, upper and lower blepharoplasty, facelift, neck lift, mini lift, or brow lift. The aim in any cosmetic procedure is always to make you look like the best version of yourself.
When you’re ready to explore the possibility of facial implants and want to know where to find the best plastic surgeon in Las Vegas, Dr. Garcia will be happy to meet with you. Move forward with your desire to improve yourself and find out how a more finely balanced face can enhance your natural beauty and well-being for years to come.
