- Posted on: Sep 15 2022
Dr. Homayoun Sasson of the Great Neck, NY areas finds that many men and women have imperfections in the face that cannot be treated without plastic surgery. This includes poorly defined contours of the face, cheekbones, or chin. With the use of facial implants, many patients can achieve a more attractive appearance.

What is a facial implant?
Facial implants are devices that are placed under the skin to add volume and definition to the face. They are most commonly used to improve the appearance of the chin, cheeks, and jawline.
Many different types of facial implants are available, made from various materials like silicone. Dr. Homayoun Sasson will recommend the best type of implant for you based on your desired results and individual anatomy.
How are facial implants placed, and what can I expect from the procedure?
Facial implants are typically placed through incisions in the mouth or lower eyelid. The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes about 1-2 hours. Recovery from surgery is typically brief, with most patients able to return to their normal activities within a week. Patients will want to schedule a follow-up appointment a few weeks following their surgery for an evaluation with our team to ensure proper healing and recovery.
What are the risks associated with facial implants?
As with any surgery, some risks are associated with facial implant surgery. These include infection, bleeding, and reactions to the anesthesia. Dr. Homayoun Sasson will discuss all potential risks and complications with you before your surgery to make an informed decision about whether or not this procedure is right for you.
