Facial Implant Surgery

Thursday, August 24, 2017

Facial implants are a common and effective solution to enhance ones facial proportions.  When we refer to facial implant surgery this generally covers both  cheek implants or a chin implant.  Both can renew or improve your facial contours.

The chin is considered one of the most important aesthetic landmarks of the lower face.  When combined with the nose the chin determines how balanced an individual’s facial profile is.  In both men and women a prominent chin will counteract age related changes to the lower face and neck, can help prevent the formation of jowls and strengthens the overall jaw line.

Cheek implants, often referred to as cheek augmentation, can give fullness to flat cheekbones and restore a more youthful look.  Genetics, trauma or ageing in general can result in a person losing or having inadequate volume in the cheek area.  Cheek implants can help minimise this. 

Chin and cheek implants both generally provide subtle enhancements, aiming to provide overall improvements to facial symmetry and a more youthful and balanced look. Mr Mutimer is an advocate for natural looking facial implant surgery.   If you are considering a chin implant or cheek implants it is important that you consult with a Specialist Plastic Surgeon who is best placed to assess your unique situation and discuss with you realistically what can be achieved. 

Our website has additional information on facial implant surgery including cost estimates and the ability to view procedures in 3D.  Alternatively feel free to contact us should you have further questions or wish to make a confidential enquiry.

Wherever possible we have moved to telehealth for other appointments.   We are not able to undertake any wrinkle reduction or cosmetic treatments until further notice, we are however taking bookings for when it is safe to resume.

For urgent (trauma) cases arising after hours – we’ve added after hour surgeon contact details to our main office phone. If you call and our practice is closed, you’ll receive further instruction. Please note that contacting surgeons out of hours is only for urgent cases.

We thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate these challenging times.

The team at Brighton Plastic Surgery would like to assure clients that we continue to closely monitor the unfolding COVID-19 situation and are implementing all necessary safety measures and closely following Health Department Guidelines.

Our practice continues to operate at this time however many changes are in place. Additional measures have been implemented to protect our patients and staff at this uncertain time. Some of these include:

  • Hand wash stations: you’ll find these at our entrance. All people entering our premises are required to thoroughly wash hands on arrival, and upon leaving.
  • Phone appointments – it is not always possible, however where we’re able we are now providing phone consultations, limiting the number of people passing through our practice whilst still providing important patient care and guidance.
  • Limited number of people in our practice at any given time– at this time only essential support people may attend a client’s appointment.  Please be mindful that as a support person you may be asked to wait in your car. If you are attending an appointment on your own, you may also be asked to wait in your car until we are ready for your appointment. The seating capacity in the reception area is deliberately very limited
  • Cashless payments – We’ve moved to cashless payments wherever possible.
If you are unwell you will not be able to attend the practice for your appointment. Please phone us and we will guide you in regard to your ongoing care.

If you have an upcoming appointment our staff will contact you to discuss how this will be managed for you.

We thank you for your understanding and patience as we navigate these challenging times.
