Malarial implants are an effective method to correct the shape, the outline of a person’s face, by creating a new symmetry.
This procedure can be done in a variety of ways, using synthetic materials such as hyaluronic acid or its own fat or silicone implants.Facial implants are used to produce three-dimensional facial changes. By extending the boundaries of bone prominences, the proportions and face shape can undergo dramatic changes.
Facial implants have a dual role:
- to camouflage bone deficiencies;
- to amplify a normal prominence in the facial structure
For a complete remodeling, multiple facial implants can be used: combinations of cheekbones and chin (duo) implants or chin, cheeks and jaw (trio) implants.An ideal combination of facial implants can correct a facial medial shape deficiency (the area between the ocular alveolar and the superior dental structure). This deficiency offers a flat face, a deep nasal base, a retracted bone structure. In this case, a combination of implants is recommended: cheeks (2) and paranasal (2).
The median face area includes three areas: jaw, pre-maxillary and paranasal; the implants for each of these areas correct the planar character or excessive concavity of the medial facial area.
- paranasal implant – corrects the look of the nose base;
- the premaxilar implant helps to pull the nasal base outward, opening the nasolabial angle;
- the implant under the orbital alveolum – fills the suborbital shaft to form as a result of tissue atrophy, the effect of aging (also injections with dermal fillets to correct the depth of the suborbital trench, but the effects will not be permanent)
There are 4 types of such implants depending on the link they make between different areas of the face:
- from the lower line of the orbit to the nose;
- from the lower line of the orbit to the lacrimal bone;
- from the lower line of the orbit to the cheekbones;
- towards the external corner of the eye
This implant is placed through an incision in the lower eyelid, on the bone; lift the periosteum of the bone to ensure partial or total implant coverage to prevent palpability of the implant margins.
The nasolabial implant – is placed on the bone on the sides of the nose and smooths the nasolabial creases (dips that appear between the nose and the corners of the lips)
The most common facial implants are malignant implants (cheeks), menstrual implants (chin) and jaw implants (upper and inferior).
