What are Facial Implants?
If you're unhappy with the appearance of your profile due to sunken cheeks or a recessed chin, facial implants at The Pacific Coast Center for Oral, Facial & Cosmetic Surgery may be a great option. Board-certified surgeon Dr. Husam Elias offers facial implants as a way for men and women to achieve a more prominent profile. This enhancement option can be customized to meet your particular needs and creates subtle but stunning changes to your overall look. For more information on how facial implants in the cheeks or chin can help you create the look you desire, contact our Pasadena, CA office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Elias.
What is the Facial Implant Procedure?
Before your cheek or chin augmentation, Dr. Elias will complete a thorough assessment and create a personalized treatment plan that is ideal for your cosmetic goals. These facial implant options are outpatient procedures. Once you are prepped, thin incisions will be created. If receiving cheek implants, the incisions will be made inside your mouth in the gums and a pocket will be made above the cheekbone; for chin implants, an incision is placed beneath your chin. Next, the implants will be securely placed and the incisions will be sutured. The surgery typically takes about an hour, and you will be allowed to leave with a family member or friend to recover at home. With cheek augmentation surgery, you should expect to experience bruising, swelling, and tightness for 1 – 3 weeks following your procedure. Vigorous activity that will cause your facial muscles to strain (such as weight training) should be avoided during this period. Total healing usually is achieved in about two months, but the outcomes can last for many years. Cold packs and over-the-counter pain relievers can be used to lessen any pain. Final results are typically seen in 10 – 14 days.
Pacific Coast Center Reviews
My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room. Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:
Dr. Elias pulled my wisdom teeth out like they called his mamma fat or something! Surgery was quick and basically painless. Didn’t need any of the pain meds and was back at work two days later looking like a snack. Diane was the nurse that took care of me for most of the process and she was so wonderful, kind, funny and sweet. If my wisdom teeth every grow back, I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Elias immediately. Thank you!
Dr. Stephens is the best!
went here for wisdom teeth removal and Dr Stephens was great. we had a detailed consultation and decided which route was best, then Greg the anesthesiologist called me the night before to address any concerns I was having. The most positive surgery experience I could have had
