As with any surgical procedure, facial implants require extensive training and in-depth knowledge of the area of the body you’re working with. In addition to medical school, Dr. Lucas attended dental school and completed fellowships in both maxillofacial (oral) and craniofacial plastic surgery. Because of this, he understands the structure and mechanics of the face better than most, giving him a unique perspective of each patient’s transformation.
You may be wondering if a facial implant is right for you. Facial implants, a type of Facial Skeletal Augmentation, are typically used to improve imbalance issues on the face that can cause you to appear disproportional. In many cases, they’re also used to make the face appear more masculine or feminine, improve the appearance of the neck area, and tighten skin — creating a more youthful, natural look without a drastic change in appearance.
At the end of the day, we’re all human. We all have things we love about our appearance, and things we don’t. The Lucas Center is here to make you more confident than you ever thought you’d be. Whether you’re interested in a shorter chin, rounder cheeks, or teeth that don’t show as much when you smile, we’re here for you.
Types of Facial Skeletal Augmentation:
- Chin or cheek implants
- Lower jaw enhancements
- Genioplasty (chin repositioning)
