Facial Implant Surgery in Oakland
If you are interested in enhancing your facial appearance and improving the balance of your facial features, facial implant surgery may be a good option for you. Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis are pleased to offer two main types of facial implant surgery in Oakland, California: chin implants and lip augmentation.
A chin implant is an excellent solution for our patients who would like to correct a recessed chin or increase the projection and size of their chin. These patients often feel that their chin is out of proportion with their forehead and mid-face. A chin implant can improve the appearance of the chin and provide the face with greater balance.
Because full, plump lips have long been considered a desirable feature, lip augmentation is another very popular procedure. To help you achieve fuller, shapelier lips, we may recommend lip implants. While injectable fillers offer temporary results, lip implants can give you permanently enhanced lips. Lip augmentation is a great option for achieving plumper lips and enhancing your overall facial appearance.
What is facial implant surgery?
Facial implant surgery uses implants to help you achieve an enhanced facial appearance with greater symmetry. Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis, our board-certified plastic surgeons, are experienced in facial implant surgery and is committed to helping you reach the beautiful results you desire.
Facial implant surgery is performed on an outpatient basis and is often completed under sedation and local anesthesia. For chin augmentation, Dr. Togba and Dr. Ellis will insert a chin implant either through a hard-to-see crease under the chin or through the mouth to build up a small or receding chin. In the lip augmentation procedure, our plastic surgeon inserts the lip implants through small incisions that are typically made at the corners of the mouth. Each of these surgeries usually takes about one hour to complete. No matter which type of surgery you are interested in, we will make certain that your results are an enhancement to your features and natural looking. We are also dedicated to ensuring that your time with us is comfortable and pleasant.
What is the recovery period after facial implant surgery?
Recovery after facial implant surgery is typically fast and comfortable. For chin augmentation, recovery usually lasts about one week, during which time we recommend that you avoid work and strenuous activity. The sutures are removed after one week, and you can begin to resume your normal daily activities at this time.
The recovery period following lip augmentation is also approximately one week. To ensure that you heal quickly and comfortably, we encourage you to follow the instructions provided to you by our plastic surgeon and his team following your procedure. Once healed, you will be able to see the improved facial balance and enhanced overall appearance provided by your facial implants.
