Alloplastic Augmentation of the Face


Improves the size and appearance of different areas in the face by implanting a pre-shaped three dimensional object in solid material, resulting in a more harmonious appearance. There are different types of material used to achieve this contour change like silicone, medpore etc. There are also different shapes of implants according to the area to be enhanced (chin, jaw, nose and cheeks).most of the time procedure will be done from inside-intraorally/intranasally or external skin approach [rare]


Approximately one and a half hours.


General anesthesia.


This is an outpatient procedure.

Possible Side Effects:

Temporary discomfort and swelling, mild bruising.


The implant may need to be removed and/or replaced to treat problems including: implant rupture, infection and implant misplacement. Implant rejection is a risk but is extremely rare.


The patient can return to work and normal activities within in few days. Bruising and swelling should have disappeared after several weeks. In view of implants follow-up will be required at least once in 2 years.


The outcome varies from patient to patient, but results are essentially permanent. The overall effect is an enhancement of the deficient contours of the face with an improved appearance.
