At Verso Surgery centre in Toronto, facial implants represent an effective and popular solution for reshaping and enhancing facial features.
What are facial implants made of?
Implants are typically created from a few different materials. The most common are solid silicone or porous polyethylene. Medical-grade silicone is inert and safe for use in a variety of applications including cochlear implants and permanent shunts placed in the body. The polyethylene is porous to allow the body’s tissues to mesh with it and fuse it in place. They each serve different purposes and facial areas very well.
What can facial implants do for your appearance?
Mid-facial implants are placed in the cheek area and can be customized to sit toward the centre, smoothing away nasolabial (laugh) lines, or under the apples of the cheeks. Cheekbone enhancement is a common request due to fashion trends and the way that prominent cheekbones dramatically restructure a face. These are placed further laterally and higher in the cheek area to enhance the existing bone and create a more sculptural look.
The fat pads and musculature in a person’s face will naturally diminish as they age. Everyone experiences this a bit differently, but for many people, there is a seemingly sudden decrease in cheek fat and midface fullness which occurs between the mid 30’s-mid 40’s. The decrease in size and volume in one feature has the unwanted effect of making other features appear larger or out of balance.
A person whose naturally youthful cheeks have flattened, may find their lower face appears heavier or their nose, gradually larger. Your expert facial plastic surgeon knows how to use meticulously customized midface implants to permanently restore your facial balance, youthfulness, and harmony of features. We also offer facial fat transfer procedures which utilize the body’s own fat stem cells to fill sunken areas. Ask Dr. Kolenda which option will help you reach your goals.

Jaw Angle Implants:
The jaw, just like the anterior chin, can play a key role in the facial appearance. Typically requested by men, but also some women, the narrowing of a lower face or undefined jawline can get a complete makeover with simple implants. One’s neck may appear smoother and the skin tighter, features more angular and chiseled, and nose, cheeks, and upper face adequately balanced with a stronger jaw.
Our facial cosmetic surgeons pride themselves on the careful consideration and adjustment of each person’s unique face for the improvements and enhancements they want. Understanding well not only ethnically harmonious characteristics but the importance of variation between male and female proportions helps them to create adjustments that suit each person perfectly. Facial implants in Toronto are not one size fits all by any means, and should never appear visible or obvious.
