Facial Implants in Newport Beach, California

Facial implants can improve your appearance by refining facial contours and promoting symmetry. At Pacifica Cosmetic Surgery Center in Newport Beach, CA, we understand that every individual’s facial structure is unique, and sometimes, subtle changes can make a big difference.


Our jaw and chin implants are a way to enhance your facial profile for a more defined look. Dr. Hendricks specializes in creating natural-looking results that complement your existing features. These types of implants can help in achieving a more pronounced jawline and a balanced chin, contributing to facial proportion and balance.

What Are Facial Implants? 

This type of facial plastic surgery includes the use of facial implants to enhance and define the structure of the face. These implants are specifically designed to improve the proportion and balance of facial features, contributing to a more symmetrical and harmonious appearance. They can be placed in various areas, such as the chin or jaw to address individual concerns or to enhance overall facial aesthetics. Unlike temporary solutions, facial implants offer lasting changes and can be an integral part of reconstructive or cosmetic enhancement strategies.

What Types of Facial Implants Do We Offer? 

Jaw Implants

Jaw implants are a facial plastic surgery method that enhances the lower facial structure. These implants are customized to fit along the jawline. They are particularly beneficial for individuals looking to balance their facial proportions or to strengthen a receding or weak jawline. By integrating jaw implants, patients can achieve a more pronounced and aesthetically pleasing jaw, which still aligns seamlessly with their natural facial contours.

Chin Implants

Chin implants are a type of facial enhancement that offers a solution for those seeking to alter the profile of their lower face. These implants create a more proportionate and balanced appearance, especially in cases where the chin may appear underdeveloped or recessed. By carefully selecting and placing the right size and shape of implant, the chin can become a harmonious element of the facial structure, complementing other features and improving overall facial symmetry.

What Are the Benefits of Facial Implants? 

  • Enhanced Facial Contours: The structure of your face gains definition and refinement with the strategic placement of facial implants. This enhancement not only brings out the best in your features but also contributes to a more youthful and dynamic appearance.
  • Improved Facial Symmetry: Facial symmetry surgery can address and correct imbalances, leading to a more aligned and harmonious face.
  • Low Maintenance Results: Once healed, the enhancements made through facial plastic surgery are designed to last without the need for frequent touch-ups. This benefit allows individuals to enjoy their new look with minimal upkeep.
  • Restoration of Facial Contours After Injury: Facial implants can be critical in restoring the original contours of your face following an injury. This process not only aids in physical reconstruction but also assists in the psychological recovery journey.
  • Support for Overlying Skin: As we age, changes like chin dimples or a sagging jawline can become more pronounced. Facial implants offer support to the overlying skin, smoothing out imperfections and contributing to a firmer, more youthful appearance.
  • Improvement in Jaw Function: Adjustments made during facial symmetry surgery can sometimes improve the functionality of the jaw, aiding in better alignment, which may enhance chewing and speaking capabilities.
  • Minimal Scarring: Techniques used in implant placement are designed to minimize visible scarring, allowing the enhancements to appear as natural as possible. This benefit ensures that the focus remains on the improved aesthetic and not on the procedure itself.

Frequently Asked Questions About Facial Plastic Surgery

What Can I Expect From My Facial Implant Surgery?

During your facial plastic surgery, expect the procedure to last around two hours under general anesthesia. Small incisions are made, typically in discreet locations, to place the custom-sized implant. This is then securely fixed to enhance the desired area, followed by closing the incisions with a few stitches. The approach is meticulous, aiming for precision and harmony with your natural facial features.

To prepare for facial implant surgery, it’s vital to maintain your body’s health. This includes staying hydrated and following a nutritious diet. Additionally, you should cease smoking and limit alcohol consumption as these can affect your surgery’s success and recovery process. A well-prepared body can lead to a smoother procedure and recovery.

After facial implant surgery, initial healing typically spans a couple of weeks. During this time, rest is crucial; adhere to eating soft foods and avoid smoking and alcohol to foster optimal healing. Regular follow-up appointments are essential to monitor your progress and ensure a smooth recovery process.

The improvements from your facial implants are designed to last potentially for the rest of your life. However, individual results can vary based on factors like lifestyle, age, and genetics. Regular check-ups and a healthy lifestyle contribute to the longevity of your results.
