Facial Implants Q&A

What are facial implants?

Facial implant procedures involve placing medical-grade synthetic materials — like silicone — into targeted areas. These small implants replace lost volume and add contours to areas that may seem sunken or flat. Implants feel soft and cushioning, so your results look and feel natural. 

In most cases, facial implants go into your chin, cheeks, or jaw, or a combination of these areas. They may be ideal solutions for you if dermal fillers haven’t provided you with the results you want or if you have more dramatic volume loss.

What are the benefits of facial implants?

When you meet with Dr. Folk at Park Avenue Facial Plastic Surgery, he talks with you about what you’d like to achieve. Dr. Folk also takes measurements and pictures to help you determine which types and sizes of implants may benefit you the most. Your customized facial implant procedure can:

  • Contour your cheeks
  • Add more plumpness
  • Define your jawline 
  • Enhance your chin


By balancing these features, you should find that your face is more symmetrical and harmonious. Getting facial implants involves making very small incisions that leave little-to-no scarring behind, so you can focus on your enhanced facial features. Dr. Folk ensures you achieve the results you want.  

How long do facial implants last?

One of the many reasons facial implant procedures from Park Avenue Facial Plastic Surgery are so in-demand is because results are almost immediate. Although initial swelling and bruising are common, these side effects fade within a few weeks, and you experience your optimal results within several months of surgery.

Most types of implants that Dr. Folk offers are designed to last a lifetime. Of course, you’re going to continue to age and surrounding structures — including the cushioning layer of fat — may start to break down. 

Dr. Folk can perform alternative facial procedures, including surgical and nonsurgical (like dermal fillers), to help you continue experiencing the optimal results you deserve.
