Facial Implants for the chin, cheekbones or jawline can bring facial features into greater harmony, enhancing their definition & youthfulness.
Profilo° Surgical uses innovative Jaw Implant materials that function just like real bone. They look and feel natural, and integrate seamlessly with the structures of the face.
Jaw Surgery has great versatility in correcting jaw and facial aesthetics, but traditional techniques aren't suited to every situation. Customised Jaw Implants may be ideal if your aesthetic needs are more unique.
Jaw Implants are commonly used to correct a small or asymmetrical lower jaw. Jaw Implants can strengthen the definition of your jawline, or increase your jaw angle width to balance your face proportions.
Customised Implants offer superior performance to generic alternatives. They are designed to intimately fit the contours of your facial structures, with reduced surgical times and greater aesthetics.
Our process involves state-of-the-art 3D Imaging systems, which we use to digitally reconstruct your jaw & facial structures. This allows us to visualise in precise detail, the areas of your face you wish to address.
We design your Jaw Implants in the virtual world, allowing you to see how they enhance your facial appearance. With unlimited sizes and shapes, you have direct input into your treatment outcome.
Jaw Implants Procedure
Your first consultation with our specialist will give you the opportunity to outline your concerns to us in detail, where you feel improvements can be made, and what your ultimate goals are with treatment.
We will provide you with all of your options for achieving your goals, which may include Jaw Surgery procedures as alternatives or complements to customised Jaw Implants.
If you decide to proceed, we'll arrange for you to have medical CT scanning, which we use to digitally reconstruct your facial structures. With this we design your customised Jaw Implants in the virtual world.
These will demonstrate the changes that are possible to your jaw and facial structures, and will provide a digital simulation showing the transformation to your soft tissue profile.
Your Jaw Implant surgery will be performed in a private hospital setting under General Anaesthesia. This will be coordinated by our highly experienced and caring administrative staff.
Jaw Implant surgery is performed through small incisions made in the mouth. The soft tissue is gently lifted away from the bony structures underneath, creating a space for the Jaw Implants to be placed.
The Jaw Implants are secured in place with small titanium screws. Over the following months, your Jaw Implants will fuse to the underlying skeletal structures that support them.
