Facial Implants

Cosmetic surgical procedures are performed in our world class ambulatory surgery center, CAREOS, which is dedicated to eyelid, orbital and facial surgery. The facility is located in the office of our parent organization, Texas Oculoplastics Consultants (TOC). TOC’s main office and CAREOS are located on the first floor of Austin Medical Plaza adjacent to the TOC Medical Spa.

Bone structure plays a critical role in facial attractiveness. The TOC surgical team has advanced training in facial construction and the desirable proportions of facial structures. Our surgeons’ keen understanding of the proper balance of eyes, nose, jaw, cheekbones, and face shape consistently yields extraordinarily natural and aesthetically pleasing results.

Implants can contour and build up weak areas of the face, improving symmetry and correcting undesirable facial proportions. Facial imbalances and irregularities are most often a matter of genetics, but may result from a congenital defect or even trauma or disease.

Changes to appearance can range from dramatic to subtle, depending on a patient’s condition and goals. The most common facial implants include chin implants (genioplasty) and cheek implants (malar augmentation).

Facial implant surgery is often performed along with other aesthetic procedures such as a facelift, rhinoplasty, eyelid lift, endo-brow lift, laser facial resurfacing, or facial fat transfer. Implant surgeries are typically performed under local or IV sedation anesthesia. They result in mild postoperative discomfort and swelling that may last few weeks. Risks of the procedure are rare, but can include asymmetry, postoperative infection, and, very rarely, nerve injury.

The surgeons of TOC are experts in facial implant surgery. They are often asked to lecture fellow surgeons worldwide on topics including facial implants. The TOC surgical team is committed to extraordinary results for every patient and dedicated to the uncompromising care required to achieve them. As a our patient you or your loved one will receive evaluation and treatment by one of our elite oculoplastic surgeons, each with advanced training in implant procedures.

Most procedures may be performed at TOC’s outpatient surgical center, the Center for Aesthetic and Reconstructive Eyelid and Oculoplastic Surgery (CAREOS). Outpatient (ambulatory) surgery helps to reduce hospital costs, personal expense, and length of stay for patients needing surgery. CAREOS is one of the only ambulatory surgical centers in Central Texas dedicated solely to oculoplastic and laser aesthetic surgery. This means we are highly efficient in providing the specific care you need. For those times when surgery is best performed at a hospital, TOC physicians have surgical privileges at all Austin-area hospitals.

We understand that any patient may feel anxious or apprehensive about treatment. Our goal is to help you or your loved one feel at ease. We engage each patient with sensitivity and respect for his or her individual needs.
