Facial implants help provide balance to your facial features and increase your self-esteem by changing the face you were born with to one you desire. There are various implants on the market today, crafted from a variety of materials. A facial plant can help reshape a chin, create the appearance of a chiseled jawbone, enhance cheekbones or fix a crooked nose. If you are considering a facial implant you should also think about the risks. These implants can shift out of place and require a second surgery to correct. An infection can also occur, that requires your surgeon to temporarily remove your implant in order to treat it. Be sure you fully understand your procedure and the risks associated with it, before you proceed. At Core Plastic Surgery in Birmingham, Alabama, you will receive the best possible care and attention.
