Full Face Lift


A variety of facial implants are available for improving and enhancing facing appearances. Implants used in the forehead help negate the anti-aging effect caused by gravity. They work as hangers, helping lift the forehead to maintain a youthful appearance of the upper face. Some of these implants are designed to help lift the cheek and the mid-face. These implants are inserted under hair covered scalp.

Mid-facial implants are also used to augment the cheek to provide fullness to the mid-face. These implants can be inserted through the mouth or behind the hair line to avoid unsightly scars. In addition, some surgeon will place these through the eyelid.

Nasal implants are used to augment the tip of the nose or the bridge of the nose. Some nasal implants are specifically designed for Asians, who do not have prominent noses yet do not want very notable changes of their appearances after surgery.

Jaw implants and chin implants help improve lower face contours. These implants can also be inserted through the mouth to avoid visible scars.

Implants are made from various materials. Most commonly they are made of solid silicone and porous polyethylene, a solid substance that has pores to allow in-growth of one’s own tissue.

You may ask your eye and facial plastic surgeon about the advantages and disadvantages of these implants and the various techniques used to insert them.

"It was my first time getting Botox and fillers. I was a little nervous at first considering I really don't care too much for needles but I was surprised at how relaxed I was during it all. It went so well and there wasn't any pain like I had expected. Doctor is compassionate and explains things well. Doesn't rush you. I trust his opinion. Excellent surgeon." Maribel T.
"I went to Dr. David Freilich for excision of two approximately one-centimeter benign tumors: one near my eyebrow and one on my forehead. Lucky me! I have to say he is an amazing surgeon. He is very adept at surgery around the eyes and face. He is great at minimizing scars. He specializes in Ophthalmology and reconstructive surgery around the eyes. I will continue to see him in the future for eye exams. I would highly recommend him for any of the services that he offers." Robert G.
"... this is where a testimonial will go. A good source of testimonials is phone conversations, reviews on other sites and emails or mail received. Best reviews and testimonials have a name and are specific..." Howard K.
