Facial implant procedures explained

A facial implant procedure begins by the surgeon mapping out the intended surgical procedure by placing markings on the face; this is very helpful for understanding where the facial implants should be placed and consider what other factors may need addressed and to attain the best possible result. This step in the procedure also helps the surgeon distinguish the underlying structures and tissues that should be considered, attended to or sometimes avoided in that area. Next, the patient is provided a local anesthesia to numb the area. The surgeon will then make a small incision near the implant location and create a pocket on the facial tissue to allow insertion of the implant. The facial implant is then inserted using a sterilized clamp, and the incision is closed. Although the procedure appears a relatively simple process, it still requires a strong knowledge of the art and science behind facial reconstruction, of which you can definitively count on at Boston Plastic Surgery with Dr. Y.
