Facial Implants in Sugar Land, TX

Residents of Sugar Land, Texas, and Houston, Texas who want to improve their appearance with Facial Implants rely on the high quality care of Dr. David Stapenhorst of Signature Plastic Surgery. Dr. Stapenhorst recommends Facial Implants to his patients who want to improve the balance and symmetry of their faces. The most common types of Facial Implants include chin implants, cheek implants and jaw line implants. Implants help add contours and attractive angles to the face, enhancing the natural features of the face. Facial Implants are specialized, enclosed forms made of synthetic materials. These materials ensure that the improvements made with Facial Implants are long-lasting.

What happens during the Facial Implants procedure by Dr. David Stapenhorst?

Dr. Stapenhorst performs the Facial Implant procedure using a general anesthetic. The incision sites vary depending on the type of implant, but in all cases the incisions are placed so that they are well hidden after healing. For chin implants, the incision may be made inside the mouth (where the lower lip intersects with the gums) or under the chin. The incisions for Facial Implants placed along the jaw line are made in the back of the mouth where the cheek and gum line meet. Typically, incisions for cheek implants are placed inside the mouth.

When can normal activities resume after Facial Implants procedure?

The recovery for Facial Implants varies depending on the type and placement of the implant. In general, patients who receive Facial Implants should rest at home for several days after the procedure. During the healing process, the patient must protect the surgical site and implant from injury. Sports should be avoided until the surgical site is fully healed.

Is there any pain associated with the Facial Implants procedure?

Dr. Stapenhorst advises his patients that they will experience pain, mild swelling and bruising after their Facial Implant procedure. Dr. Stapenhorst may prescribe pain medications to help the patient remain comfortable during the healing process.

opportunity, and I know that I will look back fondly on the past 14 years.
