Facial Restoration Resources
Re-evaluating the Delivery of Healthcare
Facial implants are a safe, effective procedure used to augment certain areas of the face or restore volume lost as a result of aging or weight loss. During this procedure, a soft implant is placed under the skin to enhance the cheeks, chin, jaw or other area of the face.
Facelifts, technically known as rhytidectomies (literally, “removal of wrinkles”), rejuvenate the mid- to lower face and neck. Facelifts are most effective for patients who want to correct symptoms such as midface sagging, deep creases under the eyes, nose and mouth, sagging areas of fat, and more.
One in every 200 babies born will require specialized care for congenital conditions like cleft lip or palate. Others children may need surgery to correct craniofacial deformities resulting from congenital disorders, traumatic injury, or disease.
Rhinoplasty may be performed for functional rather than cosmetic reasons as well. Combining nose reshaping with septoplasty or endoscopic sinus surgery can effectively treat certain breathing problems, such as those caused by a deviated septum.
