Facial Implants

A weak jawline or a small, recessed chin can make your facial features seem out of balance. This could lead to low self-esteem.

Facial implants placed by Dr. Christopher Hove at his cosmetic surgery practice can enhance your look and restore your confidence.

Why is the Hove Center for Facial Plastic Surgery the top destination in Main Line, PA, for facial implants?

How and Where Is Treatment Done?

We are located in the Greater Main Line area community of Paoli, PA. At a glance, here's what you need to know about treatment:

  • Dr. Hove will insert your implant through a small, easily camouflaged incision.
  • Depending on the procedure, local anesthesia is all that is needed for your comfort. 
  • Many surgical procedures are performed at his state-of-the-art COVID-19 compliant practice.

Facial Implants Placed by Dr. Howe

Dr. Howe only uses high-quality implants made of stable FDA-approved material such as solid silicone or ePTFE, aka Gore-Tex®. These amazing materials feel just like part of your normal bone structure.

Chin Implants

  • A small or recessed chin can easily tip the facial balance toward the nose or upper face. Often this gives a perception that the nose is too large, when in fact, the nose is completely proportionate to the face, and the chin just needs “a little help.”
  • A chin implant can restore that harmony. Inserting a chin implant is straightforward, and can be performed quickly through a small incision under the chin or inside the lip. If done alone, this often requires just local anesthesia.
  • Dr. Hove will take measurements and use a custom mold for the best size and shape required for your anatomy. 
  • The procedure is completely reversible if you change your mind. The satisfaction rate with chin implants is very high and, to date, Dr. Hove has never removed a chin implant because a patient was dissatisfied with the result.

Cheek Implants

Usually, Dr. Hove uses cheek augmentation in one of two circumstances:

  1. When a patient seeks to correct lower eyelid “bags,” but in fact, the cheekbones are just weak or recessed.
  2. When a patient wants to restore lost cheek volume to bring back a youthful appearance to the midface.

  • Depending on your anatomy, the cheek implants can be inserted through an incision hidden in the lower eyelid or inside the upper lip. 
  • Like chin implants, Dr. Hove uses his artistic and surgical skills to custom-size the implants to fit your specific anatomy.
  • This procedure typically requires sedation or general anesthesia.
