How and Where Is Treatment Done?
We are located in the Greater Philadelphia 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.
- 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.
Usually, Dr. Hove uses cheek augmentation in one of two circumstances:
- When a patient seeks to correct lower eyelid “bags,” but in fact, the cheekbones are just weak or recessed.
- 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.
