Facial Implants

Safely achieve the fullness you want and remove wrinkles and lines with a long-lasting solution. Facial implants can enhance your jaw line, chin, and cheeks. Methods used today can change your appearance immediately, giving you soft, natural-feeling results for years.


The cosmetic consultation with Dr. Oser is an important step in the process of considering aesthetic surgery. He and his staff are committed to helping you become well informed about the actual process of preparing for your face implants. Please feel free to ask any questions and let us know how we can help you throughout the process.

Other services may be recommended in combination with this service to be sure that you have an optimal surgical result.

Preparation Before your Procedure

Three weeks prior to and three weeks after your surgery, try to limit your alcohol and tobacco intake. Two weeks prior to and two weeks after your surgery, do not take medication that may thin your blood such as aspirin or Ibuprofen products.

The Day of Your Procedure 

Please refrain from wearing makeup, contact lenses, hairpins, jewelry, body lotion or perfume. Wear comfortable clothing. If you develop a cold, sore throat, fever or any symptoms of illness before your surgery, notify the office.

Please prepare to have a responsible adult available to provide transportation after your procedure and have arrangements made for any necessary assistance you may require for the following 24 hours. If you are a minor, a parent or guardian must accompany you.


Before your procedure, Dr. Oser will answer any questions that may have arisen since the initial consultation and you will have an opportunity to meet any additional staff members involved. Dr. Oser and his staff will do everything to make you feel as comfortable as possible and will be available to address any concerns that you may have.


Just as everyone is an individual, everyone recovers differently. Avoiding strenuous activity and sleeping on your back is recommended for a couple of weeks following surgery. Most patients are back to work within a couple of weeks depending on the complexity of the procedure.


While results may vary, facial implants can make a dramatic change in not only your appearance, but also your outlook on life. Many patients enjoy an increase in self-confidence and find a new enjoyment in full, more prominent facial features.

Dr. Oser may recommend complementary services to maximize your desired result. These may include a face lift, a brow lift, and eyelid surgery.
