Jaw implant surgery involves the placement of a silicone implant to augment the size, shape, and projection of the jawline. Typically performed under general anesthesia, this procedure generally takes 1-2 hours.
The procedure involves incisions, typically positioned inside the mouth along the lower gum line or in the natural crease beneath the jaw. The precise placement and length of these incisions are tailored to your desired outcome, as well as the implant’s size and placement.
Once the incisions are made, a pocket is formed in the tissue above the jawbone to accommodate the implant. The implant’s selection is a careful and deliberate process, considering your desired results and facial characteristics.
Dr. Ambay specifically works with silicone implant material due to its longevity, and considers it as semi-permanent in that you can keep it for life if you like it, and should, at any stage you want to remove it, it is a quick 30 minute procedure under local anesthesia. Also, unlike porus implant material that impregnate into bone overtime, silicone is solid and non-reactive.
Upon preparing the custom jaw implant, it is carefully and precisely inserted and positioned to achieve the intended projection and symmetry. The incisions are then closed with sutures or glue, and the area is dressed to facilitate healing.
If you’re unhappy with the appearance of your jawline or your jaw is not in proportion to your overall profile, you may be an excellent candidate for jaw implant surgery. Other factors to consider include:
The journey to recovery post-jaw augmentation is typically straightforward and quick. Following the procedure, anticipate mild swelling, bruising, and slight discomfort around the jaw and lower face. Pain management medication and cold compresses can alleviate any discomfort. Strictly adhering to Dr. Ambay’s post-operative instructions, including dietary adjustments and meticulous incision care, is crucial to effective healing.
Within one to two weeks, you should be able to resume your routine, excluding strenuous activities for several weeks to ensure optimal healing. It’s important to avoid activities that could strain or impact the jaw area during this recovery period.
To ensure optimal healing, it is important to attend regular follow-up appointments with Dr. Ambay at our Wesley Chapel office to monitor your healing progress and ensure the implant is settling as intended.
