When it comes to facial cosmetic treatments, patients have a lot of options at their disposal – so many that it can be difficult to choose the best option. Do you go with a surgical option or a non-invasive option? In this article, we are going to discuss the similarities and differences between facial implants and facial fillers. We’ll also talk about who is a good candidate for each treatment.

Facial Fillers

Facial fillers are injectable solutions that work to rejuvenate the skin, reduce wrinkles, and offer a more youthful appearance. These fillers can help get rid of wrinkles and fine lines, tighten skin, and add volume to the face that has been lost.

The greatest benefit of facial fillers is that the procedure is non-invasive.

Facial Implants

Facial implants are synthetic, biocompatible materials that are surgically inserted into the face, lips, chin, or cheeks to change the overall shape and symmetry of the face. This procedure can be used to correct asymmetry, loss of volume in the facial features, or malformations that result from injury.

The biggest difference between facial fillers and facial implants is longevity. Facial fillers are a short-term treatment option – the effects wear off over the course of several months. Facial implants offer a much longer-term cosmetic solution.
