Zygomatic implants are composed of materials such as silicone, titanium, biocompatible polyethene, and a material called PEEK which have safely been used in surgery for many years. They are permanent but can be replaced or removed if required.
Mr Juling Ong’s expertise as a facial reconstructive surgeon means he is highly skilled in producing a subtle improvement that achieves a more attractive appearance to the mid-face. Mr Juling Ong will carefully plan the procedure to adjust the cheek’s projection, shape and volume and will take into account your individual facial characteristics.
Mr Ong inserts the implants through incisions made on the inside of the mouth so there will be no visible scarring when healed. Implants are pre-formed or custom-made and will be carefully chosen to fit the underlying bony contours and the desired outcome. The implants are then secured to the underlying bone with small titanium screws.
The underlying bone can also be shaped and contoured in a zygomatic remodelling procedure.
