Facial Implants in Melbourne or Sydney
Facial Implants are a popular cosmetic procedure with people who are looking to add more definition and character to their face particularly around the nose, chin and jaw.
Dr Richard Sackelariou is a leading facial plastic surgeon for Facial Implants in Melbourne and Sydney helping patients seeking a more confident, enhanced looking face. With over 20 years experience, he is a calm, caring and precise surgeon.
Generally, older patients combine Facial Implants with another facial surgery. For example: a chin implant can enhance the look of a Facelift or Rhinoplasty by strengthening the definition of your jawline.

Who can Benefit from Facial Implants?
Patients suffering from small, or weak, chins often feel their faces are unbalanced. Chin implants can create a stronger jawline in both men and women.
Whether from a small sports accident, a traumatic incident or natural deformities, nasal implants can correct your bumpy, wonky or crooked nose.
Those with a rounder face may find cheek implants useful in creating a higher cheekbone and better accentuating the cheeks and eyes, giving your face better strength of character.
Our Facial Implants
We offer three types of facial implants:
We can augment your chin with Medpor implants. Dr Richard Sackelariou and his team almost exclusively use Medpor implants for chins because they firmly fix to the underlying bone and make the implant virtually indistinguishable from your own bone. Chin implants are popular with men who want to achieve a stronger, more masculine look. While women often choose this type of treatment to balance out their facial features. We can also reshape your chin to make it smaller or larger by reshaping the bone.
To improve height and definition of the nasal bridge we can use nasal implants, because these implants can provide height to a nose that looks flat or sunken. We have found this procedure to be popular with Oriental patients who are looking to correct the flatness across the bridge or the nose or who want more definition in the main body of the nose.
Another popular Facial Implants procedure, cheek implants are placed over the cheekbone. More than other Facial Implants, cheek implants can produce either dramatic or subtle results, depending on the size of the implant. Many see high cheekbones as desirable and cheek implants can provide prominence and add strength and character to your face.
How Much are Facial Implants? – Costs And Prices
The cost of facial implant surgery can vary across Melbourne, Sydney and Australia. It depends entirely on the surgeon you choose, where you have your operation, the quality of your facial implant surgery and time in theatre.
Often websites that post the estimated cost of a facial implant surgery do NOT include all the related and necessary expenses. As a result, you may end up paying more than you expected.
Dr Sackelariou never recommends shopping for low-cost surgery as it is unlikely that an experienced FRACS specialist plastic surgeon will be performing the procedure. It is important to do your research before deciding on a surgeon for your chosen procedure.
Further, revision surgery is costly and is not guaranteed to fix the issue you experienced with your initial surgery if you choose to explore cheaper surgical options.
It is always important to pursue plastic surgery based on skill, not cost.
