Facial Implants at Apollo Hospitals, Karnataka
Before the Procedure
The consultation with the plastic surgeon before facial implant surgery is crucial to ensure the patient’s safety and satisfaction with the results. The surgeon may use computer imaging to show the patient what their face may look like after the procedure, giving them a better idea of what to expect. During this consultation, the patient should also be honest about their medical history, current medications, and any allergies they may have. This information helps the surgeon make informed decisions about the surgical approach and anaesthesia. In some cases, the surgeon may recommend alternative procedures, such as injectables or fillers, to achieve the desired results without surgery.
During the Procedure
During the facial implant surgery at Apollo Hospital, Karnataka, the plastic surgeon will use advanced surgical techniques to ensure the best possible outcome. The surgery is usually performed under general anaesthesia, and the duration of the procedure will depend on the extent of the surgery. During the surgery, the surgeon will carefully create the incisions and place the implant in the precise location to achieve the desired result. The surgeon will also take care to minimize scarring and ensure a natural-looking appearance. Patients can be assured that our experienced and skilled plastic surgeons use the latest technology and techniques to ensure their safety and satisfaction.
After the Procedure
During the recovery period, it is important to take good care of the incision sites and follow the surgeon’s instructions for cleaning and changing dressings. Patients may also be advised to avoid certain foods and activities that could potentially interfere with the healing process. It is essential to attend follow-up appointments with the surgeon to monitor the healing process and ensure that there are no complications.

Recovery after the surgery
During the recovery period, patients can expect some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the treated area. To alleviate these symptoms, the surgeon may prescribe pain medication and recommend the use of cold compresses. To promote optimal healing, patients must follow their surgeon’s post-operative instructions thoroughly. This may include wearing compression garments, avoiding certain foods and medications, and attending follow-up appointments to monitor progress. Strenuous physical activity should be avoided for several weeks following surgery to allow the body time to heal. Patients should also keep the surgical site clean and dry to minimize the risk of infection.
