Bespoke 3D Custom Facial Implants

Top Custom Facial Implant Pioneer

Some patients desire a more proportional profile and desire to change the size, shape, or contour of their facial features. Custom facial implants can be a long-lasting and natural-looking solution.

Dr. Catherine Chang is a Beverly Hills facial plastic surgeon who specializes in custom facial implant procedures and is the co-author of renowned facial implant textbook “Atlas of Facial Implants” with Dr. Michael J. Yaremchuk. 

Dr. Catherine Chang is Quadruple Ivy-League educated and is a top Craniofacial specialist. She uses her education and advanced training to perform custom facial implants using the most advanced technology and modern techniques. Dr. Chang has an advanced understanding of how to treat the underlying causes of complex facial anatomy issues.

As a top Craniofacial aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgeon, Dr. Chang masterfully designs a fully customized, bespoke facial implant to provide harmony and balance to her patient’s face.  Using this type of CAD drawn implant can deliver a more sculpted jawline, defined cheekbones, a refined nose, and correct deep hollows in the temples and under the lower eyelids.

A Bespoke Approach

“Results So Natural, It Will Be Your Best Kept Secret™”

Dr. Chang recognizes that no two patients are the same; she creates a personalized treatment plan that will address your unique problem areas while creating her signature fresh, youthful rejuvenated look.

Instead of choosing from generic, stock implants, Dr. Chang’s customizable implants are carefully designed especially for you and crafted by the implant manufacturer to provide the most natural results. 

During your consultation, Dr. Chang will thoroughly examine the anatomy of your face and bone structure to determine the best implant design for your desired results. Her bespoke, custom-tailored techniques aim to provide the best result for each individual patient. 

The process

Dr. Chang produces live scan of your bone structure by taking a CT scan that is digitized into a CAD 3D design render. This scan shows Dr. Chang every minuscule groove and contour, and when it is transferred to a physical implant.

You are required to meet with Dr. Chang for a pre-operative consultation where she will go over her custom designs with you prior to surgery. The procedure is performed under general anesthesia as an outpatient procedure.

Customized implants are inserted through small incisions. Cheek, chin, jaw, and temple implants are placed through discreet incisions made on the inside of the mouth. 

“Surgery sans looking surgical”

CUSTOM FACIAL IMPLANTS VS. GENERIC FACIAL IMPLANTS

Unlike out-of-the-box implants, the benefits of custom facial implants include an individualized, tailored result, the ability to achieve perfect symmetry, and an exact fit. Facial bones are not perfectly smooth, so out-of-the-box generic implants are often not an exact fit due to bone irregularities, which can result in less-than-perfect results. Dr. Chang takes exact measurements and specifications to match each patient’s anatomy to achieve the right dimensions for facial symmetry with one-of-a-kind customized implants.

TYPES OF Custom FACIAL IMPLANTS

Facial implants enhance the shape and projection of the cheeks, chin, and jawline. Unlike using stock implants for facial augmentations, these CAD-drawn implants can be used to create the perfect amount of definition in the cheekbones, chin, and jawline for each patient’s unique anatomy. While these are the most popular placements for facial implants, since Dr. Chang creates custom-designed facial implants, he can meet a variety of aesthetic needs and goals.

CHEEK IMPLANTS

High cheekbones are a universal signifier of youth and beauty, but even if genetics did not deliver sculpted cheekbones to you, facial implants can add definition to the midface.

CHIN IMPLANTS

A recessed or “weak” chin can have a negative effect on facial harmony and proportions. A chin implant can add balance to the face.

JAW IMPLANTS

If you would like a more defined jawline, jaw implants can deliver a naturally sculpted look.

After many hours spent looking at pictures, studying surgeons' credentials, reading reviews and staring at my aging face, I chose Catherine Chang, MD for my facelift, neck lift, blepharoplasty and CO2 laser procedure. It was a leap of faith that came with great anxiety in the midst of a pandemic year. My first visit with Dr. Chang was unhurried and she took the time to explain the procedures she was recommending as well as the results that could be expected. Her confidence and understanding were reassuring. Dr. Chang is a skilled surgeon, talented and perceptive. She understood what I was looking for. State of the art results: Dr. Chang is an amazing young woman, a perfectionist.

Dr. Chang is AMAZING. I’d had incredibly severe breathing issues my whole life—I’m talking sinus headaches, blurry vision, absolutely *no* airflow through one side of my nose—all from an extremely deviated septum. On top of everything else, the septum issue created a huge bump in my nose that proved to be very problematic for my career as a performer. As a woman of color, finding a doctor who could improve my quality of life, adjust my profile, but simultaneously honor my heritage and my ethnicity was a terrifying thought. I wanted to solve my problem, but I wanted to come out looking like me. I was overwhelmed by the fear of not being heard—as I’d had many other experiences where my dignity as a patient was clearly not the priority.

Dr. Catherine Chang changed my life. At 43, I unfortunately had aged prematurely in my lower face and neck and was so unhappy with my changing appearance. I had met with a couple of other surgeons but was too scared to trust them with such a big surgery. Not only is Dr. Chang professionally incredible but she is also cool and sweet as can be and every office visit is a joy. I am so grateful I found Dr. Catherine Chang!

"Dr. Chang is absolutely amazing. I am beyond happy and thankful that I chose to have my procedure with her! Words can't describe how happy I am! My recovering was less than 3 days! Same day I was already on my feet! I only took pain medication for about a day. I recovered so fast, not a single issue. Now the best part is the results, the result is INCREDIBLE. Exactly what I wanted! Thank you Dr. Chang!!!"

"Dr. Catherine Chang is a masterful plastic surgeon! I cannot say enough about how happy I am with the results of my recent surgery! I have "cred" as they say because I'm in the business of medical aesthetics--a Registered Nurse in this field since the early 2000's. I have been extremely fortunate to work with legendary plastic surgeons in Beverly Hills. Thank you Dr. Chang for restoring this face and neck!"

"Dr. Cat Chang is amazing! I wish there were more than 5 stars I could give her. After years of contemplation, I went ahead and had the rhinoplasty (nose job) I have always wanted with Dr. Chang. I could not be more pleased with the results! I love my new profile, it is exactly what I hoped for!"

"Simply put, Dr. Chang is phenomenal on so many levels! It was such an easy decision to choose her to perform my breast implant replace and lift surgery. Apart from having a "rock star" academic resume, upon meeting her I was immediately impressed as she has a very caring demeanor, is personable, professional, compassionate, but most importantly, incredibly experienced and knowledgeable."
