 How is Jaw Implant Defined?

 Jaw implant is an operation that usually lasts for only about 2 hours. Patient undergoing this type of operation is put under general anaesthetic. Incision is a part of Jaw implant where it is usually made on both sides of the lips. These incisions would then be stitched through the use of dissolvable stitches. Once incisions are successfully done, implants made of silicone would then be placed where the former was created. 

Deciding to go on a jaw implant needs consultation with the probable surgeon. This is to make sure that proper assessment would be done prior to having the operation. There are cases when jaw implant is not necessary and that other types of implant could work best with the patient’s condition. 

 Jaw implant is usually for those who have good health state. However, those who have been taking acne drug Accutane for the last six months could not qualify for this procedure. This is to ensure that there would be no keloid scars or excessive bone growth that may occur after the operation. More so, those who are suffering from bone disorders are as well not qualified to undergo this type of operation. 

 How is Jaw Implant Procedure Done?

 

As with other operations or cosmetic procedures, a patient undergoing jaw implant must be realistic enough with expecting results from this type of implant. 

 

With jaw implant, incisions are normally done internal and are made either inside the mouth or at the side of the lower lip. For a more desirable result of the operation or for better contour, the implant is placed directly at the jawbone. There is an inclusion of dissolvable sutures that has the ability to be on the same place while it closes the incision. 

 

After undergoing with jaw implant, you can feel that your jaw seems to be swollen, firm, and is slightly bruised. However, once your tissue softens up, swelling would then subside. This is just a normal reaction of your body being repaired. 

 

This operational procedure comes with some risks such as the possibility of having hematoma, seroma, numbness, hyperpigmentation, and implant shifting. If the last risk happens, second operation would then be needed to correct it. Aside from the mentioned, there are still other risks of jaw implant including the following:

• asymmetry

• bone breakdown or loss

• capsular contracture

 

Along with the risks are possible side effects of jaw implant. Patient is prone to having temporary bruising, swelling, and numbness.

 

How one Recovers from Jaw Implant?

 

There is a possibility of one to experience restricted chewing and discomfort with smiling and talking in the first few weeks after the operation was done. If this happens, there must be an open communication to take place between the patient and the surgeon. 

 

Proper dental and oral hygiene is also needed for faster recovery. For about one week, you can return to work but avoid the performance of strenuous activities. This is recommended for 6-8 weeks.
