About Facial Implants

Facial implants can be performed on three regions of the face. This facial cosmetic surgery can be carried out on the chin, cheeks and jaw. Implants are advised for patients who are looking to change and/or enhance their facial bone structure. Facial implants generally are less risky than orthognathic facial surgery.

Chin Implants:
Cosmetic Surgery

An important part of the facial profile is the chin. A strong chin can help individuals look and feel younger, healthier and more attractive. A weak chin has an immense effect on your other facial features, such as making your nose look larger and your lower lip seem droopier. A receding chin also affects your facial expression by conveying a "weak" look.

Cheek Implants:
Cosmetic Surgery

Hollow flat cheeks may be enhanced by fat injections. Flat cheeks may also be augmented by surgery. There are a number of surgical cheek implants, which can augment and enhance the cheek region. These implants can be very useful in improving facial shape.

What our patients have to say

I needed a nose job and chin implant and went to see Dr Zakhary for consult and surgery. Results look how I wanted, her staff is very helpful and polite. The experience was easy and painless. I recommend her
Dr. Zakhary and her crew were so nice and down to earth. In an area that’s usually pretty nerve racking for people, they do a good job making you feel welcome and comfortable. She’s super knowledgable with an amazing background in the field. I’d recommend her over anyone else.

Down here in Calgary, we don’t have as many cosmetic surgery offices as we’d like. Thankfully, I was able to find Kristina. She offers great service with a great smile and she made me feel much more comfortable in getting my surgery since I was still uncertain before. She made me more confident in my decision and the results have definitely paid off. Strongly recommend.

Dr.Zakhary is amazing and is my fairy godmother as she changed me and my life for the best. I was considerate of the clinic and doctors and did my own research before booking an appointment. I wanted to be sure that I would get what I wanted. Dr.Zakhary and her team made me feel very comfortable and reassured me that nothing would happen and it’s my decision to make. I liked that professional attitude and care and I like the result! Thank you, you are the best!

Dr Zakhary was great, she made me feel very comfortable and took the to explain everything very clearly. So many docs seem to be in such a hurry these days, she seems to have lots of time for me which was nice
My experience with Dr. Kristina and the whole staff of the clinics was really amazing. After talking to her about my medical issues I felt much better. She brought to me support and confidence that I needed. Dr. Kristina helped me to make an informative decision about my surgery and I am glad about it. My surgery went perfect, and Dr.Zakhary is worth recommending to everyone who looks for a plastic surgeon.

I was very nervous about having plastic surgery. When I called Dr.Zakhary's office for a consultation, the staff was very friendly and welcoming. They put my nerves at ease and made me feel like I was in the right place. After my surgery, I couldn't have been more pleased with the results. I would definitely recommend anyone who is considering plastic surgery to call Dr. Zakhary.
Alaina B
I spent a while looking for a good plastic surgeon in Edmonton and decided on Dr. Zakhary after an initial consultation. I was impressed with how at ease the staff made me feel, as I was nervous about the whole thing. I was really pleased with the end results too. Impressive.
Jeanette Simm
Dr.Zakhary is such a capable plastic surgeon. I did a lot of grunt work--research, prior to hiring her but it was the original consultation that sold me. She was professional, well put together and explained everything to me in minute-detail. After I left her clinic I felt organized and prepared for a surgery I was nervous about before. Her staff was amazing as well and even gave me 6-year old a colouring book while she waited with my sister. Great clinic, you can't go wrong here!
Lois R
Based on how well I was post-surgery, Dr. Zakhary is clearly a profoundly talented and highly skilled surgeon. I had heard many stories of recovery for the procedure and had expected such. However, my recovery was significantly less time and discomfort. As I am not a medical professional in any capacity, the fact that there was less swelling, pain and time needed off work than other colleagues whom underwent similar procedures, tells me that she is amazing. Highly recommended.
