More and more often, men and woman alike are choosing facial implants as a way to achieve a more defined and attractive appearance. From a subtle adjustment to a dramatic transformation, those who are dissatisfied with the contours or asymmetry of their face can experience a wide range of pleasing results with facial implants.
Chin augmentation can be a highly effective procedure for improving your profile or making your nose less pronounced. Cheek augmentation has grown in popularity over the last 10 years and is used to create a smoother contour for your cheeks by placing an artificial implant over your cheek bone. Jaw implants can help correct facial asymmetry or simply help you achieve a more aesthetically pleasing jaw line.
Whichever procedure you select, the results of facial implants are instant and long lasting. The size and shape of the facial implants are carefully chosen through a prior cosmetic surgery consultation with Dr. Rai to ensure the best size and shape for you.
Over time the effects of sun exposure, years of facial muscle movement (smiling and squinting) and gravity all begin to show on our faces. This is because the underlying tissue that keeps our faces looking youthful begins to break down and the emergence of frown lines, crow’s feet and other facial creases is the result.
Botox is a filler that is injected into the lines and creases on your face to temporarily recapture a smoother and more youthful appearance and has been safely used since the early 1990s with no serious side effects. This pleasing result is achieved by injecting Botox beneath the skin to plump up creases and even add fullness to lips and cheeks.
Sometimes working out, eating healthy and taking good care of yourself just isn’t enough to help you look as good as you feel. Botox can help. Botox New Westminster patients appreciate that this procedure takes just minutes with no recover time and the results can be truly exciting.

Hormonal changes, sun damage, environmental pollutants and aging can all impact the youthful appearance of your skin, leaving you wishing you could reverse the signs of aging. Juvederm can help.
Juvederm is an injectable gel made from a naturally occurring sugar found in your body called hyaluronic acid. Natural looking results are achieved by adding volume to the skin, which minimizes the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and thinning skin. Juvederm has also been shown to stimulate the production of collagen. It is safe for all skin tones and offers the additional benefits of no downtime and immediate results for most patients. Optimal results last for six months or longer!
Dr. Rai also offers the Soft Lift, which is an application that combines Juvederm and Botox to achieve a very pleasing lift of the cheek area, as well as a conservative brow lift. A more youthful appearance is achieved by minimizing sagging in the middle of the face with Juvederm, while reducing upper face lines and wrinkles with Botox. A Soft Lift provides a relatively simple and discreet reversal of the effects of aging on your skin with no down time and virtually no pain for an instantly refreshed look in a single treatment.
