Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in facial reshaping surgery. Can I get a longer and slimmer face with strong jawline and cheekbone through the facial reshaping procedures? If no, what type of procedure will I need and how much will the total cost be . I feel like I can trust Dr Eppley for these life changing procedures.
A: In looking at your pictures, I can recommend several facial reshaping procedures that would make your face longer and slimmer. These procedures include vertical chin lengthening (vertical lengthening chin implant vs. open sliding genioplasty), cheek implants, buccal lipectomies and perioral mound liposuction. The effect of these procedures is created because multiple hard and soft tissue changes are occurring in different dimensions. When all are combined the effect of increased vertical facial height (real facial change) and decreased facial width (more of a visual facial) occurs.
