Are Custom infraorbital-Malar Implants The Right Choice For My Face?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I have been researching for a long regarding the application of custom implants and the techniques proposed by many were undertook a ‘one suits all’ outlook which for me is the hallmark between an average and leading figure in his field. The attention to detail and to attending each case differently is what yields a high probability of results that achieve the correct look for both the surgeon and the patient. The technique/s, implant design and photos illustrated below in the link below are what I had in mind for years and upon seeing & this reading the link, I can honestly I feel like this long and eternal stretch of a search is finally over.
A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your picture. I would agree that the IOM (infraorbital-malar) implant concept is appropriate for what appears to be your aesthetic facial needs. (see attached) The basic footprint of the implant design, while changing somewhat with each patient, what really varies is the various thicknesses/topography of the implant design amongst each patient.
