Q: Dr. Eppley, I have a 9mm medpor chin implant placed last year from a submental approach which was not secured by the screws. One month after 1 surgery it shifted.

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m still torn on which midface surgery I should undergo.  I can’t tell if I have a recessed or average maxilla, but if that turns out to be the case, will your maxillary implants be able to create a protruding maxilla to the same extent as a lefort II or lefort III […]

Q: Dr. Eppley, I just had a few brief questions regarding facial implant surgery.

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am writing because I just got a vertical lengthening chin implant yesterday. I’ve always been so fond of the design and asked to get it. My surgeon, a board certified plastic surgeon had it done for me yesterday. He has a lot of experience with chin implants. He managed to get […]

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi I had a question about cutis vertices gyrata. (CVG) I have mild CVG. I see that you inject fat for its treatment. Is this fat from my on body then transfer to the ridges? If so I guess my question is if I sweat or lose weight doesn’t it shrink? Which […]

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am a younger male and am interested in perioral liposuction to create a more hollow accentuated jawline.

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have searched for someone to correct my chin ptosis for the past few years and seeing a slew of negative reviews about the few who specialize in correcting droopy chins  has been frustrating and cause for my apprehension.

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m a young male. My head is convex at the out direction near my ears. I’ve always been self conscious about the width of my head. If you injected Botox into the muscle would it affect the temple muscle on the side and shrink that. I have seen pictures of people getting […]
