Can A Complete Makeover Be Done From The Skull Down To The Jaws?
Q: Dr. Eppley, Can I have a full facial surgery at the same time starting from the skull then eyes,nose and ears? I am interested in having my forehead and brow area built up but then I also want a nose job to get rid of my hump and fat tip as well as cheek and chin inplants with facial liposuction, all at the same time. Is this possible?
A: Yes you can. It is not rare to do more complete craniomaxillofacial skeletal remodeling from the skull down to the jawline. In addition to skull and forehead procedures, often facial implants are used in conjunction with open rhinoplasties. These more complete aesthetic craniofacial procedures can take 6 to 8 hours to perform, requiring a patient to be in good health,, relatively young, and ready to sustain a significant recovery from a facial swelling standpoint. These composite procedures are often done for major facial reshaping, facial feminization surgeries, and extensive male masculinization makeovers.
