Can A Female Get A Custom Jawline Implant?
Q: Dr. Eppley,I have done extensive research and have discovered the genius Dr Eppley! I am very impressed with his work and also the army of positive reviews online about him.
Upon research, I also discovered he is an expert in custom jaw/chin + forehead implants- both which I am very interested in. Would it be possible for Dr Eppley to find a way to enlarge and round my forehead with a custom implant?
I have been getting filler in my chin and jaw for the last few years and have LOVED IT. Now I am looking for a more permanent solution with a possible custom jaw wrap if appropriate.
A: Thank you for your inquiry, sending your pictures and detailing your surgical history and goals. From a jaw augmentation standpoint you are correct in that a custom wrap around implant would be the ideal way to go. For females these are often more ‘petite’ type designs as one would imagine. The use of 4ccs of soft tissue filler is a good guide which translates to about 50% more volume when it is added down at the bone level and not into the soft tissue.
