Can An Upper Blepharoplasty and Browlift Be Combined with a Jaw Implant?
Q: Dr. Eppley, Can I combine jaw surgery with upper eyelid and endotine brow lift? That would make it much easier for me since I was planning on doing an eyelid surgery due to drooping of eyelids.
So here’s a couple of questions I have:
1-upper eyelid with endotine brow lift. An eye doctor told me he would lift my eyebrows from the incision made in the eyelid.
2- one question I have about my jaw implant is how will Dr. Eppley determine the size of my chin implant if the scan doesn’t show my actual chin since it’s covered my current implant?
A: In answer to your questions:
1) An upper blepharopasty and endotine brow lift can be done at the same time as the R/R custom jawline implant.
2) By definition an endotine browlift uses the upper eyelid incision to place the device onto which the brow is lifted onto and attached. While this is a valid brow lift technique and it works best in men, it only affects the outer half of the eyebrows and its effect is modest in the amount of lift achieved…which is consistent with the type of browlift most men want done…not too much and no superior incisional scars.
3) What we care about is the size of your current implant as that tells me how much more dimensional changes you need/desire. For the actual design the existing implant is digitally removed so the bone is fully seen.
