Can Head Widening and Jaw Widening Be Done At The Same Time?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I was wondering if it was possible to widen or enlarge my head, it is small. That along with a jawline augmentation. Is it possible to do simultaneously. How much would that cost?
Also are there any long term side effects of placing implant on the skull? Such as headaches, or increased chances of other complications?
A: In answer to your head widening and jaw widening questions:
1) It is possible to concurrently widen your head (temporal augmentation) at the same time as widening of your lower face.(jawline augmentation)
2) Both head and jaw widening will require custom implants to do so.
3) I have never had a patient who has developed any problems with headaches after any form of skull augmentation. This is an extracranial procedure that has no effect on the brain.
