Can I Get A Custom Wraparound Jawline Implant If I Live In The UK?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in surgery for a full custom wrap around jaw/chin implant. The desired outcome is to augment the chin both horizontally (widen) and vertically (elongate) whilst creating a more ‘square’ shape. The desired outcome is also to widen and create definition in the
lower mandible border and vertical elongation of the mandibular angles – again to create a more ‘square’ shape. I also have some asymmetry in the chin/jaw which I would be looking to improve with the implant.
I am based in the UK and willing to travel internationally for surgery. Is this something which can be accommodated? Are my desired outcomes something that could be achieved via a custom wrap around jaw/chin implant?
A: Thank you for your inquiry and detailing your facial reshaping objectives. It is fair to say that only a custom wrap around jawline implant can accomplish the complex 3D changes in the shape of the lower jaw. I will have need to get some pictures of your face to do some computer imaging to determine the exact magnitude of these jawline changes. I have many international patients so your request is a common one in my practice.
