Can I Get My Whole Face Done With Custom Implants?
Q: Dr. Eppley, Hey there! I was wondering if you could run me through the implant options. Could I get my whole face done? And is there a way you can make the proportions more manly and attractive? Is there anyways you can project my midface and make it look shorter/ more in proportion?
A: Thank you for your inquiry. There are implant options for every part of the face. I would refer to this website to review many of those options. (www.eppleycustomfacialimplants.com) The most common options fo me are custom jawline, infraorbital-malar/midface and brow bone implants.
How any of these changes would look on your face would require computer imaging of which pictures are needed to do so.
While the midface can be projected, there is only one limited procedure (subnasal lip lift) that can create some vertical midface shortening. But there are no procedures that can create a midface shortening effect from a structural standpoint unless one has a gummy smile in which a LeFort I impaction can be done.
