Can I Get the High Cheekbone Look with Custom Cheek Implants after Double Jaw Surgery?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I had already double jaw surgery which improved my jawline as well as my chin. I really look good in the side profile. However, my mid face is not sharp. I would like to have model looks i.e., high cheek bones. Is it possible to achieve the look in my face, considering my face is chubby not slim. If cheek implants can be done in my case, can you let me know the cost?
A: Thank you for your inquiry. There are many different types of cheek implants but for the ‘high cheekbone’ look that requires a true custom cheek implants design t that wraps around from under the eye all the way back along the zygomatic arch. That would help create the distinct line of the midface that would be compatible with that of your jawline. If you combine that with buccal lipectomies you would definitely help create a less chubby looking face. I will have my assistant Camille pass along the cost of such surgery to you on Monday.
