Can I Order Custom Facial Implants In Advance And Then Have Surgery Much Later?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m looking for several implants for my future surgeries and was wondering if you would be able to help me. I have some questions.
Can I order cust9m facial implants in advance for when I am able to have the surgery? Or would it be best for them to go directly to the surgeon.
How much would it cost me for the following masculine implants:
Square Chin Implant
Jawline Implant (Squaring the Jaw)
Brow Ridge Implant (to make it more prominent)
A: In answer to your facial implants questions:
1) Either standard or custom facial implants are shipped to the surgeon, not the patient.
2) Both jawline and brow bone implants are custom designed and made off of a 3D CT scan of the patient.
3) Custom implants can be designed and manufactured (without having a surgery date or paying the fees to install them. (which I think is the question you are asking) You have to pay, of course, the design and manufacturing costs to make them. This is not an uncommon request.
