Can Paranasal Implants Help Create The Male Model Look?
Q: Dr. Eppley, All right, doctor, congratulations on honesty. In fact, I thought I had a double chin and I needed liposuction under my chin, but now I understand, thanks to you , what I really need.
Forgive me, if I may seem inconvenient with questions, but I am trying to figure out what to do with you , just , we are all free from this quarantine again.
I ask you, in fact, if I need paranasal implants to create that ‘male model effect’ or maybe in that area , is better for me , use something else ?
-Finally , what do you think of implants for my eyebrow crest / brow ridge and temples ?
I noticed and read on your blog, that a prominent brow crest/brow ridge is very masculine and is an attractive feature and for my temples I wouldn’t really know , what would be better to do.
For the paranasals, I’m afraid, of nerve damage or that my nose is raised exposing too much of my nostrils and especially that my smile can change , looking fake .
For the eyebrow crest/brow ridge and temples , I read, that you do, a visible incision in the area of the hairline and that here too, there may be permanent nerve damage , making sure that is little sensitive that area.
I don’t want to seem unnatural or fake, so doc I ask you, if I need these plants in these areas or there are other better and safer solutions.
A: In answer to your questions:
1) I don’t recall ever discussing any need for paranasal implants in your face. I have discussed custom jawline and infraorbital-malar implants only.
2) The third level in facial masculinization is brow bone augmentation. (not temples) When custom brow bone implants are placed they are done endoscopically through a small scalp incision. They are no issues with the potential for permanent motor nerve damage.
