Can Temporal and Tear Trough Implants Make My Face More Symmetrical?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Can temple implants and tear trough implants make my face more symmetrical? I had BSSO advancement which made the jaw angles more obtuse and desire jaw angle implants too. Would like to know your views via a possible consultation.

A:Thank you for your inquiry and sending your picture. The aesthetic benefits of temporal and infraorbital augmentation are fairly clear when imaging your front view picture. (see attached) The jaw angles are harder to properly visualize from just a front view picture. BSSO surgery is well known to adversely alter the shape of the jaw angle bone.
