Chin Augmentation and Brow Asymmetry

Q: Dr. Eppley,  I am interested in a chin augmentation. I am 6 feet tall and somehow my chin does not harmonize with the rest of my face. It’s not that I don’t have a chin, but it just doesn’t seem masculine.

I would be very interested in a chin implant and would also like to have the procedure performed later this year. I would also like my jaw to look more contoured. I had in mind filler + chin implant. Can fillers have the same effect as a jawline implant? In this part I’m not sure yet why a temporary solution would be good but with the chin I’m sure it should be permanent. My eyebrows are pretty asymmetrical, maybe you could fix it parallel. I would be very pleased about a cost calculation and would also like to have the intervention carried out with you.

A; Than you for your inquiry and sending all of your pictures. Doing a chin implant with injectable filler or fat is a good combination when one is uncertain as to the jaw angle effect that they seek or whether it would be what they want. The debate for a jaw angle fillers comes to a synthetic like Radiesse or using one’s own fat. There are arguments to be made on either side.

For the brow asymmetry what can be done is to lift the lower side of the eft inner brow area. It is not possible to lower a higher brow so it would be important to know which type of brow change you seek. I will assume the former for now.

I will have my assistant Camille pass along the cost of the surgery to you later today.
