Custom Infraorbital-Malar Implant
Q: Dr. Eppley, i am interested in custom infraorbital-malar implant and a custom wraparound jawline implant. I guess the best way is to do them together?
I would be interested in predictions of custom infraorbital-malar implants and custom wraparound jawline implant, does separately and then together.
I am also interested in before and after pictures of patient who had either such custom implants.
I guess it’s irrelevant if I do Veneers before or after?
A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your pictures. I will have my assistant Camille contact you to schedule a virtual consultation time. In answer to your general questions:
1) Whether one does more than one custom facial implant at one time is a personal decision not a medical one. But it is certainly common to do so.
2) Due to patient confidentiality patient pictures are not distributed without their permission…which is done by very few patients. Any such permitted pictures would be posted on the website, www.exploreplasticsurgery.com.
3) You are correct in regards to veneers, it is irrelevant whether they are done before or after. But because of the intraoral approach for much of a custom jawline implant, I would vote for veneers after that procedue is completed. to avoid any trauma to them.
4) Computer imaging of your pictures will be done after the virtual consultation is completed.
Dr. Barry Eppley
