Facial Reshaping

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in multiple facial reshaping surgeries for my nose, cheeks and jawline. I have attached my pictures with morphs of what I want to achieve. I want to see off these type of results are possible.

A: Thank you for sending your picture and providing a detailed description of your facial reshaping goals. To summarize that list it includes the following: rhinoplasty, cheek and jaw angle implants and chin reshaping. The rhinoplasty is straightforward as you seek a more swooped or concave dorsal profile and a more refined and upturned tip. Your jaw angles need a little more definition as it is yet to be determined whether that is primarily a width or vertical lengthening cap implant but either way such implants would come from preformed standard styles and sizes. The cheek augmentation, as defined by the outcome you have drawn, does not come in any preformed style that fits that exact shape. But it is a design that goes back along the arch from the main body of the cheek and I have some special design styles that would work. You appear to want the chin vertically reduced but I not clear about the other shape change. (narrowing?)
