Facial Reshaping Surgery

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in facial reshaping surgery. I would like your opinion on what I should do to ”enhance” the harmony of my face. I’m referring to what procedures would make my face look better and what’s necessary to be done. I think I need a nose job at least but I’d also like an opinion on what other ”fix-ups” would be necessary because I don’t want to do the wrong thing and make mistakes.

A: Thank you for your facial reshaping surgery inquiry. When it comes to your face the first thing to realize is that you have a very good looking face with strong bone structure. There is no deficiencies or an obvious reshaping effort that needs to be done to normal your facial proportions. 

That be said if you want to enhance the existing structure of your face the best thing to do is jaw angle augmentation which will help make your jawline stronger. Other areas like male model cheekbone augmentation is an option besides the rhinoplasty. But they probably carry less importance than that of your jawline for your facial reshaping surgery. Computer imaging will help you see if these facial changes would be aesthetically beneficial.
