How Can I Achieve The Male Model Look For My Face?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have been reading for quite some time on your website and I found a lot of terrific information.  I am looking for what you describe as the “Male Model Look”. Could you please tell by the enclosed photos what procedures you would suggest for my face in order to achieve this look. I have been reading about jaw angle, jaw, implants and cheek implants but would like to know what you suggest for my particular face.  What else would you suggest? I am 38 years old. I have already had my ears pinned one month ago. Could you also do a custom facial imaging so that I have an idea how I will look (more or less). 

A: Thank you for your inquiry. The so called Male Model Look is really about accentuating some or all of the skeletal highlights of the face. These include the brow bones, nose, cheeks, chin and jaw angles/jawline. One has to not have too thick of facial soft tissues to see the effects of the augmentations. When analyzing your face, you have the right amount of soft tissue cover to show these effects well. You are most deficient in the jawline area (chin and jaw angles) and secondarily in the cheeks. For starters, I have just focused on these three areas as you can see in the attached computer imaging. There would be the 'best value' procedures for your face. The only other thought would be some nasal thinning in the tip area. (but I have not done that so you can focus on the more important areas for now)
