How Can I Get A Permanent Near 90 Degree Jawline?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hello, I would like to get a jaw implant sometime in the next month or two, or whenever your next availability is. I got dermal fillers in NYC 3 months ago but would like something more permanent. Essentially I would like a more 90 degree jawline, i’m already pretty happy with my chin although I would still like to consult about all the options.

A: In answer to your jaw augmentation questions:

1) I mainly do 3D jaw implants made specifically from the patient’s 3D CT scan…a design and manufacturing process that 3 months to complete.

2) Standard jaw angle implants do exist and they may be appropriate for some patient’s aesthetic needs but that requires computer imaging of pictures to determine exactly what the patient wants to achieve. Standard jaw angle implants have their aesthetic limitations as well as higher risks of asymmetry.
