How Can My Cheek and Jaw Reductions Be Reversed?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in a reversal jaw reduction and reversal cheekbone reduction procedure and would like to know how long I should plan to stay in Indiana before returning to my home country. Thank you for your time.

A: Most jaw and cheekbone reduction reversals require custom implants made to augment back part or all of what has been removed from the surgery. This requires the implants to be made from the patient’s postoperative 3D CT scan. That is a scan that is obtained where the patient lives which is then sent to me for design and manufacture, a process that takes several months to do and does not require a patient visit.

I assume when you refer to how long you would be here for the surgery and then able to return home….3 to 4 days after the surgery at most.
