How Long Before My Wedding Should I Get Chin And Jaw Angle Implants?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m interested in getting chin and jaw implants. I was wondering how long the waitlist is for that. I’m getting married mid November so was hoping he would have an open slot sometime in August.

A: Thank you for your inquiry. I would be very cautious about doing facial implant surgery close to a very important social and life event. By doing so you are banking on that no complications will occur and you will look and feel perfectly normal. Three months will be the minimum time I would do that before someone’s wedding which will be fine…provided no medical (infection) or aesthetic issues occur. (asymmetry, too big etc)

That being said the next question is whether standard chin and jaw angle or a custom jawline implant is needed. I would need some pictures to do imaging to determine what type of aesthetic jaw augmentation change you are seeking.
