If I Get Custom Facial Implants Will People Notice The Change In My Appearance?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I want to get some implants in the lower part of my face to improve it without changing the features, just enlarging the size. Also, implants in the forehead and brow bones to make the eyelids less visible. I want to inquire about the extent of the change in my appearance and whether people will notice a big difference. I am 18 years old. When will the face bones stops growing ، and are implants affected if the face grows?

A: In answer to your facial augmentation questions:

1) The extent of change in facial appearance from custom facial implants is a direct reflection of their design…which is based on a predesign understanding of what the patient does and does not want to achieve.

2) Implants do not affect facial bone growth nor are they affected by facial bone growth.
