Is 18Years Old Too Young for a Custom Jawline Implant?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I do apologize if this is not the correct way to contact you but i recently saw your Youtube video about custom jaw implants.
I was just wondering a few things.
I am from the UK and was wondering if you are able to complete surgeries on someone out of the with US?
I also am going to start saving soon for the cosmetic work I wish to have done and was wondering if there was any chance you had a rough cost so iIknew what i was looking to save ?
I do not want to waste you time by asking for a full consultation as I may not have the money for a few months and I fully understand costs may vary greatly depending on the patient, but just a ballpark figure would be fantastic.
Im 18 also and wonder also if it would be advised to wait until I was a little order or if i can get the procedure soon ?
Thank you so much and sorry for any inconvenience this may cause you.
A: Thank you for your inquiry. In answer to your custom jaw implant questions:
1) The vast majority of patients for custom jaw implant comes from may different places all over the world. So it is common that patients travel in for the surgery.
2) My assistant Camille will pass along the cost of the surgery to you on Monday.
3) At age 18 your lower jaw is adequately developed to have the surgery.
