Is a 3D CT Scan Necessary Before a Custom Facial Implant Consult?

Q: Dr. Eppley, is a CT scan/3D CT beneficial to have done prior to a consultation for custom facial implants. Thank you.

A: The 3D CT scan is the platform on which custom implants are designed but they doi not tell us what to do, only how to do it. So no a 3D CT scan is not required or beneficial for the initial consult.
