Jawline Augmentation

Q: Dr. Eppley, I had this jawline augmentation morph done by a person who claims to do plastic surgery morph predictions, and I was wondering if this really is realistic and if I can look like this by any surgery necessary to achieve it. It is basically my ideal result if I could get it, but I want to know if it really is possible. (if anything, i would like to go even further)

Also, and this may be a bit ‘out there’, but would it even be possible to find a man with great facial bone structure and get him to get the 3D CT scan, then you can match my facial bones and jawline with his to make the implants so I would have a jawline augmentation to look like him afterwards?

A: I do think that type of jawline augmentation result is possible. It can only be done with a custom jawline implant designed by a surgeon who has done a lot of them who would know the dimensions to make that type of ‘extreme’ jawline augmentation result. It is not realistic to use someone else’s 3D CT scan as there are other factors involved in how one looks than just their bone structure. And no one is going to expose themselves to radiation for someone else’s benefit.
