Q: Dr. Eppley, I had a few questions regarding jawline augmentation. I’m looking for a custom wraparound implant to enhance my lower third, and and give me that sought after “male model” look. Angularity and sharpness are very important to me, and from my research online I was hard pressed to find very many implant results that showed the angularity/sharpness that I was looking for. My question is if an individual had an acceptable body fat (8-10% or lower), and started off with an average jaw/chin could something like the two photos I have attached be reliably achieved by a skilled surgeon like yourself. Secondly, are implants the best route to achieve this look, or should should other procedures be considered. Thanks and have a wonderful day.
A: The key to getting great jawline angularity from jawline augmentation is that one has to have the right kind of face for it…meaning a very lean face with little fat….just like the two pictures that are have attached in your email. A custom jawline implant, whether it is three separate implants or a single piece, is the only way to achieve this degree of jawline angularity since no standard chin or jaw angle implants are designed to do so.
