Male Model Look

Q: Dr. Eppley,  I am interested in chin, cheek and jaw augmentation. Like others, I am looking for exceptionally square, strong and masculine jawline to bring my facial aesthetics to the next level. I already have a fairly low body fat percentage (around 7-8%) but have always had slight TMJ on my right side and for as long as I can remember wanted to really strengthen my face.

Would I be a good candidate for a jaw, cheek, chin augmentation, and/or rhinoplasty to strengthen and balance my face? Or should I address the slight TMJ issue first? Which procedure or combination of the aforementioned would lead to the highly coveted male model facial look? I’ve attached a photo with the front and both sides of my face as well as a goal photo for reference.

A: I have done some imaging looking at rhinoplasty, cheek, and total jaw augmentation for your review. You have a good face for these type of changes because your face is already skeletonized, just disproportionate. The jawline change will require a custom wrap around jawline implant. Whether this would achieve the male model look that you desire is open to  one’s interpretation
