What Do I Need To Fix My Weak Jawline?
Q: Dr. Eppley,I am a 27 year-old man currently looking for the best surgeon to carry out jawline and perhaps chin augmentation. I would love to get rod of this beard which I sue to camouflage my weak lower jaw. I have added you on Skype for a consult and have attached some pictures for your review.
A: I have done some imaging on your pictures. Yo do have a very short chin and high jaw angles. I don’t think a chin implant alone would suffice for the change that I have imaged. The concept of a sliding genioplasty with an overlay small square chin implant can create a 12 to 13mms of horizontal increase and add more squareness to your chin from the front view. Your jaw angles need vertical lengthening only with a minimal horizontal increase. All put together this should create a dramatic change in the jawline that will make you be able to dispense with the beard if you so desire.
