What Facial Reshaping Procedure(s) Would Make My Face Straight?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have a question regarding facial outline and skull shape. I have looked through your question archives but couldn’t find anything on the exact topic. Is it possible to change the facial outline of your face to make it less round and more straight. I am including a picture as an example. My facial outline is round. The model has a straight facial outline which is well defined. I understand that buccal fat can be removed for less round face but I am asking about the outline of the face and not the cheeks. Thank you

A: Without having a reference point (your picture) I can not say whether your face and what could be done to change to make it more straight is possible.
