Which Is Better – Standard Chin and Jaw Angle Implants or a Custom Jawline Implant?
Q: Dr. Eppley, On my question on Real Self, you answered me that chin, jaw and Infraorbital-malar augmentation would be of my benefit.
I know Infraorbital-malar augmentation can be achieved by a custom made implant only.
But what about the chin and jaw augmentation? Do you think it could also be achieved by standard implants in my case? Or do you recommend to get a custom wrap around implant to augment my jaw and chin, and make it more symmetrical?
Also, I know it’s not easy to answer questions on the price, because it’s very specific for each individual, but could you maybe tell me something more about the price-range for both a custom jawline implant and a custom Infraorbital-malar implant?
My goal is to get a more masculine look, and make my face more symmetrical and balanced, and get the high cheekbone look.
I will provide the same pictures I posted on Real Self.
A: The short answer is if one is getting one set of custom implants (Infraorbital-malar) it would sense to do a second custom at the same time (jawline) sine the manufacturer offers a significant discount for designing and making of two custom implants using the same design sessions.
My assistant Camille will pass along the cost of such procedures to you by tomorrow.
