OR Snapshots – Male Custom Jawline Implant

 

The best way to change the shape of the jawline for many men is a custom jawline implant. Custom designed from the patient’s 3D CT scan, the implant is usually a wrap around style that augments the entire jawline. Changing the shape of the jaw angles and jawline in a continuous fashion around the arc of the jaw can create a dramatic change if the patient so desires.

While such a jawline implant is custom designed, how to create the exact look that the patient wants from such a designing process remains more of an art form rather than an exact science. Besides the implant design the exterior facial change that is achieved is affected by the overlying soft tissues as well.

male-custom-jawline-implant-dr-barry-eppley-indianapolisHaving designed and implanted many a custom jawline implant I am still always amazed when seeing the actual implant at the time of surgery. When designing such implants I may think they are big or small but seeing them in person is almost always a revelation. The size of all custom jawline implants fits into my relatively small hand.

Inserting such a facial implant always seems daunting given its size and how it compares to much smaller standard cheek and chin implants. But a three-incisional insertion technique allows a safe and effective placement method.
