ZO - Barry Epply?
« on: November 09, 2017, 05:00:40 PM »
Hi Folks, just wondering if anyone had any experience with him or any thoughts on him. He's one of the few that performs ZO in states.

Thanks.

He has a blog entry (somewhere) where he explains why he prefers implants instead.

Did he tell you in a private consult he does it? Cause if its just from his internet responses I wouldnt trust it. Ask him to show you even one before and after pick of ZO that he's done.

No, just info I gleaned from his website and realself.  I know he does so many different procedures, so I assume he doesn't do it often .  I only saw one result on his website but it was not much change.  Just frustrating as I want to do something about my cheekbones without implants.

Dr. Eppley knows what folks are searching for and writes info about it in his blog. With the ZO, the impression I got was that he writes about it to fix face fractures or as something mainly to just widen the face but feels implants are better for shaping more dimensions than just width. I could be wrong but my impression was that even though he said he performed them, he's not making overtures for people to seek him out for that instead of implants.

If you are dead set against implants, it's probably better to travel to a doc who is also dead set against them and performs routinely.

I agree with your impression on.  He does seem to prefer implants, but is capable of doing ZO so I just thought it was something to look at.  Ya, I just need to find someone that someone lol.

Maverick reported he was getting the zo done (in October) by the doctor in Germany you wanted to do yours. But he did not update.

Yes, would be nice if he updated us.  I haven't chosen a surgeon at this point, still trying to figure out my best option.

Thanks Laz, I'll have to cross him off the list.

For that type of thing in America? Dr. Sinn I would argue is the only way to go. People are calling it a mfl3 but what Sinn does is a really a ZO on steroids. I've seen more results from him and while I had some initial reservations I can say more confidently it is a good surgery and your risks of complications are very low.

Yea, would prefer America than Europe in terms of travel distance.  I think that mlf3 w/ Sinn or would be ideal as well.  The only person I know who's had it was earl. kinda scares me cause i think some drs were discouraging him from it saying there was a small risk of blindness.  just seems like a big deal.

i think the risk of all that is pretty low. I've seen a couple more results and everything went totally fine.
