Can A Custom Jawline Implant Fix Vertical Asymmetry Of the Lower Jaw?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I was just wanting to confirm whether jaw implants were available to fix asymmetry in the jawline? I have been to see an maxillofacial surgeon who has advised me that one side of the jawline is “shorter”.
I am hoping to avoid double jaw surgery as I am in my mid 20s and I have been told it is a very invasive procedure which has not been recommend to me for my slight asymmetry.
A: Custom jawline implants are done all the time to fix vertical length jaw asymmetries. (see attached) That can be done alone or often as part of an overall jaw enhancement as well.
