Cam Mouth Widening Make It Wider By One Inch?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m so impressed of your work to enlarge mouth, and I really want to do it for my mouth to make it wider (maybe 1″ would be the best).
As you can see in the picture, I have a ratio between nose and mouth around 1:1, which is not good and I can’t have a good looking smile.
A: There are two factors you need to consider in mouth widening surgery:
1) The maximum amount per side done is 7mms.
2) Scars at the mouth corners are unpredictable and there is a relatively high rate of revision of them.
