Can I Restore My Lost Jaw Angles After Orthognathic Surgery?
Q: Dr. Eppley, in 2015 I had a double jaw operation and also my chin is done. I am really dissapointed off the results I lost my ‘ jaw angle’ is it possible to get it back I don’t want a square face. but this really does not look good.
Hope to hear if something is possible.
Thx in advance.
A: It is certainly possible to restore your lost jaw angles. But your picture comparison the dimensions of the augmentation needed appears to be primarily in width. Given your prior orthognathic surgery and the inevitable bony changes/asymmetry of your jaw angles, this would be best done by custom jaw angle implant designs.
