Can My Jawline Asymmetry Be Corrected?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in correcting my jawline asymmetry, it is very bothersome I was curious if anything can be done to address it? I had a CT scan taken recently, I am not sure if it is 3D though.

A: Thank you for sending your pictures and panorex x-ray. Your chin/anterior jawline asymmetry is caused by a lower inferior border which can be clearly seen on the rays. This can be corrected by an inferior border shave done from a submental chin incision under the chin. Measurements would be taken off of the x-ray to determine how far back the asymmetry goes as well as how much needs to be shaved off to match the left side.
