Can One Get Jaw Angle Implants If They Already Have Masseter Muscle Dehiscence?

Q: Dr. Eppley, for people who already had a masseter muscle retraction after jaw angle implant removal, can they have a new jaw angle implant placed even with a retracted masseter muscle?

A: Masseter muscle dehiscence does not preclude secondary jaw angle implant placement.
