How Can I Restore My Lost Jaw Angles After V Line Surgery?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am a young male who recently had v line surgery to correct severe facial asymmetry. I am satisfied with the results but the surgery reduced my once very prominent/masculine jaw angle into essentially a curved line from the earlobe to the chin. I was hoping to look into jaw angle implants to restore the prior strong angle once my recovery is complete around june/july. I’ve attached CT scans as well.
A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your 3D CT scan. Secondary jaw angle implants can be done and in all post-V line surgery jaw reconstructions I have done a custom implant approach is used to meet the unique and remodeled jaw angle shapes.
