How Can I Shorten The Longer Side Of My Face?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hi I have a longer side of my face, I had double jaw surgery here in Montana, but it didn’t change the length of my left mandible which is too long and I wish for a symmetrical face please help thank you so much

A: Thank you for your inquiry and sending your picture. Since you have had  orthognathic surgery you must have postoperative x-rays from the surgery. Those would be helpful to review the different lengths between the two sides of your lower jaw to determine what could be done and how such a jaw reduction may be able to be done.
