Is A Custom Jaw Implant A Good Option After Orthignathic Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, Hello, I have had a Le Fort Osteotomy for sleep apnea in 2020, and am unhappy with my jaw appearance after (too narrow, undefined). I tried a jaw implant in 2021 but it became infected and had to be removed. I am wondering if a custom jaw implant would be an option for me? 

Thank you

A: Almost always a custom wrap around jawline implant is the most effective approach for jaw augmentation after orthognathic surgery. I would need to see some pictures and do some computer imaging to see what type of changes is desired/possible.
