Hi,

I am thinking about getting a jaw surgery for a long time, around 3 years and now I feel is a high time to decide whether to do it or not. I visited a few maxillofacial surgeons and everyone agreed that I need genioplasty, one or two of them agreed to do double jaw surgery when I asked to do so. Now I have a filler in my chin so it is hard to assess my chin but I added one photo before chin filler.

What I want to achieve thought surgery:

1. More visible upper teeth
2. stronger lower jaw,
3. when I smile I have too much fat on cheeks I would like to have longer face
4. I Don't like frontal view of my face

I don't know why you want more tooth show, do you want to have a gummy smile? Your profile currently looks very nice, they did an amazing job on your chin fillers. A slightly stronger lower jaw would not be much an improvement. I am really shocked you want a longer midface, you actually look like you would need CCW if you got jaw surgery.

Kingusia87,

You are a beautiful girl. Your smile is perfect and your face well balanced.
I saw that your WT are not erupted, so you are probably 18-20 years old. Your face will probably change and in a good way.

I didn't see any jaw difformity.

You don't want implant but you will have titanium screw in your face if you undergo jaw surgery.

So... do nothing. I agree with everyone.

If I had a chin and gums show when smiling like Kate Beckinsale has  I would never think about surgery ;) I know that my problem is mostly small and receding chin what you can see on the second photo. I ckecked chin wing but I don't want to lost mandubilar angles. And I worry that genioplasty will give my nice look from the profile but long and not natural looking chin from frontal view.

Reggardinf cheeks I meant only anterior augmention. The cheekbones are wise but flat from the frontal view.

Maybe time to THINK about bi max surgery NOT making you look like Kate Beckinsale and instead pronouncing your nose more forward where the triangled nostril notches (tell tale sign of rhino) and thick tip will just show more as will the pronounced upper lip. I think your worries about genioplasty are justified especially if it's something to do expecting to look MORE like a celeb. If you've had good success with filler, then maybe stick with that or re-evaluate your aversion to implants to augment the desired areas.

This has got to be the best way to widen the upper jaw!

I have jaw expansion and small WT fully erupted.
There were not extracted for a lack of room or something like this.
Don't you think that keeping WT help to maintain large jaws ?
A long as you bite with them, bone is fabricated. If you remove them you aggravate the situation (6 mm or more without bone on each side).

I have big holes behind my upper molars and I hate feeling it.

It's the other way around: Large jaws help maintain the WT.

You are laterally projected cheek-wise - anything more will take you into "unnatural at best" territory. Make sure if you do get something that isn't "artificial", that it is easily reversible if you don't like it.

I think the worst thing to try and do is "pre-empt" how you'll age by doing something permanent and potentially irreversible, especially in your particular case. You look like Kate Beckinsale in at least one of your pics. If you lengthen your mid face, you'll have more tooth show - but are you really prepped for the overall aesthetic change in proportions as a result? Correcting one "flaw" could throw the entire balance off - and if you look long-ish and sallow faced with a less feminine appearance, this could make you very unhappy indeed.

It takes time to see a change, especially if you remove them in your 10's or 20's and especially if your a man. (Women are candidate to osteoporosis and may lose bone more quickly).
Issues come years after for most people. They don't see the link with WT removal and think they age not well bevcause of genetic.

Honest dentist talk about the narrowing of the cheeks on their Website. But it has a negative effect and not a good effect.

Removing bicuspids is a huge mistake seriously. The growth is not finished and it stopped jaw developpment.
Premolars and molars support the cheeks.

My second sister has her 2 upper canines removed when she was young. She has a narrow face but ages well....

The best thing is to expand jaw during the growth to avoid extractions.

I have a little asymetria too.
My whole face and my whole body is more developped on the left side. I have even less hair on the right side
It has never bother me.
Maybe have a consultation for body dysmorphic disorder. No direspect. But maybe a consultation with a psychologist will help you to accept your asymetria, finding the real reason it bothers you so much.

Do not ruin your face, you look good.

I'm not at all bothered by my frontal asymmetry. I've always felt generally happy with my face in pics slightly from the right all the way to right profile, and unhappy with the entire other side. I'd like to better understand why that is, and if it's fixable without anything too major, fix it.

You look FINE. Everyone has a 'good' side and if the asymmetry is not really noticeable from the FRONT, it's within norm everyone has it.
