Chin wing is something I'm seriously considering myself and I'm also nervous about it. I hope your consult goes smoothly and if you get surgery it goes great as-well!

Butterball must be raking it in, as well as Gunson and Sinn, because they are the only surgeons people ever talk about on here... Its as if there isnt thousands of others. The fanboy aspect of it is really weird ::)

True but the fact is that most maxillofacial surgeons, especially in the UK, view the aesthetic importance of their surgery as frivolous.
These are some of the few surgeons who do not, hence why they are often discussed.

There are a lot of, at best amateur or at worst hack surgeons out there, let's not forget that.

Yes there is that aspect but if you're somehow privvy to knowing which maxfacs do what without consulting every thousands of them... do let us know

As it is, we can only go off the names that have established reputations.

indeed.  i believe it is a huuuge asset for a maxfac to be a plastic surgeon aswell.  something thats all too rare in the united states and UK.  And even the big names like posnik have gotten old, and have their share of botched surgeries (someone on this forum messaged me in woe about his botch with him). 

they just dont make em like H. obwegser anymore

You really think UK surgeons don't consider the aesthetic aspect as important? Where are you getting that from?

I think I heard that horror story as well. That was a Mommaerts level fuckup. The bite was worse than before surgery, an open bite with contact only on one incisor, cant, asymmetry, etc. Usually in revision cases the surgeon at least manages to fix the bite, but the patient is unhappy because the surgeon didn't care about aesthetics.
