Probably ... if I'll not change my mind the last minute and I'll not undergo the surgery because too scared :)

Dude the hipgraft and operation are the smoothest things in the world. You may not 100 percent have the results you wanted but that's the worst thing that can happen. Fear isn't an issue with this operation.

I'm not looking for big movements with chin wing.
For me it's more important the symmetry because I have a small asymmetry between my jaw angle, and I would like to compensate it

It's like Lazlo says.

The risk of your fears about the harvest part are very low. So, just make sure it would not be the 'worst' thing for you if you didn't get 100% correction of it.

Even if there were no hip harvest involved, it's still an invasive procedure for a small asymmetry.

I also think it's inconciderate to the doctor to give yourself the option to crap out at the last minute. You should deal with your fear factor of whether you want it or not on your own time.

Seriously dude, the best time to entertain what ever fears you have about a surgery is before you book one. Step 1: Ask around for patient experiences. Step 2: Bring them up to the doctor during a consult. Step 3: Book ONLY IF you've put things in perspective and have made the DECISION that the potential risks are worth the potential pay-offs.

I thought a lot about the surgery. And I did a lot of simulations. I think that I really would be much better with a wider jaw angle. The problem of the asymmetry is that I think that one side have to be increased less than the other because is already larger than the other ....

Think about surgeries IN TERMS of resolving to a DEFINITE decision 'for' or 'against' having them and not in terms of booking them to prolong INDECISION with option to crap out at last minute.
