Yeah the problem is that traditionally at least multipiece lefort can do at most 6-7 mm expansion.

Unless like I said Gunson and Woldord have pushed the technique much farther...

I guess if he can do a 10mm downgraft, he can probably graft something between the multi segments to expand.

Wolford uses porous HA blocks. I think Gunson does the same for large gaps.

Well guys, if they can do it as a multipiece LF1 with HA blocks to maintain the spacing and not give me avascular necrosis in the process, it will be life changing.

Booking Wolford as soon as he gets back from vacation. I'll call to book Gunson tomorrow or Friday.

Gonna have to start saving up some cash.

I went to the local "best guy in the country" even as I could afford any surgeon in the world.  The worst decision of my life.

Ditto with mine. In the early 2000s Dr. Tocchio would have probably been considered the best in my country. I see people still mentioning his name now. Now I'm here getting chopped up again.

Most jaw surgeons seem to be clowns unless it's something very simple like putting the lower jaw back 5 mm for a standard underbite.
