When the central line of the face is not straight, we call it facial asymmetry. The jaw line on the right and left are different and the central line is bent or skewed. In some cases, asymmetry of the right and left jaws can occur. In other cases, mandibular prognathism or mouth protrusion can occur on top of facial asymmetry.
It is a surgical procedure to correct the small chin tip when your bite is properly aligned. A surgeon cuts the chin tip then moves the lower portion of separated bone forward and wires in position. By grafting the patient’s bone, it is possible to add more volume to the chip tip and correct it in a good position.
This procedure can be performed without the use of artificial implant material and it is also effective in creating a beautiful neck line while significantly adjusting the position of the chin tip.
