I was wanting some expert advice on my situation. In June 2013, I had a poorly planned upper jaw surgery and 7mm sliding genioplasty for a class 2 bite. This has left me with a recessed lower jaw and a broad,  long masculine over sized chin, defeating the whole purpose of the surgery. Currently no surgeon will operate on my jaws so I am seeking to just fix what was done to my chin. The whole chin bone was cut straight across, even including some of my lower jaw. My chin and top jaw were plated back together crooked. I really just want to go back to looking as close as i did before this surgery. I was considered attractive before this surgery and now I look like a man. Can I look normal without moving the lower jaw and just fixing my chin? What's the best way to fix such a bad genio? Thank you.

Answer
Hello,

I am sorry for your bad experience.  I do see some problems with your profile and we may be able to do something with chin to make it more feminine.  But I would like to look at the face as whole and see if anything should be done on the top jaw as well!?.
