Re: Looking for maxillofacial surgeons in these countries (Eastern Europe)

Re: Upper Jaw Surgery Reversal? Nose question and Depression

Not sure but my surgeon has that in plan, so he's not impacting my teeth to much. He says it's better to still have some gummy smile than to over-impact. I guess some surgeons don'...

I show my upper incisors and have lip incompetence. I show 8mm of teeth, and the surgeon is going to minimise that with a VY sutures in addition to double jaw surger where he's going to impact m maxilla for 2-3mm. Not sure how to fix it when you show your bottom teerh though.
