Hello Dr. Lam,
I am a 19 year old male. I have a slightly deficient mandible, but I do not want to undergo any major surgery such as orthognathic surgery. I have had braces for 2 years and my overbite has been fixed. I know that I need a chin implant, but I also have a narrow jaw, especially the back part, right under my ears. I was thinking about jaw implants, but I have talked to some doctors about it and they said it might affect my involvement in martial arts so that is certainly not an option for me. Recently, I was reading about artefill or fat grafting being used to augment and widen the back of jaw. I wanted to know your opinion on whether a filler can widen the back of the jaw and if you do this procedure.
