Long Face Syndrome Remains After Orthognathic Surgery, Can my Face Be Shortened?
My face is slightly longer due to the 4mm genio and rotation of mandible. Lower moved forward 14mm upper moved 9mm. How can my face be shortened? My face was shorter before surgery but my lower jaw was recessed. Widest between nose and eyes.
