Post Orthodontic Surgery: How long till I can start considering a chin implant?

Just wondering when I could start considering a chin implant. Rather find out here than waste a surgeon and my time with an appointment to get this question resolved. By the way I'm around seven months post op, I feel most if not all swelling and function as returned.

Being post orthodontic surgery I am surprised that your oral surgeon did not deal with this issue at the time of your oral surgery as both could have been accomplished at the same time. That said I would go for an appointment and be evaluated. Dr. Corbin
