Chin Implant Instead of Full Corrective Jaw Surgery for Open Bite - Albuquerque, NM

My Dr. Suggested my open bite is not so severe as to require full corrective jaw surgery. He convinced me to just do a chin implant to improve my recessed chin. However 2 mos post op the left side of my chin appears asymmetric to the right. I'm now considering whether to have this redone at another place that offers computer imaging prediction first, or to try & have fillers put in to correct asymmetry, or to get full corrective jaw surgery PLUS braces instead. I really wish this would have turned out better, I think it could have made a positive difference for me. I'd still like to avoid braces & full jaw surgery, I just wish I had gone to a Dr. Who does computer imaging first to predict the outcome of chosen implant.
