What will make me have a more desirable profile? (photo)

Profile and facial contours
The 'long face' growth pattern involves a 'narrow jaw' viewed in the mirror. The present implant is a bit isolated and should 'blend' into the back of the jawline; so augmentation of the ramus and body of the mandible will help that to occur. Lip competence wont change with treatment that does not address the vertical overgrowth of the upper jaw.
