I'm wanting to get opinions as to what my face is lacking. I feel like I have a recessed jaw due to four teeth being removed before getting braces when I was 14. To me I feel like my face is just too narrow and I'm very self concious of my side profile. I have TMJ pain that I've been trying to treat for years. I even recently had braces AGAIN to try and help it. Should I treat cosmetically with chin implant,etc.? Would I be a good canidate for a lip lift since I have bad lip posture?

Bad lip posture?
You are beautiful. I don't think there is anything wrong with your lip posture. I think someone has worked over your self-image (mom perhaps). I would advise staying away from the oral surgeons and cosmetic surgeons as much as possible. Consider working with a psychotherapist on your self-esteem. Your slight facial asymmetry is most likely barely noticeable in person.
