Consultation for Aesthetic Impact of Jaw Surgery

I'm planning a jaw surgery for functional reasons and wanted a better understanding of the aesthetic implications. Dr Eppley gave me the unbiased answers I needed and more time than I paid for even without a procedure in mind. I can tell he's conservative and knowledgeable, trustworthy in other words. READ MORE

How do my son's ears look? (photo)

My son was born with a lop ear. Our Ped advised us not to splint at birth and he's 18mo old now. The Ear Buddies website says that they can still work up to 2yo. We took him to... READ MORE

Should I get jaw surgery? (photo)

I have an anterior open bite and a class 3 malocclusion. Others don't seem to notice either so I think they're relatively minor. However, I have ground down my rear teeth some... READ MORE

How long can I use Flonase?

What do other surgeons think of the tools and techniques used by Dr Hernandez Alfaro in orthognathic surgery?

Some of the best surgeons are in India because they see more cases and get a lot more practice than we have here in America. Regulations are a lot laxer there so the main downsides are that it's hard for a foreigner to discriminate... READ COMMENT

You should have used an oculoplastic surgeon. Tear through deformity is common, I have it too at 35 but more commonly seen at 45-50. It's due to a recessed infraorbital rim and cheekbone. Since those are normal for you, my guess is... READ COMMENT

It indeed hasn't changed much. Humans can only distinguish about 3mm of change so one notch smaller than before. It may be normal for your age group now. Your tooth show was fine before and still fine I think, just different ends of the... READ COMMENT

The world class expert in TMJ problems and a pioneer in jaw and joint surgery is Dr Wolford in Dallas. He also does craniofacial work but Dr Sinn in Dallas has a better reputation for that kind of work. Dr Schmitz in San Antonio is also... READ COMMENT
