Dear Beverly, Cheek implants may be of help or reduction of your mandible laterally (if these are wide). There are also ways of moving the jaws forward but this is performed by craniofacial surgeons and is usually very expensive with many risks. It may be the best choice though, depending upon the extent of correction you desire. I would suggest a visit with a craniofacial plastic surgeon in order to determine which of the options is best for you.
