Q&A: Can a chin augmentation help after orthognathic surgery?

Ask A Doctor Question: 

i've had orthognathic surgery to repair an open bite but i still have a droopy lower lip and am a mouth breather and have trouble eating with my mouth closed. Can a chin augmentation help with these problems? can it even be done if i've had a sliding genioplasty?

Hi Andy,
This is a challenging problem and unfortunately cannot be answered without a "hands-on" examination. Get a couple of opinions.
