On one side of the jawline my implant wing crosses the bone and sticks out. My jawline is asymmetric and is higher on one side. On the higher side the wing sticks out. My doctor told me the implant wing can't be placed upward and inserted on line with the jawline because the shape of the implant doesnt allow it. The wings on the implant don't have the right angle to match my higher jawline. Is it possible to cut the wing loose from the implant and place it separately from the rest of the implant on line with the jaweline? I'm gonna discuss this with my surgeon but it will be at least 1,5 month before is see him again. Before i see him again i would like to have some more knowledge about the possiblities
