Thank you for your questions. The surgery you are asking about is a procedure that is usually performed by board certified plastic surgeons. Sometimes an oral surgeon is also present at the time of surgery. You should be evaluated with an exam and appropriate X-rays and have a plan for the desired result. I am available if you have more questions.
