Hye doctor, my name is muiz. I'm from Malaysia and i'm 16. I would like to ask you a few questions about my major problem which happens to be on my face.. During my adolescene, i used to snap a photo using my mum telephone. After i review them, i saw my face was slightly looking assymetry. I also noticed that i have crooked teeth. But that matter still not affected me because i'm still a kid.. But since i grew older i noticed that this problem affected my social relationship. I decided to go to hospital to check and hopefully could repair my problem. I hope i could wear braces to fix my crooked teeth problem at first. But the doctor said I need to face the orthognatic surgery in order to get the perfect look and symmetrical face. But unfortunately, i could not go through the surgery because the doctor said i was to young to perform the orthognatic surgery.. i want to ask you, is it possible for 16 year old boy to perform the orthognatic surgery..
