How will be the face narower by orthodontia?I want to have thin face

Orthognathic: If you measured your face from zygoma to zygoma, the width can be reduced with bone reduction plastic surgery. If you measured the width from mandible angle to angle, then thinning the madible muscle might make your face thinner. If you have a short face and need face to look longer, then orthognathic orthodonosia with possible surgery will help.
