    Actually, I don't think it's associated with jaw-growth, but rather that having surgery while on accutane (surgery that involves bone and causes trauma to it), has been associated with bone growth...that is, rapid bone growth may occur if one is on accutane and then has surgery ....it probably has something to do with the rate at which bone heals from surgery and that the rate can be accelerated while on accutane thus leading to "excessive" bone growth.
