ORTHOGNATHIC SURGERY

Orthognathic surgery is the part of maxillofacial surgery that deals with oro-maxillofacial dysmorphosis, that is, jaw offsets responsible for functional and / or aesthetic problems.

This type of surgery involves repositioning the upper jaw and / or lower jaw and / or chin. These interventions are mostly performed as part of an orthodontic treatment or treatment of sleep apnea.

Collaboration with the orthodontist is essential. Precise preoperative analysis will be performed and consist of:

  • An in-depth clinical examination and clinical pictures
  • Radiological examinations
  • An examination of the dental casts

It is performed under general anesthesia with an average hospital stay of 2 to 3 days in the hospital.

At your first consultation, please always bring with you:

  1. The letter from your orthodontist
  2. X-rays already taken from your dentist / orthodontist / radiologist
  3. Dental casts (plaster dental arches) if you have already made them.

Cheekbone contouring surgery

This surgery of the contour of the face will consist of correcting an anomaly of the cheekbones.

This is most often done by placing implants specifically adapted to the patient. This tailor-made surgery requires a three-dimensional preoperative study and therefore the realization of a facial CT-scan.

The surgery is done under general anesthesia.
