Lee Gwang-yeol’s surgery diary

Who am I?
Name : Lee Gwang-yeol
Age : 25 years old
Surgery date : September 17, 2009
Concern : mandibular prognathism
My name is Lee Gwang-yeol and I am a 25 year-old university student who dreams of becoming a chef in the future. When I was a child, I did not realize that my face is different from that of others. But then one day, my friends made fun of me while seeing me eat. They asked me, “Why do you eat, making so much noise like a goat?” It was then that I realized that my jaw is different from that of others …. I learned that my jaw is suffering from mandibular prognathism. I knew then that my profile is bit strange as well. To make my jaw look normal, I used to pull my jaw, but nothing worked. Instead, my jaw hurt. Can I have a beautiful jaw like the ordinary people?
Surgery plan
Plastic Surgeon, Wonseok Hyun
Lee Gwang-yeol had rather minor mandibular prognathism since the lower jaw was projected outward only by 7mm compared to the upper jaw. We decided to go for the ‘Mandibular surgery’ that entails pushing back the lower jaw towards the back and reducing the length since there was no composite problem besides the fact that the lower jaw is long and projected outward. The lower jaw, projected outward was subjected to bone fracture, pushing it back 7mm so that the otherwise unnatural jaw line turned natural and the impression turned soft.
Lee Yang-Ku, D.D.S., M.S.
This is a case in which there is no significant problem for performing Surgery First Orthognathic Approach. About the only problem was some snaggleteeth. Accordingly, Surgery First Orthognathic Approach was performed immediately, and the plan was to treat some snaggleteeth while conducting post-surgery orthodontics.
Changes post-surgery


It has been two months since I had Mandibular surgery. After the surgery was completed successfully, I am now undergoing orthodontics. Now, I was told that I can even take out the orthodontic appliance after six months..^^ Although I am undergoing orthodontics, I am happiest that I don’t have the tedious mandibular prognathism that used to bother me although it is bit inconvenient that I cannot eat everything I want. My friends are envious, saying that I turned into a handsome man. ~
