Lee Ha-young’s surgery diary

Who am I?
Name :: Lee Ha-young
Surgery date : January 7, 2007
Concern : bimaxillary prognathism, mandibular prognathism, long face
Hello, this isLee Ha-young. I have long face, and I cannot shut my mouth easily since the lower jaw and the mouth are projected outward. In addition, it is very difficult for me to chew as well. When I got consultation at the hospital, I was told that I have not only long face and bimaxillary prognathism, but also mandibular prognathism, asymmetry face and open occlusion that does not allow me to close my mouth.
 
I saw results of virtual plastic surgery while getting consultation at the hospital. I wish that I would benefit as such as well. I know that I have to undergo a major surgery as well as get orthodontics treatment, but I only wish that I can get the surgery soon instead of worrying. I used to walk around with my head turned down due to my face that is far from the ordinary. I would like to get operated fast so that I can see the other side of me that I saw on the virtual plastic surgery.
 
Surgery plan
 
Sanghoon Park, M.D., Ph.D
In case of Lee Ha-young, mandibular prognathism impression and long center of the face made her gum show too much and the face was imbalanced. Likewise, she was afflicted with composite problem. To resolve this issue, length of the center of the face was reduced and the lower jaw, projected outward was pushed back so that the mouth could close naturally. In overall, the length of the long face was reduced as well. Bimaxillary surgery was performed to reduce upper jaw’s length by 3mm, rotating it by 3mm. the lower jaw, projected outward severely was pushed back by 10mm. To reduce the size of the long face, jaw tip’s length was reduced by 5mm. After the surgery, her face turned into a cute face as the small and cute features on the smaller face formed harmony.

Finally, all the orthodontic appliances were removed, and I had a photo taken to celebrate. The long face was reduced in size and the mouth that I could not close easily closes easily now. Perhaps these functions are a given to others, but I am so happy and surprised. My friends and relatives tell me that my looks when I was a child are surfacing once again because I used to hear that I am cute when I was little! After the surgery, every day feels new and joyful.
