‘Transparent orthognathic surgery’ without any trace

An outstanding surgical method of an orthognathic surgery becomes an issue among the public. The method gets its nickname, a perfect crime of orthognathic surgery, and draws the public’s attention. There will not be any trace after surgery because absorbable screws are used during this method, so it is called ‘transparent orthognathic surgery.’

Absorbable screws will last for 6 months and hold bones tightly. The screws then will be absorbed in the bones in 2 years. If a patient who had orthognathic surgery with absorbable screws takes an X-ray, the screws do not show on the film at all. This is a huge difference, compared to the titanium screws which permanently stay in the surgical site and are seen on the X-ray.

Absorbable screws have been used in the past. When Dr. Sang-hoon Park from ID hospital who worked for Seoul Asan Medical Hospital in 1999 first adopted absorbable screws in Korea and has been consistently using the screws in his performance of orthognathic surgery and v-line surgery.

The durability of absorbable screws has been approved by FDA, CE, and KFDA.

Dr. Park from ID hospital says that “Transparent orthognathic surgery does not require an additional surgery to remove screws. Also, there is no worry about rejection to foreign substance because the screws used for transparent orthognathic surgery are going to be naturally absorbed.”

Dr. Park also says that “It is important to visit a trustworthy hospital to get a surgery with absorbable screws because a professional know-how is required, in order for absorbable screws to be fixed in the optimal positions to induce the most intensity.”
