  • Patient has a protruding chin or microgenia but received a mouth protrusion correction surgery without satisfying results
  • Patient was diagnosed wrong or was afraid and received other surgery but not satisfied with the results

Wrong operation

Side effects and unsatisfactory results even after two-jaw surgery

  • Appearance and jaw function still has a problem after two-jaw surgery
  • Pushed the lower jaw too far which made the sides of the nose and mouth collapse
  • Nerve damage, muscle damage or other side effects have been caused during the surgery

Technically Difficult Two-Jaw Surgery Reoperation


Reasons why revision orthognathic surgery is difficult!

Incised Jaw Bones

Jaw bones have been already incised. It is difficult to make another incision for shape and symmetry.

Lack of Pinning Sites

After existing pins from past two-jaw surgery are removed, there is not much space for new fixing pins.

Twisted Anatomical Structure

Facial anatomy including the bones, nerves, muscles, and skin tissues are already transformed.

3 Key Points for Orthognathic Surgery Reconstruction

Precise Simulation

Jaw bone have been incised and structure has been transformed. It is important to precisely comprehend remaining bone and nerve structure, and run a precise simulation.

Find pinning sites & Reliable pinning technology

Bones were already pinned before. It is important to find right pinning sites to stop the bones returning to their previous sites.

Rich surgical experience

Double-jaw surgery reoperation is reconstruction of already transformed anatomical structure. Therefore, the surgeon should have anatomical knowledge and experience.
