Cosmetic Jaw Surgery (Orthognathic surgery):

The purpose of orthognathic surgery/ corrective jaw surgery is to correct functional and cosmetic s problems that are due to underlying jaw deformities. Orthognathic surgery is often the treatment solution in cases where the bite problem is so severe that orthodontic braces alone aren't enough to correct the problem or where orthodontics alone would compromise your facial appearance. One of the most rewarding aspects of orthognathic surgery is improved beauty and self-esteem. Severe bony deformities caused by jaw mismatch in size and position may cause serious problems. For example, an extremely small lower jaw may result in snoring and sleep apnea, which can consequently cause many health problems.

In cases of short upper lip and vertical excess of the upper jaw, the lips are usually open as they fail to close without effort due to an increased lower third of the face. Consequently, it may stimulate undesirable mouth breathing which further worsens occlusion. Frequently malocclusion can have a strong negative effect on speech function and often it can be accompanied by jaw joint pain.

Orthognathic surgery is surgery performed on the bones of the jaws to change their positions. Orthognathic surgery is corrective facial surgery where deformities of the jaw exist. It may be indicated for functional, cosmetic, or health reasons. It is a surgery commonly done on the jaws in conjunction with orthodontic treatment, which straightens the teeth.
