Corrective jaw surgeries are done for esthetic and functional purposes when either of jaws have prognathism(forwardly placed jaw than normal) or retrognathism (backwardly placed than normal). These kind of growth discrepancies may cause excessive forces on the temporomandibular joint and lead to joint pain in the longer run.
Here we are presenting one such patient who had excessive growth of the lower jaw which was esthetically and functionally not normal. Treatment plan decided was bilateral sagital split osteotomy i.e. the lower jaw was split and was moved to more posterior (backward) position. After the surgery, patient’s profile has shown drastic improvement, patient and his family were very happy with the result. We have attached the preoperative, intra operative and post operative photograph of the patient
