What is protruded mouth surgery (Anterior Segmental Osteotomy)?

Performed when both the ulitis and teeth are protruded.

The surgery is suitable when both the ulitis and teeth are protruded.
Extract 2 premolars behind the canines (2 upper, 2 lower) and push the protruding ulitis and teeth into the site of tooth extraction to improve the protrusion problem.
The area affected by the surgery is limited to the region around the mouth and does not bring about change in the jaw joints. For this reason, it is not suitable when chin revision is required for a long face or facial asymmetry.

When you need cheekbone surgery

01If you have protruding teeth and gums and your lips look thick

02If your mouth looks unnatural and you have to force it to close

03Smile with appearance of a lot of gums

04If your nose and forehead look relatively low due to the protruded mouth

Surgery method

Over-correction might be caused and you might have an appearance of a toothless person when the ulitis is pushed too far into the empty space where teeth was extracted from during the protruded mouth surgery.
To prevent over-correction, precise planning should be performed to move the ulitis to the proper position and then, orthodontic treatment should be provided to fill in the remaining site of tooth extraction .

3Fast fixing

The fast fixation is a short-term fixation procedure for 2 – 3 days to help the chin joints settle in a more stable position.
The joints are fixed with rubber bands rather than metal wires for the free movement of the chin and comfortable breathing, eating and conversation.

43D CT satisfying both precision and safety

It is important to accurately identify the position of the neural gland and understand the bone structure (size, width, thickness, length) due to difficulty in securing a good field of vision during the facial bone surgery.

View Plastic Surgery Clinic performs 3D-CT imaging for 3D analysis to precisely identify the bone structure and the position of the neural gland, effectively solve problems in the function of the chin and aesthetic issues, and minimize nerve damage through a safe surgery.
