Abstract

Although facial deformity can accurately be described and classified, the treatment goal can be more difficult to define. Functional and esthetic endpoints calibrated to a set of normal facial proportions may achieve a "normal" face but one that is not necessarily beautiful. Results of orthognathic surgery can dramatically be improved by adding an aesthetic concept to the surgical plan. We can achieve a face with both stable occlusion and a beautiful look each time. Additional soft tissue procedures may be required to perfect the final balance and harmony of the face.
