WHAT IS ORTHOGNATIC SURGEON
There are disorders in which the upper and lower jaws, which cause problems in terms of both functional and aesthetic appearance, are incompatible with each other and other formations on the face (nose, eyes, cheeks). These mismatches and disorders can be developmental or may occur as a result of diseases and accidents. Such people; they face both aesthetic, speech and nutritional problems. The branch of surgery that treats appearance and biting problems due to the incompatibility of the upper and lower jaw bones is called orthodontic surgery. Although there are such problems and disproportions in many patients who present to plastic surgeons with facial aesthetic concerns, patients may not have noticed this. For example, a patient with a complaint of nose size may also have problems with jaw sizes. Although shrinking the nose will contribute to the aesthetic appearance, a complete recovery may not be mentioned. It is important to remember that it is an aesthetic harmony! Our eyes perceive the face as a whole in proportions. True beauty depends more on the relationship and harmony of the parts than the structure of individual parts. By correcting the harmony between orthognatic surgery and facial bones, both functional and aesthetic improvement is achieved.
