Most of the facial muscles, giving rise to facial expressions, are started from the facial bone and connected to the facial skin. Therefore, the muscles can be damaged primarily upon incision and/or peeling of the facial skin and it may lead to the malfunction of other muscles as well.
Therefore, Banobagi Hospital tries to minimize damages on soft tissues and optimize the arrangement of the muscle and soft tissues, in turn minimizing any limitation on facial expressions.
Banobagi Hospital performs an operation after analyzing the facial structure and soft tissues of each patient via 3D CT scan, radio-autographs and others. In case of two-jaw surgery, it is important to do the osteotomy and bone fixation in an accurate and precise manner because a millimeter differences of movements and directions between jaw bone and teeth can form a different face shape.
The locations of nerve lines on the lower jaw are varied from person to person. Therefore, it is important to know a detail view of all the nerve lines in the face prior to the two-jaw surgery, due to damages on the nerve lines can cause sensory paralysis and facial numbness in a severe case. Banobagi Hospital has advanced surgical techniques to avoid facial nerves damages during the two jaw surgery.
Banobagi Hospital has extensive know-hows and experiences on the alignment of the muscles and soft tissues as well as surgical techniques to minimize damages on the soft tissues. With this, the limitation of patients’ facial expressions after two-jaw surgery is minimized.
