Innovation in orthognathic surgery

Professor Hernandez-Alfaro and his team have presented an innovative technique that eliminates the unwanted effects of orthognathic surgery.

Despite being a technique that significantly improves the quality of life of the patient, orthognathic surgery of the upper jaw can have some unwanted effects on the operated area, such as the widening of the base of the nose and the thinning of the upper lip. These consequences have long worried the scientific community, which has spent years of research seeking to minimize them.

The team of Dr. Federico Hernandez-Alfaro has recently presented a new procedure that achieves the desired effect, as well as being minimally invasive in its implementation, and not entailing side effects or an increase in surgical time.

The study was presented at the prestigious website L'Orthodontie Française, official communication organ of the SFODF (Société Française d'Orthopédie Dento-Faciale) and reference journal in dento-facial orthodontics.You can find the full article in our Scientific Publications section under the title Ostéotomie de Le Fort 1: gérer les tissus mous pour contrôler les modifications du nez.
