Concerns, motivation, and experience of orthognathic surgery patients: a retrospective study of 152 patients

Athanasiou/Melsen/Eriksen

Patient perceptions and motivations for undergoing orthognathic surgery were evaluated retrospectively by a 15-item self-administered questionnaire. Surgical risk was the major reservation concerning having an operation, and change in appearance and cost of treatment were of next greatest concern. Of the 152 patients, 78.3% would elect to have surgery again. Female patients desired improvement in appearance more than male patients.
