Soft tissue response to anterior maxillary osteotomy

Ayoub/Mostafa/Mofty

The soft tissue profile adaptation to anterior maxillary intrusion was evaluated by comparing preoperative and 6-month postoperative cephalograms of ten adult patients. Holdaway's soft tissue analysis was the method utilized for profile evaluation. Lip protrusion and interlabial gap were decreased significantly and acceptable lip competency was provided postoperatively. Other factors also played a role in controlling the final soft tissue appearance.
