Corrective Jaw surgery or Orthognathic surgery is a part of Plastic and Maxillofacial surgery where the bones of the upper or lower jaw or both are moved to either realign the position of teeth or improve the appearance of the face.
Dr Vybhav Deraje teams up with Orthodontists, Speech therapists and Virtual surgical planning software companies to provide this service to patients requiring such surgery.
Lefort I maxillary osteotomy
In this operation, cuts are made in the upper jaw (maxilla) and the bone is moved forwards, backwards, upwards or downwards depending upon the deformity and then fixed with titanium plates and screws in the new position.
Bilateral sagittal split osteotomy of mandible (BSSO)
In this operation, cuts are made in the lower jaw (mandible) and the bone is moved forwards, backwards, sideways or rotated upwards depending on the deformity and then fixed with titanium plates and screws in the new position.
Double jaw surgery
It is a combination of the above procedures which involves surgery on both maxilla and mandible.
In this operation, cuts are made in the chin (central) region of the lower jaw and the bone moved forwards, backwards, upwards or downwards depending upon the deformity.
All surgeries involve cuts on the inside of the mouth, which leaves no external skin scars. These surgeries involve 3-4 days of hospital admission including 1 day of ICU stay. Patients may also need blood transfusions in some occasions.
Look at what our patients have to say about their experiences with us.
Very comfortable to deal with. He clearly explains the condition and builds confidence. Also clarifies all your questions with patience. Highly recommended. Thank u sir.
Amazing doctor. Explained things thoroughly during treatment. Made my deep cut mark on cheek fully disappear, which I never thought would happen.
I was exceedingly comfortable during the surgery and Dr. Deraje is a wonderful surgeon. He also assisted me in getting a certificate promptly for my injury. My scars have healed perfectly too.
I met with an accident and surgery done for my finger tip. Vybhav did very well and I didn’t expect that my finger tip would survive. He has done very well and helpful person as well.
