PRE-CONGRESS COURSE: Chinwing osteotomy as alternative to orthognathic surgery to correct skeletal deformities: A new facial concept
A new technique for an extended genioplasty, the mandibular wing osteotomy is presented step by step. This osteotomy allows correcting the position of the chin prominence, to change the aspect of the divergence in the mandibular angle and to achieve a lip competence in cases where it is needed. All these movements of the lower border of the mandible can be performed completely independently from the positioning of the bases that is necessary for the correction of the malocclusion.
