What is Orthognathic Facial Surgeries?

Orthognathic facial surgeries, commonly known as orthognathic surgery or jaw surgery, are specialized surgical procedures that focus on correcting significant dental and skeletal irregularities affecting the alignment of the jaws and teeth. These surgeries are performed to improve both the functional and aesthetic aspects of a person’s facial structure and bite.

Orthognathic surgery typically involves precise surgical repositioning of the upper jaw (maxilla), lower jaw (mandible), or both, to achieve a more harmonious and functional bite. It is often performed in collaboration with orthodontic treatment to ensure the best possible results.

The goals of orthognathic surgery include improving facial aesthetics, bite function, speech, and overall oral health. Patients considering this type of surgery undergo a comprehensive evaluation and treatment planning with a team of oral and maxillofacial surgeons, orthodontists, and other specialists to determine the most appropriate approach to address their specific needs.

At Dr. Shashi’s Dental Studio, we provide the best and most cost-effective Orthognathic Facial surgery in Hyderabad putting your worries about your smile over.

Facial Asymmetry

When there is a noticeable lack of symmetry in the face due to jaw misalignments.

Orthodontic Challenges

When orthodontic treatments alone are insufficient to correct complex dental and jaw issues.

Bite Problems

Individuals with difficulty in biting, chewing, and speaking due to jaw misalignments.

Sleep Apnea

For patients with obstructive sleep apnea, where jaw surgery can help improve airway passage and alleviate sleep apnea symptoms.

Injury or Trauma

Receding Chin or Protruding Jaw

For individuals with aesthetic concerns related to the chin or jaw position.

Procedure for Orthognathic surgery in Hyderabad​ at Dr Shashi’s Dental Studio

At our dental studio the initial consultation is a crucial phase of the treatment, providing the opportunity to meet with our expert team, which includes a maxillofacial surgeon and an orthodontist.
During this consultation, our doctor’s will evaluate your expectations and establish a diagnosis. This may involve taking photographs, dental impressions for study models, and obtaining x-rays or CT scans necessary to assess your specific case.
If your condition necessitates surgical intervention, your doctor will provide a comprehensive explanation of the expected outcomes, the required timeframe, and any associated risks.
It is common to require orthodontic treatment both before and after the surgery. The use of braces is essential to properly align the teeth, ensuring they come together correctly following the operation.

Process of Performing Orthognathic Surgery

The surgery can involve the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both jaws (known as bimaxillary osteotomy) in most cases.
Importantly, all surgical procedures are conducted entirely from within the mouth, ensuring no visible external scars.
Jaw repositioning is achieved using small titanium plates and screws, which remain hidden beneath the gum line and are not visible within the mouth.
Typically, after the surgery, the teeth are not wired together; instead, small elastic bands are used between the upper and lower braces to guide the teeth into their new alignment within a day or so.
Note - Anesthetic Will Be Used during Surgery

Undergoing surgery involves the administration of a general anesthetic and admission to a hospital.

Preparation for Your Surgery

Your surgeon will provide guidance on how to prepare for your procedure. For instance:

Certain medications you are taking may require special considerations.
If you are a smoker, it is strongly recommended that you cease smoking, as it significantly elevates the risk of wound infection and can impede your recovery.
Given that a general anesthetic will be used, you will be instructed to adhere to fasting guidelines, which entail abstaining from food and drink for several hours before the procedure. The hospital will provide you with specific instructions prior to your admission date.
Following the surgery, most patients will typically spend two nights in the hospital, and it is advisable to plan for a two-week absence from work after your discharge.

Precautions after Surgery

Avoiding smoking and alcohol consumption for a minimum of one month post-surgery is strongly recommended.
Jaw surgery is a significant procedure, and it is crucial to observe proper precautions, including:
Refraining from taking aspirin and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) for a minimum of five days before the surgery
Administering antibiotics before any dental procedures that carry a risk of infection, such as tooth extraction or gum surgery.
Diligently following all postoperative instructions provided by your surgeon.
Maintaining a soft-food diet for at least one week following the surgery.
Rinsing your mouth with saltwater and steering clear of acidic foods and beverages, such as citrus fruits and juices, for at least one month after the operation.
Attend all follow-up appointments with your dentist as scheduled to monitor your recovery and address any concerns.

What is the recovery time for Orthognathic or Jaw Surgeries?

Post-surgery, the patient may experience swelling and bruising, which will progressively diminish within the initial 2 to 3 weeks.
For lower jaw procedures, temporary numbness in the lower lip is relatively common, persisting for a few weeks or months in some cases. In a minority of instances, residual numbness may persist, but it will not impede lip movement.
It's important to note that each patient's recovery timeline can vary. Complete bone healing typically takes approximately 4 to 6 weeks, while facial muscle adaptation may require 3 to 4 months.

What are the Risks and Potential Issues?

This procedure is typically very safe and is routinely performed by specialized and experienced surgeons at FMS. While complications in such surgeries are fortunately rare and may not be applicable to your case, it is essential that you are informed about potential risks. These may encompass:

On occasion, you may experience temporary numbness in the lips immediately after the procedure, similar to the sensation of receiving a local anesthetic injection at the dentist's office. Very rarely, full sensation may not return. (However, the lip's appearance and movement remain normal, and discomfort is exceptionally uncommon).
Surgical Relapse
Most patients do not experience significant relapse. However, individuals undergoing complex surgery (involving movements of 10mm or more in one jaw, those with a history of a cleft palate, or individuals with a particularly unusual bite) may be at a higher risk of relapse. If relapse does occur, it is exceptionally rare for it to be significant. Your Consultant will discuss the specific risks related to your case.
Bite Adjustment
In rare instances, additional adjustments to the bite may be required.
The small fixation plates are typically left in place permanently. In fewer than 10% of cases, plate removal may be necessary if an infection occurs.

Frequently Ask Questions

What Are the Risks of Jaw Reconstruction Surgery?

Jaw reconstruction surgery is generally a safe procedure aimed at realigning or correcting the positioning of your teeth and jaw. Various surgical approaches are available based on your specific condition, with treatment plans determined collaboratively by an orthodontist and a surgeon. While the surgery is typically safe, your doctor will provide information on associated risks, which are inherent to any surgical procedure. Some of these potential risks include:


  • Excessive bleeding
  • Infection at the surgical site
  • Adverse reactions to anesthesia
  • Nerve injury in the jaw area
  • Jawbone fractures
  • Persistent or new temporomandibular joint (TMJ) pain
Will My Facial Shape Change After Jaw Surgery?

Jaw surgery may alter the appearance and shape of your face, with noticeable changes becoming apparent as swelling subsides.

Will I Encounter Difficulty Eating After Jaw Surgery?

During the initial two to three weeks following jaw surgery, your jaw may be wired, potentially causing challenges with eating, speaking, and tooth brushing. A liquid diet may be recommended for a few days to aid in a smoother recovery.

What Is the Recovery Period for Jaw Surgery?

The recovery timeline following jaw surgery varies depending on the specific procedure. In general, it may take 6-8 weeks to recuperate from various types of jaw surgery. For the initial 10 days, you may experience facial pain and swelling, with a return to regular daily activities typically taking about a month. Consumption of soft foods is often recommended to facilitate faster healing.

What Is the Most Common Complication After Orthognathic Surgery?

Intermaxillary fixation is often necessary following orthognathic surgery or facial bone fracture surgery. Severe bleeding and edema (swelling) are common post-surgery, and nausea and vomiting can pose risks to patients.

What Are the Do's and Don'ts After Jaw Surgery?

During the first week following jaw surgery, it is advisable to ease back into light housework and daily activities, which can aid in a quicker recovery and improved well-being. Contact sports or sports involving a ball should be avoided for a minimum of 12 weeks. Keep in mind that full healing of your jaws may take 8-12 weeks.

How Long After Jaw Surgery Can You Resume Normal Eating?

Typically, after 6-8 weeks, you can gradually transition to more regular chewing, exercising caution (avoiding very hard foods for an additional 1-2 months, such as pizza, apples, raw carrots, nuts, etc.).

What Foods Should You Avoid After Jaw Surgery?

Around 2 months into your recovery, a transition to a soft-food or soft-chew diet is recommended (with some variation of about a week). Foods that are crunchy or require vigorous chewing should be avoided during this phase to prevent potential harm to your jaw and to support the healing process.
