What is Double Jaw Surgery?

Double jaw (Two jaw) surgery involves cutting the upper and lower jaw to correct the abnormal form of the jaw, such as malocclusion, jutting chin, protruding mouth, micrognathia, long face, and facial asymmetry. It is a method of jaw corrective plastic surgery that is securely fixed by moving it to an aesthetically ideal position.

Features of JW's Double Jaw Surgery

#1 | Double jaw surgery prior to braces

Patients can have the advantage of having double jaw surgery first and then having orthodontic treatment after surgery, which shortens the overall treatment period. This is a method of aligning the face bone through surgery with a jutting jaw, which was difficult to improve by correcting it alone and using an orthodontic treatment to fix the occlusion.

Previous double jaw surgery requires one and a half years of braces before the surgery, but now we can perform double jaw surgery prior to braces.
