Surgery to correct "vertical" growth possible?  


Surgical procedures can be are used to move bones forwards (advance them). But, while this reduces the mandible plane angle does it really correct the vertical growth, I mean that being said forwards growth regardless of the height is always welcome. So, could this also mean that through nonsurgical treatment "upwards" growth in the sense of shortening should also not be the goal, instad focusing on forwards and outwards growth only?

Can't they shave part of the lower maxilla and rotate up in certain surgeries, along with the mandable being rotated up. Super expensive usually unless it's what your surgeon decides is medically necessary and it's covered by insurance.

They can move forwards and shave "excess downwards growth" of maxilla and move it upwards. that's a bimax with ccw rotation.

For research and dissemination I will be collecting in this community the adult expansion, cranial adjustment, NCR, and face-pulling results. I implore our community users to keep accurate records for themselves and others; these can include dental/palate impressions, before/after pictures, X-Rays and 3D scans.

The purpose of this collection is for use as evidence for theories proposed here. This collection will only be re-posted on this community and will not be submitted anywhere else.

For those looking into expansion and movement in the near future, please consider keeping records for your own sake and for others. Pictures of dental impressions alone can be very helpful.

If you have successfully completed any expansion/movement of facial bones and have any of the above records, please submit them to the community with your personal story of what you did and what the results were (use multiple posts if necessary). Palate expansion, Maxilla movement up and forward, development of the orbital rims, zygomatic, and mandible / jawline are of specific interest. Please ensure that pictures are taken with the same angle, distance, and lighting: This will allow the community to see sharper jawline, higher cheekbones, decrease in dark circles under eyes, changes in nose shape, a more oval face, and improved symmetry.

If you wish to share anonymously, please send me a personal message and we will arrange an anonymous transfer. If you do not have any records to share,  your personal experience is also very valuable. Please tell us what you have done and what the results were.

Your input could help many, many people
