Surgical correction of facial asimetries-functional and aesthetical results

Facial asymmetries are considerably rare deformities requiring comprehensive approach in planning and treatment. The study included 44 patients treated between 2001 and 2010. Data were collected regarding gender, age, type of surgery. Surgical results were evaluated subjectively and objectively. Patients evaluated the success of surgical correction with the use of numerical scale, and (1) maxillofacial surgeon and (2) residents using a visual analogue scale (VAS). Collected data were statistically analyzed using Spearman’s rank correlation coefficient and Pearson correlation coefficient. The age of patients ranged from 7 to 36 years, average 19 years, of which 73.07% man, and 26.93% woman. All patients underwent preoperative and postoperative orthodontic preparation. The most common asymmetry was mandibular laterognathia as a part of prognathism and bimaxillar deformities and the least common are hyperplasia and hypoplasia of the mandibular condyle. In some cases multiple corrections were performed.

Conclussion: This research showed that there is a significant correlation between the aesthetic and functional outcome of surgery. Patients were satisfied with the aesthetic and functional outcome of the operation which led to an increase in their self confidence.
