Bimaxillary protrusion creates negative impressions

Most people view their own image through mirrors, making them pay more attention to their face viewed from the front. However, for others, the facial profile is as visible as the front view. Because the profile gives others a complete view of your facial dimensions, it plays a big role in creating your personal image.

Bimaxillary protrusion is one of the biggest factors that create a negative facial image. It creates unnatural facial feature proportions, making your face appear larger, causes nasolabial folds or chin-wrinkles, making you appear aged, and twists your mouth shape, creating a pouty or angered look.

Beyond creating aesthetic problems, it also comes with health issues (e.g., difficulty in chewing because of malocclusion, dental cavities, allergies from mouth breathing, etc.). Therefore, the cause behind the bimaxillary protrusion must be understood, and the protrusion itself must be corrected.

The cause must be precisely identified for proper surgical planning

Medically, bimaxillary protrusion refers to a state in which the mouth is protruded beyond the hypothetical line from the nose tip to the chin.

Most common causes include dental protrusion and ulitis protrusion. In the case of dental protrusion, basic orthodontic treatments can make improvements. However, ulitis protrusion is common in Asians as much as it comes in varied forms: it is important to precisely determine the cause and plan the surgery properly.

In BANOBAGI’s bimaxillary protrusion, the key is moving the “A-point”

The “A-point” is the spot where the nasal septum and the philtrum meet, viewed in profile.

Most Asian patients have bimaxillary protrusion that involves forward protrusion of the A-point, and this means that the ulitis itself is protruded as well. For more effective bimaxillary protrusion surgery, the focus must be on moving the A-point by osteotomizing the upper jaw, including the teeth.

BANOBAGI aims to move the A-point with certainty. With thorough surgical planning, we find a proper destination for the A-point before moving the jawbone: the results are more satisfying. Moreover, our precision-osteotomy preserves blood vessels and reduces tissue damage, providing safer and less risky surgery.

BANOBAGI considers both dental structure improvement and aesthetic satisfaction

Bimaxillary protrusion surgery can give you both proper dental structure and aesthetic improvement. However, the facial depth is determined by the relative height in the facial profile, and the nature of bimaxillary protrusion is different for everyone. Therefore, it is difficult to say that an improved jaw location always leads to aesthetically ideal results. If a patient receives bimaxillary protrusion surgery—expecting drastic aesthetic improvements—and is disappointed in the result, it is most likely because the patient received standardized surgery that only considers the functional improvements.

This is why BANOBAGI offers individualized bimaxillary protrusion surgeries through a detailed categorization of every individual bimaxillary protrusion case. This allows us to address your individual aesthetic complexes, all the while properly correcting your dental structure. BANOBAGI’s bimaxillary protrusion surgery is more satisfying with greater aesthetic improvements.

More satisfying results and quicker recovery: the key is post-surgery care

A bimaxillary protrusion surgery’s results can change, depending on the post-surgery care: because the expected results in the planning stage can only be brought out if the soft tissues (e.g., muscles, skin, etc.) properly settle onto the changed jaw shape.

Therefore, in bimaxillary protrusion surgery, recovery and swelling-care have as great impact on the results as the success of surgery itself. At BANOBAGI, you can take full advantage of our aftercare knowledge, built on extensive clinical experience and as systemized as our surgeries. We have created a treatment manual for every step and stage throughout the recovery, and we offer intensive treatment—such as Elastone Therapy*—using our post-surgery care equipment. More natural facial impressions and more effective facial structure improvement: they are the sources of our confidence.

Elastone Therapy

Ultrasound, stone therapy, and radiofrequency are used to reduce swelling, fortify immunity, and increase skin elasticity. An effective post-surgery care treatment is also provided, following square jaw reduction, cheekbone reshaping, double jaw surgery, and other facial contouring procedures.

  • Ultrasound
    Ultrasound

    Ultrasound, once in contact with the skin and the body, expands blood vessels and increases blood flow with micro-vibration and heat. This increases blood and lymph circulation, facilitating quicker recovery from swelling.

  • Stone Therapy
    Stone Therapy

    This thermotherapy uses heat-retaining native rock to increase immunity as well as relax the tense nerves and muscles. The treatment facilitates blood circulation, which rapidly cleanses the body of toxins and waste, leading to effective swelling prevention.

  • Radiofrequency Machine
    Radiofrequency Machine

    Radiofrequency is delivered into the deep tissues, creating deep heat. Deep heat stimulates collagen in the dermal layer, strengthens cell functions, and increases blood circulation and metabolism: effective for skin elasticity.

As the anesthetics wear off, patients may experience pain, but it will diminish over time.
The pain level during stitch removal or sterilization is that of a mild pinch.
Feverish sensations and pain caused by swelling can be addressed with the prescribed painkillers, and icing helps as well.
Pain and swelling will be kept under control through a systemized and continuous aftercare.
