Abstract

Background: Most patients treated with orthognathic surgery for facial asymmetry would value improvement in residual soft-Tissue asymmetry. Autologous fat transfer is widely used to augment facial soft tissue. The authors assessed the effect of combining orthognathic surgery with autologous fat transfer for treating patients with facial asymmetry. Methods: In this retrospective study, 15 consecutive adults underwent combined orthognathic surgery and autologous fat transfer between January of 2013 and December of 2015. Lower facial profile symmetry was assessed using postoperative standard frontal photographs. Results: Lower facial symmetry was much improved by combining orthognathic surgery and autologous fat injection. Conclusion: The combined use of orthognathic surgery and autologous fat transfer is a promising technique for improving facial symmetry in patients with facial asymmetry.
