PURPOSE The prediction of profile changes as a result of orthognathic surgery remains a problem during preoperative planning because of the different relative movements of the hard and soft tissues. This study analyzed the changes in soft tissue profile after sagittal split ramus osteotomy and mandibular setback. PATIENTS AND METHODS Soft tissue changes relative to hard tissue references were recorded by means of computer-supported measurements of preoperative and postoperative standardized… CONTINUE READING
