Distraction osteogenesis is now a standard procedure for hemifacial microsomia, and various methods have been described. However, it is sometimes difficult to obtain the horizontal occlusal plane and facial symmetry. This brief communication describes and discusses the usefulness of solid model simulation surgery for hemifacial microsomia.
