About this case

Beatice is a nice and open girl, enbracing the world. She felt her face was too longue, too much gingival display, and too small chin. She was first treated presurgically withe braces and  the wisdom were removed.
Once well prepared orthodontically it was time for the trimax surgery: Lefort I intrusion (vertical shortening),
Lower jaw advancement and genioplasty advancement. Seldon I had a patient so happy with the result. Each time she kept me telling what a life changer the operation was, annd how it opened her live.
