Radiographic analysis of the facial bones showed that his maxilla (upper jaw) was disproportionately large compared to the lower jaw which caused the upper jaw and teeth to be very protruding. Maxillofacial surgeon Dr. S.M. Balaji performed the corrective jaw surgery or orthognathic surgery. The excess bone from the upper jaw was removed & the jaw was set back in proper alignment with the lower jaw. Immediately following surgery his appearance improved with the more balanced features. The procedure was done from within the mouth so there were no scars. The man was very happy with his new, improved look.
