After thorough radiological investigations, Maxillofacial Surgeon Dr. S.M. Balaji diagnosed the girl to have Binder’s syndrome or maxillo-nasal dysplasia in which the development of the nose and jaw is affected leading to an unusually flat, underdeveloped mid face. Dr. Balaji skillfully performed a combined jaw & nose correction surgery to correct the facial imbalance.
A costo-chondral graft was harvested and used to reconstruct the nose through an oral vestibular approach. Corrective jaw surgery for the upper and lower jaw was done to make the jaws proportionate and into accurate alignment. Since the procedures were done from inside the mouth, there was absolutely no scarring. With this combined rhinoplasty and jaw correction, the girl’s facial appearance improved dramatically. She was very happy to have a more pleasing appearance and balanced facial features without any scarring.
