What are the phases of orthognathic surgery, before and after?

Before surgery, orthodontic treatment is necessary for a time so that, in this way, the teeth are in a correct position and aligned, and can then fit when the jaws are repositioned. However, previously, a study will be carried out to analyze the facial structure and decide which treatment is the most appropriate in order to achieve the

best results. It is the virtual planning of surgery or VSP (Virtual Surgical Planning) that allows us to perform surgery virtually on the computer, analyze the planning and once the movements have been optimized, print surgical splints that allow us to faithfully reproduce the previously planned movements. In addition, you will be able to see your surgery before performing it, with which you will perfectly understand the need to perform certain orthognathic movements.

During the intervention, the position and size of the maxillary bones will be modified. The surgery will be carried out under general anesthesia, and the patient will only have to be hospitalized between 24 and 48 hours, since the techniques used are minimally invasive and without external scars.

The patient must follow the post-surgical orthodontic treatment, in order to touch up the final details of the occlusion. At the end, retention appliances will be placed to prevent the teeth from shifting over time.

How is the recovery from orthognathic surgery in Barcelona?

As it is a rapid recovery treatment, the patient must return to their routine 10-15 days after the intervention. During the first month, the patient should follow a soft diet that allows him to eat without having to force his jaw.

What is the price of orthognathic surgery?

The price of this surgery will depend on each case. Depending on the patient’s condition, a shorter or longer orthodontic treatment will have to be done, and the surgery will be more or less complicated. The budget will be made once.
