Surgery first orthognathic surgery is one of the most fascinating advances in orthognathic surgery and involves a teamwork between craniofacial orthodontists and craniofacial plastic surgeons. One of the most rewarding aspects is the shortened treatment time as well as dramatic and immediate facial profile improvement before the follow up orthodontic treatment. However, the surgery is fraught with challenges for younger surgeons if finer technical steps are not followed accurately. The 3 D simulation is best done with craniofacial orthodontists who can help plan the post op orthodontic movements after the surgery. As a result of observing certain nuances, the procedure can be performed comfortably and symmetry achieved by a well-executed plan by the orthodontist- surgeon team to the immense benefit of the patients with facial asymmetry.
