Bones forming the upper jaw, lower jaw, cheeks, forehead and nose make up the primary bones of the face. The upper jaw bone is called Maxilla. A Maxillo-facial Surgeon performs procedures to correct abnormalities in these areas, that result from trauma, birth abnormalities and also for cosmetic/ beauty purposes.
Cleft Lip & Palate Surgery
Improper development of upper lip or roof of mouth is called Cleft Lip or Cleft Palate. Surgery helps to improve the childs quality of life by assuring normal speech development as well as minimizing growth disturbances.
Jaw Alignment Surgery
For some people, not only do the teeth seem crooked but misalignment of the jaws may also be noted. This can either be a defect from birth or may result from trauma. Correction of the defect ensures healthier bite and better speech.
Facial Cosmetic Surgery
