Abstract

INTRODUCTION:

Adverse effects in the nasolabial region should be anticipated after Le Fort I osteotomy. Intraoperative factors such as the extent of surgical dissection, type of closure and perinasal soft tissue reconstruction seem to influence soft tissue response. Attempts to control these changes have been made over the years and several techniques have been proposed.

MATERIALS AND METHODS:

The authors present a minimally invasive alternative surgical technique to control alar base widening as well as lip shortening.
