This surgery is a well-known protruded lips surgery. Mainly teeth (the 4th ones from the middle, first premolars) beside the canine are extracted, and the bones there is ground. And the protruded alveolar bone and teeth are pushed in. This surgery is mainly performed if the upper and lower jaw have normal occlusion and the degree of protrusion is high (more than 4~5mm). This surgery requires a delicate technique and thorough pre-planning. A medical specialist in orthodontics creates a model of teeth and gums. Facial contouring and orthodontics medical specialists perform a Mock Surgery based on that model and specifically create a surgery plan.

How to process surgery?

The protruding alveolar bone and teeth make the lips protruded. Therefore, orthodontics alone is not enough to make a difference. In this situation, the bone itself needs to be corrected by a surgery. Pushing 'A point' (a protruded part of the alveolar bone beneath the philtrum of the upper jaw) inwards properly is the most important thing in protruded lips surgery. The protruded ‘A point’ causes a so-called ‘monkey mouth’ (longer and wider philtrum, thicker lips, exposed gum). DreamA Protruded Lips Surgery (pushing the 'A point' inwards properly) can solve these issues at one time. Dream Plastic Surgery's DreamA Protruded Lips Surgery completes a beautiful mouth shape with a thorough mock surgery and elaborate surgery planning. Our ‘One-Stop System’ provides systematic treatment services from dealing with the alveolar bone, teeth, upper and lower jaw generally (medical specialists in facial contouring and orthodontics cooperate on diagnosing) to an orthodontic treatment after surgery.

Process for the surgery

01. A total of 4 teeth (2 on each side) are extracted to push the upper and lower jaw in 02. After the mucous membrane is incided, the bones are incided and ground to make space for the gums 03. After pushing the bones in, the new occlusal surface is checked using the surgical wafer made in the mock surgery (a patient clenches this frame with the upper and lower teeth during the surgery) 04. If the chin was shifted as far as planned, then the bones are fixed

The features and merit of this operation

▶ Mock Surgery as Important as Real Surgery - mock surgery (virtual operation) In protruded lips surgery, treating a mouth shape as important as an eye shape in facial impression, facial impressions created can vary with a delicate difference. A mock surgery (using a real patient's gum model) as well as computer simulation are essential for dealing with the delicate difference successfully. A virtual operation is used to check if it would be possible to create a beautiful mouth shape without side effects (overcorrection and miscorrection). According to the mock surgery, if 'A point' (the most protruded part of alveolar beneath the philtrum) can be pushed in properly, the real surgery is expected to be successful. ▶ Effective Cooperation with Medical Specialist in Orthodontics on Diagnosing – cooperation with the dentist Protruded Lips Surgery needs an alveolar-bone shifting and orthodontics after surgery. Therefore, an effective cooperation with a medical specialist in orthodontics (responsible for it after surgery) on diagnosing is crucial. If a medical specialist in orthodontics participates in a virtual operation and creating an overall surgery plan, the results can be better. Dream Plastic Surgery provides meticulous care and more satisfactory surgery results through the cooperation with Dream Dentistry on diagnosing.
