Our face is a key element in interpersonal communication. The first impression that we give immediately communicates diverse feelings and perceptions. Ideally, a beautiful smile combined with harmonious facial proportions will guarantee a pleasant and winning appearance, accompanying us on our journey through our private and professional lives. That is why it is understandable that more and more people who are seeking a better balance between their inner selves and their outward appearance are taking advantage of the options offered by modern medicine.

Reasons for surgery

There are many reasons for surgery in the maxillo-facial area: unfavourable growth patterns, malformation or the consequences of an injury may affect one or more elements of the facial architecture. Obstruction of free breathing through the nose or even interrupted breathing during the night can be caused by aggravating skeletal circumstances. Loss of teeth with the associated reduction of bone mass can mean significant challenges for the dentist in the provision of dental implants. These things do not have to be accepted as fate. Nowadays, well-established surgical techniques combined with modern methods can usually offer a tailor-made solution that will lead to the best possible functional and aesthetic result. Experience and a feeling for the individuality of each face play a crucial role in achieving or preserving harmony in the facial proportions and a natural appearance.
