Better age for treatment




Each case is unique! The surgery is anticipated or prorogated according to the kind of problem. For instance: if the chin is too far forward (prognathism), it is better to wait until the growth phase is ended and then to have the surgery done, with the aim of avoiding risks of relapse. On the other hand, if the chin is underdeveloped, the surgery can be anticipated. The best age keeps being the young adult, though we have been treating young teenagers and adults over 40 years old without any problem.
