Green: Inferior alveolar nerve.
Red: cut line of the surgery.
Basically it's like an extended side wing but with one main difference when it comes to making the jaw wider: you can push the jaw angle out like a pendulum instead of getting this weird step off that a side wing usually creates.
Left side: classic chin wing widening in the jaw angle area.
Right side: the osteotomy I have proposed.
TMJ stays in the same place in both cases so... why has nobody ever done it the way I suggested?
I asked Dr andreishchev maybe he responds.
