Protrusion correction

 

What is Protrusion Correction?

Bimaxillary protrusion is a condition usually defined as protrusive and proclined (lean forward) upper and lower incisors (front teeth). It is commonly observed in African-American and Asian populations, but it is seen in almost every ethnic group. Because of the negative perception in most cultures, many patients with bimaxillary protrusion seek orthodontic care to decrease the gradient.

 The main goal of Protrusion Correction is to improve patient’s mouth by extracting four premolars followed by retraction of anterior teeth using a special medical technique. This process significantly refines your look and impression.

Protrusion Correction is Recommended...

  • If your mouth is bulging out
  • If you don't have volume in upper philtrum
  • If you have short chin
  • If you want to treat bimaxillary prognathism but hesitant to have orthognathic surgery

Operation Method

Through protrusion correction, you will have a more "sophisticated look". The procedure operates either through the inner parts of the mouth or nose.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How do you treat protrusion?

 In protrusion correction, carving is not included; a prosthesis is inserted to correct protrusion.

Q: Through where is the prosthesis inserted?

The prosthesis can be injected either into the nose or mouth. When the patient wants to correct their nose and mouth, the prosthesis is inserted through the nose. However, when patients only want to fix protrusion(nose only), the prosthesis is injected through the mouth.

Q: What type of prosthesis does Answer Plastic Surgery? Is there any feeling of irritation?

Silicon is most commonly used. The sense of irritation depends on the thickness of the material. Even though the prosthesis may be thick at first, it will feel like your skin after a period of adjustment.

Facts about this procedure

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will I have noticeable scarring after Alar Reduction? 

Generally, people do get scars around the mouth and nose after the operation. However, at Answer Plastic surgery, we use our ultra-fine equipment when suturing to minimize the scars. Over time, the scar will become unnoticeable.

 

Q: When do people get Nostril Reduction?

When people do not have enough alar tissue cells, it is difficult to have an alar base surgery. In this case, those who have large nostrils often choose to reduce their nostrils.

Q: In which cases is alar lifting recommended?

Alar lifting is recommended for those whose have droopy alars. When the alars are sagging compared to the nasal column (the section between the nostrils), nostrils seem to be exposed. By lifting the alars, the amount of exposure can be reduced.
