Abstract

This article examines the application of 3D fusion of postoperative anatomy superimposed upon preoperative anatomy to evaluate the changes in soft tissues relative to fixed bony structures. The value of 3D analysis is to predict and quantitatively measure the soft tissue changes associated with skeletal orthognathic surgery. An example is shown of changes in the upper lip that occur after Le Fort I osteotomy, illustrating how these soft tissue changes can be measures with the 3D software. Uses and future applications of this technology are described.
