Bimaxillary surgery is often indicated to correct a wide range of maxillomandibular malreltionships. The traditional method of performing bimaxillary surgery has always been to reposition the maxilla first, stabilize it, and then reposition the mandible. However, rigid internal fixation has allowed a change in this classical sequencing whereby the mandible is first repositioned and stabilized, followed by repositioning the maxilla. Either of the surgical sequences can produce similar outcomes when properly planned and executed in the vast majority of bimaxillary cases. The sequence will therefore largely be at the whim of the surgeon. However, there are some cases that are more appropriately and accurately performed in a sequence whereby the mandible is first repositioned and stabilized. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss about sequencing in bimaxillary surgery.
