Class III malocclusion is exhibited either due to excessive mandibular growth, deficient maxillary growth, or both. Neither growth modification nor camouflage offers a solution for patients with severe Class III malocclusion. Surgery to realign the jaws or reposition dentoalveolar segments is the possible and stable treatment option. A combination of orthodontic and orthognathic phases offers remarkable results along with enhanced psychosocial acceptance. In this case report, Lefort I osteotomy was performed with maxillary inferior repositioning and advancement in a 25-year-old patient with skeletal Class III.
