Bimaxillary protrusion (BP) is one of the most prevalent dentofacial deformities in the Asian population. Facial esthetics is the primary concern of these patients. Typical orthodontic treatment includes retraction of maxillary and mandibular incisors after extraction of the four first premolars, but this might not yield desired esthetic changes in the patient. Thus, orthognathic surgery such as anterior subapical osteotomies and extraction of premolars can be looked upon as an option to correct sagittal excess of the jaw bones and associated dental anomalies. This case report describes the treatment of a middle-aged woman with complaints of lip protrusion and unfavorable esthetics due to present malocclusion with the help of anterior maxillary and mandibular osteotomy procedure which provides a stable and viable treatment option for desired esthetic results.
