She was a skeletal Class III patient, hyperdivergent, with maxillary hypoplasia, presenting right laterognasia, class III canine and molar, bilateral posterior cross bite to the right side and negative overbite in anterior side, lower midline deviation to the right. Treatment was conducted in three phases: pre-surgical, which included alignment, leveling dental decompensation, occlusal stability; surgical phase, bilateral sagittal osteotomy branch with 4 mm mandibular retrusion, chin surgery (7 mm impaction and chin advancement 3 mm) and maxillary surgery (osteotomy Lefort I, 8 mm of maxillary advancement); post-surgical phase, detailed and retention.
