Orthognatic maxillary surgery induces important changes in the nasolabial region and nose. The aim of this review is to systhematize these changes dependent on the direction of the maxillary movement and describe when these changes are favorable for the patient esthetics and when it is important to control those changes with diferent surgical techniques. Ocasionally a concomitant or subsequent rhinoplasty may be indicated.  (Rev Esp Ortod. 2005;35(3):217-228)

Key words:
