Abstract

Nasomaxillary hypoplasia clinically presents as a class lll deformity with hypoplasia or retrusion of the nasal bones and maxilla, which manifests as deficient projection of the nose.Lefort 2 osteotomy though introduced in 1950s, did not get its due attention till Henderson and Jackson published their landmark article, for the correction of Nasomaxillary hypoplasia in 1973. Accomplished surgeons can achieve a lot more in this rarely performed surgery when used in appropriate cases.
