Figure 1: (a) Case of left side hemifacial microsomia showing deviation of the mandible to left side. Note the change in lip cant level. (b) Measurement of occlusal cant - Note the loss of occlusal plane parallelism to papillary plane. (c) Preoperative three-dimensional computed tomography showing left side hypoplasia. (d) Preoperative orthopantomograph showing the hypoplastic left mandible angle, ramus with deficient height. (e) Cortical cuts made parallel to the lower border of the mandible, univector distractor fixed to the ramus perpendicular to the posterior border of the mandible. (f) Maxillary Le Fort I osteotomy done and the maxilla hinged on the unaffected side
