Figure 1: Preoperative view of the patient – (a) Right lateral oblique view; (b and c) Intraoral view

Mentions: A 21-year-old male patient presented with a complaint of difficulty in chewing and inability to close the mouth. History revealed a gap arthroplasty for a right temporomandibular joint ankylosis at 17 years, a failed and eventful tissue expansion procedure for the right cheek defect at age 18 and a consequent cervicofacial flap and skin graft for oral lining followed by a mandibular osteotomy (right sagittal split and left intraoral vertical ramus osteotomy) for correction of the facial deformity at age 19. Currently presented with the following clinical scenario [Figure 1].
