An 18-year-old woman presented for evaluation of her dental occlusion. She presented with “long face syndrome” with excessive midface height, excessive dental show in repose, and malocclusion with anterior open bite (Fig 1). She was scheduled for an impaction LeFort I osteotomy with bilateral sagittal split osteotomies. Virtual surgical planning (VSP) was utilized for operative planning (Figs 2 and 3).
