The 24-year-old female patient (case 4) was diagnosed with HFM (type I): Her natural head position was inclined to the right to compensate for her chin deviation. She was treated using Le Fort I, bilateral sagittal split osteotomy, genioplasty, and mandibular angle reduction, without a second stage of fat injection. Her natural head position adjusted spontaneously after surgery. | Yamaguchi, K., Lonic, D., Ko, E. W.-C., & Lo, L.-J. (2017).
