Neurological Exam Test

Detailed and accurate examination
is conducted to prevent side
effects and aftereffects in
facial contouring surgery!

Neurological Exam, why are they important?

The lower facial jaw contains sensory nerves with motor functions, which is why it is utmost crucial to avoid the nerve line during the surgical procedure to allow natural mouth movements and to prevent damaging the nerves.
For precise identification of sensory nerves in the lower jaw, tests must be conducted as the bone not only support and allow body movements, it also protects the nerves. If a patient is considering a facial bone contouring surgery, neurological exam and bone density test must be conducted to prevent side effect and aftereffect after the surgery.
At GNG Hospital, neurological exam and bone density test are carried out to provide accurate consultation-surgery-and recovery.

Neurological Exam

Why is neurological exam necessary for facial bone contouring surgery?

If the lower jaw is overly resected for patients whose nerve line is positioned low to prioritize aesthetic improvement, it would damage the nerve line and result sensory loss. To avoid this, neurological test must be performed to ensure no nerve is damaged during surgery and also to create precise surgery plan and resection area.

Three-dimensional nerve pathway analysis through 3D-CT

At GNG hospital, neurological examination is conducted to determine the possibility of getting the surgery done and also to identify ideal resection line. 3D-CT and panoramic X-ray analysis are also done to determine the facial nerve pathway. After that, an appropriate resection line and ideal surgery plan and design is designed and finalized.

Once nerve pathway is identified,

  • No chance of sensory loss

  • No chance of nerve damage

  • Customized surgerydesign can be made

  • Safe surgery can be conducted

  • Quicker recovery can be made
