GNG Neurological Exam

Detailed and accurate examinations are conducted to prevent
side effects and after effects in facial contouring surgery!

Neurological Exams, why are they important?

The lower facial jaw contains sensory nerves with motor functions, which is why it is very crucial to avoid the nerve lines during the surgical procedure to allow natural mouth movement and to prevent damaging the nerves. For a precise identification of the sensory nerves in the lower jaw, tests must be conducted as the bone not only supports and allows body movements, it also protects the nerves. If a patient is considering facial bone contouring surgery, neurological exams and bone density tests must be conducted to prevent side effects and after effects post-surgery. At GNG Hospital, neurological exam and bone density tests are carried out to provide an 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 lines are positioned low to prioritize aesthetic improvement, it would damage the nerve lines and result in sensory loss. To avoid this, neurological tests must be performed to ensure no nerve is damaged during surgery and also to create a precise surgery plan and resection area.

Three-dimensional nerve pathway analysis through 3D-CT

At GNG Hospital, a neurological examination is conducted to determine the possibility of getting the surgery done and also to identify the ideal resection line. 3D-CT and panoramic X-ray analysis are also done to determine the facial nerve pathway. Afterwards, 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
