Internal wire suspensions were previously used in the management of maxillary trauma and orthognathic surgery, but currently the gold standard is rigid internal fixation with bone plates and screws. The authors report a case of bimaxillary osteotomy in a skeletal class III patient where a supplemental circum-zygomatic-mandibular suspension was done to stabilize the maxilla because of the instability after rigid internal fixation due to poor bone thickness.
