Patients with facial asymmetry usually accompany with lip canting. Most of these patients came for orthognathic surgery combine orthodontic treatment for chin deviation and asymmetric facial problem. However, the improvement of lip canting after surgery is not as predictable as correction of chin deviation. From our literature review, the correlated factors of lip canting were discussed, and the relationship between improvement of lip canting with two jaw/ one jaw orthognathic surgery were reviewed.
