Abstract

The psychologic and behavioral changes that may occur with the impact of orthognathic surgery on the physical appearance of an identical twin set have been addressed. This unique situation has not been discussed in the literature with respect to reconstructive or cosmetic facial surgery. A report on elective orthognathic surgery performed on identical twins and the subsequent impact on the twin relationship due to alterations of "self-image phenomenon" is given. Such an impact was a consideration in this case. Further collective study in this area is needed but is difficult to obtain because of the rarity of occurrence of this type of case.
