Question 20 - Questions regarding healing from MMA.
From: B. R.
I have a question for you regarding healing from MMA. A friend of mine recently had an MMA done, he did not need a huge amount of advancement on top so he had a pretty straight forward Lefort 1 and was only advanced 5mm forward.
He is 8 weeks post op and noticed that his maxilla was feeling quite loose. When he went to see his surgeon he told him that he has a maxillary "fibrous union" or "delayed union," We cannot find any info on this condition.
Can you tell me what could cause this or how this would happen? Is this a common thing? Also, what is the treatment for this? Will he have to have more surgery to fix it?
Thank you so much for your reply!
