There are cases where conventional orthodontics (removable aligners or metal braces) alone can't treat complex cases like bite misalignment, deformities of the jaw or mouth, and extreme overbites (malocclusion). Any of these issues may cause the chin to protrude or the jaw to become crooked, leading to aesthetic flaws and functional problems. Dr. Husam Elias is skilled in performing corrective jaw surgery (also known as orthognathic or simple jaw surgery) to fix these problems and restore your dental well-being. In this procedure at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts, the bone, cartilage, and tissue around the lower face can be manipulated, reshaped, and/or augmented so your teeth and jaw are properly aligned. Please schedule an appointment with our skilled team at our Los Angeles, CA office to learn more about corrective jaw surgery.

You may be a candidate for jaw surgery if your chin has developed improperly or out of proportion, for a misaligned bite, a crooked jawbone, face deformities, and other issues. Before developing your treatment program, Dr. Elias will start with a thorough examination. We will take digital x-rays of your mouth to develop your treatment plan. Your procedure will be performed with general anesthesia and could take a few hours to finish as it involves the manipulation of bone and cartilage. Cuts will be made into your jawbone so the pieces can be adjusted to the correct position. Surgical screws, plates, and wires will be used to keep your jaw in its position. Bone grafts could also be required to enlarge the shape of your jaw. We recommend you take about 1 – 3 weeks to recover and rest before slowly returning to work or school. It's important to follow all recovery instructions provided to you, including what medications to take, diet limitations, and the best way to rinse your mouth. It will take about 12 weeks for your jaw to fully heal, but we will schedule follow-up appointments to ensure you are healing properly.

I took my daughter in for a consult regarding getting her wisdom teeth removed. Everyone was very nice and explained everything in detail. Dr. Pouya is very nice and explained the whole process to us from beginning to end. They were nice enough to schedule her surgery the following week since I wanted her to recover before she went back to school. I am very pleased with the whole office and how well the surgery went. I will definitely recommend Dr. Pouya to anyone needed their wisdom teeth removed.

Fantastic experience start to finish. I had Asian Rhinoplasty by Dr Elias and can not be happier. I love my nose so much, I get compliments from my friends about how cute and how it fits my face well.

I had Silicone breast implants by Dr Elias, I went from flat to fab in under an hour, I love my new addition:)I came to Dr Elias as referral from a friend of mine who had hers done by him a few years ago and they still looked fantastic, so I decided to follow him on IG to see his work, it didn’t take long before I booked a consultation with him. He was thorough, knowledgeable and reasonably priced compared to other places I consulted with in the past. I’m extremely happy with my results, post op care was great, he saw me so many times to check the healing of my surgery. I can’t say enough about my results. I love ’em..

My experience with this office was absolutely stellar. Firstly, the staff welcomes you warmly when you arrive. Diana (doctor’s assistant) met me in the exam room.  Diana has a way of instantly making you feel comfortable and any nervousness you may be feeling is dissipated.... Because you can’t stop laughing. Then enters Dr. Elias.... He is extremely approachable, honest, and knowledgeable. It doesn’t hurt that he has multiple degrees. I am ecstatic that I found this business:

Surgery for jaw correction doesn't just fix cosmetic problems, which may be brought about by a recessed, crooked, or protruding chin, but it also restores the proper function of the teeth and can help improve breathing and speech. Oral and maxillofacial surgeon Dr. Husam Elias is highly skilled at performing jaw surgery. If you're in Los Angeles, CA, we encourage you to make a consultation with us at Southern California Center for Surgical Arts.
