Brief Summary:
The primary objective of this clinical trial is to assess the influence of orthognathic surgery on facial soft tissue, such as changes (volume, linear, angular) of facial hard and soft tissue, in three dimensions, so enabling the setup of 3D normative value tables.

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. All changes (volumetric, linear or angular) of facial hard and soft tissue caused by orthognathic surgery at 1 months, 6 months, 12 months and 24 months.
