Facial asymmetry can be caused by unilateral condylar hyperplasia. In such cases, it may be difficult to achieve symmetry since there is dentoalveolar compensation on the affected side, and the occlusal cant does not correspond to the frontal mandibular deviation. In the case presented, surgical orthodontic treatment and orthognathic surgery planning was accomplished for a patient with facial asymmetry due to condylar hyperplasia. The surgical plan was devised with particular attention to the severe dentoalveolar compensation. In this case, prior to the two-jaw surgery, the occlusal cant and frontal mandibular plane inclination was corrected through impaction of the left molar region by segmental osteotomy. Facial asymmetry and severe dentoalveolar compensation were successfully corrected after a unilateral segmental osteotomy and two-jaw surgery, resulting in a stable occlusal relationship and facial symmetry as well as good jaw function. Collaboration between the orthodontists and maxillofacial surgeons was essential for the successful treatment of the patient. (Angle Orthod. 2018;88:503-517.)
