Introduction. Prognathism is an occlusal-maxillofacial
defect caused by excessive growth of the mandible in its
anterior part in comparison to the size of the maxilla.
Incorrect proportions of the face have a decisive impact
on the deterioration of facial aesthetics, resulting in
the fact that people with this defect are perceived by the
society as less interesting and less attractive. Aim of
the study. To assess the degree of patients’ satisfaction
with the results of surgical treatment of prognathism,
their appearance and satisfaction with life after
orthognathic surgery. Material and method. The study
included 53 people aged 17-51 years who agreed to
participate in the survey. The study group consisted
of 28 women and 25 men. Results. All patients were
satisfied or very satisfied with the outcome of surgical
treatment. Analyzing the responses to the questions in
the survey it was found that women are more likely
than men to perceive their facial appearance after
the surgery as “good” or “very good”, and are less
likely to evaluate it as “average”. Furthermore, it was
shown that people who declared an increase in selfconfidence
after surgery were also more satisfied with
their own image. Greater increase in self-confidence
was also associated with greater ease in making
new relationships. Conclusions. Positive subjective
assessment of the outcome of treatment affects the level of satisfaction with life of people after orthognathic
surgery. The average value of life satisfaction in
patients after surgery is higher than the average life
satisfaction in a reference population of adults in
Poland.
