After birth, a baby’s brain develops very rapidly in the first 3 years. In the first 9 months it is expected to grow up to two times and in the third year it is expected to grow to almost three times. In order for the brain to adapt to the rapid growth of the skull, the skull bones remain separate from each other for 12-18 months with flexible fibrous tissues called “sutures” (fontanel). During birth, when necessary, the sutures overlap without causing damage to the brain. It protects the brain from trauma during the postnatal period and produces bone for the cranial bones to adapt to growth during brain growth. Small skull disorders that occur during birth are normal and recover very quickly.

The face is one of the most important parts of the body in every respect. In addition to its basic aesthetic appearance, it is the region where many vital functions such as eating, breathing, speaking, mimicry, taste, feeling, etc. are made. Anatomically; we see that the upper and lower jaws cover two thirds of the face when we distinguish between upper (forehead), middle (upper jaw-cheeks) and lower face (lower jaw). Jaw bones; unlike other bones, they have teeth on them and are in close co-operation with them. Corrective jaw surgery is the department of surgery that covers all diseases such as congenital-developmental diseases and trauma-tumors of this region.
