My daughter has left coronal CS, and is going to have surgery in October. My CFS said that they have started research and have notice the high percent of children that have had to come back for more surgeries to fix the face again. So, they have started overcorrecting the effected side, on my daughter it is the left eye because it is pulled so much higher. Then when the bones want to revert to they way they were it pull in line with the other side. Have any of you heard of this. I think it is farely new. I have noticed there are a lot of you that are having to go back for other surgeries. I would just like to know if any of you have heard of it. Thanks.

No, I haven't heard of that. Sounds logical though if they can predict that the overcorrected side will indeed revert. How long does that take? Are you going to use that procedure?

Yes, we will get it done. I have found one other patient that had it done in Febuary, and her doctor did the same thing. I was glad to find her. Maybe there is hope for the future. Miriam's CFS said that by the time she is 5 or so that we shouldn't even be able to tell that she had surgery or that anything was wrong.

My son's plastic surgeon also overcorrected on the affected side. It was more prominent for the first few months, but now looks "normal". He is now 7 months post op.

I haven't really heard of overcorrection but it does make sense. Keep us posted!!

I also haven't heard of the 'over correction'- does make sense though. I would wonder what percentage of coronals have to go back for a 2nd surgery (we were one) and if it's not 100% (which I don't believe it is), why they over-correct all of them? If the child's bones done 'revert'- do they have to go in and correct the over-correction?
All the what-if's in these surgeries...uggg!

I agree with the what if's. I think that is why the waiting is killing me. There are so many things that I want to know NOW and I can't until they do the surgery.
