A transfacial approach for infraorbital nerve exploration and maxillary surgery has been developed, allowing for good visual access as far posteriorly as the foramen rotundum and anterior maxillary region. This allows for infraorbital osteotomies, peripheral nerve grafting, neurolysis procedures, or combined maxillofacial-neurosurgical procedures with gasserian ganglion exploration and/or grafting. The procedure affords maximum surgical accessibility with good postoperative healing and minimal concerns about potential oral contamination.
