This procedure is more akin the surgeries the dentist does to straightened a severe overbite that braces alone may not correct. In this procedure the upper jawbone is cut and reset. Usually a few screws are used and a retainer is worn for several months to a year afterwards. With the pelvic bones, more permanent hardware is needed due to more stresses put on this structure. Remember, it keeps you upright when you walk.

I don't think messing around with the structure of the pelvis itself would be safe, as was just mentioned, you use that to walk/run.  As I understand it, it's just using the mass/size of the implant itself to add the overall width.

Hello Kendra
 
We are in the stage of waiting for the approval by the KFDA. We have the devices ready to be used in clinical trial.
 
KFDA regulation will be approved in approximately 3 months from now. Once the approval is done in S.Korea, pelvic Plasty will be available in 2019 spring in S.Korea only.
 
The surgery will be available in U.S after FDA regulation approval. 
 
Price of the surgery will be estimated as $14,000 in S.Korea.
(Estimated time for hospitalization is less than a week and you can immediately walk. There will be no limitations except wound care)

Dr Won is currently residing in S.Korea and if the patient is willing to travel, the surgery will be done in Konyang University Hospital.
 
If you are interested in the email/waitlist, please let us know your name and email. We will update on the waitlist information once the regulation is approved.
