Macroglossia is defined as an increase in volume of the movable part and/or the base of the tongue. This condition is responsible for many functional (phonatory, masticatory, occlusal, orthodontic, and gustatory) and psychological disorders. A well-planned surgical intervention may improve things. We present in this technical note in which the results of a reduction glossoplasty using a modified Morgan technique was performed on three young patients with true congenital macroglossia. The technique is discussed in detail.
Key words: macroglossia / glossoplasty / phonation / malocclusion
