Anterior maxillary osteotomy or ostectomy (AMO) is a safe, reliable, and easily adaptable procedure routinely performed in orthognathic surgery for the management of the dentoalveolar segment of the anterior maxilla. The anterior segmental maxillary osteotomy was first performed in 1921 by Cohn–Stock. Several modifications were done regarding approaches for AMO; however, Cupar's method is the most preferred approach by the surgeons and in practice since several decades. A novel midline split osteotomy is performed in combination with Cupar's method for superior and posterior repositioning of anterior maxillary segment in combination with immediate closure of diastema in this case report.
