We present a case report of early Le Fort I osteotomy with maxillary advancement retained postoperatively by Class III elastics anchored on miniplates in a growing patient with complete unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP). A 14-year-old boy who underwent orthognathic surgery at the pubertal growth spurt was presented. During surgery, Bollard miniplates were installed in the posterior region of the maxilla and in the anterior region of the mandible. Class III elastics anchored on miniplates were used at night (8-10 h) starting 60 days after surgery. The force of the elastics progressively increased from 100 g to 250 g. The elastics were replaced daily. The positive overjet remained stable over 15 months of postoperative follow-up. Maxillary advancement was adequately retained using Bollard miniplates and the facial profile remained stable until the end of facial growth.
