Skeletal Class III malocclusion in an adult patient presents a challenge to the operator as it involves a variety of features. The case report presented here shows a combination of surgically assisted rapid palatal expansion and mandibular set back with bilateral sagittal split osteotomy. The technique used for maxillary expansion was minimally invasive as the patient's age gave a leeway for using a different surgical approach.
