In brief: Oral Surgeon

Orthognathic surgery, or corrective jaw surgery, is routinely done by oral and maxillofacial surgeons.
It is done to correct developmental or acquired skeletal deformities of the upper or lower jaws. It's almost always done in conjunction with comprehensive orthodontic treatment to finalize the bite after the jaw is surgically repositioned.

Most commonly a maxillo-facial surgeon.
Occasionally a plastic or reconstructive surgeon and in rare cases a er trauma surgeon. It is best to have an oral surgeon work with an orthodontist.
