Jaw Reduction and Chin Contouring
Create Facial Harmony.
Soften and refine the shape of your face.
Jaw reduction and chin contouring is performed to slenderize the lower third of the face by addressing the deepest layer of the face, the bone.
During your one-on-one consultation, Dr. Park / Dr. Hu will listen to your concerns and develop a fully customized treatment plan to help you achieve your aesthetic goals. There are multiple factors that contribute to your face shape, and all of these will be taken into consideration when creating a tailored approach. Depending on your anatomy, a 3D CT scan may be obtained for preoperative planning.
When the jaw appears to be too wide from a frontal view, the outer part of the bone is shaved off. Whether this is by the angles of the jaw or the central chin will depend on the ultimate face shape you are trying to achieve. Several incisions are made inside the mouth to allow access to the bone that needs to be contoured and are closed at the end of the procedure with sutures that dissolve.
After surgery, you will have tenderness and swelling, which is normal and typically diminishes by two weeks. For the first week, stick to a soft diet and refrain from eating anything that is too hot or has sharp edges. Any sutures that are not fully dissolved are removed on Day 10. By the second week, the majority of swelling will have resolved, at which time the changes to your new chin and jawline become obvious.
