An overdeveloped lower jaw or a square jaw is generally associated with masculinity and makes your face look big and fierce.
By correcting a square jaw, you can attain a smaller and more beautiful face. In addition, your face will feature gentle contours and your neck will look much longer.
JW’s V-line Surgery creates the best face shape for you by considering your jawline, its shape, and length, instead of simply cutting the jawbone.
In V-line Surgery, it is important to create a beautiful jaw shape that is harmonized with the face, instead of focusing on reducing the size of the jaw.
Long-curve square jaw ostectomy is an operation that cuts the lower jaw in a long curve from the under-ear part to the mouth corner. This operation changes a square lower jaw to a smooth and beautiful jawline both at the front and side.
V-line Surgery is applicable to those whose jaw is severely asymmetric.
|Type||Long-curve Square Jaw Ostectomy||Mandibular Angles Ostectomy|
|Surgical sites||The jawbone is cut from the angular parts under the ears to the corners of the mouth.||The angular parts under the ears are removed.|
|Scar||Incisions are made inside the mouth so that the scars cannot be seen.||Incisions are made behind the ears and the scars are visible.|
|Effects||A slim and beautiful face shape both at the front and the side.||A slim jawline from the side.|
|Jawline||A smooth V-shaped jawline without any angles||Additional angles may be generated.|
T-shaped ostectomy is generally applied to those who have a wide square jaw. The front jawbone is cut in a T-shape and tightened inwards. T-shaped ostectomy that reduces the width of the jaw is effective for creating a slim and beautiful V-shaped jawline.
Human bones consist of three layers: outer cortical bone, cancellous bone, and inner cortical bone. Generally, cortical bones refer to the hardest bone structure, the so-called outer cortical bones. By only cutting the outer cortical bone layer, we can create a beautiful face shape.
As you would peel a thick banana skin, we cut the outer cortical bone to create a slim jawline. Although the outer cortical bone is only cut about 2mm, it makes a big difference on a full face. If the patient has overdeveloped muscles or fat, they need to be removed as well for better effects. If cortical bones adjacent to the skin are not properly cut, the patient may experience side effects such as uneven skin or other angles on the face.
Therefore, outer cortex ostectomy should be performed by experienced specialists with extensive experience.
We can decrease the number of muscle cells, instead of reducing their size, by radiating high frequency with a micro syringe. The degraded muscle cells will never be regenerated.
In particular, those who have overdeveloped masticatory muscles can enjoy noticeable effects.
