Angular jaw correction

A simple and smooth process—minimal swelling and quick recovery! The causes behind an undefined, strong, and asymmetrical jaw can be divided into four categories: an angular lower jaw (below the ear area), a wide or thick cortical bone (dense outer surface of the bone), overdeveloped jaw muscles, or fat accumulation. Patients may have one or a combination of these issues. In order to be able to deliver not only side profile but also front profile improvement, rather than simply shaving the jawbone, it is key to diagnose the root cause and create an effective surgical plan based on the individual case.

Process of angular jaw correction surgery

  1. Long Curve Mandibular Osteotomy The jaw can appear strong and square-like due to the angle of the mandibular bone, also known as the lower jaw. The jawbone below the ear is smoothly shaved and reduced to create a slender jawline side profile
  2. Cortical Bone Osteotomy Cortical bone is jaw bone’s outer layer. A thick cortical bone can cause the face to appear larger and wider. Trimming the outer area can form a balanced jawline and smaller front profile
  3. Masseter Muscle Reduction The masseter muscle that surrounds the jawbone becomes over-developed from chewing or grinding the teeth. By permanently reducing the muscle, the jawline becomes soft and smooth
  4. Buccal Pad Removal Fat accumulating around the jaw can cause a square or chubby look. Without using any invasive procedures: laser liposuction can dissolve the fat to form a slimmer-looking face

Angular jaw correction surgery is recommended for those who

  1. Have strong lower jaw muscles, resulting in a bulky jaw
  2. Have a puffy jaw with excess fat gathered around it
  3. Have a severe angular jaw, creating too strong of a look
  4. Have wide jawbones that make the face look large and wide from the front
  5. Have an asymmetrical jaw that makes the face look unbalanced
