Jaw reduction surgery is a surgery which treats the lower third of the face, usually to improve a jawline that is out of proportion to the rest of the face. Asians tend to have enlarged and masculine jaws, and jaw reduction surgery is meant to make the jawline look slender and more feminine. Often, it is done to have a U shaped chin to become a V shaped chin.

Jaw reduction methods

There are two methods of jaw reduction, one of which is jaw shaving, and the other being a non-surgical alternative of jaw shaving.

Jaw Shaving

The traditional method for jaw reduction surgery is jaw shaving which will reduce the outer portion of the jaw to narrow the face. The traditional method uses a saw, which new advances in technology introduces laser cutting of the jaw. The advantage of laser is that it will have less damage to the nearby tissue and cells, as well as less bleeding and less potential cracks.

Non-surgical Jaw shaving

The non-surgical jaw shaving technique will see the use of Botox or Myobloc being injected into the enlarged muscle of the jaw, weakening it slowly so it waste away over time. This method is a gradual method and results may take time to show.

What to expect after surgical operation?

As this is a major plastic surgery on the face, it is very important to take good care to prevent infection and aid in recovery. Elevation is key to have blood flow away from the operated area so as to have a speedier recovery.

For a week after surgery, it is advisable to only have a liquid diet to prevent trauma to the chin area. Hard food should only be consumed four weeks after surgery. Use mouth rinse to keep the mouth clean, and avoid trauma to the area.

Avoid strenuous activities and lifting heavy objects for up to four weeks, and smoking and drinking should also be avoided during this time.
