What Can Jaw Contouring Surgery achieve?
If you feel that your lower face is too wide and square in appearance and want a long term solution to achieve a slimmer face shape, jawline contouring surgery may be an option. Squareness of your face can be caused by a few factors. It could be due to an excessive angle at the posterior part of the mandible below the ear, or the thickness of the jaw bone itself, or enlarged jaw muscles involved in chewing. By reducing the angle of the jaw bone and modifying the jaw muscles on the sides of your face, this surgery can help create a more feminine jaw shape and a more egg-shaped face
However if you are facing the opposite problem of not having enough jaw definition and are concerned about your lower face being too narrow, customized jaw angle facial implants can offer a good contouring option for the jawline augmentation. Jaw augmentation, or mandibular augmentation does not necessarily involve cutting of the bone, as the implants are designed to be added on top of the bone, beneath the jaw muscles.
