Jaw Angle Augmentation
Jaw angle is one of the most defining features of your face. In men, a broad, square jaw is synonymous with strength and masculinity. In women, a prominent, well-defined jawline is a sign of elegance and beauty. Unfortunately, not all people are genetically gifted with the bone structure for an ideal jawline.
Jaw angle augmentation is a procedure to enhance the jawline in both men and women. Our cosmetic surgeons will work with you to develop the perfect jaw implants and give you the look you’ve always wanted. Using 3D imagery, we work directly with the manufacturer to create a custom 3D-printed jaw implant to achieve your cosmetic goals.
Many of our patients undergo jaw augmentation surgery in addition to chin and cheek augmentation as part of a comprehensive facial rejuvenation strategy.
Jaw Angle Augmentation Before and After
Before your jaw augmentation procedure, we will review your medical history and determine your current physical health. It is important during this consultation to fully disclose your history of smoking and prescription drug use. Once we establish that you’re healthy enough for the procedure, we’ll perform a low-radiation 3D cat scan to give us a complete visualization of your jaw. We work directly with the implant company to create your custom-made jaw implant.
Jaw Angle Augmentation Procedure
Your jaw angle augmentation will be performed under general anesthesia. While you are asleep, your surgeon will make incisions inside your mouth behind your wisdom teeth. Your jaw implants will be properly positioned and secured to the bone using tiny metal screws.
Jaw Angle Augmentation Recovery
After the procedure you will most likely experience tenderness in the jaw area. Mild to moderate swelling is also common. Average recovery time from the procedure is two to three weeks.
