Facial ContouringMANDIBLE ANGLE RESECTION (SQUARE JAW)

mandible angle resection procedure

Mandible reduction provides a beautiful jawline by trimming or resecting the lower mandibular bone. This surgery is considered safe, but the recovery time could be lengthy due to swelling. When square jaw surgery is performed together with a chin reduction, it can maximize the final appearance.

Mandible Angle Resection can Benefit

  1. 1. People with a wide jaw
  2. 2. People with a square/angled jaw
  3. 3. People with minor asymmetry

How is Mandible Angle Resection Performed?

An incision is made inside the mouth from the 2nd molar to the canines. The desired shape is trimmed from the back of the jaw to the mental foramen. By removing just the outer layer of the jaw, the width of the face is made slimmer (cortex removal). The amount of trimming depends on the severity of the width.

* Please be aware that all facial bone contouring surgeries are done using oral-incisions under general anesthesia. After a careful CT scan, the doctor will be able to diagnose your condition better and advise you on the most suitable surgical method for you.
