Square jaw correction or reduction involves slimming down the jawline for a more V-shaped face silhouette. Women with square jaws often use this procedure to relieve some of the insecurity they feel about their jawlines. Through jaw reduction surgery, they get the heart-shaped face they always desired.
In the 21st century, 3D simulation and piezo-surgical technologies have revolutionized and simplified this procedure significantly. Since square jaw correction is a permanent solution, using 3D models helps surgeons ensure precise results. As a patient, you can also visualise the final result before undergoing the procedure. Piezosurgery accentuates this precision by delivering sharp and clear bone cuts and targeting bone exclusively, leaving neighbouring nerves and tissues intact. Therefore, there is no risk of compromising jaw function.
When patients hear about this advanced technology, they are often apprehensive due to the increased cost of the procedure. We recommend that you do not think about this procedure as a one-time purchase but as an investment in yourself. However, if you are still worried about the price, let us help alleviate some fear.
What is the cost of square jaw reduction surgery?
Like any medical procedure, surgery is expensive. However, you can make this price worth it if you choose the right surgeon and centre.
- Certified Surgeon: One of the primary markers of excellence is your surgeon’s qualification. While such expertise may have a higher price tag, you also get the latest techniques and safest procedures and years of valuable knowledge and skill behind your surgery. Ensuring your maxillofacial surgeon has such recognition and patient testimonials for your perusal makes them much more reliable and trustworthy with your anatomy.
- Well-Equipped Centre: We mentioned some of the top technological innovations in jawline contouring above, and a well-equipped centre should have these. Such sophisticated technology gives surgeons the ability to make your surgery safer, shorter and more predictable, greatly increasing the chances of excellent, natural-looking results.
The goal of every good surgeon and their centre is to reduce surgical downtime. They want you to have a smooth and painless recovery. Utilising this state-of-the-art technology ensures that you are comfortable during recovery, and the results are worth any discomfort.
So, what is the recovery timeline for square jaw correction?
Recovery After Square Jaw Reduction Surgery
While the complete swelling takes 3-6 months to reduce due to bone and soft tissue remodelling over the new contours, most of the swelling should disappear in the first 3-4 weeks. You also need to avoid solid foods and heavy exercise for a week. You may also experience some lip numbness for 4-6 weeks.
Maintaining good aftercare is essential for the best results. Regular rinsing with warm saline ensures wound hygiene and helps you heal better!
