Square Jaw Reduction

Square Jaw Reduction is a procedure of trimming a square or angulated chin into a slim and smooth jawline. 

It is considered a high level procedure due to several factors interlinked with this procedure. First, patients who receive this surgery often also have an asymmetrical face, which requires different techniques and approaches throughout the surgery. Also, doctors must take extreme caution not to damage the patient’s nerve system. Therefore, square jaw reduction is a procedure only recommended for patients who really need it

Unlike the existing methods that only excise the mandibular part, Answer Plastic Surgery performs surgery from the angulus mandibulae (angle of jaw) to the end of the jaw, thus creating a more balanced, perfect V-line. You will know you are in good hands when you come to Answer Plastic Surgery; we continue to research and advance our techniques to bring the best and safest results for you.

Square Jaw Reduction is Recommended...

  • if your lower jaw is wide and round
  • if your jaw-line is flat
  • if your jaw is longer in proportion to the rest of your face
  • if your side jaw-line looks angular

Operation Process

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Is neural damage common while getting Square Jaw Reduction?

A: Here at Answer Plastic Surgery, we carefully examine the location of each individual's nerve system by taking CT scans before the procedure, thus minimizing any possibility of neural damage.

Q: How long does it take to recover?

A: There are two different methods for Square Jaw Reduction: incision through the back of the ear or through the mouth. If we make an incision through the back of the ear, it may reduce recovery time but have limits due to the shorter incision length, allowing less room for the best results. On the other hand, a method that makes an incision through mouth has longer recovery time-approximately two to four weeks-but shows fine effect.

 

Q: I heard I “have to” get Square Jaw Reduction if I get Cheekbone Surgery…

A: It is possible that once you get cheekbone reduction, your chin may look relatively bigger in proportion due to your reduced cheekbones. In this case, the Square Jaw Reduction will bring balance to your facial ratio. However, it does not mean that every patient who gets cheekbone reduction needs to get Square Jaw Reduction.

Q: Isn't Square Jaw Reduction Dangerous?

A: Not at all. Answer Square Jaw Reduction precisely grasps the locations of all the nerves before the surgery and minimizes any other possible problems which may occur throughout your surgery.

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will I have noticeable scarring after Alar Reduction? 

Generally, people do get scars around the mouth and nose after the operation. However, at Answer Plastic surgery, we use our ultra-fine equipment when suturing to minimize the scars. Over time, the scar will become unnoticeable.

 

Q: When do people get Nostril Reduction?

When people do not have enough alar tissue cells, it is difficult to have an alar base surgery. In this case, those who have large nostrils often choose to reduce their nostrils.

Q: In which cases is alar lifting recommended?

Alar lifting is recommended for those whose have droopy alars. When the alars are sagging compared to the nasal column (the section between the nostrils), nostrils seem to be exposed. By lifting the alars, the amount of exposure can be reduced.
