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.
