Mandible Reduction & Implant

MANDIBLE REDUCTION & IMPLANT

Is your jawline lacking prominence? Get a power, confident profile at Cosmetrix

If you want to get a stronger jawline or reduce the size of your jaw to be more balanced with your other facial features, you may want to consider a mandible implant or reduction. This popular procedure either enhances, reduces or changes the size and shape of your jaw through implants or removal or realignment of part of the lower jawbone, to give your lower face the shape you want.

Who is it for?

A jaw implant or reduction is suitable for adult men and women who have weak or irregular jawlines, or jawlines that are too big compared to their other facial features. This procedure is often carried out to complement other cosmetic facial procedures, such as a face lift, neck lift or cosmetic nose surgery (rhinoplasty). To have this procedure, you must be in good health.

What to expect?

In preparing for a jaw implant or reduction you may be asked to:

  • Get lab testing or a medical evaluation
  • Examine or measure you face and discuss dental issues
  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements, as they can increase bleeding

This surgery takes around two hours. On the day of the procedure, you’ll receive general anesthesia, which will put you to sleep during the operation. As there are several ways to change the size or shape of your jaw, the ideal approach will be determined with your doctor. For jaw reduction, you will likely have to spend one or two nights in the hospital following this procedure.

How long will it take you to recover?

It will take around a week to recover from a jaw implant and up to a month to recover from a jaw reduction.  You’ll have to severely limit strenuous exercise and may need to take time off work for this period. Your doctor will advise you on this based on your personal situation, as you go through the healing process.

Common side effects

After a jaw implant or reduction, you may experience some common side effects that can persist for several weeks. In the days following surgery, pain and swelling are likely to occur, while some numbness and bruising are also common. The risk of other, more severe complications is minimal and rare, but increases if you have poor circulation, diabetes, heart, lung, or liver disease.

The new you…

Your more symmetrical and balanced jawline will be noticeable immediately, though it may take several weeks for the swelling to go away and the final results of the procedure to be fully visible. You will likely feel more confident in your appearance with your stronger, more proportional jaw.
