When people talk about facial attributes, the first things that usually come to mind are the eyes, the nose, lips and the cheekbones. What is often overlooked is the role a good-sized jawbone plays in creating balance and harmony among the different features of your face. That is why if you have a thick and wide jawbone, your face will appear flat, wide and square. Fortunately, this generally congenital condition that you may find unattractive and embarrassing can be remedied by a tried and tested cosmetic procedure – jaw reduction surgery.
A softer, more balanced facial contour is what we at Destination Beauty can help you achieve. By getting in touch with us, you’ll know everything there is to know about the procedure; you’ll learn what to do before and after operation; and you’ll discover that you can’t find a deal that is better than what we have to offer.
How Jaw Reduction Surgery is Done
Jaw reduction surgery is an inpatient procedure where you’ll be required to stay an extra two nights at the hospital after operation. You’ll be under general anesthesia which means that you will be asleep and not feel any pain for the duration of the three to four hour procedure.
There are different techniques in going about jaw reduction surgery. A common method involves your surgeon making small incisions, usually inside your mouth, through the bottom gums along the jaw line. You surgeon uses this as access to the prominent areas of the jawbone. The junction of the back part of the jaw and the lower border of the jaw is essentially cut off. This softens the jaw angle and raises the line of the jaw from front to back.
Preparing for Mandible Angle Reduction
Close coordination with your surgeon during consultation is very important if you want to recover fast and have successful results.
Your surgeon will determine during this period your overall fitness to undergo a jaw reduction surgery. You may be asked to have some routine laboratory tests done. You should also disclose your full medical history. If you have conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, heart and blood flow problems and lung trouble, you may be at greater risk of complications later on.
Aside from being generally healthy, you need to be emotionally stable. You should be frank with your surgeon about your wants and your expectations. The proper mindset is being realistic about the results and understanding the risks that the surgery carries.
Your surgeon will give you detailed instructions on the dos and don’ts during the days before your operation. You will most likely be required to stop smoking, drinking alcohol and taking certain medicines, vitamins and supplements for at least two weeks before your surgery. These substances are known to interfere with the healing process.
What Happens After Surgery?
You’ll have a compression bandage or garment around your face upon leaving the operating room which will be removed a day or two after. You’ll be on a liquid or very soft diet for the first couple of days after surgery.
You’ll experience soreness, bruising, swelling, and sometimes numbness along the incision like or around the lower lip. All these side effects are normal and generally short-lived. You can manage these discomforts better with medication prescribed by your surgeon. Sleeping with your head elevated can also help in reducing the swelling and bruising.
It’s very important that you ensure hygiene of the wounds on your bottom gums to avoid proliferation of bacteria inside the mouth. Mouthwash use is recommended.
Recovery time differs from person to person but you can expect to do some light chores about 10 days after surgery. However, strenuous activities, heavy lifting and straining should be avoided for about three more weeks.
You can see significant improvement in your facial contour once most of swelling and bruising subsides by the second week. Final and long term results become more apparent after three to six months.
Risk of Complications
Jaw reduction surgery is a relatively safe and effective procedure. But no matter how simple an operation is, complications are always a possibility. Such issues related to this type of procedure include adverse reaction to anesthesia, infection, asymmetry, nerve damage, bleeding, and prolonged swelling.
