Jaw Aesthetics

There are symmetry and balance between the structures forming the facial skeleton in the body. The deterioration of this balance can create functional problems in addition to aesthetic problems. For example, congenital or traumatic deformities in the jaw area may cause eating, drinking and speech problems. With this reason, aesthetic or functional problems can be avoided with the aesthetic surgery of the jaw

What are the shape disorders in the jaw region?

Congenital upper or lower jaws are small or curved, misalignment of the face due to underdevelopment is one of the common jaw deformities.

Other problems encountered are traumatic fractures, dislocations, and misfunctions.

One of the most disturbing conditions in patients with jaw deformities is biting problems. This may lead to malnutrition, breathing problems and night snoring. These deformities in the jaw can also cause the person to experience psychological problems.

Patients with such orthodontic problems are referred to the dentists before. However, in patients with severe bite and chewing problems, only orthodontic treatment is not sufficient, and surgical intervention of the jawbones is required. These surgical methods are aesthetic operations that are more comprehensive and have a longer recovery period compared to the jaw tip operations performed for aesthetic reasons only.

How is the jaw aesthetic surgery performed?

Before the methods to be applied in jaw aesthetics, the problem should be well defined. Therefore, a good physical examination should be done before. This problem can be solved with deficiencies in the anteroposterior region of the jaw region, ie, jaw implant or filler injections when the lower jaw is small and back in profile view.

According to the doctor’s preference, general or local anesthesia can be done with a jaw aesthetic operation that takes an average of 45 min – 1 hour.

Prostheses are placed under the chin or in the mouth with the incisions are placed on the appropriate areas created on the jaw.

Is there a scar after chin aesthetics?

Depending on the technique used during jaw aesthetics, the residual condition may vary. There are several techniques used in these operations. The first is the incisions made through the mouth. These incisions do not show any traces from the outside.

The second method is the incisions made under the chin. In this method, there are traces of faded color that fades in time. Both methods are applied in the surgery of the chin aesthetics.

Although the incisions made by the mouth are generally preferred, incisions made under the chin are used when the neck and glial stretching operations are performed together with the jaw aesthetics operations.

How is the healing period?

Swelling and pain may occur around the jaw for about a week after aesthetic jaw tip surgery. Temporary loss of sensation may occur in the lower lips.

The incisions made into the mouth will heal after the first week and the swellings around the jaw will almost completely disappear within 1-2 weeks.
