Korean Jaw Surgery

Jaw surgery in Korea

When it comes to Korean jaw surgery, there are plenty of options available to you. Because each person has a differently shaped face and/or jawline, there are dozens of operations that you can get to change the way that your jaw is displayed. This operation is especially popular in Korea along with many other cosmetic surgeries.

However, navigating the world of jaw surgery can be a little tricky, because the concepts are sometimes hard to understand. Having a handy guide to walk you through the steps and types of jaw surgery is a critical part of your research. You, along with your selected specialist, should spend time reviewing all the options available to you to determine which operation is best suited for you. This post will serve as a guide to keep you informed on what operations are available and what you can expect throughout the process of Korean jaw surgery.

About Korean Jaw Surgery

The first step in the process of getting a jaw surgery is identifying which jaw surgery that you actually need. You can identify which surgery that you think you need on your own, but to make the final decision, you should talk with your specialist. Though the surgeon will make the final decision, you should go into the process as armed with knowledge as you can possibly be so that you understand what the doctor is telling you when they are trying to communicate with you about your options for surgery.

Mandible reduction is the first type of jaw surgery that we’re going to look at. Specialists use a special formula to determine if a candidate is suitable for mandible reduction surgery. They also use an equation to determine how drastic of a correction is necessary. This makes sure that the ratio and proportions of your face will be the best that it can be.

The goal of mandible reduction surgery is to narrow the jawline. From the front, this will mean that your chin and jaw will appear thinner and more pointed at the bottom. Many people with very round jawlines see this as a drastic improvement that slims the face and makes it more attractive. This type of Korean jaw surgery is debatably the most popular of all the jaw surgeries.

To achieve the reduction in width that this surgery is aimed at, the doctor removes part of the tissue that surrounds the jaw. This reduces the width and makes the skin fit more tightly around the jaw.

Once the surgery is completed, the V-Logic facial ratio is used to ensure that the most desirable facial shape is achieved. This ratio takes into account facial width and length to determine the ideal shape.

The next type of Korean jaw surgery that we’re going to take a look at is the Mini V-Line surgery. This type of surgery aims to correct indesirable chin shape. Again, this aims at achieving the V-Line ideal ratio that many seek to attain. More specifically, patients who choose this surgery are trying to make their chin appear smaller and more narrow.

From the front, this surgery would mean that the patient’s chin is more narrow and small. Many people see this as far preferable to a broad or widely rounded chin. This surgery addresses that directly through an operation that involves the removal of some of the chin bone.

In this operation, the doctor removes the lower tip of the chin. After that is complete, the middle portion of the removed bone is removed. Following that, the two outer sides of the removed piece are put back together and placed back on the chin. The surgery is completed by putting the skin back over the chin and the wound is properly closed. Success in this surgery means to have achieved the V-Line ratio that is determined using the width and length of the face. It also means that the chin doesn’t appear flat, broad, or wide and instead looks narrow and more pointy.

Square Jaw surgery is another operation that is aimed at reshaping the jaw and chin to achieve a great V-Line. This surgery is an expansion of the Mini V-Line surgery. Like the Mini V-Line surgery, it involves a reduction in the chin size from a flat, broad shape to a more pointed, narrow shape.

The area that it expands on Mini V-Line surgery is the action that is taken on the jaw shape. While Mini V-Line aims to correct only the chin, Square Jaw surgery is a corrective surgery that affects both the chin and the jaw. This surgery is done by removing the same part of the chin that Mini V-Line surgery removes. It goes a step further by removing and reshaping part of the jaw, so that it’s more straight.

As implied by the name, this surgery is most common for those who feel that they have a square shaped jaw. The ideal end result of this operation is to achieve a more pointed and narrow jaw and chin shape.

V-Line Reduction surgery is the final type of surgery that we’ll take a look at. This is another popular surgery that is more used by people who want a reduction in the size of their chin and jaw. As opposed to some of the other surgeries that we have analyzed, this surgery places both an emphasis on shape and size. The other surgeries were primarily aimed at reshaping the jaw rather than dealing with the actual size of the jaw and chin.

This surgery is performed by removing strategic parts of the jaw and chin bones and moving the remaining parts to achieve an attractive V-Line. This is one of the most involved types of surgeries on the jaw, as there are many cuts to be made and some bone parts need to be moved to new locations. It is still considered a fairly basic operation, though.

As you go through the different types of Korean jaw surgery, you might think that the process of doing them is as simple as picking out a surgery and making an appointment. Though cosmetic surgery is thought to be basic in comparison to other medical procedures, you still need to dedicate the time, care and research that you would do on any other operation that you could be having. You should understand all parts of the process from start to finish.

Here are the steps to a successful Korean jaw surgery and desirable outcome:

1. Desired Outcomes Discussed with Specialist

2. Physical Examination and Tests

In this step, your doctor or physician will run a series of text and perform a physical evaluation to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for the procedures that you have discussed.

6. Recovery
