What Is Mandible Contouring?

Mandible contouring, or jawline contouring or jaw reduction, is a cosmetic procedure aimed at reshaping and refining the jawline to achieve a more aesthetically pleasing appearance. This surgical intervention involves altering the size and prominence of the mandible, the largest and strongest bone in the human face, responsible for supporting the lower teeth and jaw.

Our mandible contouring can address various concerns, including naturally large or square jawlines, asymmetry, or jaw enlargement due to genetics, aging, or medical conditions like temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. By reducing or reshaping the bone, the procedure aims to create a more balanced, symmetrical, and proportionate facial profile, enhancing overall facial harmony and aesthetic appeal.

The Benefits of Mandible Contouring

Mandible contouring at Ascentist Plastic Surgery offers a transformative solution for achieving facial harmony and enhancing aesthetic appearance. Benefits of this procedure include the following:

Reduction of a Naturally Large or Square Jawline

For individuals with a prominent or square jawline, mandible contouring can reduce the size and prominence of the mandible.

Correction of Asymmetry or Irregularities in Jaw Shape

Is Mandible Contouring Right for Me?

Mandible contouring may be suitable for individuals seeking to enhance their facial profile by refining the appearance of their jawline. Ideal candidates often experience dissatisfaction with a naturally large, square, or asymmetrical jawline, which can impact overall facial harmony and confidence. Symptoms such as self-consciousness about facial proportions, difficulty achieving desired facial balance, or feeling that the jawline lacks definition indicate a potential benefit from this procedure. However, determining if mandible contouring is right for you requires a thorough consultation with our experienced plastic surgeons at Ascentist Plastic Surgery. During this consultation, we will assess your concerns, facial anatomy, and aesthetic goals to develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.

What to Expect: Mandible Contouring Procedure

Mandible contouring, also known as jawline contouring or jaw reduction, is a cosmetic procedure designed to reshape and refine the jawline for a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing facial appearance. Depending on the patient's preferences and the desired jaw reduction, mandible contouring can be performed using surgical or non-surgical techniques. Surgical options may involve removing a portion of the mandible bone or reshaping it to achieve the desired contour. With the surgical expertise of our skilled team, we can carefully manipulate the bone and surrounding tissues to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome while ensuring functional integrity. Non-surgical approaches may include strategically injecting dermal fillers to add volume and contour to the jawline. The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia to ensure patient comfort. The duration of the procedure varies depending on the specific techniques used and the case's complexity but typically ranges from one to several hours. Overall, mandible contouring offers individuals seeking to refine their jawline an effective option to enhance their facial harmony and self-confidence.

Mandible Contouring Recovery

Following mandible contouring, patients can expect some downtime as they recover from the procedure. Swelling and bruising around the jawline and lower face are common and typically peak within the first few days after surgery before gradually subsiding. Patients may experience discomfort or tightness in the jaw area, which can usually be managed with prescribed pain medication. It's essential to follow postoperative instructions provided by our team, which may include keeping the head elevated, avoiding strenuous activities, and adhering to a soft diet during the initial recovery period. Most patients can return to light activities within a week or two, although strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for several weeks. While initial results may be visible once swelling diminishes, outcomes typically become apparent as the tissues settle and heal over the following weeks and months. Follow-up appointments at Ascentist Plastic Surgery in Kansas City will be scheduled to monitor progress, address any concerns, and ensure optimal healing and results.
