V-Line Mandibular Contouring Surgery

Overview of the surgery:
V-line mandibular contouring surgery allows for reduction of the chin to a more slender and oval shape without increasing its length. The surgery also reduces the overly strong bone flanking each side of the chin, thus transforming the more masculine U shape to a sharper and more feminine V shape.
The chin line is excised into a smooth line. The chin end can be brought together without touch of the nerve. The protruding parts in both sides of the mandible are excised.
The narrowed chin end produces the wholly oval V-line face type.

Duration of the operation:
The surgery may be performed 3-4 hours depending on the extent of the operation.

Post operative care:
You will be told to keep your head elevated and as still as possible for a couple of days after surgery to help minimize swelling. Avoid alcohol, steam baths, and saunas for several months. Above all, get plenty of rest and allow your body to spend its energy on healing.

Recovery period:
You may be able to go back to work at least 1-2 weeks after the surgery. Strenuous activities should be avoided, including heavy housework for at least 2 weeks but walking and mild stretching is fine.

Possible risk and complications:
Complications may include hematoma (a collection of blood under the skin that must be removed by the surgeon), infection, asymmetry and reactions to the anesthesia. You can reduce your risks by closely following your surgeon's instructions before and after surgery.

Anesthesia use:
The procedure uses General Anesthesia

Hospital admission:
This procedure may be performed in the cosmetic surgeon’s office-based facility, an outpatient surgery center, or at a hospital. This procedure is usually done on an outpatient basis

Preparation before Surgery
Gets lab testing or a medical evaluation Take certain medications or adjust your current medications. Stop smoking well in advance of surgery and avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding
  • Assessment of the medical history (any allergies, serious medical condition and all medications taken both prescribed and non-prescribed), physical examination, and laboratory tests will be performed during consultation.
  • Blood and urine samples will be collected for routine preoperative laboratory tests. X-rays may be taken to evaluate the individual's bone structure.
  • Smoking must be avoided for about 3-4 weeks prior to surgery, as nicotine interferes with circulation and will greatly affect healing process.
  • You will likely to be asked to stop drinking alcohol, a week before the surgery and throughout your recovery period.
  • Avoid taking any medications such as hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids and supplements at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complicating medical factors prior to surgery. Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding.
