V-line jaw surgery, also known as a mandibuloplasty, is done to narrow your jawline. Parts of your jawbone and chin are removed during surgery so that your jaw heals in a more pointed shape that resembles the letter "V."
V-shaped jaws and chins are associated with femininity and beauty in several cultures. People who want to have a more "feminine" jaw and chin shape are more likely to be women or nonbinary.
The V-line jaw surgery procedure changes the angles of your jaw and chin. The broader part of your mandible bones is removed, giving your jaw a more triangular appearance. Your chin is also shaved down at the tip, resulting in a sharper tip at the bottom of your jaw. These alterations to your jawbone and chin have bonded together to give your jaw an elongated shape once the surgery is completed and you have finished recuperating.
You may need to refrain from using blood-thinning drugs for up to two weeks before your V-line jaw surgery appointment. If you smoke, you should quit because it can slow recovery and increase the chance of problems.
Your surgeon will tell you not to drink alcohol for 48 hours before surgery. Before your consultation, your provider may give you extra instructions to follow. Make sure you pay attention to them.
Before surgery, you'll meet with your surgeon for a thorough discussion of your expected outcomes and expectations. To confirm the surgical areas, they may 'Mark your Face' with a marker right before entering the operating room.
During the procedure, you will be sedated and will not be aware of any discomfort. Incisions along your jawline and on your chin will be made by your surgeon to begin the operation. Your mandible (jaw) bone will be shaved down and your jaw will be set at a steeper angle. Your chin might be shaved and sharpened. Some patients opt for a chin implant (genioplasty) as an add-on operation, but it isn't always essential.
After that, your surgeon will sew the incisions together and dress your wounds. They could put temporary drains in your body to help you recuperate.
It will take approximately 1 to 2 hours to accomplish this surgery.
You'll be sent to a recovery room after the surgery to recuperate from anaesthetic. You may need to stay in the hospital for at least one night to be monitored before returning home to finish your recuperation.
V-line surgery requires many weeks of recovery. Your face may appear puffy at first. It is possible that you will experience some discomfort and agony. Anti-inflammatory pain medicines may be prescribed by your doctor to help you recover faster.
To ensure that your incisions heal properly, you will need to wear a compression garment over your chin, jaw, and neck.
The swelling will begin to go after about a week, and you will be able to see the operation effects. Until your recuperation is complete, you won't be able to see how your new jawline and chin look. It could take up to three weeks for this to be completed.
This treatment yields long-lasting results (permanent results).
At a follow-up appointment, your physician will go over your results with you and give you the green light to resume your normal activities.
