  • What is Square Jaw Surgery?

    The surgery reduces the size of the overdeveloped lower jaw.
    The square jaw refers to the chin with large and angular square jaw due to the overdevelopment of the
    mandibula (sides of lower jaw) and the surgery reduces them.

    The surgery incises the square jaw to the corners of the mouth to create slim facial appearance not only
    from the front but also from the sides. Also, muscle reduction and fat removal are performed to provide
    a more defined face with definite volume reduction.

    Why the Square Jaw Surgery is
    called baby-face surgery

    The slim face in the age of 20 tends to become angular and wide when the aging begins. It happens
    because a long time of chewing wears out the teeth and strengthens the jaw muscles.The strengthened
    jaw muscle naturally makes the supporting bones look thick.
    Thus, the wide jaw gives an older appearance. In this case, the surgery restores the previously slim jaw line
    through the surgery and improves the image to a young face.

Special Features of VIEW’s Square Jaw Surgery
  • GOOD LOOKS FROM THE FRONT

    Reduces the width of the front chin and volume of the square jaw to form a slim and slender front appearance.

  • IMPROVED LOOKS FROM THE SIDES

    Reduces the width of the square jaw and forms a smoth facial side line to the chin.

  • LESS SWELLING AND MORE ELASTICITY

    Special care, the last stage of the surgery, helps with the quick removal of the swelling and completes a slim face.

BONE SCALPEL ENHANCING
THE ACCURACY
The bone scalpel is an ultrasonic device that cuts the bones
by responding only to the bone tissues.

It has less vibration (within 0.5mm), enabling a very precise surgery, protects
nearby blood vessels and nerves by responding only to bones, thus causing less
tissue damage and bleeding and providing quick recovery.

Before and After
the surgery
Square Jaw Surgery
Surgical Method
  • 01.
    Long curve resection

    Surgical MethodPerforming gradually sloping resection of the lower jawline from the areas below the ears to the corners of the mouth.
    The angular square jaw turns into a smooth one and chin line becomes slim.The surgery can correct even severely
    asymmetric jaws.

    Classification Long curve resection Mandibular angle resection
    Surgical site Cuts in a gentle slope from the angular
    parts below the ear to the chin
    Cuts only the angular part
    below the ear
    Incision No visible scars due to incision
    inside the oral cavity
    Scars left behind the ears due
    to the incision
    Effect Slim look from every angle Slim look from the sides
    Chin line Smooth and slender line
    without angular bones
    There is a possibility of additional
    bone angles to appear

    Cortical Bone Resection

    What is the cortical bone?The bones in the body consist of 3 layers: outer cortical bone, cancellous bone and inner cortical bone. The cortical
    bone we often refer to is the outer cortical bone with the dense bone tissue. This surgery carefully cuts only that one
    layer of the bone in order to reduce the facial volume.

    Surgical MethodThe cortical bone resection peels off some of the bone surface like peeling off a banana to make a slimming effect.
    It is only 2mm of the cortical bone to be peeled off for most people but it has a significant aesthetic difference.
    Additionally, the surgery removes the developed muscles and fat for better results.

  • 03.
    Muscle Reduction Surgery

    Surgical MethodThis method uses a small medical needle to transmit high frequency waves to burn and reduce part of the muscles.
    At this point, the number of muscle cells are deleted and the results are semi-permanent because the degenerated
    muscle cells are never reproduced. The surgery reduces the thickness of overdeveloped masseter muscles to give a
    slimmer look.

  • 04.
    Removing Deep Facial Fat

    Removal of deep facial fatThere is a long lump of fat from the temple beside the eyes to the side of the lips on the side of the face. It is called
    “isthmic fat” in medical terms and is also referred to as “deep facial fat”. This excessive amount of fat around the
    cheeks makes them look protruded. This condition is often seen during the childhood but sometimes remains even
    in the adulthood.

    Surgical MethodRemoving fat through the oral cavity. Excessive fat removal may damage nearby nerve tissues or salivary glands and make the cheeks look sunken. Therefore, the exact position of the fat must be identified first and then 4 – 5cc of the fat must be removed by the experienced surgeon.

2. 3D CT upgrading the operational precision and stability

3DCT is a device that projects x-rays on the human body in order to reconstruct a three-dimensional image of internal structures.
Comparing to other X-ray images it is 3000 times more accurate and able to produce a multi-dimensional analysis of facial bones’ size, location, depth, length,
and width. Based on this, surgery methods and limits can be customized into an individual surgery plan.
Furthermore, thanks to precise knowledge of neural glands location, the surgery can be performed safely and with no neurological damage.
