JAW AESTHETIC

What is Jaw Aesthetic Surgery ?

It is a type of cosmetic surgery that changes the size, position or shape of the jaw and jawbone. It allows for better balance in your lower face by correcting a small, hollow, asymmetrical or weak chin.

How is Jaw Aesthetic Surgery Performed ?

Which methods will be applied in chin aesthetic surgeries are decided according to the patient’s chin structure and the desired appearance. A chin implant or filler can be applied to patients who have a small chin and want to make their chin proportional to their face.

During chin augmentation, the implant is placed on the bone under the lips. Incisions are usually made on the underside of the chin or inside the lip, between the lower lip and the gumline. Thus, scars do not appear after healing.

If the patient’s jaw structure is suitable, an aesthetic appearance can be obtained by filling application.

What should be done before jaw aesthetic surgery ?

Since smoking and alcohol have negative effects on the skin, it is recommended to stop using it 3 weeks before the procedure. Also, you should not wear make-up before the surgery.

Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or if you are taking any medications. Op.Dr. Sultan YALÇIN and his team will tell you in detail what you should do before the surgery.
