V-Line Jaw Surgery

V-line jaw surgery revises the angles of your jaw and chin. By removing the broader part of your mandible bones, your jaw takes on a more triangular shape.

The tip of your chin is also shaved down so it comes to a sharper tip at the bottom of your jaw.

Once the surgery is complete and you finish healing, these modifications to your jawbone and chin have fused together to give your jaw an elongated shape.

  • You will be under general anesthesia during surgery so you don’t feel any pain. Our surgeon will start the procedure by making incisions along your jawline and on your chin. They will place your jaw at a sharper angle and shave down your mandible (jaw) bone. They may shave and sharpen your chin.

  • Some people choose to have a chin implans as an additional part of this procedure, but that’s not always necessary.

  • Our surgeon will then stitch together the incisions and dress your wounds. They may insert temporary drains to help you heal.

This surgery will take around 1 to 2 hours to complete.

After about 1 week, the swelling will start to go down, and you may be able to catch a glimpse
of the surgery results. You won’t be able to fully see how your new jawline and chin look until
recovery is complete. This can take up to 3 weeks.
