What is angulation of the jaw and how can it be done?

It should be noted that in many cases, the patients will need to correct the jaw relations in order to correct the facial form, and the use of non-surgical methods such as fillers, etc. will not solve the problems of these patients and will bring problems for them. It is recommended for these patients to correct jaw and facial relations

Of course, in some cases, the patient’s jaw will need silicone implants or porous polyethylene implants such as medpore to be angled. In fact, this surgery does not always reduce jaw bones and muscles. In some cases, the doctor angles the patient’s jaw by adding an implant. The process of planting implants is also done with general anesthesia and making an incision. Surgical incisions are made on the jaw line or the area below it so that if the scar remains after healing, it will not cause a problem in the person’s appearance.

Who can perform jaw angulation surgery?

Angularizing the jaw is considered a cosmetic surgery method that can have a positive effect on people’s faces. Some people genetically have a smaller or larger than standard jaw, or their jaw does not fit their face. Jaw angulation surgery helps these people to create a natural and beautiful appearance.

In some cases, jaw reshaping surgery (reduction or implant placement) is not only for beauty. For example, jaw surgery may be needed for the effect of orthodontic treatment. In general, the dentist will help you determine whether you need this surgical method or not.

In addition to that, candidates for jaw reshaping and angulation surgery must also have the following characteristics.

  • People who are in perfect health. (If there are physical problems, this surgery should be done with the doctor’s opinion).
  • People who do not smoke or intend to quit.
  • People who have realistic expectations from this surgical method.
  • People who prefer surgery to other jaw angulation methods.

The features that we mentioned are general and many people who apply for jaw angulation surgery have them. For this reason, it is necessary for the surgeon to accurately determine whether you are a suitable candidate for this surgery or not. For example, in some cases, the patient can achieve his goal of angularizing the jaw with simpler methods such as fat injection. In this case, surgery will not be needed.

All about round face angulation

Angularization of the round face has been one of the types of medical procedures performed to change the face in recent years. The reason for this can be attributed to the change in people’s definition of beauty, because unlike in the past, round faces do not have many fans. Today, angular faces are considered attractive faces. There are different ways to angle a round face. First of all, you need to know your face shape. In this case, you can understand whether you need round face angulation or you should go for other beauty methods. In round faces, the length and width of the face are usually equal. These people have fleshy faces and usually the bones of their faces are not visible. The cheeks and chins of these people are also plump and big. A large percentage of people who have round faces also have chubby faces. This may make people look fat. For this reason, the owners of round faces pay special attention to the angulation of the face.

How long does it take to fully recover after jaw angulation surgery?

Full recovery after jaw angulation surgery is done in a short period of time. Most patients feel very little pain for 1-2 days. Complete recovery of facial swelling after surgery may take several weeks. By using a cold compress, avoiding the use of sodium and alcoholic beverages, and keeping the head elevated for one to two weeks, facial swelling can be significantly reduced.
In general, most patients go through a recovery period of 7 to 10 days after surgery, and then they can return to work.

  • Speech problems and putting the lips together are corrected.
  • Sleep apnea (temporary cessation of breathing during sleep) is resolved.
  • Relieves temporomandibular joint problems (TMD) and related pain.

Jaw angle correction surgery is generally considered a safe procedure. This surgery is performed by an experienced oral and maxillofacial surgeon and usually in collaboration with an orthodontist. If this surgery is performed by a professional specialist, there will be no need to worry. However, the risks that jaw surgery may have include the following:

Non-surgical methods for jaw angulation

Non-surgical methods can also help to angle the jaw. Of course, their durability is not as long as surgery and they may need to be renewed after some time. These methods are suitable for people whose jaws do not need many changes. In the following, we have mentioned other methods that are used for this.

Filler injection

Filler injection makes the edges of the jaw more prominent and gives it an angle. This procedure is performed on an outpatient basis, and about three filler syringes are needed to angle the jaw. Filler is not a permanent method. For this reason, it should be extended after 12-18 months.

Temporary methods will help you determine whether an angular jawline is compatible with your face shape or not. If the desired appearance is created, you can use permanent methods such as jaw angulation surgery. In case of non-satisfaction, its effects will disappear after one to two years.

Botox injection

Botox is used to paralyze nerves. This method is used for people who have an unpleasant jaw shape due to the size of the master muscle. This muscle makes the jaw appear large, and Botox injection will create a V-shape for the jaw.

30 to 60 Botox units are needed to angle the jaw. The effects of this method will remain for three to four months.

Fat Injection

This method is also known as a long-term and even permanent method, like jaw angulation surgery. In this method, fat from other parts of the body is removed and used to angle the jaw. From which organ the fat is removed depends on the opinion of the doctor.

Use of surgical sutures

This method is semi-invasive, and with its help, loose skin and fat around the jaw can be returned to the right place. In this case, the angle of the jaw will be determined. In this method, patients need 4 to 8 threads. This method is also temporary and makes your jaw angular for 6 to 12 months. The skin of people who are older or have more sagging skin returns to its natural and sagging shape sooner.
