will jaw reduction give me a v-shaped face?

will jaw reduction give me a v-shaped face?

Postby bradybear » Fri Jul 20, 2018 1:27 am

Hi everyone! The shape of my face is literally squared but chin quite cute (v-shaped). So, I’m basically not interested in v-line (osteotomy mixed with jaw reduction), all I want to proceed is jaw reduction and maybe zygoma. Is it possible to achieve v-line without cutting a chin? Would really appreciate if someone can share similar experience. Thanks!

Absolutely gorgeous! But I think your chin was quite ok before why did you cut it?

my surgeon dr Changhyun Oh suggested to undergo genioplasty as well. when it comes to your face, proportions are very important and if you cut jaws and zygoma your chin, even if it seems perfect now, may not be symmetric to your new jaw and cheeks line after the surgery. during our consultation dr Oh calculated the symmetry of my face and showed on 3D computer modelling how my face’d look like with and without chin surgery, the difference was quite noticeable. I trusted him and his experience and he was right :)

Huh, I’ve heard that South Korea is a leader for facial contouring and especially v-line. How much the recovery took you?

Korean plastic surgeons proceed facial contouring more than in any other country :) the full recovery process took me about 6 months, 2 weeks of initial recovery when I got rid of main swelling and edemas, 2 more weeks to return to my usual daily live, another months to fully return to normal food, about 1.5 months to start working out at the gym and rest of the time just waiting for final result when swelling is completely gone

So, in total for how long did you have to stay in Seoul? 1 month?
