From a long face to a baby face!
People always made fun of my long face, telling me that I look like a horse. I tied my hair in a bun and paid great attention to my make-up so that I could make my face look short. Nothing worked until I met ID Hospital’s two-jaw surgery which gave me a baby face that I’ve always wanted. My face got a lot smaller but it still has volume. Celebrities are not the only ones who have a baby face!
 
Symptoms
The face is relatively longer compared to the jaw line, making the entire face look like it is out of balance. In most cases, patients have mouth protrusion and mandibular prognathism, having long and wide jaw line.
 
 
Esthetic factors
Because the face looks long, the jaw line and the neckline are not defined and the patient looks shorter than he/she actually is.
 
 
Esthetic factors
Low self-esteem about the physical appearance and inaccurate enunciation further undermines self-confidence.
 
 
Functional factors
Depends on combined symptoms.
 
Cases
 
  1. Facial profile is flat or the patient has mandibular
prognathism.

- The face looks longer because of the long jaw line.
- The jaw is pushed back through two-jaw surgery and the overall length and size of the face are reduced.
- In this case, we recommend ID Hospital’s V-line two-jaw surgery.
 
  2. The patient’s gums show when he/she smiles.
- We commonly say that an individual looks like a horse when the central part of the face is relatively long.
- Two-jaw surgery reduces the length of the lower and upper jaws and a separate procedure on the gums is also carried out.
- In this case, we recommend ID Hospital’s no-tie two-jaw surgery.
 
  3. The patient has a long face and mouth protrusion.
- The central part of the face is overly developed, causing the gums to protrude and making the face look longer.
- The mouth is slightly open in a natural state and the gums show when smiling because of mouth protrusion.
- Two-jaw surgery improves mouth protrusion and long face, while positioning the tip of the lower jaw correctly and safely.
- In this case, we recommend ID Hospital’s no-tie two-jaw surgery.
 
  4. Long face with facial asymmetry
- The face is long, accompanied by facial asymmetry.
- The long face and facial asymmetry are improved through two-jaw surgery.
- In this case, we recommend ID Hospital’s V-line two-jaw surgery.
 
  5. Long face with facial asymmetry
- The face is long, accompanied by facial asymmetry.
- The long face and facial asymmetry are improved through two-jaw surgery.
- In this case, we recommend ID Hospital’s V-line two-jaw surgery.
 
  6. Only when the tip of the lower jaw is long
- The face looks long because the tip of the jaw is extended.
- A simple genioplasty procedure on the tip of the jaw will significantly alter the overall appearance of the face.
- A combined surgery of genioplasty and V-line surgery may be needed.
- We recommend the V-line surgery.
