Dr. Ji Hyuck Lee explains
How essential is T-Osteotomy for achieving the perfect V-Line?

Currently, almost all clinics perform square jaw reduction surgery with T-osteotomy. The reason is that T-Osteotomy can create a perfect V-Line at all angles.
Before id Hospital first developed T-Osteotomy, square jaw reduction surgery was performed by rounding the jawline. With this method, the actual size of the chin could not be reduced. The T-osteotomy method was discovered during the case of a patient with chin cancer in England, who was treated by a T-shaped incision. id hospital adopted and adapted this method to develop T-Osteotomy square jaw reduction surgery which makes the chin more slender.

The limits of square jaw reduction surgery have been overcome by T-Osteotomy which has become vital to creating the perfect V-Line.
