What is Face Reduction V Line Surgery?
Face Reduction V Line Surgery, uses ‘id Dia Osteotomy’ that freely adjusts the length of chin tip to create a small face balanced with the chin. For a short chin and a wide face, length and location of chin are adjusted for a slimmer face with a V-line. For a long chin and a flat face, front chin is shortened and the jaw bone under ear is cut to create a smaller face in golden ratio.

Create V-line face with adjusting the length of the chin
Blunt and wide chin tip is cut by dia osteotomy, and unnecessary bone parts are cut out which are put back together down in the middle. As a result, length and location of frontal chin are adjusted, and you will have a smaller face with dimensional look.
Diagonal osteotomy to make it thinner for a slim and small face
After adjusting the length and location of frontal chin, diagonal osteotomy is used to cut the rest of the mandibular angle and cortical bone to make jaw thinner and create a slender V-line. For mandibular angle, the angular part under ear is cut out, and cortical bone is cut diagonally, avoiding the nerve path. This prevents a possible angle in cross osteotomy.
Muscles tied in the tip of chin for to upgrade V-line effect!
There are muscles in the tip of chin. After shaping the frontal chin through dia osteotomy, chin muscles under the skin tissues are tied to complete a slimmer shape of chin without inserting implants or filler. Since it is operated along with dia small V line surgery, you can see much better effect of slim jaw line.
