Is my chin causing my square jaw?

2015-05-20 17:35
Hankooki (Reporter: Choi Saet Byul) - If the ratio of temple width on both sides is 1, and the width of the jaw is greater than .8, there is a developed square jaw. When looking at the front with the naked eye, if the lower jaw protrudes prominently or from side view the jaw gives the impression of an angular face.

For those with a square jaw, the face is wide and gives off a strong impression, which creates a complex for many females as they may give off a negative impression on first dates or job interviews. In the past, people bore with these stresses; however with the development of square jaw surgery, many people are now seeing an improvement as angular jaws are made soft and smooth.

Plastic surgery specialist Sang Hoon Park of ID Plastic Surgery Hospital says, “Many people typical square jaw surgery only removes the angular portion under the ear, however those with prominent jaw must examine the multiple causes behind it—from the jaw bone to excessively developed jaw muscles and/or thick cortical bone.”

The newest form of square jaw surgery that’s receiving much attention locates the cause behind angular jaw to create a V line in “maximum reduction square jaw surgery.” This procedure excises the lower (under) jaw and also the cortical bone to decrease the thickness of bone and also reduce the developed muscles of the jaw.

During square jaw surgery, an incision is usually made behind the ear and the facial contour trimmed; however during maximum reduction square jaw surgery an incision is made inside the mouth to complete three procedures: facial contouring, cortical bone excision and muscle excision to give dramatic change to the area of maximum volume, known as the MVP (maximum volume point).

To view it simply, the procedure improves square jaw but also reduces the MVP, the thickest part of the lower jaw that makes the jawline also appear blunt, which results in a slim and smooth facial contour from every angle.

The procedure is done under general anesthesia and requires hospitalization for about a day but since the incision is made inside the mouth, there is no scar after surgery and as the nerves are identified prior to surgery and a thorough health examination completed to ensure high safety.

Dr. Park says, “Because the face is not flat but has dimensionality, after surgery whichever angle the face is examined, the square jaw must be gone to reveal a slender face shape in order for the surgery to be seen as successful. As current square jaw surgeries can’t solve the multiple causes behind angular jaw, this surgery was developed.”

If you hear often that your face is big or looks wide, or your square jaw is very angular or protruding, or there is noticeable change in your jaw muscle when you bite down on your molars, maximum reduction square jaw surgery could be for you. With “maximum reduction square jaw surgery,” visible improvement can also be seen from those who in general have a large jaw bone or the lower jaw is shaped like a U, causing the face to appear wide, or those who did only saw minimal improvement with square jaw surgery.
