If you’re unhappy with the shape or size of your jaw, implants or a reduction may be a good option for you.Jaw implants restore facial structure, give more balance, and strengthen the jawline, giving many patients a more youthful and chiseled look. A weak jawline causes the face to blend with the neck.A jaw reduction is a great procedure for patients with a very square or outward-flaring jaw, which often overpowers the rest of the face.Candidates for jaw implants or reduction should have properly functioning jaws and teeth.
During a jaw implant procedure, an incision is made inside the mouth. An implant is placed, creating a more square and prominent jaw, and the incision is closed with stitches. During a jaw reduction procedure, an incision is made inside the mouth and the jaw is shaved down, reducing its size and reshaping to create a more rounded look. The incision is closed with stitches.Jaw implants or reduction may be performed in conjunction with other procedures such as a facelift, cheek implant, or chin implant to give you the look you want.
