Jaw Aesthetics

Having a chin that’s abnormally large, small, narrow, or wide can affect your facial appearance. Jaw aesthetics constitutes a range of surgeries that shape your chin in order to make your face look better.

Why Might I Need Jaw Aesthetics?

You may need jaw aesthetics because:

• Your chin simply don’t match your face due to genetic reasons
• You’ve suffered some form of trauma (or an accident) as a child or adult that has negatively impacted the shape of your chin
• Abnormal tooth development has deteriorated the shape and anatomy of your jaw

    Whether you look at your from the side or front, having a chin that is either too far back or too far forward, or either too wide or too narrow will affect your overall appearance.

    Your forehead, nose, radix, lips, chin, and nose/lip distance, need to be in harmonious ratio with one another. While designing you a new chin, we consider all of the above ratios, and then make calculations and drawings accordingly so that it’ll match your face.

    A chin that matches your face will change your expression and make you look younger.

    During your pre-operative examination, Dr. Ozsular will first listens to your expectations and complaints. Next, he’ll determine your need and re-design a jaw suitable for you based on age, gender, facial features, nose-lip distance, forehead to chin ratio, and the structure of your chin. Then, he’ll use photos and simulation to show you what your new chin might look like on your face.

    If your chin happens to be small and receded, a chin augmentation is planned for you either through fat injection, a chin implant, or both.

    If your jaw is abnormally large, wide, and forward, we’ll perform ultrasonic jawbone narrowing, jaw reduction, or jaw sharpening on you.

    If you happen suffer from jaw-shape related problems that require orthognathic surgery, you’ll absolutely undergo a detailed physical examination to ensure that you don’t wind up having the wrong surgery done on you (jaw reduction /augmentation).

    Local anesthesia or sedation can be preferred in minor touch-up procedures, whilst general anesthesia is preferred in most of surgeries.

    Before the operation, you should have the requested tests and examinations done. You’ll also need to inform your doctor if you take regularly any medication. If you’re using anticoagulants, you’ll need to tell him so one week before the surgery. Otherwise, they can make your wounds bleed. Try to reduce how much salt you consume as well before the surgery. This will reduce your risk of developing edema.

    You should also quit smoking (or cut back on how much you smoke) five weeks before the surgery. Smoking will slow down your wound and tissue recovery rate.

    If you’re taking any anticoagulants, you must cease using them (consult your doctor first).

    Try to reduce how much salt you consume as well a few days before the surgery. This will reduce your risk of developing edema.

    You won’t need to fast beforehand. Simply remove all of your make-up (if you have any on) and wash your face thoroughly.

    Also, Dr. Ozsular may tell you to temporarily stop using certain medications – in which case you should do so. If you take aspirin or any form of anticoagulant, tell Dr. Ozsular and continue only if he tells you to do so.

    Try to reduce how much salt you consume as well a few days before the surgery. This will reduce your risk of developing edema.

    You’re allowed to eat as well as drink water until 00:00 (12 AM) the night before your surgery. Since the surgery will be conducted with general anesthesia, you will need to fast for at least six hours prior to the procedure. (If you forget to do so, your surgery may be postponed or canceled.)

    You’ll need to wash your face before going to bed the night before the surgery, and do not put on any make-up before you come.

    Don’t wear nail polish or enamel.

    Don’t wear wigs. Don’t wear any jewelry (including piercings) – your body should be free of metal.

    Also, don’t forget to put together an overnight bag – including loose clothes (preferably with zippers/buttons)– before you come in for the surgery. You also should wear comfortable sneakers, and if you’re a woman, hair pins.

    On the morning of the surgery, you will be taken to your room to rest. Your final preparations for the surgery will be conducted. Dr. Ozsular and his assistant will come and visit you.

    The doctor will begin working on you as soon as you’re placed under anesthesia.

    Your dressing is done at the end of the operation. If under local anesthesia, you’ll then be taken to your room. If under general anesthesia, you’ll be woken up first and then taken to your room.

    The surgery will takes approximately 1 hour.

    You won’t feel any pain because you’ll be under the effects of general or local anesthesia. Afterwards, you can take mild analgesics to be comfortable the first days after the surgery.

    You’ll be able to drink a soup (warm, light, blended) 3 to 4 hours after the surgery. Don’t forget to gargle afterwards!

    Drink light/warm liquids for the first few days after the surgery – not forgetting to gargle afterwards, as directed.

    You’ll need to apply a cold compress on your jaw as directed by your doctor.

    After the surgery, you may be required to say overnight in hospital or you may be discharged on the same day, depending on your condition.

    The sutures in the mouth will be dissolvable, and thus won’t need to be removed.

    You will develop slight swelling and edema after the surgery – this is normal. It will subside 5 to 7 days later, revealing your new chin with it. You’ll be able to enjoy your new face averagely a week later.

    You won’t require any bed rest. When you feel better, you can go for walks and even sunbathe so long you don’t expose your chin to sunlight. Avoid doing intensive sports or running.

    Your first control will take place 4 to 7 days after the surgery. If all is deemed okay, you’ll be able to return home.

    You’ll be able to return to work and carry on with your normal routine 5 to 7 days after the surgery – provided you avoid doing intensive exercise.

    Your new chin will settle into its final shape roughly 1 to 2 months after the surgery. Your new face will accompany you everywhere you go, enjoy!

    Everything will return to normal 4 to 6 weeks later.

    Chin augmentation and chin reduction surgery both require to make a small incision on the inside of your mouth (inner part of the lower lip). Yes, there will be scarring, but nobody will be able to see them. Oral wounds heal over time to the point that they’ll be barely noticeable even from the inside of your mouth.

    Oral incisions mostly occur in larger surgeries to correct jaws with anomalies. In the surgeries where the oral incision cannot be used, incisions may be made under your chin to hide the scars. We will tell you where they’ll be before the surgery. They will disappear over time, but how fast they heal depends on your genetics, quality of life after surgery, and whether or not you smoke.

    We get asked this a lot because if there is another area on their body or face that they want to correct aesthetically, it is tempting to be beautiful in a few aesthetic areas when they wake up, while they are already anesthetized and a one-week rest period is arranged for the post-operative period.

    Regarding the combination of surgeries, your doctor will examine you and make a decision according to your blood values, age, health status, and the need for the surgery to be performed in the same surgery.

    If he gives you the green light, then you can have other surgeries planned as well.

    No, it won’t touch or even affect your vocal cords.

    Filler injection can be done to your chin area – usually for touchup purposes only. You’ll have to repeat this process every 6 to 9 months. It is conducted under local anesthesia.

    We can place a silicone implant into your chin. We’ll choose the shape and size of the implant according to your face. First, we make a small incision in your mouth, then we install the implant, and then close up the incision.

    We can also inject fat there too. First we remove fat from another part of your body (e.g. abdomen, inner thighs, hips, love-handles, or butt) via liposuction, put it into a closed and sterile environment. Next we process and purify it, and then inject it into your chin. This fat is rich in stem cells and will boost your tissue quality, vitality, and volume wherever it gets transfers. 50 - 60% of this fat will remain in the body; the rest will melt away.

    If your chin/jaw hangs abnormally forward apart from the rest of your face, the surgery can correct that! First, we’ll make a small incision in your mouth. Next, we’ll either sharpen excess part of the chin, or reshape your bone by shaving it with ultrasonic tools. You won’t have any visible scarring on your face outside; rather, the scar will remain inside your mouth and fade over time. This procedure will take 1 - 2 hours to complete, and will be conducted under general anesthesia.
