Overview of

V- Line Surgery (Mandibuloplasty)

in Thailand

V-line Mandibuloplasty is a popular cosmetic surgery that aims to reduce the width of the jawline. This facial contouring procedure removes some part of the mandible (jaw bone) so that it will heal to a more pointed shape that resembles the letter V.

Because certain cross-cultural beliefs associate beauty with having a more angular and pointed face, many of those who undergo this type of surgery perceive themselves as women and therefore want to achieve more feminine facial features.

Ideal candidates for this type of surgery should possess good overall health with an active lifestyle. They should be non-smokers with no history of auto-immune and bleeding disorders. Moreover, ideal candidates should have a clear understanding and realistic expectations regarding this procedure.

Pros and cons of

V- Line Surgery (Mandibuloplasty)

Pros

  • V-Line surgery helps patients achieve a slender and softer lower face profile.
  • The result of this procedure is permanent, which is good news for people who lack time and patience for non-permanent repetitive procedures. It is also amazing news for those who went through this treatment and achieved desired results.
  • Correction of  jaw and chin asymmetry.
  • This cosmetic treatment has different variations and offers custom treatment based on each individual's needs and preferences.
  • It can boost confidence and help improve a person's self-image
  • It gives shape to a short or square chin and enhances its appearance

Cons

  • V-line Mandibuloplasty can also bring about unfavorable outcomes such as inefficient healing or asymmetry of the jaw. Because it is a permanent procedure, patients who suffer from these post-surgical complications will have to go through another procedure to correct the problem.
  • Recovery usually takes several weeks, during which strenuous activities must be avoided.
  • Swelling and bruising are expected and some may take months to resolve.
  • There is also a small possibility of nerve damage, that may cause either temporary or long-term paralysis along the lower facial area.
  • This type of surgery can be costly and may not be covered by insurance since it is classified as an elective cosmetic procedure.

How it works:

V- Line Surgery (Mandibuloplasty)

Before surgery,  a thorough medical and physical assessment is necessary to ensure that the patient is fit to undergo the operation. The surgeon will also evaluate the patient's anatomy and how it is connected to the chin and the jaw. From this information, a custom-made surgical plan will be made and discussed with the patient.

To ensure safety and comfort, patients are administered general anesthesia just before the actual surgery. From there, precise incisions are made between the gum and the cheek, to access the jawbone.

To achieve the desired jawline, a bone may be removed from the back portion, thereby narrowing the shape of the lower jaw.

Some surgeons may opt to use a method called T-Osteotomy, a bone-cutting procedure to lengthen, shorten, or change the alignment of the chin.

Preparation before

V- Line Surgery (Mandibuloplasty)

Pre - treatment

Patients are advised to stop smoking and avoid taking any blood-thinning medication for at least two weeks prior to the operation. This is to avoid complications such as bleeding and infection and to ensure a faster recovery period. In addition to this, alcohol intake is strictly prohibited 48 hours before surgery.

The surgeon will also need to have a lengthy consultation with the patient before the appointment date. This is to address the patient's concerns and set clear and honest expectations.

Recovery after

Post - treatment

Initial recovery from this cosmetic procedure may take 10-14 days.  Immediately after surgery, the patient is expected to feel some pain and discomfort at the operation site. This can be relieved with over-the-counter analgesics and anti-inflammatory medications.  Some swelling and bruising are also normal and will subside in a few weeks.

During the healing process, the patient is advised to get enough rest and avoid strenuous activities. A soft food diet is also beneficial to avoid irritating the area.

To ensure optimal results and minimize swelling in the area, a compression bandage will need to be worn around the chin, neck, and jaw.

Changes in facial features are already evident a week after the surgery. However, it may take up to three weeks before the actual results show, all of which are permanent.

There will also be a follow-up consultation with the physician regarding the outcome of the surgery and additional post-recovery instructions.
