What is V-line Surgery?

V-line Surgery that creates a beautiful and natural-looking V-shaped face

Create a beautiful and natural V-shaped face

Square jaw



In general, when the lower jaw is developed, and the chin is angled, not only does the face look big, but it also gives a strong impression. Plastic surgery to make such a face into a V-shaped face is commonly called V-line surgery.

Correcting the square jaw gives a smaller face and a softer chin line for a sharper look. In addition, if the genioplasty is performed together, more improvement can be obtained.

JW’s V-line Surgery completes the natural and pretty V-line, considering the proportions, shape, and length of the square jaw and the tip of the chin rather than cutting a lot of bones for a slim V-line.

Features of JW’s V-line Surgery

Smooth V line without secondary angle

Long-curve osteotomy is performed to complete a smooth V-line without bumpiness on the face.

No scar! Minimize bruising and swelling!

The surgery is performed through a small incision inside the mouth, so there is no externally exposed scar. In addition, v-line is made at once without repetitive bone resection, so swelling, bruising, and pain are minimized, which allows patients to return to their daily life more quickly.

JW’s V-line surgery considers the face shape of an individual for a beautiful facial line and completes the perfect V-line by performing Square jaw reduction, Genioplasty, Cortical osteotomy, and Masseter muscle reduction.

In V-line Surgery, it is important to create a beautiful jaw shape that is harmonized with the face, instead of focusing on reducing the size of the jaw.

#1 | Long-curve Square Jaw Ostectomy

Long-curve square jaw osteotomy is an operation that cuts the lower jaw from the under-ear part to the mouth corner in a long-curved shape. This operation changes a square lower jaw to a smooth and beautiful jawline when viewed from both at the front and side.

This procedure can be performed even to those whose jaw is severely asymmetric.

Type Long-curve Square Jaw Ostectomy Mandibular Angles Ostectomy
Surgical sites The jawbone is cut from the angular parts under the ears to the corners of the mouth. The angular parts under the ears are removed.
Scar Incisions are made inside the mouth so that the scars cannot be seen. Incisions are made behind the ears and the scars are visible.
Effects A slim and beautiful face shape both at the front and the side. A slim jawline from the side.
Jawline A smooth V-shaped jawline without any angles Additional angles may be generated.

#2 | T-shaped Ostectomy

T-shaped osteotomy is a procedure that cuts the wide anterior jaw bone in a T-shape, and push them inwards into the middle.

The width of the chin can be reduced, and the chin shape can be corrected, making the overall jawline into a slim and beautiful V-line shape.

#3 | Cortical Osteotomy

Cortical osteotomy is an operation to create a slim jawline by excising an appropriate amount of the outer cortical bone as if peeling a thick banana peel.

Although the outer cortical bone is only cut about 2mm, it makes a big difference on a full face. Also, if muscles or fats are overdeveloped, they can be removed at the same time to achieve a more significant effect.

Since the cortical bone is located closest to the skin, it should be by an experienced specialist as it may cause side effects of secondary angles, which may result in unevenness or other angles on the face.

#4 | Masseter Muscle Reduction

It is a procedure to decrease the number of muscle cells using radiating high frequency with a micro-syringe. At this time, the degenerated muscle cells will not be regenerated once again, so it can be said to be a semi-permanent procedure.

Particularly, when the masseter muscle is overdeveloped due to the chewing function, the thickened muscles can be reduced to obtain a slimming jawline effect.
