V-line Surgery

V Line Surgery In Korea (Jaw Surgery)
The key to success with V-line Surgery is to create a beautiful V-shaped face

What is V-line Surgery?

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

An overdeveloped lower jaw or a square jaw is generally associated with masculinity and makes your face look big and fierce.

By correcting a square jaw (jaw surgery), you can attain a smaller and more beautiful face. In addition, your face will feature gentle contours and your neck will look much longer.

JW’s V-line Surgery in Korea creates the best face shape for you by considering your jawline, its shape, and length, instead of simply cutting the jawbone.

  • Those who have a flat lower jaw.
  • Those who have a long jaw or an asymmetric jaw.

General square jaw reduction vs JW’s V-line Surgery

General Square Jaw Reduction

General square jaw reduction only cuts the edges of a square jaw, the so-called mandibular angles. This operation smoothes and slenderizes the lower jaw shape from the side, but you cannot expect significant effects for a full face.

As it solely reshapes the angles under the ears, other facial angles may occur after an operation. If the jawbone is excessively removed, the jaw may be transformed into a so-called dog jaw. In severe cases, it may cause nerve damage.

JW’s V-line Surgery

We create a beautiful jaw line by cutting the jawbone from the mandibular angles to the front, maintaining natural curves.

JW’s V-line Surgery finds the best face shape for you and makes your face look much smaller both from the front and side. V-line square jaw reduction contains long-curve square jaw reduction, cortex ostectomy 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.

Features of JW’s V-line Surgery

Smooth V-shaped face without angles

Although there are numerous ways for square jaw ostectomy, we use long-curve ostectomy to prevent other angles. Using this method, we create a smooth and beautiful jaw shape.

No scars! Minimized bruises and swelling!

We make a small incision inside the mouth so that the scar cannot be seen. Since we reshape a jawline without ostectomy to minimize swelling, bruises, and pain, you can return to your normal life.

One-on-one V-line Surgery

Considering the patient’s jaw shape, size and health conditions, we may apply ostectomy or remove muscles and fat if necessary.

A wealth of experience and expertise

All operations are performed by JW’s medical professionals specialized in facial bone contouring surgery.

Safe and systematic cooperative system

For safe V-line Surgery, JW’s medical professionals provide one-on-one care service encompassing pre-operative care and post-operative management.

We create a beautiful jaw line by combining V-line Surgery with long-curve square jaw ostectomy, T-ostectomy, cortex ostectomy, or muscle reduction, considering the patient’s facial bones.

V-line Procedures

#1 | Long-curve Square Jaw Ostectomy

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

V-line Surgery is applicable to those whose jaw is severely asymmetric.

TypeLong-curve Square Jaw OstectomyMandibular Angles Ostectomy
Surgical sitesThe jawbone is cut from the angular parts under the ears to the corners of the mouth.The angular parts under the ears are removed.
ScarIncisions are made inside the mouth so that the scars cannot be seen.Incisions are made behind the ears and the scars are visible.
EffectsA slim and beautiful face shape both at the front and the side.A slim jawline from the side.
JawlineA smooth V-shaped jawline without any anglesAdditional angles may be generated.

#2 | T-shaped Ostectomy

T-shaped ostectomy is generally applied to those who have a wide square jaw. The front jawbone is cut in a T-shape and tightened inwards. T-shaped ostectomy that reduces the width of the jaw is effective for creating a slim and beautiful V-shaped jawline.

#3 | Outer Cortex Ostectomy

Human bones consist of three layers: outer cortical bone, cancellous bone, and inner cortical bone. Generally, cortical bones refer to the hardest bone structure, the so-called outer cortical bones. By only cutting the outer cortical bone layer, we can create a beautiful face shape.

As you would peel a thick banana skin, we cut the outer cortical bone to create a slim jawline. Although the outer cortical bone is only cut about 2mm, it makes a big difference on a full face. If the patient has overdeveloped muscles or fat, they need to be removed as well for better effects. If cortical bones adjacent to the skin are not properly cut, the patient may experience side effects such as uneven skin or other angles on the face.

Therefore, outer cortex ostectomy should be performed by experienced specialists with extensive experience.

#4 | Masseter Muscle Reduction

We can decrease the number of muscle cells, instead of reducing their size, by radiating high frequency with a micro syringe. The degraded muscle cells will never be regenerated.

In particular, those who have overdeveloped masticatory muscles can enjoy noticeable effects.
