What is V-Line Jawline Contouring, and how does it work?
V-Line jaw contouring is a surgical procedure that adjusts your jawline and the surrounding muscles to produce a more slim, feminine look. V-Line jaw contouring can fix:
- Double chins
- U-shaped jaws
- Square jaws
- Large cheeks
- A masculine jawline (for women)
We perform V-Line jaw contouring under general anesthesia, and Dr. Lyos has several customizable techniques he can use to accomplish your goals. Each step of the procedure will involve small incisions, with the underlying muscle and bone adjusted to produce beautiful results. Jaw contouring is very safe and effective when performed by a qualified surgeon.
Who is a candidate for V-Line jawline contouring in Texas?
If you’re unhappy with the shape of your jaw, are in generally good health, and desire a softer and more feminine jawline, then you are likely a good candidate. However, as with any medical procedure, only an in-person consultation with Dr. Lyos can determine whether or not this procedure is right for you.
What recovery and downtime will I need with V-Line jaw contouring?
While the recovery time varies by person, you can expect the following:
- Right after receiving V-Line jaw contouring, you can expect swelling and bruising in your jaw that may last up to two weeks. It usually peaks within the first two days and then gets better each day.
- While you’re healing, you will need to avoid strenuous activities and eat soft foods.
Most patients resume their normal life activities and return to work within one week of surgery.
What’s the difference between V-Line and chin augmentation?
V-Line jaw contouring and chin augmentation could be considered the opposite ends of the jawline adjustment spectrum, with jaw contouring producing a slimming effect and chin augmentation shaping your jaw to improve definition and handle weak-looking jaws and underbites.
V-Line jaw contouring is primarily for women and is especially popular with those of ethnic backgrounds who desire to soften the lower portion of their faces. Chin augmentation is perfect for both men and women, though it is most common for men who want to create a stronger, more manly jawline.
